Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook ?

The light thats a lock with the letter a starts blinking and it wont boot up. how do i fix this

Answers :

The blinking light is just a status for the caps light. If the unit does not power on or boot , you may have
\015\012A) a low or bad battery, Take the battery out and try to power up just by plugging the unit into the outlet.
\015\012B) If that does not work, You may have a loose DC connector on the system board. Unplug the plug from the outlet, then slightly wiggle the connector at the back of the laptopwhere the adapter plugs in. If it moves , the connector is loose on the MLB.
\015\012The blue lights located above the keyboard indicate the following:
\015\012\015\012Turns on when the numeric keypad is enabled.
\015\012\015\012Turns on when the uppercase letter (caps lock) function is enabled.
\015\012\015\012Turns on when the scroll lock function is enabled.

\015\012If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
\015\012Thanks, Joe
