Wont start up

I have a dell inspiron 6000 and it is only 3 years old. When i try to start it, it won't even load. We have tried to reformat it but it won't allow us to do that. I have no idea what happened it, it was working perfectly until 1 day it just stopped turning on.

    Hi Rachel,

    Could you be more specific on the problem, ie. are you getting power to the system and does it stay on ?

    As you have written, that you tried formatting but nothing happened , did you get any error while attempting to do that ?



    Try the following steps

    1. Tap on the F12 key slowly five times, after you power on the system and see the DELL logo screen

    2 You would get the Boot menu.

    3. Run IDE drive diagnostics or go to the Diagnostics option, if there is an error with the hardware the same would let you know



    Thanks

That usually means the file system is corrupt.

Put on recharging at least half an hour.
Before, try to take a battery out and firmly clean contacts for battery.

Dell Inspiron 6000 (approx 4 years old) has an issue with the power cord internal connection? Battery and Power cord/adapter are fine. Computer constantly switches from battery to AC when powered on. ...


The input jack that is soldered to the motherboard (where the AC jack plugs in) probably has a cold solder joint. Thus the laptop switches from battery to AC power. You can try to have the solder joints
re-soldered.

Just purchased a new 160gb Hard Drive for my old Dell Inspiron 6000; originally it was only 60 gb. I tried to install it, it said "not able to read HD". Actual connectors look a little different. Any...


Well the old Dell takes ATA connections. Newer laptops are SATA. Which did you buy?
A new disk drive needs to be partitioned and the operating system needs loaded. Did you do that?
Did you back up all your data to an external device so you can load it on the new disk?

Dell Inspiron 6000: No Boot Up after BIOS loads


You can download a small program called memtest 86 which is an ISO for creating a bootable cd that will test the ram. You can get it from: http://www.memtest86.com/download.html

Also the HD may be the problem even if the BIOS can see it. Pull the HD and try booting from the xp disk again.

Hope this helps

Dell inspiron 6000


On ac power when you hit the power button, if there are no lights, it could be the power supply. If there are lights, try starting it without the battery, ac only. If there are lights and it still doesn't start after removing the battery, try a different memory chip. On Dell machines the battery can acquire a dead short causing it to not start. Also if the memory chip/chips have gone out it will cause it not to start. If it still will not start after these three it's a motherboard problem and will most likely have to be replaced.

You can also pick up the batteries less expensive than most computer places at batteries plus. And yes it sounds as though it is the batteries charge is getting low, especially if it runs fine when the battery is out and you have it plugged in.
