Re: Laptop Inspiron will not Turn on

Hi,

i have also such a problem.
If i push the power button, the 3 lights are on for something like 5 seconds, but nothing else turns on ... and then the lights go off again and the laptop is still off.

If i repeat this 1-4 times then he starts normally ... but that can't be normal Smiley Wink

EDIT: i have an inspiron 8600

Re: Laptop Inspiron will not Turn on

Hi,

I have similar problem and something more. Mine powers on with the adapter plugged in. Now, looking at my batt indicator it shows 93%. So I try to run from batt by unplugging the adapter and it shuts down instantly.

Only if I push the power button while keeping it depressed the laptop powers on completely with battery power. If I let go of the power button it shuts down instantly. This does not happen if I have the power adapter plugged in.

What can cause this problem?!

Thank you.
