Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

Blank Screen and blinking light

\015 When I try to turn on my Dell Inspiron 1501, it seems to be on, but does not boot up, has a black screen and a blinking light that looks like a lock with the letter "A" in it. I don't know what this light represents, and a perusal of the manual doesn't offer hints. Can you help?\015

Answers :

I was using my laptop when it suddenly froze. Tried ctl/alt/del but\015\012nothing happened. So I powered down. When I tried to power it back\015\012up, the power light comes on, the lock lights blink twice, the fan\015\012powers up then down, and the dvd drive clicks on and off. Then\015\012nothing--black screen. My laptop battery is nearly dead, so I am\015\012always plugged in.\015\012
\015\012This seems like a common thing with the Inspirons, and here are some of the suggestions I tried:\015\012
\015\012I removed all power sources, held down power button for 30 sec to reset system and tried to boot up again--same issue\015\012
I unplugged the screen closed sensor, thinking the unit might be\015\012thinking it was asleep (lid closed), because that what it acts like.\015\012 No luck.\015\012
\015\012Removed memory--and reset--nothing.\015\012
\015\012Replaced button battery on motherboard, now same problem.

\015\012I hope that your system is still under warrenty with Dell. if not I recommend that you get a new battery. You can go to pricewatch.com there you can get this battery for a low cost. Please let me know which of these is best for you.
