I recently got a weird problem with my old Inspiron 15R SE 7520.
Pressing the power button it gets to the screen with the Dell logo (after a second of black screen) and remains stuck there. By turning it continuously off and on for about ten times, a certain point it can start normally.
This is something new since a couple of weeks. I didn't do any recent changes. Since about a year the BIOS was informing me that the coin battery was uncharged, so I guessed this was the problem. So I change it, but the problem is still there.
So I supposed that could be a problem with the power adaptor, so I change it, but the problem is still there.
Other info are:
- the laptop battery is dead since a very long time. I thought this could be a reason, but I removed it and nothing changed.
- I have a password in the BIOS (I think this should not influence the issue... but you never know...)
- I never updated my BIOS
Is there someone having some suggestion?
Make sure these are up to date
If you could give some feedback that would be great thanks!
It used to work for a while. I restart it several time and it was working fine.
When I start the system this morning, the problem appeared again. I suppose it has to do with the fact of being without power for long time.
Another info is that I updated all the driver mentioned before, excluding the BIOS. Since my battery is gone, the software doesn't allow me to install. I also used the command "/forceit" with no result.
