Inspiron N5110 turns itself and on ONLY when on battery

Q: Inspiron N5110 turns itself and on ONLY when on battery

Dell Inspiron N5110 running Windows 7.
When not in use I have to remove the battery or else the thing turns itself on within a few seconds of shutting down or just having the battery inserted.
It DOESN'T do this when the charger is connected to the laptop and mains electricity. If the charger is connected to the laptop but not to the mains then the laptop will also turn itself on.
Any bright ideas?

Preferred Solution: Inspiron N5110 turns itself and on ONLY when on battery

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


I have had my Inspiron 15R N5110 for just under 2 years now but lately, quite often when moved even slightly my laptop just shuts down immediately, it doesn't matter whether I have much running or not. I've looked through Event Viewer for the periods when it's cut off but there is no errors or messages related to the shutdown. After each time it shuts down this way, the laptop will not power on again until I remove the battery, unplug and replug the charger cable and turn it on, then insert the battery again once the laptop is running. If I don't follow this process then it just won't turn on again, even if left for an hour. Is my battery going faulty or is it something else? I should mention that the battery charges fine and that during the shutdowns, the charger cable is still plugged into the laptop.

A:Inspiron 15R N5110 Possible Battery Problem

Hi spectre289,
It seems that this is a hardware issue, occurring due to a loose connection for power button assembly. You may check all the connections are proper. Please refer to the system Owner’s Manual, you may refer to the link: http://bit.ly/11R8yLX.
If the system is covered under warranty, you may provide me the Service Tag and the name as it appears on the account via private message (click my username and then click Start Conversation) so I may access your records and we will take it from there.
If the system is not covered under warranty and you are residing in the US, you may contact dell spares at 1-800-372-3355 or you may contact a local technician.
Please feel free to reply for any further queries. I will be glad to assist you.

Hey there,
I've been using my upgraded Inpiron 17R SE happily for a couple of years by now. I've even gone as far as buying an 128GB SSD to futureproof it. This is the only drive - besides the DVD drive - currently present in the laptop. However I've had an issue for quite a while:
Whenever I try to boot the Laptop only using the Battery (even fully charged) it Posts then loads Windows and turns of just before the Login-Screen (I can't see it). When I proceed to turn it back on, it Posts then beeps and says that there is a Real Time Clock Error and gives me the option to proceed booting or to enter Setup.
This however doesn't occur when using the Power-Brick. Moreover it isn't always the case. Sometimes the Laptop boots and works fine just using the battery, but then upon opening a Programm (while under battery-power) it shuts of and gives the same error message again. If it decides to work the battery still lasts for 2-2.5 hours.
I'm really confused to what the problem is. It could be a power delivery problem, but it's still the original battery and laptop with only the HDD changed to a SSD.
I'm aware of it being a rather old machine, but selling it is my only hope for getting a new laptop for college, but I can't sell it in this state. 
I'm at a lost and really really sad because of this issue. I'm sorry for any typos or grammar mistakes, I'm a non native english speaker.

Hi all, just a quick fyi for anyone wanting to install Windows 10 on the N5110 like me. Although it is not 'supported' by Dell, it doesn't mean you can't do it. Just that you're on your own if you break something. Kinda like when I replaced the 'none-user-replaceable' HDD with an SSD. Currently, my 'nag screen' tells me I can't upgrade just yet and looks like this:

I wanted to see if it would run anyway, so used the Media Creation Tool to create a USB installer and went for it. I'm pleased to say that hardware-wise, everything works fine! Sound, USB, webcam, integrated and discrete graphics, VGA and HDMI outputs, WiFi, CD drive, eSATA port, Bluetooth are all working which is a minor miracle.
However, I was unable to get Windows 10 to activate. I kept getting an error saying that the product key was invalid. This was using both the key written on the bottom of my machine, and the one I pulled from the registry on Win7 using Belarc (other tools are available) which for some reason where different from each other.
So for now, I have rolled back to Win 7 and I will stay there until the normal migration route works (via Windows Update). Rolling back from Win10 to Win 7 is incredibly easy and takes three clicks for anyone wondering. Let's hope there is an official way to do this properly soon!

