Having problems with your Dell Inspiron B130 Notebook ?

Dell Inspiron B130 will not turn on

\015 Hi. My Laptop will not turn on at all. No fans, no lights... nothing. I've tried with the battery in, out, plugged in, not plugged in. I've tried holding down the power button for 30 seconds at the advise of a computer repair tech we met, nothing. It's as dead as I've ever seen a computer. The only time I get anything out of it is when it's plugged in with the battery out and I put the battery in - the battery light comes on for a second. \015\012\015\012We have had it for a year and about 8 months and this is the first problem we've had. My husband and I had been on and off of it a few times, he had logged off and hibernated it (not just closed the scree, but hibernated then closed it). I went to turn it on a few hours later (it was plugged into the wall) and it would not turn on. I looked down at the power supply and the light that is usually a steady green was flashing green. It might have been my paranoid imagination, but I thought I smelled something like overheated electronics. \015\012\015\012I'm not confident enough to try taking it apart or "opening it up". Basically, if it requires a screwdriver, I don't think I'd like to try that! Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have 2 months worth of photos of my kids on here and those are not replacable.\015

Answers :

I had the same problem with my Dell Inspiron 1300 (same as B130), I did the troubleshooting myself, called Dell, and they were aware that there was a problem with some of these machines. -The problem was not caused by any Voltage Issues because I was plugged into a UPS.
\015\012Turns out that the problem was covered under the 2yrs Parts and Labor Warranty offered by Dell, and, they Dispatched a Technician to my house the next day to replace the Mainboard(Motherboard), he did the work in my house and I was up running within an hour after he arrived.
\015\012I wanted to add this Solution/Comment because many people are not aware of the warranty that they have on their equipment, and maybe this will help somebody who may think they have to buy another Laptop or just afraid they will lose their personal Data, and this is not the case(For me anyway).

\015\012Good Luck!!!!
My plug for the AC adaptor only works when I press it in. I am pretty sure it is the power jack on the PC. I don't know how to take it apart to that level to see if it can just be re soldered or not. I really would like to fix this myself so if anyone has any links to fixing the power jack on a Dell Inspiron B130 let me know.
\015\012Thanks.

Dell Inspiron B130 was black when turned on. Holding flashlight to screen, could see desktop and all icons. Was able to open programs, etc., while looking with flashlight. Replaced LCD Inverter listed for B130. It turned on fine, worked about 2 days, then started flickering, and went black again. Could this be power surge from motherboard, or backlight instead? By the LCD Inverter I purchased working for a couple of days, I felt like that was the problem, but something is knocking it out again.
