DELL INSPIRON M5030 frusturating issue (tried almost everything)


A) How did the Power Button Module get broken?

B) Error indicates losing data and unable to leave Hibernation Mode.

It's a long shot, but let's see if you can reset BIOS Settings back to default, without being able to see the BIOS Setup screen.....

Remove the AC adapter (Charger)
Remove the Battery.

Remove the RTC Battery. (Real Time Clock. Same as CMOS Battery, but with a new name)
Oh, excuse me.....Dell = Coin-Cell Battery

Power Button Module flat flex cable installed in motherboard connector, press the Power On button, hold it down for a count of 10 seconds. Let go.
Do this same procedure two more times.

Reinstall Coin-Cell Battery
Reassemble laptop.
Reinstall Battery, THEN AC adapter, and THEN plug AC adapter into power.

Let's see if we can revert the BIOS Setup settings, back to the factory default settings.

C) Dell refuses to help you since your warranty expired.
Not sticking up for Dell, but Really?

You're telling me they're not going to take your laptop, and fix it for a specific amount of money?

"No thank you Mr.Robertson, we're a laptop manufacturer, and money is of no consequence!"
We get by just knowing people out there like our laptops.
That, food stamps and the occasional barbecue Gates puts on at his place, gets us by."

Right.

Did you know I'm Brad Pitt? Angelina is in one of her moods again, so I come on here.

(Just trying to be funny)

D) LED lights 2 & 3 stay on

LED 2 is the Harddrive Activity LED.
Should stay solid as the harddrive isn't active

LED 3 is the Battery Status LED.
Solid amber indicates ON, or Standby.

Did you follow Anti-Static Procedures, during the Power Button Module replacement?

Plus, I'm willing to bet the Power Button Module, didn't come from Dell. Another reason they would not want to work on the laptop.
They can't guarantee the replacement part is good.
(They can, but there are too many liability issues)

Power Button Module being broken, is what I'm concentrating on at the moment.

This was the start of the problem. From it all other problems have issued.

The Power On switch is a Momentary Contact Switch.
The carbon contact Power On switch on that Power Button Module.

http://www.parts-people.com/index.php?action=item&id=9908

Was it broken so it stayed pressed to the on position?

Also need to know the full extent of damage caused by the Power Button Module being broken.
In my estimate it took a pretty hard hit in that area, to break that board.

Lastly for now; The Power Button Module has a FFC.
Flat Flex Cable.
Is it replaced back in the SAME position? Not flipped over?
It will go in either way. Right side up, or flipped over.

Please post back in a Comment.

How do I check to see if the hard drives on a dell latitude c830 are seated properly.


I had someone bring me a laptop that had been dropped, and it would not boot, it said operational system could not be found. At that point I decided to remove the hard drive and reseated it back into place and press power, the computer booted up without a problem. The point I'am making is that the hard drive can get knocked out of position making things look worse than they really are, if you are having similar problems remove it and re-seat it back into position it will work or it won't.

I have the Bushnell Weather FXi and I cannot get the USB transceiver to power up. I plug it into the USB put the antenna up and no LED light will power. MY Laptop is new, I have a Dell Inspirion with...


At this point, you've probably realized that Bushnell broke your unit. Toward the middle or end of March 2014, Bushnell and Accuweather terminated their data sharing contract for the Weather FXi, Hunt FXi and Golf FXi internet-based weather stations. Since the forecast information is freely available on Accuweather's website, all Bushnell would have to do is fix/update the software to grab the data a different way. These were awesome weather stations when they worked and now Bushnell has decided to brick them by refusing to update the software. They have our money and now we have electronic waste paperweights to pollute the landfills. What a great business decision for them! I for one have decided to never buy any Bushnell products again and I hope everyone else who Bushnell screwed over by this decision to brick perfectly good weather stations also decides to boycott Bushnell products.

It turns on for a few seconds then shuts off


Hi,
Since you have already replaced the ac adapter. The problem is still there. the most likely cause of the failure is bad motherboard. Remove the battery from the laptop and disconnect the ac adapter . Press the power button for 10 seconds. Reconnect the ac adapter and try powering on the system. If the same doesnot work

Power dstroy my laptop


Power surge? I recommend you scrap the laptop. You could replace the power supply to find the motherboard damaged or its life significantly reduced, putting the laptop beyond economical repair. Buy a surge protector with the replacement laptop.

Boot problem on inspiron 1150


Try connecting it to an external monitor.
When you do, as soon as you press the power button to turn on the laptop, close the laptop lid - as this forces the laptop to display on an external monitor.
If this works, then it means the laptop screen is bad.
If it doesn't, the most likely cause would be that the laptop video card went bad.
For a while, some older Dell laptops with high-end nVidia graphics cards tended to die suddenly.
