It could be the connector that is soldered into the mainboard is loose causing the laptop not to power up. Try gently jiggling the cord and watch to see if that helps. If so then you will need to get the connected replaced at a local repair facility.

Hi Robert Harper,
It looks like an issue with Video (BIOS, Memory Shadowing)
Could you provide me with the Service Tag of the system?
You can try connecting external Monitor if available to check if that works? (After connecting external monitor you need to press fn+f8 to toggle the display)

Dell Inspiron 1721 will not power on,light on power supply flashes rapidly.


First, try and take out the battery and start the computer with just the power adapter. If the power adapter is still blinking, replace the power adapter. If the computer turns on with just the power adapter, replace the battery.

If the battery status light rapidly flashes amber, the battery may be defective. Purchase a replacement battery from Dell.

If the power supply status light flashes, the power supply may be defective. Purchase a replacement power supply.

Run the Dell Diagnostics Utility by pressing Fn+Power button at the same time.

If the Diagnostics doesn't come up, your motherboard needs replacement.

I have a Dell Inspiron e1505 laptop that just won't come on.


hi, your laptop led`s are also there for diagnostic purposes, if the caps lock and scroll lock (the one on right of caps) are flashing before going off, it means your system is not detecting the RAM so either your ram has failed or the motherboard is faulty
