Question about Dell Inspiron 6000 Notebook

1 Answer

Dell Inspiron 6000 laptop will not power up.

Even though it's plugged into the ac adapter (green light on), it will not power up. I was using it earlier in the evening. Was ready to shut down, & it just went black. Can't get it to power up.

My Acer Aspire 5630 laptop will not charge all the time, even though the charger is plugged into it with the green light indicating its working. Its charges every so often, then stop, and my computer shuts...


Hello.
The most common reasons for power issues are the battery, power jack and power adapter/cord.

Power off and remove the battery. If the laptop powers on with just the adapter connected, your battery is faulty.

If you move/wiggle the power adapter at the point where it connects to the laptop, and the power goes off and on, the power jack is the problem. The power jack is inside the laptop and either needs soldering or replacement. If a power jack problem, it should be addressed by someone knowledgeable.
If no change, the power adapter is probably faulty and needs replacement.

Another suggestion is to remove the heatsink and apply new thermal paste or the motherboard may need replacing. Leave it to an expert if you are not familiar.

Hope this helps.

Hello. Today in the morning my laptop (Asus A8Jseries) was working alright. Then after 6 hours when i tried to turn it on, it didn't. I mean, it starts to work and Asus symbol comes alone, but then it just...


If it happens only when you move the adapter plug inside the power jack, it's likely that you have a problem with the power jack inside the laptop. The power jack has to be resoldered or replaced.
If it happens even without touching the adapter plug, the problem could be related to the faulty power adapter.
You can test the power adapter with a voltmeter and find out if the ouputed voltage is correct. If the voltage is not correct, replace the adapter.

But don't trust that even if the output votage matches specifications. It's possible that the power adapter doesnt' work correctly under load. Test your laptop with another known good adapter. If the laptop works fine with another adapter, your power adapter is defective and has to be replaced.

It will not turn on even though it's plugged in


Well, if your computer does not even turn on, or run through the POST test, then you may have a power fault somewhere inside you computer. There really isn't a reset for it. If its the V6500 (laptop), then try removing the battery, if the computer allows, and starting the computer with AC. If it works, then you know its your battery. If not, then you have bigger problems (as stated earlier). Here is a site with some steps to follow to help determine your specific problem, if it is a battery/AC adapter issue.

You should try another ac adapter.If that does'nt work the power jack where it plugs in may be bad or the power board under the power button is bad.You should try another ac adapter first though.

Inspiron Battery Light Flashing Orange


Battery.

Dell has a chip internal to the battery programed to shut down after a certain number of charge cycles. This means every time you plug the laptop in with the battery installed. When it reaches this determined number the battery effectively shuts down, even though technically it's still good. There have been loads of complaints on the net toward Dell over this issue. I have myself experience this. Battery good one day, powered down, went home, powered up... only to receive the deadly flashing light. Only cure is to replace battery. Several hacks trying to get around this but they're all horrible. Bad Dell - bad, bad Dell!

Shut off and won't come back. It's like it is dead.


follow this procedure:
1. unplug the ac adapter and keep it unplugged.
2. Remove the battery and keep the battery unplugged.
3. Hold the power button down for 15-20 seconds(Nothing will appear on the display and none of the lights will light up)
4. Release the power button and plug in the ac adapter ONLY. (A power indicator light should be lit on the ac adapter when it is plugged in)
5. Normally power on the notebook.
6. If the unit does not power on, remove the ac adapter and insert the battery into the system.
7. Plug the ac adapter back into the system, the battery charging indicator light will light up. If the battery indicator light does not light up, the ac adapter may not be providing proper power to the unit, and may need to be replaced.

Asus ac adapter will not wrk green light on adapter


First check the wall socket make sure you are getting power, plug a lamp into it for instance. If there is no green light on the adapter then it is bad and you will need to order a new one from your computer manufactor.
