Dell Vostro 1014 :: Dead Laptop - Refuses To Start
Apr 12, 2013
I have a Dell Vostro 1014 (or whatever it is).. And it refuses to start. I can charge it, but as soon as i press the start button, it stops charging. I don't hear any sounds from the pc as it would start either.
When I try to start my Inspiron XPS15 L502X DELL laptop by pressing the 'power on' button NOTHING happens.
I have tried the methods suggested on the forum site (remove battery-press power button for 40 secs-put battery back -start) but nothing happens. The laptop refuses to start. No lights, no message, just NOTHING.
Recently I installed trial version of Windows 7 64bits on my Vostro 1014 (which originally had 32 bits Windows 7). I choose clean installation, which erased recovery partition. My laptop came with no CD. I want to restore my laptop to original settings.
I have a 15" Vostro laptop, only 2 years old, that won't start. When I press the on button, the first (top) blue light to the left of the keyboard flashes quickly, but then nothing happens. Now there are three blue lights to the left of the power button that are blinking on and off.
Dell has announced three upcoming Vostro models- two 14.0" (1014, 1088) and a 15.6" (1015). The only difference I can see between the 1014 and 1088 is the 1088's ATI HD 4330 dedicated graphics card. All three look very similar and have 16:9 aspect ratio displays (1366x768)....
I wonder if the 1320 and 1520 will continue alongside these new models?
I'm having a wake up from sleep mode problem with my DELL VOSTRO 2521 since some months.My pc has two graphic cards: Intel 4000 and ATI AMD Radeon.I've tried many solutions but I do have this problem even today.When I shut the computer down with the sleep option or when I close the lid, sometimes the pc even refuses to sleep, when it sleeps it won't wake up unless I hard turn off it using the on/off button.
I tried the solutions proposed in the following link and many other ones:
1. Power management tab solutions: Allow this device to wake the computer... 2. Selective startup and services desabling 3. Use Powercfg command to check the issue 4. Control panel>Power options>change when computer sleeps>change advanced power settings> Sleep> ... > Multimedia
I see some people talk about the BIOS, to check its settings for sleep, to disable the BIOS setting "USB wake up" . I didn't try it cause i'm not sure about the result.
Also in Device Manager, to go to Keyboards, right click on the Keyboard device, click on properties, Click on the Power Management tab, and click the check box: "allow this device to wake the computer." Uncheck the box that say's "allow the computer to turn off this device to save power.
And to do the same as above for the "Mice and other pointing devices." But I can't do with my Keyboard, cause there is no Power Management tab on mine.
I was playing stalker a few days ago getting 50-70 FPS and now come today its so much lower at 20-30(not playable) and I tried CS:S, and COD4, and they all seen dramatic fall in FPS. I don't notice any artifacts but I just notice huge FPS hits. I also think my fan isn't running anymore but I am not sure. Does anyone one know what I should do now? Its out of warranty already.
For a couple of months, the laptop refuses to boot when turning it on. Screens stays completely black, never reaches the Dell-logo. The power-LED burns normally, CPU lights up for a few seconds, then dies out. I hear the fans starting and I think the hard disk starts as well.
The speakers start making an intermittent beeping sound, short beep every +- 3 seconds.
At this point, I have to interrupt the proces, and restart. Occasionally, the computer does start normally (around 10-30 times trying). In the beginning, this took only a few times trying, but it's getting worse.
When the computer comes back from sleep, it doesn't have any problems, only when it's (re)started, or coming from hibernation (deep sleep).
I bought this laptop on 16 December, and got on with transferring apps and files from my old desktop PC. All OK until last Sunday, when I left the laptop doing a Win 8.1 update overnight. Next morning, it was requesting a reboot, but then, after the initial HP logo, the screen goes blank for some minutes. Then the Win 8 screen appears with a message:
"LogonUI.exe - Application Error. The instruction at 0x00b1645a referenced memory at 0x00000008. The memory could not be written."
When I click on OK, the screen goes blank then flashes. The message re-appears, with the same result. I have tried to boot the machine from a CD and a USB pen drive, after changing the boot sequence in the BIOS/UEFI screen, but with the same result. What should I do?
my vostro 1500 was working fine, it decided to not boot up randomly. when i press the power button, the power led comes on, followed by the hdd led, and the power led stays on . The lcd does not power on. Tried booting using only the battery, same. the power adapter, same. took the notebook apart, reseated the processor, heatsink, ram, and all the connectors, still no luck. tried replacing the ram with my other laptop, same. the hdd works on my other laptop, so i dont know what the exact problem is. This occured once last time, but it booted up fine after 2-3 tries, now it just wont boot on. tried connecting an external monitor, still no life. anything else i could try? and i rule out the faulty 8600 chipset, as i never overclocked my laptop, and always used thermal paste every 6~ months. would really appreciate some help, as im typing this on an ancient hp pavilion ze series, which still works after all these years.
