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?
Few days ago My laptop start to not turning on. I have replaced ram but it doesn't work.
I have blinking light. When I am turning laptop on, POWER LED turn on and turn off after 4-5 sec, after this BATTERY LED turning on and off after 1 sec. When I am turning on laptop holding FN key, hapends the same but in meantime NUM LOCK, CAPS LOCK and SCR LOCK is turning on and off after 5 sec.
I can't find error codes for this laptop anywhere.
My Dell N5110 is about 14 months old - Windows 7, 650GB HD, 8GB RAM (originally 6GB before I upgraded the memory chip). Up until about 2/2/13, I was able to turn it on, put it in hibernation, etc., but suddenly, I could not turn it on (I had it plugged in overnight, perhaps it was in Sleep mode). I saw no lights, no beeps, no black screen as described by others - just empty screen, no power, nothing.
I waited over a week before I decided to bring it in to get service (my schedule didn't permit me to do so earlier). In the meantime, I kept trying everyday to get it work - I removed the battery, I reseated the memory chips, I clicked the power button on for multiple times, held it down for 30+ seconds, clicked every key on the keyboard, used two different power adapters (one had a blue light to indicate that it was powered), tried to used the AC adapter without a battery, all to no avail.
Eight days after the initial discovery (and a few days before I had planned to bring it in), I tried once more - removed the battery, reseated the memory chips, et. al. and then clicked the power switch (did not use a power supply). Unbelievably, IT TURNED ON! I was so shocked that I immediately took all of my personal information right off and did not turn it off again until I had cleaned the hard drive off. I reluctantly shut down the PC and was able to restart it again! And it was working fine until just this past Friday (3/29/13) where it is now dead again. I think that it went into sleep mode as I just closed the monitor and I saw the lights go off.
I have a feeling that my machine went into sleep mode and it still "thinks" it is sleeping and it can't be turned back on. Perhaps what I saw earlier was the complete draining of the power resources which rendered the machine completely cold so it was able to restart? Was there a Microsoft service release that could have caused this to happen? I have not changed my power settings to prevent the machine from sleeping but if I can get it restarted again, I will definitely change the setting.
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 .....
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.
I have been asked to attempt to recover a friends Studio 11737 Laptop. When you plug in the AC Power you get a white power light and then about 30 seconds late you get a amber blink 4 times and then a whiter light. The system will not power up to run any Diagnostics. What these indicators mean?
I have a Compaq CQ61-415SA and it seems to have stopped working. I turned it on and it was working fine, then I left it whilst doing something else for a couple of hours, it wasn't attached to the mains supply and when I went to use it the following happened.
When you turn it on the DVD drive tries to access and a fan comes on, that's as far as it goes. The power light stays on, the power lead light comes on and stays on, the two blinking lights blink once then pause then repeat. I have read that this is probably a hardware issue, is that right and what is the next step? I have disconnected the battery and held down the power switch for 20 seconds, but nothing happens.
I have a compaq presario CQ61-420US with similar problems below, except I have a black screen, fan turns blinking lights are the same (num lock and cap lock) but they are flashing continuously every second or 2. I have tried the hard reset with the ram fix, connecting an external monitor, changing the battery, and the power adapter to no avail. I also used compressed air on the vents just in case was stuffed with dust since it will overheat and may cause problems, but nothing.
One option I can think of is purchasing a new MotherBoard, but I'm trying anything else before that.
I have a problem with my Compaq Presario CQ61-325ED. It won't boot. What I see is a black/blank screen, with the numlock and capslock lights blinking twice every couple of seconds.
According to the blink codes, it seems the BIOS has been corrupted [URL] .... Sadly, no adequate solution is given on that page.Win + B or Fn + B at startup does nothing, pressing all the arrow keys gives me a continuous blinking pattern (edit: I can't seem to replicate this anymore...). I have also tried creating a bootable USB-stick with a BIOS update, but I don't think I have done it correctly, for it never gets activated (the light on the USB never turns on).
Also, removing/resetting the RAMs or just one of the RAMs does not work. Neither does removing/resetting the CMOS battery. How to successfully create a bootable USB-stick with BIOS update for CQ61-325ED?
I recently did a manula reformat of my M1730 and everything works fne but having a problem with the light FX.
I set them to sapphire blue using quick tune but when ever i restart the machine or fire it up for the first time the light are different. The left speaker is orange and the right one and touch pad are crimson red.
Then has soon has it boots into windows they will go back to my setting of sapphire blue.
Do they have to be set in the bios or somewhere else in order to always have them the colour i picked even when restarting?
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?
turning on then turning off? When I turn it on, the LED lights come on for seconds and then go off. I replaced the motherboard and the processor and its still the same problem. I also took out the RAM and had the same problem?
I replaced my Inspiron 9400 motherboard with M1710 XPS motherboard.The palmrest,lcd cover,hinge cover,front speakers,is M1710 parts.The only parts not XPS M1710 is the standard non led cpu and video fans which I borrowed from my Inspiron 9400.
The cpu and the video fan is borrowed from my I9400.Non LED.Could this be the cause?
My M1710 backcover,M1710 touchpad,and the front speakers do not light on.Eevn when the system is booting up in bios.
I already checked all connections and have the above all above
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.)
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.
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., if you have experienced an issu like this.
I'm unable to boot my Inspiron 15R SE laptop. There are no response from the laptop when I pressed the power button. No LED lights, no disk noise ! The only thing I noticed is the power cable light goes out immediately when plugged into the laptop.
I have tried taking the battery and power cable out , hold the power button for 30 seconds , place battery and power cable back then tried rebooting but laptop still won't boot...
I have a studio 14z that has been sitting for approximately 5 - 6 months without being connected to a power adapter or turned on. Needless to say, when I tried to power it up via the battery, there was nothing there. Pushing the button on the bottom of the battery does not cause any lights to flash.
This doesn't surprise me, but even if I plug it into it's AC adapter and take the battery out, it will not power on. Nothing happens. No lights (except on the power adapter) no fans spinning, nothing. If I have the battery in place, the light that is supposed to indicate that the battery is charging does not turn on. Basically it is "dead". It worked fine before sitting dormant.
Is it a lost cause? I just had it apart to check cabling, etc. and can't see anything obvious. Is there anyway to wake it up? I know the power adapter works as it powered another laptop just fine.
