Dell Inspiron N4010 :: Won't Turn On Or Stay On If Its Not Plugged In
Dec 11, 2014
I have an inspiron n4010. I replaced the battery and it worked for a couple of weeks. But now, it won't turn on or stay on if it's not plugged in. And I can't have it plugged in all the time. It says that it's plugged in but not charging.
Recently, I found that there is some faults with the fan resulting in shutting down randomly. Then, after 2 months that the problem start, the laptop would not turn on although if it is connected to the power. When i press the switch on button, NOTHING would happen.
Working on a dell Inspiron b130 laptop. The power is plugged in, and battery is in. The power will not turn on at all, no fan or CPU. The main power light comes on when button is pressed for a moment then goes off. The battery light flashes slowly. The power cord adapter has a light on it and that says its working. I have tried taking the battery out and that does nothing.
I had assumed since its an older laptop that maybe the power was so drained that it needed it to be charged a little to have enough power to turn on. But it's been awhile an nothing yet. Is it trashed? We do have another hard drive around to try would that matter at all?
Battery and screen questions,' 1 when not using the laptop should I leave it plugged in? 2 when playing music w the windows media player that came installed on the laptop how do I turn off the screen. I have set the screen to turn off ib 3 min but it does not turn off
I have a Dell inspiron n4010 that will not power on, the battery light flashes on for a couple of seconds when I plug the AC power adapter in, and then switches off. The laptop does not respond when I try to power it on.I have tried unplugging the AC power adapter, holding the power button down for 20 seconds and plugging it back in - that did not do the trick either.
I have a year old Inspiron N4010 that as of this morning will not power up. Until that time the charging lights and battery were all indicating the batrery was fully charged and everything was as it should be. This morning when i went to power up there were no lights, the laptop made no sounds....it was dead.
I have checked the power transformer and cord and it has a green light and power. I have taken the battery out and tried to power up. I have taken the battery out and reseeded it. Nothing is working.
I cannot try disabling the touch pad using the key to the right of the F12 key.
I went to get onto my laptop yesterday evening and it wasn't picking up any wifi. I did the trouble shoot and it said to connect to an ethernet cable. This has never happen to me before and I don't know what to do. Today I did a system restore to a few days ago when it was working just fine... nothing happened.. I tried to press the button on the keyboard to turn the wireless adapter on and that didn't work either. I really need this computer at least for a couple more months for my school work.
I start the laptop and I get the black screen with the Dell logo on it. There is a progress bar at the bottom that moves across to the right as the boot up progresses. In the bottom right corner, it shows the option of hitting F2 for Set Up or F12 for Boot Menu. I can access both of these menus. It then progresses to a screen with the Windows logo with the words "Resuming Windows" underneath. Once that completes, I get a black screen!
I was told that I should boot up the laptop in safe mode by hitting F8.....
This is an old notebook. A Compaq Presario 1200 Series notbeook (1200 XL-101). When I plug in the power cable, the LED lights up, indicating it's plugged in - however absolutely nothing happens if I hit the power button.
I have tried this with or without the Battery in it. In the past this notebook was able to turn on WITHOUT any battery in it if it was plugged in; being directly powered by the power cable.
Does anyone have any input one where I can begin to fix this? I don't want to bring it in to a shop; I'd rather fix it myself. I'm handy with hardware so I can open and replace parts. I just don't know what is wrong with it.
I've got a Yoga 11s which is barely a few months old and hasn't seen much use. Having the same problem - it won't power on or charge (powers on only when plugged in). In Lenovo Energy Manager battery status shows "Good" and charging status shows "Battery Connected". WIndows power management icon however, shows Plugged-in, not charging. Never had that problem before either, but it came with the power-on failure so I guess they're related.
I have a N5110 that just recently started acting up.When I turn it on, it shows me the dell screen and then it tries to boot windows but then it turns off right away. Sometimes it gets far enough to show me a black screen with white lettering that says windows boot manager and wants me to select windows 7 as the operating system but when I try to hit enter to select it, the laptop wont respond and it turns off.
I tried pressing f12 and running diagnostics. Sometimes it will respond and let me get to the blue boot device screen but then it stops responding and wont let me run the diagnostic, then it turns off.
This also happened yesterday but after a few tries i was able to run the diagnostic and it came back saying everything was great, then my laptop rebooted and worked just fine. But today when I try to turn it on it wont work, I have been at it for over an hour.also, when i try to boot it, it will sometimes give me beep codes: 2 beeps, then 1 long beep. It only has time to do this once before it turns off.
