1. Take the battery out of the laptop & try to turn on the laptop using power adapter only. If the computer turns on, then the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.
2. Make sure the power adapter is not defective. Test the output voltage of the power adapter using a voltmeter. Compare the voltmeter reading to the nominal value written on the adapter or the laptop.
3. Make sure the DC jack is not loose or broken. A loose DC jack will need to be re-soldered. A broken one will need to be replaced.
4. If you have another processor which is compatible with your laptop's model, try swapping processors & test to see if the laptop will work.
5. The power button could be bad.

6. The motherboard could be defective & needs to be replaced.

I am having issues with my laptop Dell Vostro 1510. Getting a black screen and white cursor in the upper left hand corner.


The error code indicates that the system is not able to access or detect any Hard Disk Drive.
If comfortable you can try the following:
1. Open your laptop following the below guide
2. Look for the Hard Disk Drive
3. Remove it from the system
4. Re-seat the Hard Disk drive
5. Re-start the system

If still the HDD is not detected I am afraid to say that the Drive is gone bad and needs a replacement.

Kindly feel free for any further clarification or assistance.

Vostro 1510 screen black and lock #9 blinking blue


Try reseating RAM. The flashing lights indicates a fault on the motherboard. I read online where this fixed many laptops but not all and not mine. I suspect the motherboard is dead in my case. May be same for you but first try reseating RAM, hard drive and maybe the processor.

That is the sign of a bad hard drive, or your OS being erased.

It sounds like your hard drive has gone bad. As this is a laptop you can try to reseat the hard drive, if that does not help then it might be a case of hard drive crash.

My Dell Vostro 1000 computer shuts off within 25 seconds of turning on. It doesn't have time to repair itself before shutting off. I've checked the fan, power supply, battery, and removed the hard drive...


Has this problem been resolved? My immediate suspicion is an underpowered peripheral--do you have some sort of expansion card or adapter in your Express Card slot? If you have something like a USB 3.0 adapter or TV tuner card, remove it or provide it with an external power supply.

I got a hard dish read error..


A hard disk read error is normally an indication of a failing hard drive. If you can, back up any important data because you will most likely need to replace the hard drive.
