Dell OptiPlex GX620 no boot sometimes it appears black screen with a cursor blinking


When you plug in the power cord is there any lightswhatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of thepower cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning,lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear theDvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for asecond or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, butthe screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with thelaptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issuewhen you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous.

Maybe your power cord is bad if you don't get anything to happen whatsoeverwhen you press the power button. And if that's true maybe you wasoperating off the battery the last time you had it on and since the power cordis bad, it was not charging the battery so the battery is drained and the powercord is bad.

Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, Remove theBattery, then Press and Hold the power button for 30seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in (leave the batteryout) and hit the power button to see if it boots. If it does, you can putthe battery back in and let it charge.Maybe your DC Power Jack which is where the power cord plugsinto the computer is bad. Take an ink pen and push the tip inside thejack and see if the little pin wiggles, if so the jack is bad. You'll have totake the laptop apart to fix it. Most times it is soldered onto themotherboard, so you will have to desolder the old and solder a new one.

Hi,
1.Remove the power cable.
2.Push the start button several times.
3.Plug in the power cable
4.Try to start the computer.

If this doesn't help then you have a failed hardware.
Explain where this tick sound comes from.

My new battery is not charging what is the problem


If you have purchased a new battery for your laptop because the old one also refused to charge, the problem is likely the connection inside the laptop where the battery connects to the machine itself. Correcting this issue would mean some serious work, and I would not advise that you do this yourself, as it is easy to cause more problems while trying to correct that one. Your best option is to take it in and have it serviced by a professional, or at the very least have your new battery tested to see if it is simply defective. I wish I could give you a 'do it yourself' answer to this, but to try fixing the connection pins yourself would mean taking your laptop apart, and with the compact nature of laptops, there is a lot of room for error when disassembling it - you could end up needing a whole new laptop with just the slightest mistake.

Hi,

If you are referring to the files inside the hard drive, then as long as it is not defective, it will last a very long time. Most hard disks can retain data indefinitely .

As to your concern with the laptop's charger/power supply jack, it is very possible that the connector simply lost its connection inside the motherboard. This could be easily remedied by re-soldering the two (2) pins of the said jack. What might be a challenge is the opening of the laptop to expose the underbelly of the motherboard.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
