I have an inspiron 9400 that has been having some issues lately. As of right now, when I push the power button, the power light comes on but it does not boot or even post. The Num lock stays on and the caps lock and scroll lock lights blink for about 40 seconds then the whole thing shuts off. what those blinking lights mean. I have search dell support but have found nothing.
My fiance has had an Inspiron 1501 for some time. Today after she put the computer to sleep, the PC would not come out of sleep mode (typical windows problem); however,
button the fan kicks on and then the screen stays black and the CAPS lock and SCROLL lock lights come on and stay illuminated. I could not find the POST code for these two lights remaining on. I've tried re-seating the processor, as well as cleaning out the heat sinks.
I'm afraid that the PC may have overheated and fried the board/processor/some component, but I wanted some advice before I began searching for a new laptop
Most of the time the laptop will not boot up and I get the single blinking LED on Caps Lock and Num Loc. However, if I am persistent and keep trying the start button it will boot up. After it boots up every thing works fine. I can even do a restart and it will stop and boot back up. But if I do a shutdown then I will have to push the start button several times (it will come up with the single blinking LED on Caps Lock and Num Loc) before it will boot up again.
I have been having trouble with my Dell Laptop recently. I have a dell inspiron 6400 and when i try to power it on it wont turn on. When I press the power button , the num lock and caps lock LED'S begin to flash for a few seconds before going off.
The laptop was running hot. I cleaned the dust from the fan area. The battery is bad. I checked the volts on the charger which was 43v - bought a new charger that's 18.5 v. I wiped the ram and started with one and moved to different positions. I now have a black screen with the cap lock key blinking blue non-stop and the f12 key led light is constantly on orange. What I should try next and what does the cap lock led blinking without stopping means - is that a code or have a significance?
The keyboard on my HP Pavilion g6 is locked. It was working and then my cat ran across the keyboard and must have hit a key that locked it. The mouse pad works. No cap lock or number lock on. I have already tryed:
1) going in control panel and unchecking everything in make keyboard easier to use.
Recently, I turned on the on screen indicators for caps and num lock by accident when trying to get the pop-up window to stop opening every time I hit one of the buttons. Now I don't know how to disable it, and it's a pain while playing games.
Solutions tried: Going to preference, there is no "On-Screen Display Tab" Going to run the regedit.
When ever i start the computer it lights up the screen but no dell logo and then starts to blink the caps lock led then shuts off 10 or so seconds later. it only flashes the caps lock led. no other.
it was working. i was in the middle of install windows and then all of sudden blue screen of death and then now this. at first all that was happening was no image at all on screen and the number lock led was flashing and the other two lite up.
that ment processor but now im getting this error after i reseated the processor. I need some help here. dell is sending me a new motherboard and cpu but i want to know why this happened in the first place.
I purchased an HP g62 notebook 2/12yrs ago I have not used it for almost a year. Problem it is having at first it was not charging properly I would get a message about battery being low and may need to be replaced I continued using it like that for like a month then one day I went to start it up this is what I got' blank screen,caps lock bli king 6 times then blink another 3 times then 6 times then 3 times repeated while the internet button is orange. The fan runs the CD opens, I just replaced the battery and new charger.
I have an HP g6-1325sa had an issue that had to replace the fan. However since then nothing will appear on the screen F12 has an orange light on and the caps lock continuously flashes every 2-3 seconds. This is not a blink code it does this continuously.So far i have tried blocking the vents and leaving the laptop running for over an hour as I heard it can be caused by dry solder joints.
I have also tried replacing the motherboard and have twice managed to get a cursor flashing on the screen however niether of these times could a normal boot happen as the HDD was disconnected on both of these occassions, the first time this happened i had just disconnected power and battery and held down power for 30 seconds, i'm guessing that was a cmos reset.
The only cause i can think of is that the processor was cooked when the fan was replaced but having already paid for another motherboard i'd like someone to confirm what it means when the caps lock blinks endlessly and if there is another way to repair it.
I am using an HP Pavilion g6-1125sw laptop. The laptop is about 5 months old and 2 days ago something odd happened. Let me start from the beginning; I was changing the graphics properties of a game and when I pressed "Proceed with changes", the screen went blank but the computer was still working. So I switched it off (took the battery out) and booted again, and it went as far as to my wallpaper and I was able to view my wallpaper and all for a about minute then screen went blank again. I tried using HP advanced diagnostic tools that come up just when you boot up, but even with that the screen went blank.
The next day the laptop didn't even boot up, the fans were whirring but not the BIOS screen came up. The CAPS lock button is blinking in intervals of two, the wireless button is orange and thats it. Its been like this ever since.

