I had this problem, and I took out the RAM memory cards and put them back in again, and then the computer booted up fine.

I have an inspiron 6000 the ac adapter when plug in had a intermitent connection replaced the adapter socket on the Mother board and when I reconnected through the adapter the machine would power up for 3-5 sec. the cap lock symbol flashed on and off and then it powered itself down. I took out the two memory cards switched positions and sure enough it now works like a champ.

The blinking light is a diagnostics code. You can find a list of diagnostics light and sound codes for your machine at Dell's support site. This is generally a battery, memory, hard drive, or operating system error problem. The codes list will help you narrow it down.

Dell Inspiron 6000 powers up, caps lock flashes 9 times, then laptop shut down. Why???


Unplug power cord from laptop, remove battery from laptop. Open memory access panel on the bottom of the laptop. Remove memory module(s) (SO-DIMM). Plug power cord back into laptop. Turn laptop on (with the memory removed), the caps lock and scroll lock LEDs light, then the laptop shuts itself off. Unplug power cord from the laptop. Reinstall the memory modules. Make sure they are seated correctly. Put the battery back in, plug the laptop back in, and power on. Laptop should power on and boot up properly.
May need to hold the power button down to get it to power on properly.

Inspiron 6000 starts to boot but then shuts down after only 10 seconds. New Battery, power supply measures ok. Caps lite is on.


Try reseating the RAM memory modules, see if any change.
If no change, remove, battery, Drives, Wireless card and RAM, see if the system will run longer or give an error code. If something changes, add 1 RAM module and try again. If the system runs, then add items back one at a time until you determine the faulty item.
If the system issue doesn't change, odds are a motherboard problem. Motherboard are about $100 on Ebay

Dell e1505 no start, flashing lights.


The symptoms you've described point to a failure in the system board. You can try to remove the ram memory and reinsert them to see if this solves your error. If the error persists then most likely the failure is the motherboard itself.

Dell Inspiron E1505 Will Not Turn on


Hi there.
Try cleaning the system memory and slots with a soft dry clean painbrush and re-seating it.
Also make sure the air vents and fan area is free of dust.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!
