When the system doesn't light at all, it indicates a failed component on the motherboard. Check the jack on the computer to see if it's loose or noticeably broken. If not, thenyou will need to take it in for a professional diagnosis in order to track down the exact problem component.

E system 1212 Laptop won't switch on. Power


Laptops are so integrated that usually a system failure that involves power issues such as in your case where you cant get it turn on with anything on the screen mean the mainboard (motherboard) is damaged. This usually leads to buying a new laptop or paying for the board to be replaced which usually costs as much as the laptop.

My dell laptop dont turn on


Is there a green light on your power supply that plugs in the wall? If not, the power supply is dead or there's a problem on the motherboard.
To troubleshoot, unplug the laptop from the power supply, unplug the power supply from the wall. Now, plug the power supply into the wall, you should see a green or blue light. If there's a plastic spot for the light but no light is coming on, replace the power supply - better to try a known working on before spending the money on a new replacement first.
If there is a light, plug it into the laptop. If the light goes out when you plug it in, there could be a motherboard problem and the board needs to be replaced or the power jack is damaged and you need a professional to replace it.
If the light is on the whole time, but laptop does not turn on, this could also mean that the board is still bad.
Regardless if it doesn't power up with a good power supply it is usually a motherboard problem and the board needs to be replaced.
Check with dell to see if its under warranty and they will send the parts needed and a tech to replace if it is. You can also ask about purchasing a warranty so your money is better spent to keep your laptop alive and put it towards something useful for the lngevity of the system instead of just paying for the part and a tech.

Dell d610 wont turn on ac adapter light is green


There is a small IC that Dell solders into their power supply as well as their batteries. When this parts fails you will have the type of problem you are having now. If you do a search on the web you will find a large number o sites that discuss this. Unfortunately there is no fix other than replacing your power supply. I had to do the same thing myself for the Dell laptop I use.

Power light shuts off after only 3 seconds


Disconnect the AC adaptor from the laptop and remove the Battery pack from the Battery bay. Then, remove the RAM module and reinstall it after cleaning the RAM slot. Next, connect the AC adaptor to the laptop then try turning it ON. Please make sure that the AC adaptor is connected to a functional wall outlet. If the laptop still doesn't turn ON then you may try cleaning the Battery bay and the metal contacts in the battery compartment then insert the battery and try turning ON the laptop. If the laptop still doesn't turn ON then the issue is with the power supply unit.

I am having a hard time finding the manual for this older laptop, but, there is always a power button somewhere on the laptop itself, on the side, front, top of the keyboard, push everything and anything till you find it. Just plugging it in will not turn it on.
