Can Anyone Tell Me What Is Wrong With My Dell Inspiron 1150? Is It Dead?

I was careful not to hold the soldering iron on to long so as not to heat up any surrounding parts. So I will use my laptop with out battery and keep the AC connected as a desktop!! Of course, if you already own a hot-air rework station then you might be able to pull it off, I don't know. Also if I do manage to find a new Harddisk what software do I need to load up and in what order. http://linux4newbie.com/can-anyone/can-anyone-see-anything-wrong-with-this-hjt-file.html

You should find the top of the case will separate from the computer. However, when power adapter is plug in, the power LED & the Battery Led is blinking non-stop & can't be switch on. Try this several times if necessary. From what I can tell this is part of the LCD display assembly. https://www.daniweb.com/hardware-and-software/hardware/threads/36245/dell-inspiron-1150-will-not-start

Reynolds has apparently changed his name to Turd Ferguson. Look for the printed circuit board that has the switches for the mouse left and right click which sit just under the blue buttons.

Have to do some testing if I ever feel like taking a working laptop apart that is. Here's what I did based on my x60 battery maintenance procedure.

I didnt have a FL1 chip so i removed FL1 and cleaned and reapplied new solder but problem still there.

Completely dead. For me this worked out ok as the laptop is a beat around out in my dirty dusty shop anyways. I plugged it into AC power, and lo and behold it worked. Advice, contact The IT Guy at [email protected] i may be blunt, but i know what im talkin about.

  • cuz then ur just fookt =) Have a nice day =) For more "no shit" I.T.
  • When I connected the laptop up to AC power the front power indicator came on and only the fan started, nothing else happens, no screen, no POST, no beeps, no BIOS,
  • The battery appeared very flat, and I'm wondering whether when one of these batteries gets that flat, it maybe won't charge properly, unless given a couple of days off to recover.

Lesson learned. http://www.overclockers.com/forums/showthread.php/592534-Dell-Inspiron-1150-Power-Problem I reseated the RAM, no good, so I removed the battery and tried with just the AC power, same results. Did I mess up the soldering job, or does the problem lie elsewhere (e.g. at the end the problem was with the core that cover the AC connector on main board, it was in short, that cause that never power up.ReplyDeleteMayo HardwareWed Apr 20, 08:29:00

So you have either a bad CMOS battery or CMOS Chip. To be sure it wasn't the jack i hardwired a dell pa-10 to the motherbrd.

When it starts to fail your computer will not turn on. http://linux4newbie.com/can-anyone/can-anyone-tell-me-whats-wrong.html At any rate, I've ordered a new battery from Dell.

like there is a short in the board in that area. I had exactly the same problem as described. Strong magnetic fields can corrupt data or damage/magnetize some hardware to the point of making it unusable.

If you're out of warranty, then that stinks-- you'd want to contact Dell and purchase some replacement parts to fix your unit. -1 Discussion Starter hawk4561 11 Years Ago Thanks for

Route it where it won't touch anything else and use hot glue to hold it in place and cover it up. I did not buy a new part. The strange thing is that today I brought it into work with a view to getting the Desktop Support team to look at it. I hate those latptops with those data pin connections on them.

You get no beeps because the code to tell it to beep did not load. Such invisible cracks can be easily caused by mishandling during manufacture of the rare-earth magnets or assembly of the laptop lid. replacing the memory and the cpu helps nothing, athough the iagnostic mode (holding FN+power on) shows one led blinking and two on, which decodes as CPU problem (seen such a decoding You will not get a P.O.S.T.

The 1150 still worked with the battery until it died. Once the contact was interrupted everything worked perfectly.

I am thinking it has a short somewhere on the board but not sure. It seems like you're going through a lot of work and risk. I replaced mine and I am using my Dell 1100 to send this message. Hope all this makes sense - Thanks in advance for any help - don't know when I will be able to check for any feedback as I am relying on the

It usually becomes cracked on one side from not being able to carry the current. Melvin | January 22, 2007 4:26 PM | Reply this started happening to me like 1 week ago. I always kept battery in while mostly having laptop plugged in when I did use it. thanksReplyDeleteThe GeeksterWed Jan 04, 08:26:00 PM ESTHi.

Now while I had the laptop apart...I cleaned everything and I made sure and certain I was grounded good before I touched anything. Let it get low on power for once. I cleaned the heatsink and processor and put Arctic Silver on it and the GPU heatsink. The charger does have a green light that is illuminated, but not very bright.