My Vostro 1700 just shut off last night and it seems dead to me, just checking that there is nothing else I can try to try and revive it.
basically all that happens now is the power light flickers for a few seconds and then the battery indicator and then it just goes off. The hard drives don't spin up and the screen doesn't come on......
I had firefox running with several tabs, then I went afk for a while and when I came back, the screen was blank. I shook the mouse, made sure it wasn't sleeping, tried alt-ctrl-del, but I got nothing. Then I did a manual restart by holding the power button then starting it up again.
I could hear the sound of the login screen coming up, I entered my password and it was able to login to Windows since I heard that Windows startup sound. I still couldn't see anything on the screen. I plugged in my external LCD to see if that could detect anything but it said "no signal detected".
Does anybody have a solution for this? Or is my laptop pretty much dead?
My specs are: T7100 1.8ghz 2gb ram 8400 gs vista home 32bit
The screen on my Dell Vostro 1400 just died on me. I can turn on the laptop and I hear Vista booting but the screen doesn't show up. The Dell Logo doesn't even show up when I turn on the laptop.
So to diagnose this problem, I connected my LCD monitor to the laptop. The screen appeared but tere is flickers of color everywhere and the screen resolution is terrible. I think the graphics card burned out. I was wondering if my diagnosis is correct?
Also if it is burned out, is it easy to swap graphic cards? I have a GEforce 8600 GS on my laptop. It is not connected with the motherboard.
HAve a 1330 with a slot loading DVD. The mobo is completly dead, the laptop won't even turn on (dell is allegedly sending me a replacement -- second on in two years).
Since the laptop won't even turn on, how on earth do I get a DVD out of the drive, WITHOUT taking the laptop apart? I know I can take the laptop apart and trip the mechanisim, but I just don't feel like taking the @#$@'n think apart.
My Inspiron e1705 laptop would not boot. Turns out it is a bad graphics card. Dell no longer has the graphics card in stock to ship a new one to me, so they are sending me a whole new laptop. The support guy said all of the components will be the same or better.
Anyone have any idea what I should expect to get? Will it be a new laptop or refurbished? I really liked the laptop I have now, and wish I did not have to replace it, but if I truly get something better, then I guess it is ok.
I guess I should have asked Dell this, but does anyone also know if my warranty (which has 1.5 years out of 4 left) will still be good on the new laptop?
I have a Latitude E6420, and i can't for the life of me get it to work. There is absolutely no life, and the battery and power lights don't light up with the ac adapter connected. I've tried taking out the battery and connecting the ac, no change. Won't work.
My N4050 laptop got dead and I called the customer care they said that the Hard disk, BIOS chip, Fan were the problem. My laptop is under warranty now. I bought this laptop thru ebay and I have the invoice copy from the seller. How can I proceed for the warranty service. I dont have the paisa pay id details of ebay.
I have an Acer Aspire 6920 and I'm trying to to do the erecovery, everytime I try to create the disks I get a message saying
"Error Code: 1014 Burning Error, Please insert a blank CD/DVD into the optical drive and press OK to continue"
I have tried many different blank discs but I always get the same error. I have also red the thread on this forum where someone had a similar problem and I tried running my computer in safe mode but the programme will not run..
I bought my XPS 1710 dell laptop about 2 yrs and some months ago at about ~$4, 150. About 3 weeks ago my GeForce go 7900 GTX died... I've never OC'd any device on my laptop and its been used in normal conditions..
Has anyone else had any problems with their GeForce go 7 series video cards?
did a clean install of Windows XP and this is what I get...
1. when my laptop boots up the bios screen comes up with a bunch of vertical lines... 2. when windows boots up there is a bunch of vertical lines... 3. simple vga mode works... no vertical lines... 4. when I try to install the drivers for the 7900 GTX I get a BSOD...
Warranty... So far the video card has been backordered twice... when I get called again and if its for the same reason I'm going to ask what the next course of action will be...
I doubt there are any remaing Geforce Go 7 series video cards...
I recently took my Compaq Presario C714NR laptop on a road trip, and one day some water spilled on the case without me realizing it, so that the case and laptop were wet when I got to my hotel room. The screen no longer illuminates - I can just barely see the proper windows and images on the screen if there is bright light in the room, but it's nearly invisible. I assume that either the backlight is dead or that a wire/connection to the backlight is loose or shorted.
Several months ago I had to replace the screen when the laptop was dropped and the screen broken (bought a new replace ment screen through eBay, replaced it myself), so the screen has had a bit of a hard life.
