If your computer’s battery does not hold a charge (for long) then likely your battery or charger are damaged. This can happen due to age and/or physical damage.
If the battery LED on your laptop intermittently flashes amber or red, then there may not be much you can do. Remove the battery and re-install it to make sure this isn’t the problem. If that didn’t work, you can contact us to see if we are able to replace it with another used one.
DO NOT FOLLOW the various self-help battery reconditioning guides on the web. Most of the Dell D630’s use Li-ion batteries which are very different from Ni-cad and others. They do not have “memory” nor can they be rejuvenated by deep charging cycles. You’ll only damage them more.
The good news is that often the batteries are inexpensive to replace. Remove the battery and search the web for the battery model. We have seen them for as little as $9 on ebay, $15 on Amazon, etc. Just make sure you do not buy a used one.
If your computer beeps (1 beep-3-4-3) but doesn’t boot then this is often a memory related issue.
Please try the following:
- Unplug the power cord
- Remove the memory chips from the machine
- Make sure they are the same size and speed and inserted into the right slots (blue before green and typically inside before outside ordering).
- Start with one stick.
- Repeat these steps to add another
Often times just removing the memory and reinserting them makes this problem go away.
The actual beep codes differ by brand and model. Search specifics such as “lenovo beeps 1 3 4 3 on startup”)
If your computer’s fan sounds like it is going on full blast but your computer is not starting up, please try the following:
- Unplug your computer
- Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds (to drain the battery completely)
- plug everything back in and trey again
