Question about Dell Inspiron E1505 Notebook

Dell inspiron 1525 not enough memory?

The keyboard shows that it is powered on, but the screen says there isn't enough memory to run and then powers off on its own. I can't get into any applications to try to fix the problem because it automatically powers off. Is my motherboard fried? I recently bought a new charger cord. Could this have something to do with it?

Hi jerry.... its not the problem with charger cord... and it should not be the problem with mother board too. its probably due to more programmes installed on C drive and computer is trying to load more programmes into memory while startup...

switch on the computer and keep tapping F8 key continuously on keyboard.. (stop tapping when you look at advanced boot options)..

select the option safe mode... and hit enter.. you will reach to desktop in safe mode... then
start -> run -> type msconfig and enter
select startup tab -> click disable all..
and apply. ok. then try restarting computer.... even if it exists.... go to safe mode again... and try un-installing un necessary softwares which you dont require.....

INSPIRON 1525 NOT STARTING UP


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.

Inspiron 1525 mother board problem can i fix?


It does seam like a mother board issue ..but I suggest to check the CPU ..if you can get one with a similar socket ..even if it is smaller on properties...just to see if it works ..cause usually when you do have power indicators..and the fan works ..it shows that the motherboard have power ..so it may be ok ..and only the cpu may have issues or something ..So my advice is to see the socket time (see the specs for the laptop ) ...get another one ...second hand but be sure even if it is a cheap one ..that it is functional ..and try it on ..It might surprise you ..In my oppinion ..this is a clear cpu failure..(remember that the fan is powered up from the motherboard..and if this one is faulty there isn't power present .on the fan nor in the indicator led ..

Dell inspiron 1525 will not boot. it posts but will not go past the dell spash screen. tried accessing restore partition.... tried reinstalling windows from restore cd....says windows loading then hangs...


RY THIS FIRST Hold down FN KEY and POWER Button for 3 Secs to go in Diagnostics Mode (works on almost all Dell Laptops) and run the full test you'll find something wrong if its a internal issue (even if its a hard drive issues), see if that fixes it, but I'd check the CPU HS Fan (the slots where air comes out)just blow in there and you'll see dust come out, clean it out with Air Can or Air Hose at 60PSI to prevent it blowing your blades up on the fan. If its not a hard drive or cooling issue, might want to try the Memory check (Dell has laptops have memory issues from time to time) Hope this helps!

How do i dim the screen brightness on a dell inspiron 1525 laptop


Look at your keyboard some of the keys have blue symbols on them, that's the second function. At the bottom left of your keyboard next to the control key there's a button that says Fn on it hold that down and then press one of the other buttons to use the second function. The brightness control is the up and down arrows. Hold Fn and press up or down to change the brightness.
Also if your laptop is set to a lower power setting the display wont be as bright. Click on the little battery symbol at the bottom right hand corner of the screen a little menu will pop up that says select a power plan if its set to power saver your screen wont be as bright.

Hi buddy, can you give me a hand here: i have a dell inspiron 1545 model notebook with vista OS installed. when i turn it on it goes straight on to the bios set up. can you give a help on these issue?...


  1. Check for a stuck F2 key (That prompts system setup)
  2. From a power off State, press Fn+Power and run diagnostics on the system, after the PSA diagnostics, press N to not complete the memory diags, go to the Dell diagnostics, Customer, keyboard test and test the keyboard, then run the HDD diagnostc there too.

My dell inspiron 1525 wont start up


The repair occurs when there was an improper shutdown/power failure. Depending upon the size of the hard disk, it could take a few hours (especially large capacity hard disks) as it need to do several passes over the whole drive.
Just let it run until it finishes, you know if it is still running by the flashing disk LED.
