Question about Dell Inspiron 5160 Notebook
I have Dell Inspiron 5160 bought 4 years back. When I press power button it is not powering up. If I press shift key it powers up but the screen is black. Only fan is running and the green and orange lights are flashing. CD/DVD tray opens up but no sign of bootin up or anything. To shut off the power I need to remove ac adaptor and then battery.
Can you pl help and suggest a solution.
Thanks in Advance.
There is a small board that the power button is integrated into that connects to the motherboard. When this power board malfunctions it will cause this issue with the machine. It can, and quite often does, damage the motherboard when it malfinctions. You should take the machine in for a power board replacement and a diagnostic to make sure that the power board hasn't damaged the motherboard.
