Dell Inspiron N5050 :: Won't Power On - No Sound Or Fan
Mar 24, 2013
My Dell Inspiron N5050 laptop was working fine. I got home and tried to power it on but got nothing so I figured it needed charged. I plugged the a/c adapter in and pressed the power button and still nothing? I tried removing the battery and trying to power it on with and without the a/c adapter. The only light it has lit is the charging light when its plugged in. Not even any sounds or the fan.
I have a Dell Inspiron N5050. The hard disc of the laptop makes little clicking sound, which can be heard only in silence or if you keep it close to your ear, but yeah it makes those sounds continuously. I bought it last year and I noticed this sound after like 4 months. I have the latest firmware update installed and also checked the hard disc for errors, but that isn't making any effect. It working completely fine. I use it moderately, some Ms office works and a sometimes games too, like about 6 hours a day. No hangs, No high temperature and nothing.
But since I've experienced trouble with the hard disc of a PC (which crashed within days after it started making sounds), i am a little tensed about it. Should i take it to a service center? will a hard disc format be useful. The sound is louder when the device is booting.
I am using windows 7 Home basic SP1 x64, the hard disc is ST 9500325AS 500GB, 2GB RAM.
Recently replaced the CMOS battery ourselves after getting the 5 beeps. Put everything back together but a couple of screws were loose and came out. Regardless the computer booted up fine and worked for a week. Yesterday it would not power on, at all. Unscrewed everything, opened it up, found some loose connections and tightened up, then replaced missing screws, seemed that they were tight and not spinning in place. Computer powered on fine. Next day, computer powers on again. Then, after a brief power down, it won't come on. AGAIN. Opened everything back up and saw the hard drive was loose so tightened that up via external screw. Put back together and made sure all connections were tight and re-screwed. Still will not power on.
I had a Dell inspiron 15R N5010 laptop and had been using it for more than 3 years. Before 1 year ago I was facing the starting problem in my laptop.when I power on of my laptop it showing Black screen only power light is on and also causing 7 beep sound with a few second intervals until when I power off the laptop.After 20 days later it is again running but sometimes it facing the same problem.But now I facing the same problem after 1 year later...
I am using Dell Insipron 15R 5520 Laptop Windows 7. Last few days I am getting a long beep sound after I pressed the power button and the Dell progress bar loads. And if I press power button, its turning off. Later I've pressed F8 key to login in Wiindows Normal Mode, its opening Windows. So every time i've to press F8 key to login. Sometimes the beep sound continues and not logging in normal mode or in Safe mode.
I thought it might be RAM issue and I checked 'System Settings' in Control Panel, it shows the usable RAM is 2.77GB of 8GB.
I went to Dell laptop service center near by my location and they said its keyboard problem, they charging too much amount to replace keyboard. but my keyboard is working properly.
I can't seem to log in to my laptop. I'm able to enter my password and then the welcome screen comes up whilst it loads but then the screen goes black and all I can see is the cursor. I'm still able to move the cursor so perhaps I am logged in but just unable to see my desktop?
I have upgraded my Win 7 operating system to Win 8.1. on my Dell Inspiron NS5050. All other components remain the same. The first deals with the USB Port. I insert a USB and it is not recognized. I open Device Manager and in Properties uninstall the the Driver and reboot. The USB now works correctly. Why does this keep happening? Tried to update Driver but comes back device is up to date. When USB fails I get message, "Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)".
Second Issue. Monitor won't start after any updates. After several times starting and restarting, I connected to an external monitor. External monitor starts and I can Log In. Computer functions normally with external monitor. Device Manager one time showed an error with the monitor. I deleted the driver and the original monitor worked correctly. Other times with a simple "Windows Defender" update monitor won't start. Using external monitor works every time. Additional monitor switching sometimes works other times not. Not sure what is wrong with the F1 key. Turns on and off monitor?
When booting my Dell Inspiron N5050 it goes to dell screen and ithe dell logo and loading line dont move at all for atleast 5 seconds then it goes to a black screen with a blinking white line then after that it pulls something up saying restart and insert proper boot media and it pull something saying something is using the same patterns then it says whole bunch of numbers. when doing a diagnostic it says theres one or more errors and theres a red x on my hardrive.
cant run launch diagnostic download. Today when I opened laptop from "hibernate" I got a blue screen that said "windows crash dump". My security is updated and running. Doesn't look like anything has happened. Who do I contact for this?
Dell Inspiron N5050 crashed and upon boot, I got this black screen. Upon seeing this, I did a diagnostics test. I did both a thorough and quick test and got this message showing that the hard drive didn't exist. I'm wondering if there's anything I can do to fix this or do I need to replace the hard drive?
Okay so my laptop keeps pasting rows of q's when I ever I go to type. You can also here a windows noise at the same time it is doing this. A couple months ago my laptop also had another problem. Where it would my the cursor by itself as I was typing. For example when if I was typing the word "about" the cursor would move and the word would be like "outab" like that moving the letters. It has stopped doing that but I don't know if it could be related to my current problem. I
If left unattended or not used for a period of several hours my Dell Inspiron N5050 automatically hibernates. How can I disable this function so the laptop remains on until I elect to hibernate or shut down?,
Additionally I receive a pop-up message about the screen resolution of my attached Dell LED monitor as being too low and urges me to upgrade the resolution to 1080. How do I upgrade?
