      Test all connections to the power supply. Since the AC cord detaches, be sure it is firmly seated in the power supply and that the wall connection is making full contact with the outlet.

    • 2). Check for the green light on the power supply to ensure it is getting AC power. Official Dell power supplies are equipped with this light.

    • 3). Replace the AC cable if sufficient power is not reaching the Vostro 1000. In virtually all cases, power issues are remedied from this part of an official Dell power supply.

    • 4). Open the computer case, and use a soldering iron to detach the barrel power connector, if all else fails with the power supply. Check with Dell if the computer is still under warranty, as this is the rarest of Dell computer malfunctions.
