Check the AC adapter and power cord. if the power cables are fine. it would mean a motherboard replacement and you need to call the DELL Support team

SOURCE: Dell Vostro 1000 won't turn on/no power at all

The power connector within the laptop maybe broken. Not sure about Dell's but many laptops have only solder points holding the internal power connector to the motherboard. With too much agitation, the internal power connector becomes loose and then broken.

More info will help, does a light show on the laptop when it is plugged in? Have you tried removing the battery and lettting the laptop sit for about 10 mins, without any power? Have you re-seated the ram?

These are all possibilities of the symptom you have.
Let me know and G'luck!

SOURCE: My dell vostro 1000 laptop's display ain

if i read this right, when you power up the laptop you get fan spin but no display ?, if you just get fan spin and the green power light and nothing else the you have a motherboard failure, if you get LED activity and it seems to be working but you only have no display the its more likely LCD failure, if you DO get activity try this : power off the system, press power button while holding down the D key, this will run the LCD BIST SELF TEST which will run through full colour screens if fails this test you will et a beep code, please bear in mind you will only be able to run that test if you get LED activity, if you dont have activity then the motherboard needs replacing

My Dell Vostro 1000 keeps shutting off. Cure?


I am having the same problem.
I used to think that maybe the problem was related to overheating so I I bought a cooling pad with fan. This improved the situation somewhat, but, the problem continues.
My friend thinks it is related to the power supply/power cord.

My dell vostro 1000 won't turn on the green light


Try to do this: (Draining flea power)
1. Unplug the ac adapter (if connected)
2. Remove the battery
3. Press and hold the power button for at least 10sec.
4. Put back the battery and ac adapter
5. Turn it on

- check if you can now boot to windows, if not there could be a hardware problem and next step would be running some diagnostic test on the computer for hardware problem.

Vostro 1000 wont charge also 2nd machine same model has a ic blown on mainboard where can i get a schematic diagram also is there a general known fault with the charging circuiton this model . Rgds


Schematics for Dells are generally unavailable.
The not charging is normally due to a failure on the charging circuit or damage to the power plug (If ac adapter will not run system or if you have to play with the power connection.)
Replacement motherboards start at about $75

Heard pop and dell vostro 1000 cut off and will not come back on


Based on the symptoms (Power light on cord is on when not connected to laptop but goes out as soon as you plug it in), the motherboard has to be replaced. YOu may call dell to ask about their out-of-warranty depot or you can call their spare parts sales dept to purchase the motherboard, then find a local tech to replace it.