This computer is 6 months old. It came with Windows 7, and I did install Windows 8 in October 2012. I have had problems ever since and neither Dell nor Microsoft can support. ANYWAY, until today, my DVD/CD player worked just fine. I used it every few days, but today when I went to use it, the door would not open. I notice the light next to the Open button is not lit up, but my device manager says it is in working order and the driver is updated.
I tried Ejecting from the device manager, but it does not work. When I ran the Dell Diagnostics program, it said that it was unable to run the diagnostics when there is media in the drive or the door is open. There is a game disc in the drive, and the game works, but I think it is downloaded onto the computer, so maybe does not use the disc during play?? How can the drive work and not the door? Is there anything I can do??
I have a dell Inspiron n5050. It was a hand down from my dad who hardly used, only used it for check his work schedule. Well it was working for years and then I was playing games like league of legend, sims etc. It never shut down till I maybe late 2014. I would turn it on, everything is all good, I can log in. But maybe 5-10 maybe more minutes of being on, it goes black or a message comes up saying "the instruction at referenced memory at could not be written " I don't know what is happening or what I done wrong. I can't get a new laptop or anything due to money issues at the moment.
I have a Dell Inspiron N5050 that unfortunately shuts down on its own or fails to respond when it goes to sleep mode. This doesn't happen every time it goes to sleep but it still happens quite frequently. When it shuts down on it's own, it displays a "Windows Did Not Shut Down Properly" message once it is turned back on. It very rarely displayed a Blue Screen of Death that mentioned something about drivers but this hasn't popped up in a while.
I've been in contact with a Dell representative for about a week now, having him call me every day to remote control my laptop and try something new. He updated all of the drivers he could find (I previously did this but he decided to go ahead and re-download them anyways), updated the BIOS (again, tried that already on my own), ran all sorts of diagnostic tools (the only one that he ran that I hadn't already run was the WinDbg X86 program), changed sleep settings (tried that on my own too), had me scan the entire computer for about 3 hours to check for hardware issues (It was one of the options under the F12 key when the computer first boots up and it came up clean), and yesterday he set up a new user account and had me use that for a day to see if the problems were linked to my profile (didn't even think about that one). It's actually caused the problem to occur more frequently to be quite honest. Today was especially bad, as the computer crashed 9 times and ended up deleting the newly created profile on its own in an attempt to repair itself.
My friend has a brand new Dell Inspiron N5050 that's having issues connecting to their Comcast Arris TG862G/CT router. The OS (Windows 7) 'see's' the WiFi network and when we try connecting to the WiFi network it prompts for the password - all as expected. But once its 'connected', although it has an IP the system cannot route anywhere. I cannot ping the gateway (the router), cannot perform nslookups, cannot HTTP to the router's IP etc.
WiFi for sure has been enabled via FN+F2 combination - tried toggling WiFi on & off - no change..Checked for updated drivers on the Dell website; re-downloaded the driver package from Dell - no change.Updated BIOS from A04 to A05 - no chnge..Checked for Windows updates system was already fully updated & patched - no change.I can successfully connect to my phone's WiFi HotSpot - device routes just fine.Other machines & devices can connect to the WiFi network without issue - seems unique to this N5050 machine.Ethernet connections on this N5050 work just fine
I'm not sure what else to do other than trying to revert to an older driver or checking the Intel site for drivers for the WiFi NIC. Comast say its a Windows update that broke it
I have russian system (Windows 7 SP1 with all updates on Inspiron N5050) and corresponding Dell software (on russian), but I'll try to describe options, like they be on english. You should to determine appropriate, corresponding to english analogues.
In the battery settings there is one checkbox, like "disable battery charge", with description, pointing to battery charge disabling until next Windows boot. So, if I check that checkbox, then...
Which EXACTLY system event(s) or situation(s) (the most comprehensive list) triggers the charger back to charge the battery, because "next Windows boot" is too unclear. For example, what about hibernate mode? Precisely, returning from it is not the Windows boot! In which moment of boot that trigger changes? Which system event(s) (application and/or hardware) generates initial command for it, what chain of devices and software calls involved (and can or can't be involved in different situations), how much time approximately consumes each chain link, and mention all affecting hardware settings and Windows settings.
My Inspiron N5050 no longer boots up, not even in safe mode or "last known good configuration." Decided to reinstall the Operating System, but need to know whether I have 32 bit or 64 bit.Have all the originbal documentation, including system specifications, but cannot tell whether my laptop is 32 bit or 64 bit.How to determine if you can't boot up the system?
At first it was win 7 and all the things worked fine. But after upgrading to win 8, wifi bulb is always lighting..i can on/off wifi from the key board.but light is not getting off. it always lighting from the boot time to shutting down..hep me..i updated all the drivers but nothing worked.
I recently purchased my laptop about 3 months ago and had no problem with it. But when I went to go turn it on one morning it started beeping 7 long beeps. I did some research and found out that it is a problem with my processor. How do I fix this problem? Or will I need to return it to the place I bought it? I have some important stuff on my hard drive that I wish to keep if possible.
