Re: Dell D500 not starting
It's unfotunate that you don't have the info from the blue screen, this would help tremendously. The blinking light is actually a code, a certain light will blink a certain number of times for a specific code. Go to Dell's support site and find the light codes for your machine, this will help in narrowing down the problem area. I believe you're going to need the tools to remove the covers, so you might think to pick them up. A majority of the time this type of problem is either with the memory or the hard drive. Start with the codes list, and gofrom there. If you need any help, just ask.

Due to the shock, your laptop may have broken and have displaced parts and the fan/ heat sink etc might not be working. Over heating can cause further damage. Hence, it is strongly recommended that you immediately seek professional assistance to avoid any permanent damage to the system
GoodLuck! Dont forget to appreciate the solution if I could have been of any help! CreativeTECH
first of all check if you have sound in headphones if not go to start->accessories->system tools->system recovery and here chose day that you know that your sound was working. If it will not fix it try to reinstall sound drivers, and last hope is in reinstalling operating system. If you have sound in speakers its fault of your laptop speakers and you need to change them.
First uninstall the touchpad driver in add/remove programs, reboot the system and see if the touchpad works better (Some functions may be lost like scrolling, but this is just a test)
Next go to support.dell.com, download the latest system BIOS and touchpad driver, install them and reboot, see if issue is resolved.
you dont need to replace the entire laptop. what you need is the hinge assembly and an LCD kit. you can purchase that through dell's spare parts dept at 800-3573355. its probably gonna cost you $300. or just call tech support and have the computer sent in out of warranties repair. here's a tip. if the issue happened while the warranty was still active then dell is liable to cover that. just tell them that you just didnt have time to call.
i am having a problem just like this
here is a link to the service manual from ibm
copy and paste in your browser.
use egg carton or something that you can hold and label your screws or you can use a color marker to
mark the screws. different color for different screws also have good lighting
i have a dell inspiron 1000 that the lcd goes black. i am not getting any beep codes and i cant find a service manual for it.
good luck let me know if and how you fix your laptop firstname.lastname@example.org
