Question about Dell Inspiron 5160 Notebook
I pulled the battery out and tried to turn it on but since it had no power nothing happened other than the power light and the battery light flashed very faintly. I plugged the power cord in and tried to turn it on but nothing happened there either. while the power cord was plugged in without the battery the power light and the battery light blinked every couple of seconds. when I put the battery back in with the power cord plugged in, the battery light did not turn on...normally it would be green or yellow (when charging).
This could be a bad memory chip or slot problem. remove the memory and try one chip at a time in each slot. If this doesn't work then the problem will most likely be in the power management system on the motherboard. This will require professional diagnosing in order to track down the exact problem component.