Ever since the last Windows update (running Windows 10) my laptop has said it isn't charging. I've been using it regularly and the battery power just stays exactly where it is. When I unplug and use it, it drains like it normally would, and when I plug back in, it just maintains whatever percentage it got down to.

Do I need a new battery or AC adapter? Help please

A:Inspiron 15R N5110 Says it isn't charging but it is

I like to suggest you try the steps in the video below for a possible fix.

I also like to suggest you check the status of the AC adapter and battery in the BIOS. Please follow steps below

A) Power off computer (make sure AC adapter connected to computer and battery as well).
B) Power on computer, quickly tap the F2 key continuously. You should be in the BIOS screen.

In the BIOS, go to the Advanced tab and look for battery health, it should say "This Battery Is Performing Normally'. If there's any other message, it mean the battery is faulty and need a replacement. Look under the main screen and look for AC adapter type. If the adapter says Unknown or None then it's a problem with adapter

Hello everybody!

I then purchased an evga 1060 sc and attempted at installing it into my pc. After installing it I started up my pc and it turned on. The fan for the gpu didn?t spin so I turned off my computer, opened the case, unplugged the 6 pin then plugged it back in. I turned on my pc again but it made an odd sound before the power button flashing orange then completely shutting off. Now every time I turn it on the light turns orange and the fans spin for a split second then they stop. Any assistance will be much appreciated...

Hey guys!!! Plz hlp me wid dis stuff. I'm stucked in making HDD Partition in my Dell Inspiron N5110. There was 2 Partitions of HDD during the tym of puchase my laptop. The retailer too said me dat it was unable to make a 3rd partition. So I tried to make a partition by my own. I tried in 2 ways: 1) During Boot time by booting 4m win7 DVD & another by going through the disc management (diskmgmt.msc). During the tym of Boot the Unallocated space remaining 4 the 3rd partition has it's New option inactive. Therefore I failed to make a partition there. 2) Inside the disk management, 1st I shrinked my Volume1 (My C:\ drive of 135 GB) to nearly 77 GB and the rest 58 GB was unallocated. When I tried to make a new Volume (Unallocated Space>Right-click>New Volume) It says me dat "You cannot create a New Volume in this unallocated space because the disk already contains the maximum number of partitions" .Plz hlp me. What 2 do?

A:Dell inspiron N5110 HDD Partition

This is very interesting.

I would recommend completely formatting the HDD. Remove everything. Then, use an advanced partition editor (gParted or Partition Magic) to create the partitions you need.

It's at this point unlikely Dell will ship out an end of life OS  like Windows 7.

Hi all,
My troubles began about a week ago when I needed to print some forms and that I had had it with my laptop not printing (despite recognizing my printer and even allowing it to print a test page from within the printer maintenance software). So I began fiddling...well now everything is messed up.
A description of symptoms:
1) My sound has a 'delay' for lack of a better word. Say an alert pop up comes up, it is 1-2 seconds later when the alert sound plays.
2) Flash games are severely delayed and I keep getting shockwave errors stalling my Firefox. I am also getting the occasional flash plug in crash notice (even if not attempting to play games)
3) I am able to watch videos/listen to music on my computer with minimal interference, but cannot use Spotify streaming as the sound has gone wonky (very high pitched digitized, skippy, etc.)
4) There is a delay between the time I click a button and it actually reacts, so where opening firefox used to take a few seconds, it now takes half a minute. Switching tabs used to be instant, it now has to think about it.
5) CPU is running hot, too hot. I borrowed my fiance's laptop pad with a fan and thankfully it brought it down from 74C to under 69C, but the fan is still running constantly.

A:Inspiron N5110 Lanptop does not turn on

Unplug the system and verify that the LED on the AC adapter is ON before you plug in the notebook end.
If there's no LED on the adapter, replace the unit with a new OEM Dell adapter.
Remove the battery and hold the power button for 30 sec.
Leave the battery out - if the system will start up on AC only but not with the battery installed, the battery is bad.
If the system still won't power up on AC only after the above reset, the mainboard is bad.  This is now a 6-7 year old system -- likely better replaced than repaired (the cost of a mainboard replacement isn't insignificant, and investing several hundred dollars into an older notebook likely makes little economic sense).

Hi IntecIT,
The Dell Inspiron N5110 might emit a series of beeps during start-up if the LCD cannot display errors or problems. The 8 beeps on this model indicate an LCD failure. However, I suggest you to try connecting a known good external monitor and check if it works (If available).

