Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 6000 Notebook ?

No Power We've had an Inspiron 6000 for 4 years, no issues until tonight. We went to turn it on and it never powers up. It will start to but then shut down after about 20 seconds. During the short period of time when the computer is attempting to power up, the caps lock indicator flashes. This happens both when plugged in and when off the charger. I tried switching batteries too and same problem.

Hi,
\015\012
\015\012This can be caused by several problems.
\015\012
\015\0121st, It could be locked in a standby or hibenate loop.
\015\012
\015\012to test and repair this problem all you need to do is unplug it, remove the battery and then hold the power button for 30 seconds. Then re-insert the battery plug in the AC and try powering it up.
\015\012
\015\012If that doesn't work the next most likely given the age is either a failed AC adapter or broken power jack. once again unplug the AC and remove the battery. this time use a pen or small file to test the pin in the center, if it has more than 1/2mm of give it's likely broken. This can be repaired for $100-$200. If it's still firmly in place it's either the AC adapter or Motherboard which has failed.
\015\012
\015\012Most computer stores can test and replace the AC adapter if it has failed, if it's the motherboard on a 4 year old laptop it's likely not worth repairing, as you can purchase new laptops for under $600

Yeah such problems have only two reasons behind it. Firstly,any power module of its motherboard is having problems due to heat sinking. secondly, its RAM has some faults. Since RAM is not so costly so i recommend you to replace it with newer one and check again. If problems still persists then only go for motherboard repair or analysis... rate this solution if it is really helpful to you
