Question about Dell Inspiron 6000 Notebook

1 Answer

Thanks for reply..more info.

Mine is a Dell inspiron 1720. (this site hasn't got my product listed) The adapter was only vaguely warm on one side, not hot..and i also thought a little warm was normal.
I'm at work so can't do battery test now..will do it tonight though. I just purchased a replacement AC adapter online ..do you think my laptop will have been fried? Maybe there's no way to tell right now. Thakns again... anymore info would be much appreciated.

Actually, if the battery is fully charge you can always try to turn it on. If it comes on, wait until windows comes up.You can see the battery icon in the bottom right system tray. Watch it for awhile. If the battery doesn't deplete very quickly. Then you will be good. If the battery does deplete very rapidly, then wait for the adapter. Battery is toast. Should also test the hard drive out as well..

Let me know

Can I install an hdmi hook up to my computer


Hi Art,

Dell Inspiron 1720 doesn't have an HDMI port. However, you may try using any USB to HDMI connectors available in the market which might help.

Thanks and Regards.

How do I replace win 8.1 with win 7 enterprise


If you have the Win7 software discs and the product key you should be OK. I'd backup all of your data, then using the Win7 disc, full format the drive and install Win7. Be sure your BIOS is set to boot from the CD/DVD ROM.

Inspiron 1720 no power


Remove main battery and try again, next! sub out the ram memory one at a time and test, have the power supply adapter checked for voltage output, if okay! the DC jack in the laptop is a common source of trouble, "from intermittent operation to no power" at this point the laptop must be dismantled to investigate further.

Hi,

Try running these scans in Safe Mode.

Keep pressing F8 on startup, and choose 'Safe Mode' from the list that appears.

If you still find it locking up during scans, you may have a hardware problem that needs fixing.

Inspiron 1720 is shorting ac adapter? laptop has


It can be the AC power jack on your laptop. Believe me I have an inspiron myself and this problem is a real pain. However you can easily fix it by un-soldering the old jack, re-soldering the new one in. You can find a replacement on e-bay. If you are not good at soldering,I suggest you take professional assistance. Its a very inexpensive repair.
