Dell :: LED Lights Come On For Seconds And Then Go Off

Nov 10, 2008

turning on then turning off? When I turn it on, the LED lights come on for seconds and then go off. I replaced the motherboard and the processor and its still the same problem. I also took out the RAM and had the same problem?

What else could be causing it? The graphics card?

HP/Compaq :: DV6000- Lights Turn On For 2 Seconds, And It Shuts Right Off

Nov 11, 2009

I have a HP DV6000 Laptop. Im aware of the problems these models have. But this one I have not yet heard of. When I attempt to power it on, the lights turn on for 2 seconds, and it shuts right off. Its not like the Video card issue everyone speaks of. I have extensive technical background, and I have tried taking everything out, and trying each part one by one. I have tried swapping the power button ribbons, I have tried removing the bios battery. I guess im wondering if anyone else has ever been able to figure out whats going wrong with this setup? copuld it be a lack of contact between heat sync and CPU? please give me whatever input you can. I would like to not have to spring for a new Mobo. I can solder, and I am thinking of trying to heat the soldering points with a heat gun maybe. I dont know if thats the problem tho. and also, when the AC adaptor is plugged in, the blue LED surrounding it is on.

I also tried all this (of course)

1. Remove battery.
2. Remove AC power.
3. Remove and reseat your RAM modules.
4. Replace your RAM modules.
5. Hold down your power button for 1 minute.
6. Replace your AC power (not battery) and turn on
remove the small bios cmos battery for 15min and then put it back in

HP ProBook 4510s :: Blue Light On Power On Button Lights For 6 Seconds And LED Blinks 13 Times

Oct 27, 2011

Laptop: Hp ProBook 4510s
 
When I turn my laptop on, the blue light on the power on button lights for 6 seconds, meanwhile the led near the power plug on right side rapidly blinks 13 times. Always exactly 13 times, so it must be some kind of error code. Then laptop shuts down. Nothing is heard, neither fan, neither hard disk.

HP Compaq Presario CQ61 Recovery :: Black Screen - Numlock And Capslock Lights Blinking Twice Every Couple Of Seconds

Jul 22, 2014

I have a problem with my Compaq Presario CQ61-325ED. It won't boot. What I see is a black/blank screen, with the numlock and capslock lights blinking twice every couple of seconds.
 
According to the blink codes, it seems the BIOS has been corrupted [URL] ....  Sadly, no adequate solution is given on that page.Win + B  or Fn + B at startup does nothing, pressing all the arrow keys gives me a continuous blinking pattern (edit: I can't seem to replicate this anymore...). I have also tried creating a bootable USB-stick with a BIOS update, but I don't think I have done it correctly, for it never gets activated (the light on the USB never turns on).

Also, removing/resetting the RAMs or just one of the RAMs does not work. Neither does removing/resetting the CMOS battery. How to successfully create a bootable USB-stick with BIOS update for CQ61-325ED?

Dell :: Blinking Lights On The M1730

Nov 2, 2008

I suffer from migraine that is triggered by changes in luminosity and blinking lights.

I am now reading the review by justGoIt of the M1730 on the Dell website: it talks about "bling bling lights". (This link points to the product, then you have to click on reviews.)

Does anybody know what lights are they?

can they be turned off?

are they bright?

where are they positioned?

or can they just be covered with a sticker?

Dell :: Lights On The M1710 Cover

Dec 5, 2007

anyone at all been able to light up the cover lights (just one of the colors even) for those who have done the 9400/E1705 to M1710 mods? I would really like to know how this can be done if there are some theories out there. Please refrain from saying how much you hate the lights or asking why I would care to do this :

Some methods I thought about trying:
USB port: 5V ok, will that work with the cover LEDs?
Fan port: I have heard this one might not work but can anyone confirm?

(I am talking about cutting off the connector that would originally go into the M1710 mobo and trying various things with the wires that happen to be color coded, 2 for each color of LED apparently.)

Dell :: XPS M1730 Back Lights??

May 5, 2009

i recently reinstalled windows on my Dell XPS M1730 but i have some problems. For some reason the lights on the lid of the case (the ones on top lol) dont come on anymore.

To get them on i have to open dell quickset and turn them off and then on again, then they will stay on, but after shutting down and booting back up they are still off. Anyone know what the problem could be?

Also another issue im having is that when i turn on the laptop my left speaker light is orange. I changed it in quickset to be blue but still during booting its orange and then once the laptop is fully booted it turns to blue. Anyone have any idea how to fix this?

Dell :: M4400 Freezes For 1 Second Every 10-20 Seconds

May 5, 2009

Because of various problems I was having with my M4400, I decided to reformat and reinstall Windows (Vista Ultimate SP1).

Immediately after reinstalling, it started to freeze for up to 1 second every 10 to 20 seconds, which is really annoying. However, it doesn't miss any keystrokes or mouse movements, as it catches up after the freeze. I'm wondering whether it's got something to do with some unrecognised devices that it has yet to find the drivers for:

PCI Serial Port
PCI Simple Communications Controller
SM Bus Controller

Dell M17x R3 :: Freezes Up Every Few Seconds

It freezes up every few seconds and resumes after another few seconds. This happens when I am gamming. I can move my cursor when it freezed, the audio also gets stuck.

I've tried all the Dell PC Diagnostics, and didnt find anything wrong. I fresh reinstalled my system, scaned virus and malwares, update my drivers, still problem remains. I think it's my video card might have phyiscal damage cause I move the huge ass laptop a lot, but I am not sure.

I had installed an new ssd 2 weeks ago in module 1, but I had no problem until yesterday.

Dell :: Disable XPS Lights On Screen Hinge?

