Question about Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook

1 Answer

My Mouse icon is jumpy and when returning from sleep or hibernation screen goes bad.

After clearing my Vista Home and reloading it on my Inspiron 1501 the mouse is very jumpy any causes me to click and drag where I don't want and is almost unusable because of it. Also after returning from sleep mode many lines go horizontally across the screen making it hard to see anything to reboot to correct the problem. Please help. Thank you

No laptop is trashed when a password is lost. It just takes a little time to find out how to get into the system. I'll assume it is running XP Home that was originally installed on it from the specs I saw when researching. I'll also assume the password is not the one necessary to get into the BIOS CMOS setup- that one can normally be cleared by removing the CMOS battery and letting it set for a few hours or longer so the information is lost. The OS password can be cleared by making a bootable disk for that purpose. I have a Unix CD program that I made from information I downloaded from the Internet. You can do the same if you have access to a CD burner on another computer, say a friend's or one at work. I can get you the program's name if that's the route you want to take.

I believe there is a battery problem which you will resolve when you replace the battery. Have your charger checked or replace it as well.

How can I enable hibernation on my HP Mini 5101?


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa, the world's largest product support community.

Generally all Windows OS has an option for sleep & hibernate.

Windows XP Users
  • Sleep Mode
By letting your computer idle for a period of time, i.e. not moving the mouse/touchpad, or not pressing any keys except when playing a video, the screen or desktop monitor will go dark. You can resume the computer by moving the mouse/touchpad or by pressing any key on the keyboard.
  • Hibernation or Standby mode
Click Start, click on Turn Off Computer, then click Stand By.

Windows VISTA/Windows 7 Users

To put Windows VISTA & Windows 7 in Sleep or in Hibernation, the steps basically the same. First click Start, then click the small arrow head located to the right of the Start Menu, then you click Sleep or Hibernate.

To put Windows 7 to Sleep or Hibernate, click the small arrow head right next the word Shut Down then click Sleep or Hibernate.

You can turn Sleep and Hibernate off in Windows but this sounds like it might be your Bios putting the system to sleep. In windows go to power options and turn sleep and Hibernation off but double check your Bios as well for a possible setting there that will put the computer in sleep or Hibernate mode.

Dell keyboard problem


Its not the OS; its the touchpad.

You have to disable the touchpad and start using a regular mouse. When you're typing on a laptop even your hand hovering near the touchpad causes this stuff.

You can disable it in control panel. The minute u did this it will get stopped.
i am sure that this is going into your mind why did it not happen previously.
for your knowledge i should tell u that this generally happens with vista sometimes and is a common problem.
XP has an auto disable in the BIOS for this.

If it only does it running on battery power, try adjusting your power saver option. You may also want to run a program like Malwarebytes (free) to make sure it isn't some spyware causing the problem. http://www.malwarebytes.org/
