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 Inspiron N5110 :: Won't Turn On / No Beeps Or Blinking Lights

Apr 1, 2013

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.

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.

HP Compaq CQ61-415SA OS/Software :: Notebook Stopped Working But Lights Blinking

Dec 11, 2014

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.

HP Compaq Presario CQ61-420US Lockups :: System Not Booting / Black Screen With Blinking Lights

Apr 21, 2014

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.

HP Compaq Presario CQ61 Recovery :: Black Screen - Numlock And Capslock Lights Blinking Twice Every Couple Of Seconds

Jul 22, 2014

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?

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 :: 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 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.

Dell :: Disable XPS Lights On Screen Hinge?

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.

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 Studio 14z :: Won't Power On - No Flashing Lights

Feb 15, 2013

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.

Dell :: Studio 15Volume Buttons Blinking For No Reason

I just got a brand new Studio 15 laptop a couple of days ago. So far, I love it, but there's one really odd thing. 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?

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

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?

There is no error message or something else related with my battery, and windows says that battery is fully charged when it's plugged in which is pretty normal. I tried diagnostics but there wasn't any error messages.
