Lights flash i have no idea of what happened, but on the face of the laptop, dell 9400, there is a button called ''media direct''. directly to the right, are 5 symbols. 2 of these symbols are an ''A'' inside of a lock, and a down arrow, also inside of what appears to be a lock. they both keep blinking when i attempt to turn on my dell 9400 laptop and the laptop wont work. in fact, after about 15 seconds the laptop dies.

Valiant 6481CPTD My battery will not charge, so I am going to get a new one, but I also have a problem using the laptop keyboard. I cannot get the symbol lock to turn off. I am not sure it has anything to do with the battery. I can plug the laptop in directly without the battery, but can't do much else because the symbol lock is on. When I attach a external keyboad it works fine. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks Richard Anderson Andycap
