If it does not then your OS is in need of repair. Install the drive as a secondary in another computer and run checkdisk with repair option. Takes time and if large drive , long time.

Try to see if there is a BIOS update for your laptop. The last version is A12. That sometimes will fix the problem. If not then it is most likely that the internal charger is built into the motherboard of the laptop is starting to fail. You would have to replace that part or most likely the entire motherboard.

The XPS1530 uses Vista so go to the control panel and choose the port that you have the external monitor connected to. I use an HDMI cable and need to choose both the audio and video separately in the control panel.

I had this problem, talked to a Dell support person for two hours with no success. Went to bed, next morning, I powered the desktop off (not restart) with the power button. The first time, the DVD drive cranked up but didn't eject the disk. The second time I powered it off and then on again, the DVD drive ejected the disk.

You can try and pull the CMOS battery, but that will require taking the laptop apart. It's not something I recommend the average user try if they are not comfortable with computers.

If you recently upgraded or opened or dropped the laptop then something might have gotten loose. This has happened to me when my ram was not properly inserted.
