Question about Dell Inspiron 5160 Notebook
My dell 5160 wont turn on. I put battery in and i try and power up the laptop and the battery light blinks 3 time for a total of 9 flashes. I plug in ac adaptor get green and orange light then back to the same orange light blinking. Take battery out and leave ac adaptor in and no change. What can i do to fix it.
I am facing a similar problem with 5160 and my power button will not power up the laptop. I presses the shift key, it got powered up (offcourse only fan started but the screen is black)
Try pressing shift key to power up.
