Dell :: Blinking Lights On The M1730

Nov 2, 2008

I suffer from migraine that is triggered by changes in luminosity and blinking lights.

I am now reading the review by justGoIt of the M1730 on the Dell website: it talks about "bling bling lights". (This link points to the product, then you have to click on reviews.)

Does anybody know what lights are they?

can they be turned off?

are they bright?

where are they positioned?

or can they just be covered with a sticker?

Dell Studio 1749 :: 3 Blinking Lights But Will Not Power On

Aug 12, 2014

My daughter's 1749 laptop shut itself off and now when you plugin the power adapter, the light over the plug on the laptop blinks three times.  It will not power on at all.

I have replaced the power jack in the laptop as well as the cpu and tried different known-good ram but nothing makes any difference. What does the light over the power jack blinking three times indicate?

Dell :: E1505 Won't Boot, No Post, 3 Indicator Lights + Power Blinking...

Mar 10, 2010

The laptop wouldn't boot. I took the keyboard out to see if I could swab-dry any water, but couldn't really find any in there.

I lightly sprayed around with compressed air and left the laptop open with the keyboard out to try and let it dry out for a few hours, but no dice...still wouldn't boot.

I thought maybe via cell phone logic, it might work again after 24 hours or so. It's been almost three days now and it still won't boot, so I'm pretty sure I fried something. Here's the error code it's giving me .....

Dell :: Inspiron 8200 Unable To Bootthree Blinking Lights On Power On

Aug 9, 2007

I tried turning it on today and at first it wouldn't turn on at all. I switched power outlets and when I pressed the power button, it turned on but the three green lights (power, HDD and battery) started blinking for a few seconds before the system shuts off.

I can't really find if this is some kind of error code or whatnot. I've tried reseating everything except the CPU... I've done the memory, DVD-ROM, HDD, Keyboard, Graphics card... I just don't know what it could be and I have no idea who I could even take the machine to.

Then has soon has it boots into windows they will go back to my setting of sapphire blue.

Dell :: XPS M1730 Back Lights??

May 5, 2009

i recently reinstalled windows on my Dell XPS M1730 but i have some problems. For some reason the lights on the lid of the case (the ones on top lol) dont come on anymore.

To get them on i have to open dell quickset and turn them off and then on again, then they will stay on, but after shutting down and booting back up they are still off. Anyone know what the problem could be?

Also another issue im having is that when i turn on the laptop my left speaker light is orange. I changed it in quickset to be blue but still during booting its orange and then once the laptop is fully booted it turns to blue. Anyone have any idea how to fix this?

Dell :: Lights On The M1710 Cover

Dec 5, 2007

anyone at all been able to light up the cover lights (just one of the colors even) for those who have done the 9400/E1705 to M1710 mods? I would really like to know how this can be done if there are some theories out there. Please refrain from saying how much you hate the lights or asking why I would care to do this :

Some methods I thought about trying:
USB port: 5V ok, will that work with the cover LEDs?
Fan port: I have heard this one might not work but can anyone confirm?

(I am talking about cutting off the connector that would originally go into the M1710 mobo and trying various things with the wires that happen to be color coded, 2 for each color of LED apparently.)

Dell :: Disable XPS Lights On Screen Hinge?

Dec 13, 2009

I know it's kinda dumb but it's annoyingly bright when I've got the computer on at night and it's busy converting video or doing other work. It's also less power used.

It can't be done through software but has anyone physically unplugged them? I've not opened up the case yet so I don't know how practical that would be, thought I'd ask around first.

Dell :: SXPS16 Brighter Keyboard Lights?

Mar 9, 2010

I feel like the keyboard on my SXPS13 was MUCH brighter than the keyboard on my SXPS16.

I also had an icon pop up on the RHS of the screen that told me the keyboard light level (it would pop up when changing intensity 'off', '1', and '2').

I don't have an icon pop up on the 16, and the keyboard looks much dimmer overall.

Dell Inspiron N5010 :: Won't Turn On - No Beeps / Lights

Feb 7, 2013

I recently changed the screens on my laptop without difficulty. The next day i went to classes and brought my laptop since it was now fixed. When i went to turn it on it was very dark and i couldn't adjust the brightness. I couldn't get pass the log on screen so i held down the power button but it would not turn off so i took out the battery. I put the battery back in and left the laptop alone till i got home. I thought that the problem with the screen was a wire came loose or something of that nature so i took apart the screen and made sure everything was plugged in. I put it back together and put the battery back in and went to turn it on to see if the screen problem was resolved and it wouldn't boot or anything. I don't get any beeps, fans, or lights that turn on.

Dell XPS L421X :: Will Not Power Up - No Back Lights On Keyboard

Mar 30, 2013

This is the second time I have had this issue. I have already had the motherboard and power supply/cable replaced and it worked for awhile. Here is the issue.

- Occasionally after powering down, the next time I try to power up, the laptop does nothing but show the power light on. No Dell screen, no back lights on the keyboard, nothing else. I press and hold the power button down and after 5 seconds it shuts the light off.  I would then try it again with the same result. I let the battery completely drain; plug the power cord back in and after about 5 minutes of charging, try it again. This seemed to work until one day it did not. Then I had the motherboard and power supply replaced and all seemed well.  Now, 6-8 weeks later I have the same problem again.  A new L421X purchased in December 2012 with 512GB SSD running Windows 8 64 bit. I use this for business and am about to throw it out the window.  

Currently, I have tried the power up, drain power trick with no results. It is dead with all my business info on the drive.  I am about to dump Dell and switch to HP.  

Anything I can do short of a whole new machine?

