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.
my N5010 won't turn on. I've tried removing the battery and power cable and starting independently of each other....no joy. When I push he start button it beeps 3 times, there will be a pause of maybe 10 seconds and will beep 3 times again. This cycle repeats. The screen just stays black.
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.
I recently got a new battery for my Inspiron 15R, N5010, charged it but didn't use it for a while. When I decided to do some work on it, now the Power botton and Battery light is flashing white. Try the troubleshooting of removing the battery, power cord and hold the power botton down for 10 seconds, it's still flashing. Not sure what to do next.
my Dell inspiron 15R N5010 crashed on me, I had no previous warning that this was going to happen, when it crashed I was just watching a movie and not using up much CPU power. The laptop had not over been over heated, I checked straight after it crashed. It now is completely unresponsive i've tried using different chargers, batteries and I have also checked the internal hardware and everything seems to be intact, I assume at the moment it is a motherboard malfunction.
i have dell N5010 laptop.it shuts down automatically whenever i restart the windows.i can't even install any new operating system as it turns off automatically.i am sure that it is not due to heat. but after 20 minutes it becomes normal..my laptop configuration:
Am using N5010..Windows 7 Ultimate.I already used the Bluetooth mouse ,now i tried to add the Bluetooth mouse using add device but the system cannot find the Bluetooth mouse its keeps on searching. Mouse works fine in other systems. Its Belkin mouse
I just bought a new battery (90 Whr) for my Dell Inspiron N5010 as the original one had reached the end of it's life. I put the new battery in, charged it fully, and when I turned my laptop on the window colors were changed to blue and when I go into the personalization screen it won't let me change back to the settings I had before. Also I used to be able to preview the windows I had open by hovering over the icon in the task bar now it just shows a blue bar with the page title and when I hover over it nothing happens. I hover over the right side of the task bar to show desktop and nothing happens. What I wan't to know is how come the battery changed all this and how do I get things back the way I had them?
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.
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 . The day it's start happening before that day I mean previous day some writing appears what says I don't remember hard ware or something is not working or so and it just turn off .
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.
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 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 some problems with a new Dell laptop (bought a few weeks ago). The model is Dell 15.6'' Inspiron 3542. I've searched on google and on other forums but i didn't found something useful for my problem.
The problem is that when i turn on the laptop, running only on battery, after starting the windows, it freezes. If i turn on the laptop, with the AC adaptor plugged in, it works perfectly. But if i remove the AC adaptor, the laptop freezes after a while. If i turn off the laptop without the AC adaptor plugged in, the screen goes black but the laptop dosen't shut down completly, it freezes. And every time it freezes, the only way to shut down the laptop is to press for 5 sec the start button. I can use the laptop on battery mode, only on "Safe Mode" option of Windows.
I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bits, and i installed all the drivers from Dell support site.
I mentioned in the subject my laptop won't start. I checked forums here and tried the offered solutions but nothing. My AC works fine, green light turns on when I plug it, and stays the same when I plug it to laptop. Laptop doesn't make any sounds...my led for battery on laptop doesn't work when I plug it on AC.
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.
My laptop model is Dell inspiron n5010 (2011) . It was running fine until today when suddenly while I played game it started lagging, first I thought that probably I run too many app but I ran task manager and saw that my cpu is 100 % and led lamp for hdd is always on. I restarted and saw that right after I click the button the led is on. I ran defrag disk twice.
Battery drained on my laptop. I did not notice that it was not charging. I purchased a new charger cord, but it would not charge. The laptop shut off and will not come back up. When I press the power button, the power button flashes on, three lights flash on front, you can hear either the hard drive or fan start up but then it all goes off. Do I need a new battery?
I have a Inspiron 15 Intel (N5010) laptop with Win7 64bit. when I start my computer with headphones plugged in and then unplug them, no sound comes from the speakers. If I start the laptop with headphones unplugged then there is no problem (also, when I start with the unplugged, then plug the headphones in and then unplug, the sound from the speakers is ok).
I installed the latest audio drivers and codecs. But now that I think of it, I installed latest network drivers from dell site. I have a TOSHIBA MK6461GSYN hard drive and I wonder where could I check if there is a newer firmware available? Checked Toshiba site and they had some update program but that needed a floppy drive.
My laptop had been acting funny in the last few weeks. In some cases it would give a quick blue screen then restart. In order to fix that, I attempted to do a system restore with the Dell Factory Image. However, I received the "Bootmgr is missing" upon the system rebooting. Are there any solutions out there that do not require a Windows 7 re-installation disk, I do not have one. If the solution does require a DVD, where can I order one. My laptop is only two years old, so I do not believe that the hard drive is dying.
I have replaced mother board and LCD of my Inspiron N5010. After replacement, it started to shut down constantly, usually 5-10 min after start up. I have run diagnostics, it showed error 2000-0413 (LCD cable not detected), but could not finish all diagnostic process, cause it shut down again during CPU memory test.
Is it possible that because of this error computer shut downs then working or it is two separated problems? Can it be that only cable connector causing error or it is a defect of new mother board?
