Dell Inspiron 15 No Power Repair which arrive in our workshop. It is a flagship model of the Inspiron 7000 series with a powerful i7 CPU paired with Nvidia GPU.

These are powerful tough laptops. however, having a powerful Processor and Graphics card inside guarantees that heat dissipation will be high.

As a result, often receive Laptops with blown components that require a Laptop Repair Service in Adelaide. And that is what we exactly do.
We specialise in Electronic Repairs, and rather than replacing the whole Motherboard we offer to repair it. This way we keep the cost much lower than a replacement one. A replacement motherboard costs around 80-90% of the value of the laptop!

A quick look at the power adapter light shows that the minute we connect the adapter light goes off on this Dell Inspiron. This immediately indicates an internal short circuit, which the adapter detects and shuts itself down to prevent more damage.

A simple method to detect short circuits is to inject voltage onto the shorted area and locate which component heats up. The one with short internals should heat up the most.

Please note: This is not educational material. It is rather a showcase of the services we offer.
Therefore, it should be used as general guidance on what to expect of such repairs.
In case you have a similar device and need the repair, always rely on professionals. These are sensitive electronic devices, and small mistakes may cause irreversible electronic damage. Which may require whole part replacement for 2 or 3 times the cost.

Dell Inspiron 15 No power – detecting and replacing the shorted component

Here we locate shorted area first, then we inject voltage to narrow down which component has shorted. Finally, we replace the failed capacitor.

These ceramic capacitors fail all the time, particularly if they are exposed to constant heat. Unfortunately, not many users are aware that servicing is a must for new generation laptops. Not only due to the risk of overheating due to the clogged up cooling system. Also, screws start becoming loose and cause a variety of laptop hinge problems too.

We have a sophisticated equipment workshop with high accuracy microscope, ultrasonic cleaning bath, reflow machine, and tools for micro soldering to achieve high-quality logic boards repairs. With thousands of components in stock, we quickly locate and replace failed components!

Repaired, not Replaced!

We are committed to reducing e-waste in Australia. How we do it is by educating our customers on the repairability and longevity of their devices, as well as providing affordable Laptop Repairs here in Adelaide.
Although our best intentions and hard work, this is not an easy task. Customers must accept that cost of high-quality electronic repairs, is between a third and half of the price of a new device. However, with the current trend of planned obsolescence in electronic design, we see more and more Laptops having shorter lifespans. To tackle that, while we do our repairs we target common planned obsolescence engineering design mistakes to ensure we extend the life expectancy of the Laptops we repair. Check some of our Laptop Repair Cases to get an idea of the process.

That said, if we buy a new one or write it off via insurance, it does not guarantee that the new one will not meet the same fate as the older one pretty soon.
As matter of fact, quite often we see accidents reoccurring within less than 2-year gaps. If we can save 1000$ or even 500$ today by repairing our faulty Laptop is great. That’s an extra half Laptop cost ready to be spent on another one when the time comes or our need for performance increases.
When that time comes is up to us to buy a new one or keep pushing the one we have, but delaying it by a year or three is always a good starting point and saves another abandoned Laptop from polluting our one and only Planet.
