    When i ordered my PA-12 cord it was finally here yesterday so i gave it a power on test.

    But the Caps Lock Icon flashes for about 2-3 seconds and turns off!

    This morning i turned it on and went in the post screen. Windows XP does not boot because it was stuck on the blank screen with the _ letter!

    I force-powered it off, turned on, Does the same turn off again, now the battery icon flashes!

    I came home, battery icon is still flashing!

    Please help me.

    PS: I Dont want any Not working solving tips!

    Hi M8,
    Sorry but i dont understand the PS:
    Does it mean your not looking for ideas on what it could be ?
    Anyway, here`s my shortlist for this fault.....
    1.Did you order correct charger, some are 65watt some dells 90watt etc
    2.Does battery light flash all the time or only when you try to turn it on....if the later maybe dc jack fault
    3.Remove battery and try with mains in case battery shorted
    4.Check Memory is seated.....also check by replacing
    5.Do a bios reset as a last resort

    What do you mean? If you're expecting an instant and perfect solution with the very first response you're likely to be disappointed.

    Problems are extremely difficult to diagnose by remote control and more often than not a series of questions and responses will narrow the problem scope sufficiently to be solvable. Other than that ... what bAiLeY says.
