I have a Dell Inspiron 5100. I've had it for about three years. One day it did the same thing, no power, no fan, nothing. I replaced the power supply with a 350 watt unit from Office Max. I spent about $40 and I'm using my Dell to send you this response.

When I work on my laptop it suddenly shut down, blue screen, many written things, and


This sounds like a BSOD (Blue Screen of Death). Check for that in Google. Image at www.bsod.org.

Did that happen once or is it more frequent?

It could be heat, blow out the dust bunnies with compressed air.

If it is infrequent, it is a part of the price of using Windows.

If it is more frequent, try to see what the failures have in common. If you are always using the same program when it happens, see if there is an upgrade for the program.

More information will be necessary to solve this.

I have a Dell Inspiron 1525, I purchased a new battery and a new charger and I still getting the message that it's plugged in but not charging. What could be the problem?


Your problem is that the power jack in your actual laptop is loose. it may not seem like it is but one of the 3 connections (positive, negitive, data) that hold the jack to the board broke. In this case its the data connection that tells the laptop what kind of adapter is plugged in, and dell laptops wont charge without knowing that. Solution- 1.Pay someone to replace the power jack 2. If you can solder, by a new jack (around $5) and disassemble the laptop and replace it yourself.

Dell 4400 Main power in house went off while using my computer and then went back on about an hour later. Now when I try and restart the PC, the power button light turns yellow like it is in sleep mode...


The power supply or mother board probably went out. Did any other items in the house stop working? This happened to me years ago and the electric company reimbursed me for damages.
You can try unplugging the power cord for a few minutes, then retry listen for any beeps from the computer. If it is powering on but nothing on the screen and no beeps *********** board is probably toast.

6 month old dell inspiron 1764 says can not identify a/c power adapter works with only the battery and works with charger will maintain around 50% but not charge


HI there,

In most instances, just as you've described yours, the culprit is usually the charger. It's not uncommon for the charging system in the charger to cease to function while the power function continues to work. This is particularly true of Dell chargers.

If the laptop is still under warranty, call Dell Support and they'll almost surely send you a new charger because this problem is considered to be a possible safety hazard.

Since Dell's standard factory warranty is for 1 year, they should be able to help you. If not, and you have to purchase a new battery on your own, be sure to purchase ONLY a Dell charger

My computer won't start. Power supply (ttgi 450ss) has a blinking green light and the power supply fan starts when plugged in. Motherboard (asus m2npv-vm) has a green light illuminated between the pci...


See if you plugged in the 4 pin power connector on the motherboard besides the main power connection on the power supply (usually black colored and its a plastic 4 pin connector)

Try another power supply if all else fails. If new power supply does not work with this unit then its a motherboard which is blown and motherboard needs replacing.

Hope this helps

First thing check that the battery charge light is on when the battery and the charger are connected.
If it is it indicates that the power supply is charging the battery,
If it isnt it may indicate a fault with the battery or that the charger is not compatable with the laptop or that there is a fault with the charger.
If the battery is charging then try running the laptop on battery only without the charger and on charger only without the battery.
This will eliminate which one is faulty.

You mentioned that if you wiggle the cord then the light comes on again.
Check to see if the charger end plug is lose or the actual port on the laptop is lose.
If the charger plug is lose then return to seller and make sure they gave you the correct charger. if the actual port on laptop is lose then perhaps u got a bad connection and you need electrician or local laptop technician to open it up and solder properly on motherboard.

Let me know how it goes.

Dell Inspiron flashing amber power light, not charging


I would think the batteries need replacing. That happened to my Dell Latitude CPI. The batteries won't charge past about 3%, so I got new ones and that did the trick. If this is under a year old I would contact Dell about it, if it is under a year old they should replace the batteries.

Hope this helps.

Computer doesn't come on.


Easy check is: power the system off. Unplug the power supply from the outlet. Hold the power on button in for at least 10 seconds. Remove the CMOS battery. Reconnect the power supply to power. Attempt to power up. See what happens. If it comes up and asks for you to set config, power down, unplug the power supply and hold the power on button for 10 secs. Replace the CMOS battery with a new one (CR2032 button battery...about $5 for 2 in the Wal-Mart photo dept) and power on. The reason for the repetition is to reset the BIOS.

Dell SX260...Wont Boot...Power Button Flashing Amber....grrrr!


Try these (un order of degree of difficulty) 1. Try replacing the battery on the system board. it is  typically a CR2032 button-style battery. This helps if the computer has been off for a long time.  2. Make sure all dust has been blown or vacuumed out of the computer. 3. Check to see if the USB pins are bent inside the connector on the back and the front of the computer. Straighten if possible. 4. Remove add-in cards, fans, shrouds, and heatsinks, then check the system board for leaky or mushroomed capacitors. If you would like, this may also be a good time to see if the processor is seated correctly or possibly short-circuited (burned black on the bottom, burnt or missing pins, etc). If it is any of these, you may need a new system board (motherboard) 5. It may be that you need a new power supply. Do your best to make sure that it will fit your computer case and have all the power connectors you need; they are not created equal.
