Dell Inspiron N5110 :: Power Button Continues To Glow Even When Shutdown Option Is Selected
Feb 5, 2013
System Will not Wake Up from Sleep Mode / power button continues to glow even when shutdown option is selected Motherboard failure due to any internal short circuit could be the reason of this technical glitch...
Am using Delll N4050 more than a year, now am facing some shutdown issues.
Computer details: My Laptop shipped with ubundu and I installed windows 7 home premium.
Processor: Intel core i3-2350M CPU @ 2.30 GHz
Problem: For past one year it was working fine but now am facing shutdown issues. When I shutdown my laptop it's not shutting properly (i.e.) power led keeps glowing and fan keeps running until i long press power button to shut it down. But restart works fine. Same problem occurs when I put in sleep mode and hibernate mode.
I am using dell inspirion n5010 i3. And i am getting problem with its touchpad . Problem is that while using the laptop, touchpad suddenly stops working but right click option continues to work but at the same time usb mouse continues to work and after pressing ctrl+alt+del and doing logout it starts working.
I get 7 beeps after I click the power button. my options but I understand this might mean a processor issue? I am fairly handy so is this something I could do myself if I purchase parts? My laptop is NOT under warranty.
The model is a HP Pavilion 15-n278sa. My laptop shuts down randomly when it is clearly completely cool, when it has shutdown, the power button will not respond, and the laptop will flash on, and shutdown immediately if it is moved/picked up/tilted, while it is off.The laptop is increasingly getting more unstable and I'm unable to use it...
My laptop is Dell N5110 (Inspiron 15R), it suddenly shutdown when I try to type on the keyboard. Then I tried more and more to open it again, but it didn't work. After a while, I opened it, and when I tried to write something again, it suddenly shutdown, and so on.
I can't turn off my laptop. Widnows shuts down, the hard drive LED doesn't blink, just the power LED and I can hear the fan from time to time and it just hangs there. So, all I can do is hold the power button and force it to shut down. Even more weird is the fact that I can restart the computer. This started about a month ago and I've tried everything I could think of... to no avail.Here's my system info:
Computer Type ACPI x64-based PC (Mobile) Operating System Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate OS Service Pack Service Pack 1
CPU Type Mobile DualCore Intel Core i3-2330M, 2200 MHz (22 x 100) Motherboard Name Dell Inspiron N5110
Motherboard Chipset Intel Cougar Point HM67, Intel Sandy Bridge System Memory 8098 MB (DDR3-1333 DDR3 SDRAM)
Video Adapter Intel(R) HD Graphics 3000 (2108 MB) Video Adapter NVIDIA GeForce GT 525M (1048384 KB)
Here's what I did:
1) I suspected a Windows update, so I tried to restore to a previous point. 2) Didn't want to reinstall Windows, so I tried to boot from the Windows CD and shut it down from there. 3) I tried to let it hang after the shutdown. This brought up a BSOD two times. It was DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE. 4) Then I started suspecting the BIOS. Updated to A13 (the latest version for my model) 5) Resetting the BIOS to default settings. 6) Updated all drivers to the latest. 7) Restored the MBR. (Windows repair said that it couldn't find my Windows installation, even though I was able to boot) 8) Tried to shut down without the battery. 9) Tried to shut down without the power adapter. 10) Ran all Dell support center tests. The short ones, though. No problems were found.
My laptop is still under warranty, so I won't open it, but I'd like to know that I have tried everything before I contact the support center.My job is on my laptop. I don't have a PC, so if I take it to support, I won't be able to work.
I have bought my new laptop 3 months ago.My laptop was running fine and I happily played counter strike on it.After some days while listening songs. My laptops speakers stops working than I go to the dell warranty claim centre they took my pc and change the speaker of my laptop and give me back after one week but after getting my pc back I am trying to play the counter strike game but when I run the counter strike game my laptop shutdown immediately. My laptop is dell core i5 n5110 with 4 gb ram and 1 gb nvidia graphics card.
Using Windows 7 on an Inspiron N5110. Get a black screen when system loads indicating a previous incorrect shutdown, with the options to load Safe or Normal. But the system will not accept any of these options, as a matter of act, the system will not accept anything.
My Sleep button stopped recently. I installed TuneUp Utilities 2013. will this be a problem? There are three buttons on the top right of the key board. First one is working fine but the remaining two are not functioning. when I press them, button is glowing in white for a couple of seconds and nothing happening.
I generally use my lappy to listen to music and while it plays, I used to put the monitor off to save power. But suddenly it stopped working. Is this a hardware problem or something else? I tried restoring the power options but didn't solve the issue.
