Question about Dell Inspiron E1505 Notebook
Start by checking the power supply with an ohm meter for the proper output. Anything higher or low than one volt means the supply is faulty and will need replaced. This could also be a battery issue, if a fail safe in the battery has engaged. Try removing the battery and see if it works properly on the supply only, if so, then the battery will need replaced. Also, remove the memory, and try each chip one at a time in each slot. A faulty memory chip pr slot can have this effect. If these three check good, then I'm afraid the problem is with the power management system on the motherboard, and unfortunately the motherboard will have to be replaced. Since the light is flashing, this indicates a code. You can find a light and sound codes list for your machine at Dell's support site. This may help in identifying the exact problem area.
