Dell inspiron 1150 wont power up the power light flashes green and batery light flashes orange but the fans or any thing else wont work


You may have a burnt board or the input pin is bad, try wiggling the pin while it is plugged in to see if you can at least get the fans to start you obviously have a short of power in the power button area. You may want to try replacing the power button board for your model this may offer you a solution. If you take it in they can test it with a meter to make sure that this is the problem before a board issue is determined. It is difficult to diagnose this kind of things without the machine in front of me. My advice is to take it in and have the power investigated.
Just because the lighting on the battery is going and showing signs of life does not mean the power button is not bad or not getting the proper power to start the computer. It seems to me that the power button board is bad. Or the input cord pin may be shorted out and only supplying power to the mains but not the power button circuitry. Just a good guess!......John

Do not fear because all may not be lost! Follow these steps to determine why your computer won't turn on.
Difficulty: Average Time Required: Anywhere from 10 minutes to a few hours or more depending on why the computer won't turn on Here's How:
  1. Try to relax! There's a good chance you can figure out exactly why your computer won't start and then get it back up and running.
    I don't usually start a troubleshooting guide with the same advice a therapist might give her client, but when faced with a computer that won't start most people tend to panic, worried that all the data on their PC is gone forever.
    It's true that the most common reason a computer won't start is because a piece of hardware has failed or is causing a problem but that hardware isn't usually a hard drive. Your data is probably safe - just not accessible.
  2. . Try these steps if your computer will not turn on and is showing no sign at all of receiving power - no fans running and no lights on the computer case.
    Important: You may or may not see a light on the back of your PC depending on the kind of power supply you have and the exact cause of the problem.
    Note: Don't worry about the monitor yet. If the computer is not turning on because of a power issue then the monitor certainly can't display anything from the computer. Your monitor light will likely be amber/yellow if your computer has stopped sending information to it.
  3. Follow these steps if, when you turn your computer on, it promptly powers back off.
    You'll probably hear the fans inside your computer turn on, see the lights on the front of your computer turn on or flash, and then it will all stop - always before the boot process is complete. You may or may not also hear beeping coming from inside your PC
  • If your desktop computer does nothing at all when you try to start it, first check that the power cable is securely plugged in at the back of the computer as well as into a working power outlet. It's amazing how often this is the case.
  • If you're starting from a button on the keyboard, make sure the keyboard is connected to the computer.
  • If the computer is plugged into a surge protector, see if the surge protector has a reset switch that you can push. (If it doesn't have a reset switch and the problem is with the surge protector, it will need to be replaced.) Try plugging a lamp or other device into one of the surge protector's outlets to make sure it's working.
  • If you can hear the computer's fan or hard-disk drive, or if you can see indicator lights on the main unit but the monitor stays dark, make sure that the monitor is connected to a working power source, that it's turned on and that it's securely connected to the computer via the video cable.
  • If the monitor and computer have power but the computer displays a "Non-system disk or disk error" message, check to make sure you didn't leave a disk in the A: drive. If you did, eject it and restart the computer.
  • If the operating system still won't start even though the computer and monitor have power, try restarting with a Windows CD-ROM in the CD-ROM drive or, if you've got a Macintosh, with a Mac OS disc in the CD-ROM drive. (You can start a Mac from the CDROM drive by holding down the C key while starting up.)
  • If the operating system then starts, your problem is probably with the startup hard drive or with the operating system installed on it. If you can't fix the drive, you'll have to replace it
  • please tell how these work by staying how help

    I have a power problem with my Toshiba Tecra S2. It lost power while I was playing Solitaire. All lights on the front are off. Plugging out and in again did lit the lights. But when I hit the power button...


    When a computer shuts down by itself and will not start up again straight away, until it has cooled down. Then this is an overheating problem.
    This is caused by a faulty fan and/or the fan and heat-sink assembly is clogged with dust.
    If the computer is not on a flat surface then the vents may not have clear for good ventilation.
    Check the fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
    Clean and vacuum the dust from the fan and heat-sink assembly.

    If the CD drive door won't open, odds are that at least you know the drive is without power. Have you had the case opened up at all? With what you've described here your computer needs the tender, loving care of a technician.

    Won't Start


    This happened to my to my HP Media center Edition PC. I'd have to unplug the power from the outlet, let it stop flashing and the power up again. It would run for a short time and then shut off with the annoying amber / blue flashing light.

    I found it was a heat problem on mine - specifically, the CPU cooler. After shutting down and opening the PC, check to see 1) if the CPU fan is running smoothly and 2) if there is a lot of dust and dirt on the CPU cooling fan and heat sink (and rest of the case for that matter).

    Gently clean / vacuum the insides of the case AND power supply as best you can. Carefully vac the fan blades and heat sink to clear the dirt and dust that prevents the heat from being blown away by the fans.

    When complete, you might even want to take the PC outside and reverse the vacuum so that air can be blown into tight places in the case. A can og compressed air can do the job instead, too.

    Reassemble and start up as normal. Good luck!

    (1) How do I turn off the computer fan from surging?


    As far as the fan issue goes, especially if it's a laptop, blow out the fan exhaust area. Use compressed air to blow out the ventilation area in the opposite direction that air flows through it normally. You'll be amazed how much dust comes out. You can try one of those crappy over-priced ridiculously low pressure canned air deals but to really get it clean, find someone with an air compressor. A mechanic friend or someone in construction that uses an air nailer maybe? If it's a desktop, try blowing out the processor heat sink preferably with the fan removed. Be careful, start at lower pressure and slowly work your way up. Also, if you take the fan off of the heat sink, be careful not to knock the heat sink off of the processor or you will need to clean both surfaces (heat sink and processor), reapply a thin layer of heat sink grease, and reinstall the heat sink and fan assembly. I'll leave the second half of you question open incase both issues are one-in-the-same.
