My Dell Inspiron 6000
refuses to Boot up. When I press the power or the play button to turn
it on, the Numbers, caps and scroll lights flash as usual. The power
light and the one next to that also turns on (the light in-between the
power indicator and the charger indicator) but then the numbers and
scroll light turns of but the caps lock light remains on. It then
flashes approximately ten time before the power cuts.
I have also noted that I can hear the hard drive start to spin before the entire system shuts
down. I haven't downloaded anything or installed anything new, however,
recently my charger stopped working and I replaced it with a new one.
But I highly doubt that that is the problem.
I would seriously appreciate any and all help with this issue.

Re: Dell Inspiron 600 Laptop, stop working.
This is generally a problem with the battery or a memory chip. Start by removing the battery and starting up on the power supply only. Dell batteries are notorious for causeing a no start. Then try removing the memory and try one chip at a time in both slots. If neither of these work, then I'm afraid you have a failed system board component, ans you will probably want to take it in for a professional diagnostics. Also, you can find a diagnostics light codes list for your machine at Dell's support site.

From the description the hard drive has failed or windows has corrupt files. Unplug power supply from laptop and remove main battery, press and hold power for 2 minutes to remove residual voltage. when finished install battery and power supply now power up.
Unplug power cord from laptop, remove battery
from laptop. Open memory access panel on the bottom of the laptop.
Remove memory module(s) (SO-DIMM). Plug power cord back into laptop.
Turn laptop on (with the memory removed), the caps lock and scroll lock
LEDs light, then the laptop shuts itself off. Unplug power cord from
the laptop. Reinstall the memory modules. Make sure they are seated
correctly. Put the battery back in, plug the laptop back in, and power
on. Laptop should power on and boot up properly. May need to hold the power button down to get it to power on properly. Your responses are intended to improve the level of service provided. Please show your appreciation by rating your experience. Thank You.
Hi, I think from you question your Wifi is TURNED OFF.if it is a Toshiba there is a switch on the front edge.if its a Dell there is a switch by the start button.Check to see that YOUR Wifi is turned on and active. Take care
try to turn off the laptop, then remove the cables and battery on the laptop. Then press and hold the power button for 5 seconds. Reinsert the cables and battery on the pc. Turn on the pc and play games. Check if your pc could sustain. If not, try to upgrade your memory on the laptop...
You might need to go into the computer's BIOS and see if it's set to boot from a bootable CD or USB device. If it's set to only boot from the hard drive, it won't even look at other drives. Different computers use different ways to access the BIOS: you might try pressing the F12 key when the boot logo appears. Check your owner's documentation - it should tell you the procedure for your computer.
Have you tried this: 1. After removing the battery 2. Press and hold the power button for at least 10 sec. 3. Put back the battery 4. Turn it on
if this doesnt work, there could be a problem with your operating system. Try accessing safe mode if you can login .TAP F8 continously on the dell logo screen, and it will open advance boot options. (Just select safe mode) If safe mode boots properly try running system restore to restore it back to the previous date where your computer is still booting to windows. Hope this helps
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.
First, can it boot into BIOS setup? This is DEL, Esc, F1, F2, or
whatever key your user manual instructs; press the requisite key
immediately after pressing the power switch.
Second, can it boot from an emergency recovery disk from the floppy, or a boot CD from the CD drive?
