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.

Hi, I have a inspiron 6000. 6 years old but works like a charm. Only problem now is the adapter won't charge [not an adapter issue as it works on other dell laptops]. And after the battery has...


Remove the battery and replace it, test. If this does not work, attempt to power on with the AC adapter plugged in and no battery in the system. If this works, you have a bad battery. If this does not work, watch the light on the ac adapter. If the green light goes out when you press the power button, something more is wrong with the system. Further information is desired. When you press the power button, do any lights on the system light up? Do the fans in the computer turn on? Does it make ANY noise? Finally, if available, it is desirable to try a different and known functional AC adapter.

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!

Not starting


Just to sum it up, are we talking about the Dell Inspiron 1750 or a Dell Inspiron 6000? Seeing two different things here. With the regards to the ac adapter, How "Warm"are we talking about here. 1 to 10. "1" 100 below 0 or "10" Nuclear Reactor Hot? Any adapters can get warm to the touch without overheating and frying. Was there a blackout or power outages in your area or T-Storm on the day you left. Take off the battery from the laptop. Check the battery lights. Do they flash or do they all light up when you press the button. With the laptop not working, lets hope the battery didnt fry the mainboard. Have you try to fire it up again after the adapter has a chance to cool down. By now, it should be fine, if you haven't use it.

Let me know

Power issue


Is the new power supply a Dell. Some aftermarket power supplies, especially Targus, will not charge the battery in a Dell. If it is a Dell supply, then it's one of two things. 1- the battery is shot and needs replacing. 2- the power management chip on the motherboard is shot and the motherboard needs replacing. If the battery light is flashing orange then the battery is shot. If the battery light is green, then go into the power settings and see if the machine shows that it is charging. If it doesn't show that it's charging then it's the pm chip.

check if the ac adapter or charger has a green light on it. if not, replace the charger. for dell chargers, it should have a green light to indicate that the charger is getting power from the wall outlet. if the ac adapter is good, then you might need to replace the mother board as the ac port is integrated.

hope this resolves your problem.