I have a HP Pavilion dv7-4065dx laptop with Windows 7 64 bit that will not boot up or go to the Bios screen. When the laptop is turned on, you hear the system fan start, power button light comes on, and the caps lock button starts to continually blink once every three to four seconds. The HDD activity light is also on but is solid red with no blinking. No changes have been made to the laptop and it was working perfectly fine just a few hours earlier. I have attempted the hard reset of the computer and reseating of the memory cards, but the laptop still would not boot.
I have a major problem with my hp pavilion dv6-3143sa laptop.
I put it to a shop and they told me it was a motherboard/cpu problem and they couldn't source parts. I managed to get the parts. I put the motherboard first, but didn't work. I then added the cpu and put on thermal paste, but still didn't work.
My laptop will power on but I'm still getting a blinking light on the caps lock button and a black screen.
I have several HP 8530p and I getting the num lock & cap lock leds blinking 5 times which indicates a general system board error. Bought new boards still getting the same issue. Note all the units will boot to windows fine, but there is a 10-15 sec delay in hard drive response when operating pc. The mouse is real time responsive but once you clink on a item the lag shows up. What to look for as the problem, CPU , Memory changed, Fans, Cooling system. Bios versions have been updated, I've torn the unit down, cleaned and added new thermal paste to CPU, GPU and added copper shims to promote better heat transfer. The system Diagnostics indicates hardware is ok.

I Have an Inspiron 1520, 2gb ram, 8400M GSI installed a webcam driver and tried to reboot.Num-lock Scroll-Lock Caps-Lock on not flashing. No beeps. No dell logo. After 5 secs, it restarts. I don't have a battery. The power indicator is on. My AC adapter light is also on.What I've tried so far:Removed both 512 ram 1 at a time and still the same results. Tried other ram.Unplugged and plugged back in the CMOS battery.The battery works on another laptop. Removed WLan card.
Recently, out of nowhere the computer is not powering up. I plug the power cable in (without the battery) and the caps lock key's light lights up but nothing else happens.
Once I place the battery into the laptop with the power cable, the third light on the front of the laptop (below the touchpad) lights up in this sequence and keeps repeating itself:
Amber/red Amber/red Amber/red Amber/red White
Then repeats from beginning.
I have tried the usual, power discharge by making sure all power sources are removed and holding down the power button for 60secs. Tried with known-working RAM and also with an external monitor - no luck.
There are no other POST notifications that I can see, no beeps etc. Just the lights on the front which only happens when the battery is plugged in with the power cord. I cannot find anywhere in the manual what the lights mean.
I have a 1 year old inspiron 1520 laptop which has suddenly stopped working.
When I press the power button, the power light comes on but I don't hear a fan whirring, the battery light also comes on. The screen is totally blank and the caps lock icon continually flashes and after about a minute the computer shuts down.
This happens with the battery attached or connected to the mains.
I have a inspiron 1710 It has been ok for the most part But the issue that i seem to have and bugs the heck out of me is that when i'm typing and tap the caps lock its like every thing stops and it is a few seconds then the caps lock changes to upper or lower and i have to wait for it to come back on then i can type again But i can not just tap caps and type , BUT if i have a external key board No problem.
I am having a problem whereby it takes ages for my caps lock to go from capital letters back to normal & vice versa.
The little bag with the A coms on then you have to wait a few seconds for it to click off then you can start to type again.
I had this problem when I first got the laptop & it rectify itself but now the dreaded thing is back again, as I remember it was a problem as I remember someone mentioning something about the same problem before.
Either email or office its still the same. I am forever using the shift button to get around this problem...
My laptop won't boot. I press the power button, the power button lights and I hear the system fan run. Then it shuts off and the caps lock LED flashed about 20 times, then turns off if under battery power. If on AC power then the LED stays steady after flashing. Screen never turns on. Late yesterday and late today the computer started hanging. Usually a restart would fix it for a short while. But now it's dead dead. I suspected overheating so I did a bit of digging and figured out how to remove and clean the fan intake. It's was clogged up pretty good, but that hasn't fixed the problem and the laptop is now cool to touch on the bottom..
I opened the laptop (Pavilion G6 2241sa) cover and saw that keyboard cable was loose. I reconnected it properly, closed the cover and switched laptop on. Now, all keys are working fine, BUT CAps Lock light is not working well. Key is functioning, but when I press it - the light come on, but as soon as I release the key - the light goes off. Light doesn't stay. Also when the actual function of caps lock is on, when I press any other key the light come on the surface of Caps lock key but it is dim.
I rechecked keyboard cable again - all is fine, but Caps lock light doesn't stay on when pressed. I do practice typing for the last 3 months for few hours each day, so I guess it also affects the life span of my keyboard.
I have an Aspire E5-411... I like many others am experiencing the same issue. A "sound" notification would not work for me. I went to the Windows 8.1 site and saw someone ask the very same question about his Acer a few months ago. The Rep. at the Windows site told him that that feature was locked and he would have to contact his OEM (in this case Acer) how this feature could be unlocked. Is this true? I need to be able to see a caps lock notification.