Dell :: Constantly Blinking HDD LED On E5500

Apr 10, 2009

I'm worrying because of the following issue on my new E5500:

The HDD LED is constantly blinking with one second frequency. I'm using WIN XP, this blinking can not be seen in BIOS, but I can see it with a Live XP, and it's also blinking when XP install starts,

but there are not any processes.Because of the mentioned reasons, this could not be because of indexing, or pagefile (additionally I have tried to turn them off, and blinking remained)

I've reported this issue to Dell, and the HDD was replaced, but I still can experience the blinking.

Dell XPS 14Z :: Red Blinking Charger Light - Win 7

Jan 8, 2015

About three weeks ago, I came in to the machine to begin my day.  The machine had been plugged and charging through the night, status=Hibernated.  This is my common practice.  I immediately noted the Charger light on the hinge was blinking alternately white then three or four quick red blinks rather than the usual steady white when the charger is plugged in.  

I interpreted it as some sort of alarm; but after an exhaustive look, running diagnostics, searching DELL website and viewing the User manuals, I cannot find an answer. 

· I checked the Windows 7 battery app and the DELL Battery Meter and “Battery Health” showed the battery to be performing normally.    
· I went to DELL support and ran the battery diagnostics which were OK.   
· The problem is seen always several hours of charging with no activity; and it is intermittent.  It has happened several times since the first time.  It happened again this morning.
· I made the assumption that the red light was a warning and the battery was failing or in trouble – no.
· Then I thought it might be due to overcharging.  If so, shouldn’t the problem be every time I leave it on overnight? 
· Note my solution: If I unplug the machine and go on battery power when the red light is blinking and do work on the machine, when the battery goes down 10% or so, the red blinking light stops. 
· My machine is otherwise working well.

I have had Sony Vaio VGN-N19VP/B for over a year now and this morning I went to open the lid and turn the laptop on and there were no lights or any response.

Under the motherboard where powewr cable from AC jack is connected I have 3.98V.

On the battery output from moterboard on the 3 pin is 2.58V

Apple :: Yellow Lights When Looking Through The Vents

Feb 22, 2009

i've been playing far cry 2 for 4 hours. i shut down the game, my temp is 79-80 degrees celcius which is perfectly normal when gaming on the macbook pro. i don't know why i wanted to look through the vents. i turn my laptop and look through. i saw this yellow light. its approximately under the R and F keys on the keyboard. i turn my laptop and look closely on the keyboard and it's illuminated white. no sign of the yellow light. Thus, to resume, i saw it only when looking through the vents. does anybody know what is this light? what is causing it to light up? i smelled closely but no burning smell. in fact, i cant smell any weird odour. is it harmful for my macbook pro?

Dell Inspiron 14 1440 :: Screen Is Black There Are No Blue Lights That Are On

Nov 25, 2014

My Dell Inspiron 14 1440 froze and i decided to manually turn it on and back on. I pushed, and held the power button until it turned off. Once it turned off i decided to take the battery out (for no apparent reason). So i took it out and put it back it (i didn't really touch anything). Once i put it back in i tried turning it on by pressing the power button, but it wouldn't turn on. The screen is black, there are no blue lights that are on. (These lights are on when you turn the laptop on).I tried the taking out the battery and hold power button for 30-60secs trick, but no luck. I also have taken out my laptop's ram and re-inserted it (same with my hard drive). Oh and my battery is fully charged. I tried searching the net for solutions but no one really has the same problem as me. Most of the other people with problems said they could hear the fan, but with mine there is noting. No sound. No lights. No working laptop just one really expensive door stop.

HP/Compaq :: HP Ze4904us Wont Boot, But Lights Are On

Apr 6, 2009

It's an HP ze 4904US running windows XP. Worked fine, then went to start one day and screen wouldn't come on. Having had this problem with my ze1000 series, I thought it could be screen bulb or inverter. But it isn't.

When I turn it on, I see the blue light all the way to the left on as well as the orange light by the battery symbol to the right.
I don't hear beeps.
I do hear the cd rom spin if a cd is loaded.
I do hear the fan for just a second occasionally. Not every time.
The screen is black and no faint xp logo or anything.
I feel like maybe it's not booting all the way.
If I press caps lock or num lock, the accent light doesnt come one. (maybe bad keyboard)

Here's what I've tested so far based on searches on this forum:

used reset button
removed battery and ac adapter and held power button 1 min.
One by one removed hardware to narrow problem
Re-seated everything and made sure connections were good
tried 2 other known working ac adapters.
hooked up to my PC monitor and still nothing. Monitor doesn't noticed anything attached. (why I believe it's not screen and just isnt booting.)

If it ends up being the motherboard, I do have a motherboard that works in my ze1000 laptop, but I don't know if it is compatible.

Dell Inspiron 14Z :: Battery Not Charging - Lights Flashing Orange 3x Then White

My laptop is just over a year old, and out of the warranty. I'm particularly upset about this.

My battery, which was working just fine yesterday is now giving me a "plugged in," not charging message. The lights on the front of the computer (Dell Inspiron 14z, 2012 model) is flashing orange 3x then white.

My mom has the same laptop as me and hers is working fine. Her adapter (which works for her) would not charge my battery. Her battery worked in my laptop but would not charge. Using her battery, I updated the BIOS since I couldn't previously as it was less than 10%.

Dell :: Studio 15Volume Buttons Blinking For No Reason

All day, the mute and volume up buttons have been blinking, and the volume down button has just stayed lit. There does not appear to be any reason for them to be doing this. Also, it's not affecting the buttons' performance. Does anybody have a theory as to why it's doing this? And is there any way to make it stop?
