you have a GPU that is cold jointed (bad soldering from cycling heat and cold stress) you must reflow the graphic card

first try connecting an external monitor, if it works it's the LCD panel need's to be replaced

if you have the same problem with the external monitor you have a GPU that needs REFLOWING find a company that can REFLOW the graphic card (re heat the board to re solder the GPU)

Have fun!

Isolate where the problem is: it could be the LCD display or the graphics circuit on the main board. Connect the VGA output of the laptop to an external monitor - one that you know is good. From the function keys, activate the VGA output of the laptop - it's suppose to switch between the LCD display or to the external monitor. Switch it to the external monitor. If the external monitor works, then you have a problem with the LCD display of the laptop.

I haven't before this heard of such a thing.

I am wondering how you have determined this figure and what exactly you mean - do you mean the 1TB drive is now considerably less than 1TB? Perhaps you mean the available space on the drive is reducing by 10Gb per day?

If the latter it suggests your computer is downloading lots of stuff without your knowledge and if the former it suggests the hard drive is failing.

I suggest you connect your hard drive to a different computer via a usb adaptor and run the check disc utility and examine the contents to discover whether there is content on it you didn't put there.

why not ask at dell.com (sure the endless laughter and taunts) ;-)
is this a laptop, and is useless now. totally.
but the battery is bad, remove the big battery it is shorted now.
then the coin cell battery went dead 2 decades go.
and now the HDD is bad.
why in the world waste or worse money on this junk
far far better fish in the sea, far newer, and cheap. used.
this lappy has CCFL back lamps that went bad long ago.
no fix for that under $100.

this PC has no value at all, why mess with this pig.

ok I give up.
no problem stated at all like LCD cracked?

we read the manual first, but dell its missing
they are afraid you will get hurt i guess.
the manual was leaked to here.
dell.com has user manual but not service, there.
but here it is. see page 35 , begin take down, you question is wrong, the question is what comes off first. before bezel.

It alway zs helps to know the model number. Witht that information, you should be able to find the specifications at the Dell support site. It would simply tell you in a specs sheet. I guess you could download HWinfo, a handy freeware program and check informaiton about components there. There is of course the option to download the user manual.

case size what? (this tell what mobo is inside) yeah.
OS is what window 10?
what is in your hand USB? device, cant guess that.
do all ports fail?
is USB 2 and 3 ports all turned on IN BIOS F2 pages.

does keyboard USB fail on any USB ports
does it fail in BIOS windows only or that and BIOS screens too. if fails in BIOS too, that means the ports some are tuned off in BIOS.

First thing to do is make sure all the RAM and other connections are good and try again. IF the issue persists, take things out, remove everything but the monitor and see if you can see the POST screen, then power it off and put in the RAM and try again, then do the hard disk etc, You may be able to narrow it down that way.

replace the RTC coin cell batter if over 5- 7 years. old. It is that old, so...
test the HDD fully .
using a smart test app.
data is a whole other matter
plug the hdd into a HDD docking bay (buy one)
it uses USB port.
the pull the data off using any other windows based computer that works.

works if lucky bad HDD have bad sectors now and now data is corrupted, the amount of uncorrupted data is not known by anyone on earth , only you, know that doing the work stated. looking and trying to copy data. can work and millions have every day. www.

it's like saying my house was flooded, in a hurricane.
what things in my home my be still good.?
answer only you can look and see.

that is why others asked can not answer any question like that. dell or any other person sitting in a text box 12,000 miles away.
the cure is new hDD, new OS loaded.

42million hits. today.


good luck finding data. if the motor is dead there will be no data.

What color(s) is (are) the blinking light? Is the blink a simple on/off or is there a pattern to the blinks (long/short)? Do any other lights come on and blink? (These could be on the keyboard or the battery health indicator LED.)

If the light that is blinking amber or orange indicates that the system has failed the Power On Self-Test (POST). If the blinking light is white, the system is in sleep mode. Try disconnecting the power adapter. Take out the battery and remove all external peripherals. Press and hold the power button for 20-30 seconds to discharge the system's capacitors. Try to restart the machine with only the battery and AC adapter. Did the behavior change?

You can remove memory and the hard drive to check if those are causing a POST failure. Reinstall one memory stick at a time if you have a pair or more. If you can get to the Dell splash screen, try pressing F12 to launch the diagnostics. (You may have to press the key repeatedly starting from a cold boot.)

If the blinking light is alternating orange and white, then you could have a problem with the motherboard, battery or AC charging system. Since you believe that the battery and adapter are OK, then the problem would likely be the motherboard has been damaged. The damage could be at the connection for the charger or somewhere else.

I hope this helps.
