When you reinstalled Windows, Windows probably did not include a driver for your wireless adapter. A driver tells Windows how to interface with a certain device, such as a wireless adapter. You can easily download the driver online and install it. Once installed, restart the computer and you should again have the ability to connect to wireless networks.
I've gone to the Dell website for you and found the correct driver. Please visit this link: http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?os=WLH&catid=5&dateid=-1&impid=-1&osl=EN&typeid=-1&formatid=-1&servicetag=&SystemID=INS_PNT_PM_1525&hidos=WLH&hidlang=en&TabIndex=&scanSupported=False&scanConsent=False
On that website, I would first try downloading the first driver on the list. If that doesn't enable your wireless after a reboot, try the other ones. After the correct driver is installed, your wireless will be working again.

There are a lot of reasons why it's doing like that.

Here's my suggestion, you boot to safe mode and fix from there.

You can try updating the drivers in your computer if you can boot to safe mode. You can use RadarSync to automatically scan and update the drivers.

If you can't boot to safe mode, then you might want to reinstall the operating system then you have to manually install the drivers into it.

Try taking the battery out then holding the power button down for 30 seconds (this clears the power in the machine), then power back on and hopefully should work.

Are you sure that you have installed the correct driver? Try going to the website of your computer's manufacturer and get the driver from there.

Swapping hard drives from one computer do not work because of hardware differences even between same brands and models.
You can install Windows XP on his computer but you need the Windows XP installation CD and you will need to use the product installation code from your computer. It is printed on the Windows label that is attached to the bottom of your laptop.

What kind of problem do you have with this unit? You can't reset AC power adapters for laptops. If it doesn't charge the battery or turn the unit on, it would be one of two possible problems, usually. The adapter is bad or the plug socket is broken on the inside, either from age or getting bumped while plugged in.(most common problem). The only thing you can do in that case is to have the socket replaced. (the entire notebook has to be disassembled to replace and put back together) I'm sorry to say but, Most computer shops won't do that. Check the adapter first, is the green light on? Check with a voltmeter to verify. Hope this helps but sorry for giving bad news.

Boot the laptop in safe mode. Or restore to a previous date when it was booting alright.

this cannot be done! the "dell" keyboard you are referring to on the system you have posted is a part of the system. you should be able to plug in the logitech to one of the USB ports on that system and it work fine. Worst case there may be software and drivers you have to install to allow that keyboard to work properly specially if it has any specialty keys like email, volume controls, web, calculator, ETC. you don't have to remove the keyboard at all but if it ends up being a problem you can disable it in the system menu by right clicking on computer, go to properties, device manager, the keyboard will be listed under HID or usb devices and you can right click and disable it there then plug in your logitech but you should be able to use both without having to go that route.

If you have tried some of what i mentioned you might try plugging the logitech into another computer first and make sure it works as it should,

Looks to me like your LCD cable is loose. You simply need to reseat the LCD cable. If you needs steps to do so I can provide them just let me know.

Step 1:
Dell sells technology such as computers, computer peripherals and consumer electronics to both consumers and businesses. Dell sells both wired and wireless keyboards and mice that are compatible with Dell and other computer systems. Dell wireless keyboards may encounter hardware, software or other problems under certain conditions.

Power Dell wireless keyboards transmit data to the Dell USB receiver, which in turn passes the data to the computer's operating system. The keyboard gets power from two AA batteries. As the batteries lose charge, the keyboard's transmissions can become intermittent. Replacing the old batteries with fresh ones will ensure consistent communication and resolve the power issue. b> Interference Dell wireless keyboards operate best and are least susceptible to interference when the user places them at the recommended distance from the USB receiver. The distance, specified in the keyboard's accompanying software or installation guide, varies by keyboard. Even if the user places the keyboard at the proper distance from the USB hub, metal objects between the keyboard and hub can create interference; moving objects that create the interference resolves the issue. b> Connection The Dell USB receiver that passes data from the keyboard to the computer requires proper and secure installation in a working USB port. If the receiver connects to the USB port improperly, or if the USB port to which the receiver is connected is faulty, the keyboard will not operate as expected. The user can reseat the receiver in the USB port, or connect to the receiver to a different, functioning USB port to resolve connection problems. b> Synchronization Dell wireless keyboards can broadcast at more than one frequency, just as their associated USB receivers do. If the two devices broadcast at different frequencies, they will not pass information to each other. The user can resolve this situation using the buttons labeled "Connect" on the top of the receiver and the bottom of the mouse. Pressing the buttons simultaneously triggers the synchronization process. b> System Dell wireless keyboards are compatible with most Dell systems. However, a keyboard may be incompatible with a given computer for reasons related to the computer rather than to the keyboard. To determine if this is the case, a user can connect the keyboard to a different computer. If the keyboard functions as expected with the second computer, the problem may reside in the first computer rather than in the keyboard.

Your model Dell may have a button on the battery with a row of LED lights. When you press this button a number of LEDs will light up, the more LEDs that are on the higher the charge remaining in the battery.
