Dell Inspiron 1564 does not turn on

Jump to solution

Hello,

Laptop: Dell Inspiron 1564

OS: WIndows 7 Home

Problem: Does not turn on.

Cause: Was working fine until last night when I shut it down, did not turn on when I tried to turn it on later in the morning. No known cause.

Details:

My laptop does not turn on in anyway - with charger put on or without charger.

It was working fine when I shut it down the other night but when I tried to turn it on in the morning, nothing happened. When I press the power-on button, just battery light (of the 3 lights on laptop) glows for a while and then it goes off as well. Other than that, nothing happens at all. I have tried taking the battery out and putting it in, plugging ang unplugging AC - nothing works.

I left the laptop unattended whole day and when came back, I tried to turn it on and the battery and power lights both glowed this time and continued glowing but screen was blank and no sound nothing happened for a few minutes and then I powered it off. Tried to turn on again, nothing happened, back to old problem as stated earlier i.e. only the battery light glows for a while and then goes off.

Would appreciate if someone can guide on the cause of the problem and how to resolve this.

Regards,

Ali

Hello Ali,

I had the same problem about a fortnight ago. Just out of the blue, my laptop would just not turn on. Same model (Dell Inspiron 1564, OS - Win 7).The charge light would go on and then off as soon as you plug in the adapter. No affect with or without the battery plugged in. Then, after a few days, by the time I sent it to get it checked by someone, it just started working by itself - as if nothing had happened.

 

I'm having the same problem now. The laptop just will not turn on, even though I shut it off last night. I'm worried that I will have to wait another 4-5 days before it will turn on, because, I need to use the laptop for work tomorrow. Can anyone help out as to why this is happening and how to solve this problem? I'm getting the feeling that this is an inherent problem with this particular Dell model.

 

Thank you,

 

Akil.

First--If you are still under warranty, contact Support right away. Test the battery by removing the battery and  using the adapter alone. If it works that way, the battery needs replacement. Batteries are usually warrantied for the first year. If it doesn't work, it could be the adapter or the motherboard. Contact Support.

Hi Mary,

 

Thanks - I did contact support. It turns out that there was some static charge left over, and preventing the laptop from starting up. I was advised to disconnect the batteries, and disconnecting the adapter and then draining the charge by pressing the "On" button for about a minute to 2 minutes. Discharge the adapter by connecting the bottom two pins on the adapter box connection with a metallic screw-driver or knife. Upon reconnecting the adapter - the laptop amazingly came to life.

 

Akil.

  1. Disconnect your AC adapter
  2. Remove the battery
  3. Push the power "On" button for at least 20 seconds..

Now put the battery back in, attach AC power adapter and restart the notebook.
