Dell includes a series of tests for a system's hardware into the BIOS
called the PSA+ Diagnostics. You can run these tests even if the
system lacks any media (hard drive, CD drive, etc.). To launch the PSA+
Diagnostics on this system, perform
one of the following actions:
- Hold down the key while pressing the power button.
- Turn on the system, press at the initial Dell™ logo screen, and select Diagnostics from the boot menu.
- Disconnect the AC power and remove the battery. While holding down the power button, insert the AC connector
into the back of the system. The system then starts and the message Diagnostic boot selected
displays. The system then launches the PSA+ Diagnostics.
- If all tests pass you will need to re-install the operating system software.

My computer is down because of malware and i cannot use it. Please help
Listen, Jennie, the best route for you is to simply reinstall the software that came with your Dell or use the backup disks that you were advised to make. Assuming you made them, all you have to do is go into your bios and make sure that your optical drive (cd or dvd) drive is set as the first boot up device. Then pop in the disk and follow the prompts.
If you did not make the disks or have any Dell disks you may be able to get the software from Dell directly. OR
check among your peers to see who has an XP OS install disk. Use that to install the operating system and then download the necessary drivers from Dell site. http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/19/product-support/product/inspiron-1501/drivers
Whatever you do, resist
the impulse to install an OS other than XP - the latter will work best with your machine. NEWER is not better!
