Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook ?

The ac adapter works and green light comes on when i plug into a socket but when i connect to laptop the green light goes out and machine will not power up machine will not power up from battery - battery is fully charged


Answers :

Pulll outthe battery and unplug the power adapter hold down the enter key for 60 seconds then install power cord and try to power up the computer without the battery, if it powers up you have a a battery problem, if it won't power up your battery power supply is bad, but needs to be tested. I have found that Interstate Battery company will test the battery and power supply for free, and they are happy to rebuild the battery if it needs it.

My eee pc 4G surf won't turn on. It started having problems when the power cord was bumped - causing it to immediately shut down. Then it just stopped booting all together. I replaced the power cord and it will begin booting when I initially plug it in and hit the power button, but it goes black before it fully starts. At that point the battery light (orange), the power light and the wireless light begin going off and coming back at regular intervals like it's trying to boot but fails before

The notebook will not boot up. When the button is pressed, it lights up for about 10 seconds and then goes off. There is a faint hum which sounds like the fan starting up but that also stops when the light goes off. The screen stays blank. The notebook is plugged in to the mains and the green battery light is on showing that the battery is fully charged. At a guess it seems like the BIOS is not kicking in.

I have a Toshiba 1405-s171 serial # 72154211P. The green power light would not go on, but the laptop would still function properly. Then I started to get a message something to the effect that the battery was running low---even when the battery was not installed. So I thought it might be the A/C power adapter and got a new one. The laptop functioned awhile and then got the same battery low-shutting down message. Now when plugged in and turned on there are no lights. When turned on the DVD
