My screen went black one day. A few months back I lent my laptop to a friend and got it back with a few grey lines showing on the bottom of the screen. I was able to use the laptop as normal after reinstalling the hard drive. Any suggestions would be appreciated as always All the best Obviously something is very wrong. Previously If I moved the cable it would eventually charge the battery, but now that has even stopped working. The battery charging circuit integrated into the motherboard and the battery connected directly to the motherboard.
The switch gets stuck in the off position after the laptop is turned off. He has summed up everything nicely. Turn the computer on and start tapping the f8 key before anything even shows on the screen. Do reply if you have any further questions. I did run a diagnostics in the Dell boot menu and it said there was no issues found. I sure hope this helps. After quick tests finished, select Hard drive and Thorough Test Mode.
If not, remove any optical drive, and last, the hard drive. Dell Studio 1537 Vista Integrated Webcam no longer working?? I managed to remove the tape covering all the wires from the power switch, but it was very hard to check if any had come loose. Report back any error code. I hope this is not the case as I have used this laptop very little. Although, I managed to go through that and managed to get to my desktop by using one of the Advanced Repair options restore previous session. I had no choice but to restart the system. So I took the advice from this website.
Nothing has worked so far. If the dvd drive is tray loading a tray pops out that you have to put the disc onto then there should be a small pinhole on the front of the drive, usually somewhere on the left or right side that you can slide the end of a paper clip into and pop. I took the hard drive out and connected it to a working computer. Could you please tell me what could be the reason? So at this point i don't know what's wrong. I can't get past the welcome screen so I don't know how to use them.
Gaming servers really cant infect your system like that. If the diagnostics find no problems, it might be time indeed to see what happens if you do the recovery to factory conditions. Do you know for sure from my previous post that windows is on the D drive? I tried hitting the F2 and F12 but it does nothing and it begins to beep after a while of hitting F2 or F12. It gives me the option to press F2 for Setup, or F12 for Boot Options. When I power up my laptop it goes to the dell logo which only gives me f2 and f12 options. Remove four screws securing the hard drive. The issue could be due to a loose connection of the camera above the lcd panel.
How do I get in to check problem. Is it easy to be replaced? Remove the hard drive assembly. Then, after reading your message, I also held the start key down for 15-20 secs, and, much to amazement, that cured it. Could it be the ribbon cable connection? I will cover the following disassembly steps: 1. Let me explain my problem first. Maybe the jack is broken and has to be replaced. I have my normal user profile that I use admin and a guest account.
I cleaned the fan, and re-assembled it. It won't look the same as what you are used to. . Anyway I took it to a tech in Manila and he said he couldnt fix it. Also when this happens there are tiny sparks and smoke coming from what i believe is a heatsink.
Thank you for your help in advance. Press the power on button and keep tapping F8 which should get you into safe mode. For last 2 years there was no problem and I dont think it is the coz of the problem. That seems like the d:-drive, doesn't it? When I place the harddrive back in the laptop, I can not even get the startup repair. My friend asked me to look at her laptop because it's not working. When you see the Dell logo, hit F12 to enter the boot menu. Keep turning the computer on and off until you see your computer booting into Advance Repair option.
