My Inspiron 5110 laptop will not boot. It is displaying the Dell logo and the progress bar loads about 25%, then it stops. F2, F12 buttons are not working. Fn key + power button is not working. What can i do? The warranty has expired.
I have dell inspiron 5110 core i5. from last few days its giving continuous 8 beeps repeatedly before login screen appears. then it stops beeping . but sometime it keeps beeping after proper start up in repeated sets of 8 beeps ...before start up the beep sound come from laptop speakers then stops .but if continue to beep ..then sound only come in headsets . i have no problem with my laptop LCD display and neither i am using any external display.
I've had this laptop for 2-3 years and It had a motherboard issue within the first month of getting it, I got a new motherboard and all was dandy, but now there is apparently a system timer failure. The only thing plugged in to it is my charger and the last time I used it I didn't even have internet I just watched a few shows that I had on it and then I closed it when it was running out of power. When I hit the power button it seems like its going to start, and the buttons on it light up and then it starts to beep four times then a break then repeated four times. Nothing appears on the screen.
I have the Inspiron 15R 5110, however recently it just stopped working. I have tried all the suggestions (removing battery & power chord then pressing power button for 30 sec etc. Nothing works and it won't power up). The power button light comes on when pressed (while connected to AC or without AC). The other lights flicker and then nothing. After 10 seconds a repeated cycle of 3 beeps begins. I don't want to waste money on a new battery in case the problem is actually (probably) the motherboard. Can I purchase a new motherboard? How much? Machine is 2 years old bought new from Dell.

I'm trying to upgrade the operating system on my laptop. Preinstalled Windows 7 x64 Home Basic, and I update to Windows 8 x64 Professional. At the end of the installation process hangs and all I see on the screen - this is the logo in the center of the screen, a few words at the bottom and five frozen in one position points that previously ran in a circle.
I repeated the installation several times, but all of these attempts have ended the same way.
Have any of you have a similar situation and how you solved it?
I'm using Dell Inspiron N5110 and recently did fan cleaning on my laptop. Once I've completed the fan cleaning, my laptop doesn't detect my charger. No error message appears and my laptop only can be switched on by using battery power.
I am using dell inspiron 3521 windows 8 preloaded. Whenever i start my laptop. It stuck on dell logo with full blue bar. And after few minutes, a blue screen shows that some files are missing. Error code: 0xc0000185.
When i diagnosed..its showing error code 0142. Hard drive error. And when i force it to boot. It shows in black screen with white letters "no bootable device found, press any key". And when i press any key.. Its repeating the same error... Now i dont know what is happening.. Warranty over..
Two and a half year old Inspiron 5110 with Win 7 Home Premium. Cloned the internal drive using Easeus. Set the BIOS to USB in number one position, but this laptop won't boot from the external drive. Is this laptop bootable via a USB platter drive or a thumb drive? Also, can the recovery partition be used to repair Win 7 or is the recovery partition only to format the drive and install software the way it was when new ?
i have one dell inspiron 910 laptop. I broke it connecting a wrong power adapter and now a need a small piece that is inside ; i think its a MOSFET transitor, and there are two of them in the motherboard (only one is break). In the surface I can read : 4835d X860 . I am searching since some days ago and i can´t find this piece or similar to replace.
I was performing a BIOS update on Dell Inspiron N5110 to Latest bios version, when the laptop became inactive plus the fan started to run at full speed. i could not even switch off the machine by pressing the power button. At the end i had to pull out AC cord and battery.Now its dead(No activity at all). how can i restore bios???
I have Dell Inspiron N5010 for quite some time and yesterday LCD's just gone all of a sudden. I get 8 beeps again and again which seems to show LCD failure. I connected it to an external LCD and it works. the problem is that I am on the biz trip right now and this beeping sound really annoys me (until I solve this problem by replacing LCD or buying a new lap top). How to kill this beeping sound temporarily?
I have an Inspiron 17R SE 7720 running Windows 7 64-bit Pro which has been working fine, but I was thinking about getting an mSata flash drive to cache the hard disk, and reading on this forum discovered that my A01 bios version wasn't up to the job, so tried to update the bios tonight.
I downloaded the 7720A12.exe from the Dell site but wanted to backup my bios first. Again searching this forum, I saw a post that said there was a backup option when running the exe. Wrong.
Running it from within windows it immediately said it was going to reboot (I wasn't given an option!). My laptop powered down as if doing a restart, but immediately hung.
There was nothing but blackness on the screen, no text, no beeps. It appeared to be stuck in a boot cycle, as the screen back light was coming on, and off, and on, and off etc, for 10 minutes straight.
I powered down and powered up and I get the dell logo and can enter the bios setup, but after that, no matter what I do, I get a dos based "BOOT MENU" with just these options on:
Network Boot <- does nothing except messes up the display of this menu Setup <- loads the bios settings Diagnostics <- runs a diagnostic program which tests the hardware and reports all tests pass Change boot mode setting <- does nothing except messes up the display of this menu
I can't get passed this menu.
I've tried booting from a DVD - both a Windows 7 installation disk, and the Dell recovery DVD I created when I first got the laptop, neither DVD boots, and apart from buzzing the DVD drive, don't have any effect at all.
Both disks have been tested in another Inspiron laptop I have, and I also set the boot priority order in the bios so that DVD is the first item in the list.
I've also tried a bootable USB stick, but no joy there either. The light on the stick shows it's being accessed, but I still end up at the Boot Menu above.
The 7 beeps means CPU crash test failure and the processor needs replaced.
Unfortunately, our laptop is out of warranty and Dell will charge me to have the processor replaced. My son has learning disabilities and requires this computer as it has programs that he needs for school that we don't have the disks for. I'm incredibly frustrated that Dell will not fix the processor without charge. After the very long and frustrating discussion with the Dell representative, we have decided that we will never purchase another Dell product. I will not be having the laptop fixed as I refuse to pay for repairs for an inferior product. If it was to be fixed and overheated again and damaged the processor, they will only provide a 90 day warranty for the replacement processor.
I will now have to purchase another laptop for my son and try and obtain the programs that he needs through the school board. However, all of his voice files are lost and he will have to spend hours retraining the new programs which will cause him much frustration.
Unit powered up fine before, no issue's....worked like a champ until drive failure.
Had a hard drive error code, replaced w/ upgraded 500GB from 320GB. Computers are not my acumen although I found that I can take them apart and put them back together w/o issue-so far. Rebuilt my old Toshiba Satellite 455...new base, top, charger jack, screen, etc..works perfectly! It would be the drive which slides in on the left,, held by two screws, not the disk drive unit.
Powered up fine, than several minutes later powered off. Charger is fine, I replaced the charger jack, still won't power up.
I broke the WLAN white connector, pulled the male end off the board by accident., black OK. It broke when I went to replace the charger port. That wouldn't cause it to not power up though right?
I replaced the complete charger port board, not just the port. Seems something happened after I replaced the new driver card