And my laptop is taking so much (around 15 minutes) for re-booting. Of course I have installed many programs. I make sure to remove all the un-necessary start up programs. I have a 8 GB RAM. But when compared to other laptops, it is taking really huge time to start!
How do I go about getting a new touchpad from Dell on an in-warranty laptop? My left-click button incessantly sticks. It is not a software issue, and I am well within my warranty. I have already done the software trouble-shooting. It is a hardware issue and I'm relatively certain I need a new touchpad.
I woke up this morning and tried to turn en my laptop but nothing happened, I checked the AC adapter and it was working well, same as the batery, since I was using it last night with no problems. After a bit of research I managed to do an electrostatic discharge unplugging everything attached to my laptop, removing the AC adapter and the battery, and pressing the power button for about a minute, past that minute I plugged the AC adapter and pressed the power button, it turned on for about a second, it was pretty much a blink. Then everything was the same. I tried discharging again, several times, without success.
My laptop model is Inspiron N5110, I bought it about 3 years ago.
Last week, there has been some power fluctuations and immediately the infamous message saying "AC power adapter cannot be determined" appeared, and the system is very slow right now even when the battery isn't inserted.
I tried uninstalling & reinstalling the "Microsoft ACPI Complaint Control Method Battery" and it did't work either.
What is strange is that one minute I can charge the battery with the same AC adapter & the system operates just fine, the next this infuriating message appears & hell breaks loose.
I've had my Dell Insprion N5110 for about a year now with little issue, but lately this really annoying problem has arose. Every time I just close my laptop (to put it in sleep mode, essentially) and then open it back up... it wont turn on. The power bottom stays completely lit up (not blinking, like it would in sleep/hibernation mode) but no matter what I press, it wont turn on. I end up having to completely shut it down every time. i did update for BOIS and VGA nothing happen
I have Laptop " DELL Inspiron N5110", I am facing issue, it does not power up. I have to discharge its Static Charge while removing its Power Battery and Pressing its Power Button for 10 to 20 Seconds then Plug in Power Battery and turn Laptop ON.
I have sent this laptop to workshop for a permanent solution but could not find solution.
My daughter was using her laptop (19 months old Inspiron 15R N5010) a couple days ago when all of a sudden, all but the bottom of her screen went black, the bottom was all garbled. Then a weird shrieking noise came out of the laptop and everything powered off (it was on battery). So she plugs in the ac power cord, thinking her battery was dead. Computer started to power on, fans & hard-drive spinning, but no screen at all, all black. After a couple minutes, the same weird shrieking sound and everything off again, but that time, a burnt smell came out of the fan exhaust.
Now, with our without ac power, the only thing that "works" on the laptop is the power button LED, everything else is silent. No fan, no hard-drive, no dvd player spinning.It's out of warranty, unfortunately, and hse needs it for class. I've fixed laptop before, actually on 2 occasions I replaced motherboards on other brand laptops without any issues... but while looking at the inside of the N5010, there are 2 boards inside, the mother board, and the power/ac/wan board...
My laptop, an Inspiron 15R, will not turn on. When I press power button, it beeps 3 times. Owner manuel says 3 beep codes mean possible system board failure - chipset error. As luck would have it my warranty went out in December. Does this mean the hard drive on my computer has crashed?
I have a Inspiron n5110 laptop and for about a month it had a problem. It works fine (battery charges as usual) until a power drop (even for a second) occurs. When power comes back battery does not start to charge. It gives a error message "AC power adapter type cannot be determined"...
I suspected the fault may be with the power charger/adapter and searched for new one in the store. But there I came to know compatible adapter for my 15R laptop is a 90W adapter. [URL] ....
And I got a 130W adapter when buying this laptop. So I thought they must have switched it by accident and it didn't bother me since it worked fine until now. But according to store, the adapter I'm using now does NOT supposed to be compatible with N5110
This is what I have now : [URL] ....
I have a working 90W dell adapter from my friend and i tried it to my laptop. It also gives the same error as above except my laptop identifies it as a 90w adapter and asks for a 130W adapter instead(When my adapter is plugged-in it doesn't even identify it as 130W as you can see from the image).
I bought an Inspiron 15 3542 laptop and it works fine; the Power button has an LED which never lights up; also, the system LED at the right bottom (front of the laptop), does not light up all the time. It only lights up in white when I start the laptop from sleep or shutdown. Is this a design flaw or is something wrong with the laptop? I have never seen the Power button LED light up, which is annoying since the keyboard area is always dark without any lights; I have a HP Pavilion which has many blue LEDs on the surface and front of the laptop, so I find it weird not to have any lights on the Dell.
