My Inspiron M5030 laptop was working perfectly fine last night. It was plugged in all night, and I had done the usual hibernate/sleep mode before going to bed. When I tried to start it up this morning, the screen remained black. It made the startup fan noise but then that stopped. Then it gave seven quite loud beeps. If I don't turn it off, it continues to give the seven beeps separated by a short break.
My dell Inspiron N5110 Beeps 5 times, stop, 5 beeps,stop then the windows open normally and every thing is fine. However i changed the coin cell battery twice and nothing change still beeps. So i updated the BIOS but unfortunately didn't work. More over i did a system restore to a windows update a week ago also still beeps at startup.
It is beeping continuously (not 4 not 7 beeps) with intervals and by luck sometime it boots, no dell icon nothing black screen, this is my first experience with dell, before I used Hp its quite better !
My Dell Studio 1555 won't start anymore. When I want to turn it on, I get a beeping signal (2 beeps) and nothing happens. I tried all possible troubleshooting tips from the dell website (disconnecting all power and hold power button, reconnect to power, checked battery with the button on the battery, all fine, can't get into bios because computer doesn't start at all) but nothing works. Recently I also checked if the motherboard is connected properly and there is no issue either.
I also purchased a new dell adapter because my old one was a little bit damaged. The adapter is like the old one, and it's originally dell and the correct one for the studio 1555 so it can't be the adapter. Laptop also doesn't start when the battery is not in and it's only connected to the power.
I bought a brand new dell xps 12 about two months ago and the past month when I go to turn on my computer it takes multiple switches of the power button to turn on the computer. At first, I would flip the power switch and it would show the dell logo on the screen sound like it was powering up and then stop. I would hit the switch again and it would power up as normal. Now it's taking at least five times before it boots up normally. Is there something wrong with my hardware and is this a normal problem with the dell xps 12's?
My laptop will not turn on at all. The only 'signs of life' I get is the power button and the first of the laptop lights turning on for the briefest fraction of a second when I attempt turning it on (this itself only happens some of the time, not always).
Throughout Sunday computer had been telling to restart to properly install [those pesky] windows updates. When I first tried turning on my computer come monday, I got the standard 'configuring' prior to start up, and then laptop shut down. Trying to turn it on again led me to the black screen telling me that windows failed to start up properly. I attempt to launch windows, but this went to system restore (last saved moment) and this failed. In fact this was the last time my computer was really and truly on.
From then on is the situation I have now - not turning on at all except for the occasional slight flicker in the power button. (I have tried different AC adapters and powering up with and without battery, to no avail.)If it counts for anything, my fan has been becoming very, very loud recently.
Inspiron N5010 does nothing when power button pressed, if power cord is attached then blue charging light goes out indicating that power unit has been overloaded and tripped out. If power lead is unplugged from laptop and mains supply, then plugged into mains again power is restored to adaptor and blue light on lead lights up again. Using Dell manual I have stripped laptop down to component parts. If mains adaptor is plugged into I/O board then charging light on lead remains lit. When motherboard ( including CPU ) is remounted onto I/O board, when mains adaptor is plugged in charging light goes out. Motherboard does not show any burnt area's or signs of damage to any component. Tried all versions of static discharge to laptop before stripping down without success. If the only solution is to replace Motherboard how can I order. The existing board includes 1GB ATI Mobility Radeon HD550v Graphics. The laptop is out of warranty.
I have a dell Inspiron n5040 laptop . from yesterday I have been facing a problem that my laptop won't turn on and it just beep , beep and beep .

my laptop is dell n5110 i5.when i push the button to turn on the laptop nothing happens! i checked the charger and the battery in an another laptop and there was no issue with them but when i plug the charger to my laptop the green light on the charger turns off immediately and the same thing happens with other charger! it must be a short circuit! i tried to remove the battery and the charger and to hold the button for 10 sec like described in a video i found in dell support but the problem persists! is it a problem with the dc card on my mother board?
Laptop recently started playing up. I'm using a Inspiron 15R N5110.
If I turn the laptop off by going: Start, turn off, the display turns off but I can hear the fans still running. The only to turn it off is to hold down the power button.
Also if I shut my laptop lid the screen turns off but once again the fans are still running(doesn't go into to sleep mode). If I then re-open my laptop the display doesn't turn back on I have to hold the power button and then turn it back on.
can't get my laptop to boot up/start. No sounds. No beeps. No nothing. Power cord indicates it is working fine. Battery should be charged since I rarely operate it under the battery. Has been running fine, no problems, I paused a movie and since then it is completely dark and not operating. Really disappointing since it is my main computer that I use every day.
My dell Inspiron 1545 will not boot up into windows on start up, I've run a computer diagnostics, which came up with an error code 2000-0146. What this means? I've looked on the support pages & basically they say i need to contact them so it sound serious, is this so?
On new years eve i knocked a glass of wine onto my Dell Inspiron 6400 and immediately unplugged it and removed the battery in order to let it dry out for a bit.
After trying it a few times and the laptop not turning on the battery light began flashing 3 times in red and then nothing still not turning on.
A day or 2 later when i tried it again it this time turned on and was working fine all day (about 12 hours) untill i accidentally pulled out the AC plug in the back and it turned off and now wont switch on at all. When i now press the power button the battery light turns red but doesn't blink and still get no power.
I have a Inspiron 1525. Recently I have tried to watch movies. Soon after the movies start my laptop shutdown. There was a time I could watch movies but not now. It continually shuts down within a few minutes.
I am having troubles with my dell inspiron 1545. It has been working fine, but I just tried to switch it on, and it won't boot. After pressing the 'on' button, the cd drive flashes and makes a noise, like it normally does when I switch the laptop on. Then nothing happens for a whole minute, and then a loud repetitive beep starts. It's 4 beeps in a row, which then gets repeated. I have let the beep continue, but it doesn't seem to stop, unless I either press the 'on' button again or take the battery out.
Whenever i turn on my laptop(DELL ispiron N5110), my system gives 5 continuous beeps thrice, i don't know the reason and what kind of failure it may be indicating. Few days back it was showing blank screen for a short duration when i turned it on.
I have a g7 1113eo. that wont start up. the battery has been dead for a while, but its been working fine with just the adapter. But yesterday it wouldnt start up anymore, i tried doing the hardware reset (remove battery and hold power button for 15/30secs) but that didnt work, then i started disassembling it but stopped when I found out I didn't have a fitting screwdriver. then pressed the power button again just to check, and the pc started. was a fluke though cause i tried rebooting and it didnt start again. Whenever i press the power button, the small led next to the power plug, blinks 3 times. no sound or other led´s blinking. (The warranty is no longer valid)....
