Call up Dell and get a quote on repair. If you forgot to backup your files, read the Cnet Storage forum top posts about how to get the files out.
My laptop won't start up when i turn it on. I hit the power button, the fans starts up and then stops, the cdrom makes its typical startup noise, then the lights for num lock, caps lock, and something else come on and the light with the icon with the 9 in it starts blinking. That's all it does. The screen stays black, as though its not being powered at all.
I haven't been able to find anything on this specific computer and what info I have found, such as taking out the battery and AC power and resetting the computer don't seem to work. Another thread mentioned reseating the cables, but I have no idea how to do that.
Please help! I have finals this week and I really need my computer!
