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.
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.
My Dell Inspiron 14z (Reg Model: P35G, Reg Type no: P35G001, won't turn on and won't even charge.
I used it to show a video to my mom then closed the lid (I programmed it so that closing the lid will lead to hibernation). When I tried to open it again after a few hours, it won't turn on. Even though I know it wasn't low in battery, I charged it. I then noticed that the light that was supposed to indicate that it was charging was not turned on. This incident happened a few months back but resolved itself after I let my laptop rest for 2 days.
For about a month or so my Vostro V130 has not been turning on. Upon pushing the power button, the power button itself lights up for a second at most and then cuts right off. During this time, the screen remains black and nothing else occurs. I've tried turning it on while plugged in and charging and tried turning it on after being charged an hour or so. Everything yields the same results.
I have a HP DV6000 Laptop. Im aware of the problems these models have. But this one I have not yet heard of. When I attempt to power it on, the lights turn on for 2 seconds, and it shuts right off. Its not like the Video card issue everyone speaks of. I have extensive technical background, and I have tried taking everything out, and trying each part one by one. I have tried swapping the power button ribbons, I have tried removing the bios battery. I guess im wondering if anyone else has ever been able to figure out whats going wrong with this setup? copuld it be a lack of contact between heat sync and CPU? please give me whatever input you can. I would like to not have to spring for a new Mobo. I can solder, and I am thinking of trying to heat the soldering points with a heat gun maybe. I dont know if thats the problem tho. and also, when the AC adaptor is plugged in, the blue LED surrounding it is on.
I also tried all this (of course)
1. Remove battery. 2. Remove AC power. 3. Remove and reseat your RAM modules. 4. Replace your RAM modules. 5. Hold down your power button for 1 minute. 6. Replace your AC power (not battery) and turn on remove the small bios cmos battery for 15min and then put it back in
If I plug in the charger the LED light turns on with orange and if I leave it, it will eventually turn blue. Yet will still not power up. I have a new battery for it. I have tried removing battery and letting it stand then hold power button for 1 minute then plugging in but that didn't work.
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've have had a Lenovo g500s running windows 8.1 for almost a year and never had an major issue. But recently I have found that it will not turn on. I have found that by taking out and putting the battery back in will rarely result in the battery light blinking in red. If i try to turn it on at this point it will turn for a few second "prepare for automatic repairs" and then in a few seconds turn back off its original turned off state. I have tried "Flee-Power" while calling technical support and it made a small noise and then issued a burning smell. It's 1 year warranty is still valid.
I purchased a Dell Venue 11 on 12/24/13 and received it this past Saturday, the 28th. I ordered the $499 version. I was very satisfied with the item and found it comparable to the Windows Surface 2 Pro. I took my time to install all my apps that I needed and to adjust my security settings so that I could log in remotely to my work servers.
Yesterday while I was doing work on my tablet, I noticed my battery was low. So I plugged it in and continued to work. However, the tablet turned off on me about 15 minutes later. I thought maybe it didn't charge as fast as it pulls energy. So I plugged it in to charge while it was off for almost 3 hours. It still would not turn back on. I was using the Dell charger that came with the tablet. I tested the charge with other items that take the mini USB port and it charged them, fine.
In addition to my tablet being a brick, I also ordered the Mobile Keyboard with it. I received an email stating that I would not receive the keyboard until the end of January because it is'in production'. Very bothersome because had I known this, I wouldn't have even bothered purchasing this item from Dell, altogether.
when I hit the power button, the fans kick on and a couple lights turn on, but nothing happens- the screen remains blank. I don't even see the acer splash screen like usual. Also, I'm pretty sure that the hard drive isn't spinning as well.
I know the lcd isn't dead as I tried hooking it up to an external monitor, but that didn't work.
This laptop isn't even one month old.. this is sincerely frustrating as i have alot of important work saved on here...
-When I plug in the charger.. the battery light turns on for a second then the battery light turns back off. -When I try to turn on the laptop with the charger plugged in.. nothing happens at all. When I try to turn on the laptop with just the battery without being plugged in.. the power button will light up for a second then go back off.
I've tried: taking out the battery and holding down the power light for 1 minute.. waited 30 seconds tried turning it on with the power chord with no prevail. holding Fn and turning it on and nothing
Some signs I've been seeing: only bad signs i've seen was before it just didn't boot anymore.. maybe twice out of the 6 last time i've booted.. as soon as i typed my password to get into windows it would just shut off. i'd jus reboot and it worked fine. when it stopped turning on.. after messing with plugging it in or not (i didn't know if the battery was dead) i was able to make it past the windows sign on screen.. was going to email myself all my work before it suddenly shut off on me again. the battery had maybe 1/3rd life before it died
I might have interchanged battery chargers with another older dell model laptop.. but i think only a few times at most.. it mostly sits at work on a docking station at work. i have a feeling i never did though. from what i've read it seems like the battery chargers are all compatible as long as it's dell.
1. When I plug charger in to my SL510 lights don't turn on. If battery are take out - laptop is impossible to turn on; 2. If I plug same charger to my second (old r60 thinkpad - lights is turning on and all boots normally); 3. I take charge from my second laptop and test on SL510 - lights still not turning on; 4. If I try to boot without charger (on battery) laptop is working fine.
Is it possible that - when my battery be empty I can never turn on my laptop?
The computer is in dead state the next morning after I switched its Windows power plan to high performance. In order to unlock power plan options, I disabled connected standby via a registry key in HKLMSystemControlSet001ControlPowerCsEnabled to 0.
After investigating, I read that this computer doesn't support normal hibernate wake-up process other than connected standby. I select shut down option in the menu (hibernate option disappeared). It's possible that shut down option in the menu was actually set to sleep/hibernate in power settings by default.
The battery was at 100% before I last turned it off.
The LED power indicator doesn't light on when power supply is connected on either DC or microUsb.
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...
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 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.
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.
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%.
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.
Dell Inspiron 1150 plug charger in two green lights start flashing replaced battery with identical laptop same thing but if I charge one on another computer then put it in this one it will run till battery goes dead and will not charge
I'm having some problems with my charger. When I plug it in and turn the laptop on it says that it couldn't recognize the charger and won't charge, the laptop itself works, however. Sometimes it does charge, but rarely. I'm in a little hurry and didn't search thru the forum. Apologize if this issue was answered before.
My initial thoughts were that I had a battery issue the Ion battery. So I went to dell and purchased a new battery 2 weeks ago. Plugged that guy in and my theory was a bust.
Next, I turned to the ac adapter and decided it must be the problem. Back to dell to drop some more $$$ - just arrived and...well, let's just say I wouldn't be writing to this post if that solved my problem. I have surfed through various other posting will no avail.
The laptop can run fine on just the ac power - just no juice is getting to the battery to recharge it. I went into the BIOS set-up and it stated that it did not recognize the ac adapter -
can't figure why that may be the case, but none of the less I've got nothing but Dell products here - no knock-offs. Any suggestions or theories? I just can't believe I could have a bad motherboard here - the laptop works great otherwise.
