Dell XPS M1530 Problem

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My brother's laptop is not booting.

It had this problem before, but I was away at school so I was unable to fix it. So they sent it away to get fixed, but when it got there they said it worked fine, no problems. We assume the bumping around from shipping may have fixed it, lose connector to screen maybe.

This is what happens....

I press the power button, it lights up, the media buttons light up and then you hear the CD Drive make a spinning up or like scanning sound and then the laptop just seems like it powers down. The thing is though, is that I believe it is still on, you can press the media buttons and they light up, the power indicator light on the front is on, but there is no image, no real noticeable activity at all.

I looked around the web and found a page that said to unplug it/remove battery and hold the power button for 30-60 seconds then power it back on and that did nothing.

Please Help. Thanks.

Did you try it with the battery out and the cable in? Also, does it get to windows then shut off or no?

Yes, I tried it without the battery in, and on the cable. It doesn't get to Windows...it doesn't go anywhere I believe. Just power on and sit there.