A:Dell Inspiron N5110 not booting

You need to replace the hard drive - which, while an inexpensive component to replace, isn't easy to access on this model.  You may want to view the video below before deciding to replace it yourself -- or have a shop do the job for you.
You'll need a new 2.5" 7- or 9.5 mm SATA notebook hard drive (or hybrid or solid state drive).

Hi all.
Not a discussion as such, but a post to help others out who may be thinking of upgrading the HDD in their N5110 to an SSD.
My original system details

Inspiron N5110
i5-2410M 2.30GHz
8GB RAM (upgraded from 4GB)
Nvidia GeForce GT 520M
500GB 5200rpm HDD

How I went about it
I decided to buy a 500GB Samsung 850 EVO to replace the standard hdd. The drive arrived with a CD containing the Samsung migration tool and Samsung Magician. I also bought a eSATA cable to do the data migration.
I conected the new drive to the eSATA port and tried to use the migration tool. I had to transfer 370GB from the old disk to the new, after 2 hours, the tool reported that it would take a further 8 hours to complete the migration! I gave up on that, and followed the instructions here using Clonezilla. The whole migration then took only 1.5 hours. I ignored the tweaks at the bottom, the Samsung Magician software takes care of that for you.
Once the drive cloning was complete, I followed this YouTube video to disassemble the laptop, and replace the HDD with the new SSD. Once reassembled he laptop booted flawlessly :)
The original drive is SATA2 (3GB/s), but the motherboard supports SATA3 (6GB/s) so you will get the best performance out of the new SSD. Bear in mind, that both the connector for the DVD drive and the eSATA connector only support SATA2 (and I think the DVD connector does not support AHCI either) so you must install the drive internally in the original slot to get the maxi...

A:Inspiron N5110 - results of SSD upgrade

Nice! I'm sure this will help out some others.
Just to be safe I'd advise making Dell Backup and Recovery media from the original HDD if you ever want to revert back to the factory install:
The creation of recovery media with Dell Backup and Recovery may not work on a lconed drive.

Hi there. I have Dell Inspiron N5110 (i5-2410M 2.3GHz, nVidia 525M 1Gb RAM, 4 Gb PC3-10600 RAM (now upgraded - 8 Gb)).Can I change my CPU to a more powerful? i7-2670QM 2.2GHz or i7-2720QM, for example?Regards, Lorraine. 

A:Dell Inspiron N5110 CPU Upgrade

In most cases, no - you cannot.  The systems that ship with i7 CPUs have a different system board and require a more powerful AC adapter.  You may be able to run a faster i5, but the i7s usually require a different system board.
Upgrading the CPU will also void your warranty.

Hello, So I have got a Dell inspiron N5110 with an i7 intel core in 2013, and I don't remember opening it, falling from me or even giving it to a child. Yesterday I noticed that it is overheating through a tempreature reader software, I just did this test because I noticed it heated only after ten minutes from opening it; anyways, I noticed that it reaches 81 degrees celcius in just 10 minutes from opening it and this was very dangerous, so I tried to fix it by doing the following:-
1- Decreasing the "Maximum proccesor state".2- Shutting down the laptop and removing SD cards, USBs, the battery and the charger and pressing the power button for 20 seconds.3- I scanned for malwares using "Malware bytes 12" and viruses using "ESET NOD32 Antivirus 9" and the laptop was absolutely maleware and virus FREE.4- I ran the CPU diagnostics and I didn't have any errors.5- I tried buying a new charger.6- I tried using the laptop without the battery.
And after all of these attempts, nothing happens, so I want anybody to try and help me out.
Thank You,

My AC adapter and battery are both good. also replaced the cmos battery. However when i plug in the AC adapter to my N5110 the green light on the charger goes out and still nothing.

The right hinge is broken also but that i can super glue. Any suggestions? Please Help I cannot Afford a 300.00 replacement motherboard. I have spent thousands on Dell laptops and desktops and software please HELP.

A:Inspiron N5110 wont power on at all?

The mainboard needs to be replaced.  They run between $100-150 -- not $300 (unless you need to have a shop replace the board, where you can add another $100 to the parts cost for labor).