Dec 13, 2009

I know it's kinda dumb but it's annoyingly bright when I've got the computer on at night and it's busy converting video or doing other work. It's also less power used.

It can't be done through software but has anyone physically unplugged them? I've not opened up the case yet so I don't know how practical that would be, thought I'd ask around first.

Dell :: SXPS16 Brighter Keyboard Lights?

Mar 9, 2010

I feel like the keyboard on my SXPS13 was MUCH brighter than the keyboard on my SXPS16.

I also had an icon pop up on the RHS of the screen that told me the keyboard light level (it would pop up when changing intensity 'off', '1', and '2').

I don't have an icon pop up on the 16, and the keyboard looks much dimmer overall.

Dell Studio 14z :: Won't Power On - No Flashing Lights

Feb 15, 2013

I have a studio 14z that has been sitting for approximately 5 - 6 months without being connected to a power adapter or turned on.  Needless to say, when I tried to power it up via the battery, there was nothing there.  Pushing the button on the bottom of the battery does not cause any lights to flash. 

This doesn't surprise me, but even if I plug it into it's AC adapter and take the battery out, it will not power on.  Nothing happens.  No lights (except on the power adapter) no fans spinning, nothing.  If I have the battery in place, the light that is supposed to indicate that the battery is charging does not turn on.  Basically it is "dead".  It worked fine before sitting dormant. 

Is it a lost cause?  I just had it apart to check cabling, etc. and can't see anything obvious.  Is there anyway to wake it up?  I know the power adapter works as it powered another laptop just fine.

Dell :: E1705, Freezing In Games After About 20 Seconds

Dec 28, 2009

I was playing a game of borderlands online and its started off running fine and then after about 20 seconds started lagging badly and then froze.

I assumed it was some kind of network connection problem considering i was playing the game fine a few days earlier. Well i forgot about it for a few days.

I just downloaded the battleswarm beta and was playing it and noticed it did the exact same thing, ran fine for about 20-30 seconds started lagging badly then just froze. I went back and tried borderlands in single player to confirm the problem and it also did the same thing.

Dell Inspiron N5010 :: Won't Turn On - No Beeps / Lights

Feb 7, 2013

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.

Dell XPS L421X :: Will Not Power Up - No Back Lights On Keyboard

Mar 30, 2013

This is the second time I have had this issue. I have already had the motherboard and power supply/cable replaced and it worked for awhile. Here is the issue.

- Occasionally after powering down, the next time I try to power up, the laptop does nothing but show the power light on. No Dell screen, no back lights on the keyboard, nothing else. I press and hold the power button down and after 5 seconds it shuts the light off.  I would then try it again with the same result. I let the battery completely drain; plug the power cord back in and after about 5 minutes of charging, try it again. This seemed to work until one day it did not. Then I had the motherboard and power supply replaced and all seemed well.  Now, 6-8 weeks later I have the same problem again.  A new L421X purchased in December 2012 with 512GB SSD running Windows 8 64 bit. I use this for business and am about to throw it out the window.  

Currently, I have tried the power up, drain power trick with no results. It is dead with all my business info on the drive.  I am about to dump Dell and switch to HP.  

Anything I can do short of a whole new machine?

Dell XPS M1530 :: Screen Lights Up White With No Display

Mar 7, 2013

I recently have had a problem with my Dell XPS M1530. The laptop crashed from what I presume was it overheating. When I switch it back on the screen lights up white with no display. I am able to use the laptop through an external display (pressing FN F8) however the quality is very poor, this is surprising as I used to use an external display frequently at a high quality and I am now unable to change the screen resolution in the display settings. I have also noticed that I can no longed put the laptop into 'sleep' mode. How the two errors could be related but both happened after the same crash.

I have tried to recconect the video cable but unfortunately it didn't work.

Any simple fix to this problem or if the GPU or screen needs to be replaced?

Dell XPS 17 :: Lights Flash As Normal But Screen Does Not Switch On At All

Apr 4, 2013

I currently have a dell xps 17 laptop. It will not switch on properly.

When I power it on, the lights flash on as normal, and some of the fans appear to start (although the side fan does not appear to work). The cd drive will open when I press the button, and the touch buttons light up on contact as normal.

However, the screen does not switch on at all. The laptop will stay on but nothing will happen. The side fan does not appear to be working either (i cant hear it, and that area gets VERY hot when plugged in).

I am currently on holiday and do not have an hdmi cable to test it on an external display (though I could maybe buy one).

I have tried fully charging and depleting the battery, I have tried removing and reinserting the coin cell battery and the memory.

Dell Inspiron N5010 :: Won't Stay On For Longer Than 30 Seconds

Jan 30, 2013

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?

Dell Inspiron N5010 :: Shuts Off While Booting In 10-15 Seconds

Jun 10, 2012

Dell inspiron N5010 laptop. When ever I carry my laptop to some place lets say from home to college it stops booting, when I switch on my laptop it starts but after 10-15 seconds it shuts off, also when I try to keep the system in bios it again shuts off within 10-15 seconds.

Twist in the problem is that if I keep my laptop idle for 20-30 minutes it starts working fine (I never remove battery or ram just left my laptop idle)

Another thing is i face this problem only when laptop is carried by me in my back pack or u can say when laptop is subjected to movement.

I noticed this pattern seriously. For past 15 days I didn't displaced my laptop from my desk and it work like any normal laptop but today when I took it to my friends place and there when I tried to boot it it starts and shuts off within 15 seconds while booting so I did the same left it idle without even removing ram or battery or charger for 10 -15 minutes and then it starts working fine.

Why is this happening is there is a problem i hardware or just some loose connection.