I just finished installing a new screen on my daughters laptop and, upon powering on, the screen stays black and i get 8 loud beeps. I have checked the connection behind the screen and it is secure. I read a few related posts and held the d button while powering on but nothing happens.
I was using my laptop today, and the battery light just randomly started blinking red, even though the battery still had 33% left. So I plugged it in, and the light still kept flashing and when I held my mouse over the battery icon, it said that it was plugged in but not charging. Does this mean that the battery is toast?
I own an Inspiron N4010 14R dell laptop. When I restarted my laptop yesterday, i couldn't boot into windows and windows logo was rotating forever. So I thought OS was curropted and tried to reinstall OS. But it also didn't work. I couldn't able to install OS. But I could able to delete a partition and refresh it.
Then I ran a diagnosis on my computer and it showed an error code 2000-0146. (saying HDD needs to be replaced)
I called Dell support center and asked them about the issue. They said my hdd nedds to be replaced. So I bought a new 2.5" SATA seagate hard drive and installed it in the system.
But even after that, the same problem exists. But this time Diagnostic doesn't show any error. My warranty period is void.
My Lenovo T500 will not turn on, despite being plugged into the wall. Even when it's plugged in, none of the indicator lights show that the computer is plugged in. It also won't turn on using the battery.
My Inspiron 15R SE which I purchased from Dell Canada in February 2013 recently acted up on me. It was just like any other day, I run the laptop battery down, then plug in the power adapter when its low.
This time however, the laptop just suddenly shutdown (not through Windows, like just up and died). I tried to power it up again and each time, barely 30 seconds after it powers up, it just up and dies.
I had to do work on it so I thought I let it sit for awhile to charge the battery, thinking that I can run it on battery at least. But alas I left it there for even a whole night and the battery did not even charge a drop.
I then tried removing the battery and only running on power adapter only but it won't even start. I have also tried another power adapter but the same issue persists so I can safely rule out the power adapter.
The power port doesn't look damaged either seeing as I have always loyally bought Dell throughout the years, and I really need to get work done (it is my primary computer).
Had a laptop for just over 2 years so out of warranty. The laptop will not stay on for longer than 30 seconds - 1 minute, it doesn't matter what I'm doing (tried going into everything, Bios, safe mode, etc). I've bought a new battery and nothing has changed.
The laptop has had overheating problems in the past, whereby it would turn off if the fan was in someway impeded. Since this problem I have tried blowing into the fan and even used a hoover but nothing has worked.
Does it sound like its an issue with a fan or something else?
I have Inspiron 14R N4010. Its 2 years old. Its Toshiba hard drive(320 Gb) crashed 8 months before so I bought new WD hard drive(500 Gb), which also crashed again 2 weeks before(OS drive had bad sectors apperently) . Hence i got it replaced by WD for a new 500Gb hard drive.
Now, when I am trying to install OS in my new hard drive, i am getting following error:
after learning about possible mistakes by reading some forums
1) I checked that hard drive is installed properly, all connections are good. 2) DVD I'm using to install Window 7 is bootable one & i have used it before 3) BIOS settings are checked to boot fromCD/DVD drive. (It is not booting from network adapter which supposed to be reason for ethernet error as per many other forums) 4) I tried draining current by pressing power button for 20 sec to reset settings.(I read in some forum) but even that didn't worked.
BIOS is detecting hard drive...so that is also not issue. Could new hard drive be damaged? should i get this new one also replaced again? I need some way to confirm this before me sending it back to WD.
In one microsoft forum, I read for same problem
"update the basic input/output system (BIOS) to the latest version by contacting the motherboard or computer manufacturer and check if it works.Important: Modifying BIOS/complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) settings incorrectly can cause serious problems that may prevent your computer from booting properly. Microsoft cannot guarantee that any problems resulting from the configuring of BIOS/CMOS settings can be solved. Modifications of the settings are at your own risk.
My mother was having some trouble with her laptop, and I was wondering if you guys had an idea of what the problem could be. Basically, it won't turn on, even with the battery plugged into the wall. It is completely unresponsive. The last time she used it was last night, and she said that when she was done, she left it on with the screen down and the battery plugged in.
I have tried turning off computer and letting batteries charge, tried turning of and holding power button, this model has internal batteries, I don't want to open laptop and try disconnecting batteries.
