Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have a dell inspiron 5000e that won't power up. the battery is dead but the adapter works. after pressing the power button the left light beneath the screen turns a solid green and the center light blinks green. the light on the right does not become active.. the fan turns on briefly--- 5-10 seconds-- than stops. nothing more. the bios screen and the windows starting up screen showed up initially but no more. i've tried plugging in a seperate monitor but no results. pulled and reinserted battery and harddrive. haven't tried the memory yet. screen is now dark and blank. acts like something is stalling out the power completion. i'm not sure if this is poignant or not but if i leave it sit overnight and it totally cools down, the screen has responded and after firing up gets to the startup screen and then stalls. thanks

Dell inspiron 1520 won't turn on.


Remove the battery from its compartment on the side of your Dell Inspiron laptop computer.


Remove the power adapter from its plug on the side of the Dell Inspiron (if your laptop is currently plugged into a wall outlet).


Press down and hold the "Power" button on the laptop for one to two minutes. This will dispel the excess electrical current that is built up inside the laptop.


Put the battery back inside the compartment of your Dell Inspiron.


Plug your power adapter back into the side of the Dell Inspiron. Press "Power." Your laptop computer will now turn on.


hope this helps

My dell inspiron mini 10 won't boot.There is just a flash of white light then a flash of amber light when I press the power button. That's it, nothing else.


Remove the main battery and try again, also! the power adapter charger should be checked for correct voltage, if okay! pull one stick of ram and test, and the second piece not forgetting to put the first one back and power up, if all this fails you will need to get it assessed.

Laptop Battery Won T Charge on a laptop dell inspiron 1525


Battery could be dead and won't hold another charge. Batteries only last for so long until you have to replace them. If you laptop is ok with the AC Adapter & Power Cord meaning it boots and allows you to work in windows, then the battery is definitely dead.

Inspiron 5000e adapter where does it go


If you mean the power adapter plug, that connection is on the right side of the laptop near the back of the machine. It's between the PC Card slot and an air intake. For pictures of other connections/ports on the Dell Inspiron 5000e, see http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/pblan/overview.htm and scroll down.

I hope this helps.

Hi, I have a inspiron 6000. 6 years old but works like a charm. Only problem now is the adapter won't charge [not an adapter issue as it works on other dell laptops]. And after the battery has...


Remove the battery and replace it, test. If this does not work, attempt to power on with the AC adapter plugged in and no battery in the system. If this works, you have a bad battery. If this does not work, watch the light on the ac adapter. If the green light goes out when you press the power button, something more is wrong with the system. Further information is desired. When you press the power button, do any lights on the system light up? Do the fans in the computer turn on? Does it make ANY noise? Finally, if available, it is desirable to try a different and known functional AC adapter.

Dell Inspiron 1521 battery not charging


Laptop batteries power a laptop when it is not connected to an electrical outlet. If the laptop battery fails to charge when the laptop is plugged into an electrical outlet, the battery is likely dead and needs to be replaced. Unfortunately there is no way to fix a dead battery. However, while a dead battery is the likely cause, it is not the only cause. The AC adapter may be broken, in which case the battery won't charge, or the battery contacts may be dirty and need cleaning. Prior to replacing the battery, perform simple tasks to ensure a dead battery is the cause of the problems.

1.Power down the laptop. Gently pull the AC adapter from the side of the laptop for removal.

2.Place the laptop in front of you, bottom side up. Locate the battery release mechanism. This can be a button that slides or needs to be pushed to unlock or release the laptop battery from the housing unit. Press or slide the mechanism. Slide or lift the battery from the battery bay for removal.

3.Insert the AC adapter into the side of the laptop. Power on the laptop. If the laptop does not power on, ensure the AC adapter is securely plugged into a working electrical outlet. If the electrical outlet is working and the laptop won't power on, the AC adapter is not properly working and needs to be replaced. Remove the AC adapter.

4.Dip a cotton swab in a small amount of rubbing alcohol. The cotton swab should be damp, not dripping wet. Lightly rub the dampened cotton swab onto the battery contacts and battery bay contacts to remove dust, buildup and grime. Allow the contacts to air dry.

5.Align the battery over the battery bay. Either press or slide into place. A clicking or snapping noise produced from the locking mechanism will confirm the laptop battery is securely locked into place.

6.Install the AC adapter. Allow the AC adapter to fully charge the battery for 8 hours.

7.Remove the AC adapter. Power on the laptop. If the laptop does not power on, the battery needs to be replaced.

Not starting


Just to sum it up, are we talking about the Dell Inspiron 1750 or a Dell Inspiron 6000? Seeing two different things here. With the regards to the ac adapter, How "Warm"are we talking about here. 1 to 10. "1" 100 below 0 or "10" Nuclear Reactor Hot? Any adapters can get warm to the touch without overheating and frying. Was there a blackout or power outages in your area or T-Storm on the day you left. Take off the battery from the laptop. Check the battery lights. Do they flash or do they all light up when you press the button. With the laptop not working, lets hope the battery didnt fry the mainboard. Have you try to fire it up again after the adapter has a chance to cool down. By now, it should be fine, if you haven't use it.

Let me know

Laptop power lights won't come on


Does neither the charge nor the power light come on? Most Dell batteries have a button on them that you can press to determine how much power it has left. If your battery still has power try turning the computer on, and once you get into Windows see if it will detect the power cord or not.

If you can't get the machine to boot you can try your local Radio Shack. They normally have adapters for every laptop, and ask them if you can try it in the store to get your computer to turn on. If that cord works then something is wrong with your AC adaptor.

If neither cord works then either something is dead on your motherboard, or the power jack on the back of the laptop is loose (and not providing any power.)
