Question about Dell Inspiron 6000 Notebook

Won't Turn On

My laptop slipped out of my hands six inches off the floor and now will not turn on. When I press the power button, the power light blinks as long as I'm pressing the button. At the same time the laptop makes no sound and seems practically dead. 
I've removed the battery, hard drive, and RAM and then put the parts back which worked once. I tried it again after shutting my laptop off and now will not turn on at all. I repeated the steps and nothing has changed. I tried turning on the laptop without the battery and only plugged in with the AC and this doesn't work either.
Any ideas?  Thanks in advance.

Im having the same problem.
i've heard that replacing the dc jack fixes it.
i currently have my lappy sitting in front of me in 100 parts.
im going to radioshack tomorrow to get a dc jack. im also going to get a new power adapter and battery just in case.
if it doesnt work than new computer for me...

Unfortunately, it sounds like the board cracked. But if holding the button down illuminates it, then maybe all is not lost. Did the unit hit the floor sideways?

My Asus X553M laptop is not booting up. Any ideas how to fix this problem?


Temitope, Hard reset. Open computer, remove battery,hold power button down (((1 minute))), reinsert battery, reassemble laptop, push/hold power button a couple seconds.
2nd fix, try to boot laptop without hdd.(hard drive). Remove the hdd, then turn on the laptop.. then it can get into the bios.. reset the bios to the default setting, turn off the laptop, and then turn it on again with hdd reinstalled. This seems to be what works in the forums with this issue found in Asus laptops. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Laptop Fan and Power Indicator won't turn off.


Are you sure you are turning it off completely. Sounds like you have it sleeping or hibernating. Press and hold the power button for 15 seconds or so, it should power off completely.

My dell vostro 2510 won't power on, when i press power button to turn on the pc , the power light turn on for about 5 sec then it turn off itself,


Try this to see if can give us some codes with it's on board diagnostics. Hold down the function button of your laptop and then the power button while still holding down the Fn/Function button on the left side of the keyboard. See if this gives you either an error message on your screen or, flashing lights above your keyboard. Pay attention, write down what lights where lit up what ones flashed, etc. This is to diagnose if the LCD isn't working. Comment back if you get either the light code or the error code on the screen. IF nothing happens try holding the Fn/Function button on the left side of keyboard and holding the F4 button, see if that makes any lights flash above your keyboard.

Power button has sliped agine agine


Hmmmm, well even if the power button has 'slipped' you should still be able to press it with a pencil to turn it on (even taking off the button and just pressing the button Underneath may help).
Sorry if I don't understand, you might have to elaborate.
