Dell Laptop Wont Turn On


I have an old dell inspiron 7000 that just stopped turning on a while back. When i plug the adapter into the wall (not connected to the computer) the green light comes on and everything seems fine. However, as soon as i plug it into the computer the green light goes out and begins to blink every few seconds. Of course the computer wont charge or turn on or anything. I called dell and they just said it was a motherboard problem which seems to be too programed of an answer. I was kinda hoping that its just the adapter and i can just go get another one. Anyone have any thoughts on this? Thanks for any help on this one.

Dell Laptop Backlight Turn Off When Unplugged

Why does my dell laptop backlight turn off when unplugged? Works fine on windows boot unplugged? Dell inspiron 6400, back-light turns off on battery, not just dims, turns off! I installed a new screen and inverter, and a new battery. I'm not sure how it was before the new screen because the old screen was damaged and my wife just hooked up an external monitor to use it. Tried windows 7 first, but reverted to xp with the same problem.computer boots on battery fine, and backlight is on through the boot process until the windows desktop or logon shows, then it turns off. Plug it in, and it's back on! No other problems. I've checked all the power saving features, even in the bios. Can't seem to nail this one down, not even with a bunch of google searches!

Hp Laptop Wont Turn On

When the power button is pressed the computer begins to go through the startup, but fails to power up. Even when pressing f11, f8, or the space bar the computer cannot be forced to display an error or anything for that matter. The computer just cycles through trying to power on to powering off repeatably until it goes to sleep. Any ideas?

Toshiba Laptop Will Not Turn On

My toshiba laptop will not turn on? It stopped working on friday morning, i fixed it using these tips:

1. Remove the battery from the laptop (unplug it from the ac prior to removing it)

2. Plug the ac back in (leaving the battery out)

3. Gently move the connector from the ac adapter that is in the laptop gently from side to side, and then in circles. Very gently and watch your lights on your laptop; see if they blink or show any sign of life. 1. Remove the battery from the laptop (unplug it from the ac prior to removing it)

Laptop Monitor Wont Turn On

I've got a major problem with my laptop (less then a year old). It was running fine up till a month ago. As i launched a game, the screen turned off. I waited for a few minutes but it didn't come back on. I restarted it, and launched the game again, but the screen turned off before the loading was complete. I concluded that it was the game, so i uninstalled it. Rebooted, and all was fine for about 20 minutes, then the monitor turned off again. I suspected that there was a virus, so i formatted my hdd, installed just the basic programs and rebooted, but this time, the monitor didn't turn on at all. From the sounds i can hear, i seems that the computer itself keeps running, it's just the monitor that is 'stuffed'. I've tried hooking it up to my tv and desktop monitor, both remained blank. The laptop in question is a lg lw40 express. I've spent over an hour searching the forums but no one seems to have quite the same problem. Any help is appericiated.

Dell Printer 960 Won't Turn On After Power Outage

After a power outage my dell printer 960 won't turn on. I have surge protector and my computer still works!?

Answer:- it is completely possible that the surge protector is bad. Try unplugging the printer for about 45 minutes first so that any internal power/surge protection electronics can reset if designed with any, then plug your printer into a known working wall outlet and see what happens. If it works, then the printer either reset itself or the surge protector is bad. If it doesn't work, then you could have blown a fuse within the printer, or fried the electronics. It would then need to be serviced by a technician or replaced. Like the other answerer said, surge protectors don't always work.

Which Laptop Is Better Hp Or Dell ?

Which laptop is better dell or hp?

Answer:- they both suck- hp consistently ranks last in customer satisfaction and laptop reliability, and dell just got in big trouble over knowingly selling faulty computers. Between the two, i'd say dell is better- they're at least a bit more reliable and i can't stand hps trackpads. Hp has basically turned to selling cheap apple knockoffs. If you can afford it, you're better off getting a mac and installing windows on it. Or get an asus or a toshiba.

No Power To Dell Laptop

My daughter has a dell inspiron 2600 laptop. She used it and everything was fine, but she let it set for a couple of weeks and when she went to use it again, there was no power. The power cord is plugged in, but no lights and nothing happens when you push the power button. I put a different battery and power cord on, that i know is good and still nothing happens. It is just as if the battery is dead and it is not hooked up to ac at all. What could have caused this problem, and what can be done about it?

Dell Laptop Crashing

Anyways, here's the problem. My sister has a laptop that she uses for college, she's not exactly tech savvy, so she waited until she got home to tell me that she has a problem. I'm not sure how or when it started, only that it didn't do this when she first bought it. What happens is at various random times when not plugged in, the comp shuts down. No blue screen, nothing like that. When you reboot there's no *did not shut down properly*, it just loads up like normal. Now, this doesn't necessarily happen after long use, it doesn't even have to be "hot" for this to happen. Now, none of this happens when it is plugged in, but similarly, sometimes when it is plugged in, and you unplug it, it will shutdown and be unable to turn back on until you plug it back in. Any clue? Is this just a faulty battery?

New Dell Laptop Problems

So i bought a dell inspiron 1545 on black friday last year and it is having some problems already. It isn't even a year old :/ but it has a one year warranty so that's good?

The problems are:

- Sometimes, i can hear the bottom 'crackling'
- The dvd drive doesn't work very well
- It restarts itself
- Occasionally, it will say (a file name) corrupted when i start it up
- The flash slows things down a lot
- It will freeze
- The mouse pad's left side button is bent down?
- This one is hard to explain but it acts like i am pressing the 'ctrl' button when i am not. For example, when you press crtl+t it opens a new tab, so sometimes when i am typing a letter 't', it will open a new tab or when i am typing an 's' it opens the save thing and etc. I am probably going to call the dell support thing tomorrow morning. Do they give you money back, a new laptop, or something else if it is in fact not working properly? And also, when do you think is wrong with it?

Dell, Toshiba, Or Hp Laptop?

I'm in the market for a laptop (my first) to last me at least 5 years with no problems or need for repair. I'm interested in purchasing either a dell, toshiba, or an hp (originally i wanted a macbook, but i've heard that that's not the best choice for a biology major-the compatible software is not as good?), But i don't know which one is best. I'm willing to pay up to $1200 as long as it has the following specifications:

-Built-in webcam
-Long-lasting battery (at least 5 hours)
-Best processor (fast with good performance)
-4gb memory
-At least 16" screen
-It must be quiet
-Must last me at least 5 years
-Dvd/cd drive (no blu-ray necessary)

Also, i'm not a big gamer (i like sims and nancy drew games, but other than that i really am not big into computer games). Please let me know if this request is even possible or if i need to lower my expectations! But please help me figure out which laptop to purchase!
