If the battery is shot, remove it and see if the system will power up on AC only.

If not change, check the output of the AC adapter with a Multimeter set on DC voltage. It should be 15 to 20 Volts DC current at the connection end for the computer. If low or no voltage, replace the AC adapter.

Is there a quick fix to replacing the processor fan on a Dell Inspron 1000


Not a quick fix, but you can buy a cooling base unit for it which plugs into one of your usb ports which supplies power for the built in fan.

My dell inspiron laptop 1000 screen turns dark every few seconds. if I close the computer half way and open it,it stay bright for a few seconds and turns dark again


This is your back light on your lcd display, To prove that have a flash light handy when it goes dark point the flash light at the screen and you should see the screen and that would mean right there you got a back light going out or the inverter that powers it is going bad. Etherway if this is not your area of work you need to tech it to a computer tech local to have it repaired.

Thanks for being considerate with your ratings and feedback today.

Dell Inspiron 1000 won't turn on. It is always


Well if it is always plugged to the wall then the laptop's power jack is the common problem there. You can have a Computer Technician check it and diagnose it for you. Be careful how much you pay, if that is the problem (i'm pretty sure it has to be) you can shop for the part online (ebay is a good place to find them for around ten bucks) and hand it to the computer guy. Otherwise you may be charged a fortune to get it fixed. Next time, use a power surge between the power adapter and the wall's power outlet.
Here's is a brief explanation of what happens with the power jack. Inside of it there are two or three pieces of metal that look like thick wires and what they do is transfer the current to the laptop. Eventually they wear out and break (common cause is having your laptop plugged to the wall continously exposing it to all sorts of power surges). Hope it helps, good luck.

How do i get my sound ro work on my dell inspiron 1000


I guess there is a driver issue, either there is not a proper driver or isn't installed properly.

You didn't mentioned the Operating System, So I'm assuming it is XP, and here the Audio Driver for XP Inspiron 1000.


If you are using some other OS, do tell me, I'll give you the proper driver than.

I hope this will help you out,

Regards, WAQAR.

Installed a rangeplus adapter on dell 1000 inspiron xp sp3 home


See if you can go into safe mode by hitting the F8 key right after the dell splash screen and right before the XP splash screen comes up. If you can get into safe mode try to uninstall the rangeplus adapter and try reinstalling again after rebooting the system normally.
