Question about Dell Computers & Internet

1 Answer

My Dell Inspiron Mini 10 will not turn on even when I have the power cord plugged directly in to the notebook. When I press power all that happens is the battery light flashes white and red quickly. I was working fine plugged in a couple hours ago, and the all of a sudden my screen said I had 4 minutes to plug in the cord into a power outlet or I would loose my data. But the cord was already plugged in????

As long as you buy a genuine Dell AC adapter, it will be find.
Do not buy a 3rd party AC adapter.

I have bought at least a dozen Dell AC adapters on eBay. Just make sure the photo shows a genuine Dell.

My dell inspiron mini notebook wont turn on


Is it getting power? Check the plug at the computer for DC volts? Has the AC/DC jack in the laptop been damaged due to pulling on the cord? Try another cord/charger with the EXACT same power specs.

How do i boot my dell inspiron mini


The problem is most likely in the DC jack in the laptop, it works it self loose over time until there is no power or intermittent power. The only solution is to dismantle the laptop down to the motherboard level to replace the plug or resolder back in place.

Try a different power cord. You should have at least one spare. Spare power cords are available on eBay for $10 or so.

This could indicate a bad battery. Try removing the battery and powering on the laptop. If the power LED remains white then you have a problem with the charging circuit. That means your battery could be defective or the battery charging circuit on your motherboard is faulty.

My Dell Inspiron Mini hasn't been used for some time. I've plugged it in, but it won't turn on. What could be the problem and how can I fix it?


The battery might be dead. The first thing to check is the power supply. If the battery is dead, it needs to be plugged into the transformer, but if the transformer is not putting out the required voltage (somewhere around 18V.) then it won't start.
