This trick got me two i7-4600U FHD Touch E7440’s for $98/unit* - one sadly needs a screen (bad backlight) and neither sold with a battery, SSD+cable/caddy or RAM (although I did rummage up some 4GB DDR3L modules), so I may not be able to economically repair the bad unit :(. That said, the one with a good LCD is ready as soon as I buy a battery and a HD caddy+cable, and possibly put a matched RAM set in. I’m recycling an SSD from another machine.
-*Covid market - desperate parents didn’t want to roll the dice.
+*Covid market - desperate parents didn’t want to roll the dice since the possibility of a bad board is very, very real.
Pull the CMOS battery for 1 minute, and try to boot without it. If it boots, the CMOS RAM was corrupted. If it doesn’t, bad motherboard. It’s not like this isn’t known, so I don’t mind revealing it. Some Dell laptops are more sensitive to CMOS corruption more then others, and the E7440 is one of those that do not like low CMOS batteries. I suspect your Vostro is in that same group.
