Having problems with your Dell Vostro 1000 Mobile AMD Sempron Processor 3500+ 60GB/1000MB PC Notebook ?

Dell Vostro 1000 shut down and won't turn back on

\015 My daughter was using the laptop plugged in to AC adapter when it just shut off and won't turn back on. Unplugged it from adapter, removed battery, reinstalled battery, and plugged it back in to AC but nothing. No lights, nothing happening when power button pushed. The AC acapter has a green light on it when plugged in to the wall outlet, but it goes off immediately as it is plugged in to the laptop. This happens with and without the battery in the laptop.\015\012\015\012Personnally I thing it is a bad battery. It is the original one hour battery and the computer is about 2 to 2 1/2 years old. I've been meaning to get a 2 to 3 hour battery anyway, but I don't want to waste my money if the comuter is shot.\015

Answers :

Nope, it is your dc power regulator board. you will note this happens if the battery is in or out of the laptop. that is the key test. some regulators are on the main board and some are seperate for this reason. I think the vostro though is on the main board. A little board re-work will resolve this issue after replacing some components, but this is way beyond a home user's ability.. trust me on this. Sorry for the bad news. Thanks!

No Power I have a Dell Inspiron 600m. I was sitting and using my laptop fine last night. I closed it and went to stand up to put it back on my desk and stepped on the power cord that was still plugged into my computer. At that second my computer shut off and I can't get it to turn back on. When I try to plug my ac adapter back into it, the green light turns off as soon as it's plugged into my computer.
