Question about Dell Inspiron B130 Notebook

1 Answer

Freezes immediately When I turn it on it tends to boot up just fine but once being on for about a minute, before I have a chance to open any programs, it freezes. No combination of buttons pressed gets it out of that so I turn it off. When I try to turn it back on, the green lights light up but then immediately go out. For the next few hours after that, it won't turn on anymore. I bought a new AC adapter thinking that the problem was that the battery wasn't charging properly but that didn't fix anything. Before I buy a new battery or spend anymore money I was wondering if anyone had an ideas as to what the problem is. Thanks.

    I tried the discharge thing and it is acting the same. Do you know what kind of system board I should buy for a Dell Inspiron B130, or should I just take it to a shop and have them replace it?

Hi Jeny,

Please check if your system still under warranty. There are only 2 possible issue you have. Motherboard problem or could the system memory that causes your system to slow down and not to boot to the operating system.

1. Try, removing the system battery, disconnect the power cord. Press and hold the power button for 5 seconds to discharge.

2, Turn on your system using the power cord only.

If the system will turn then it shuts off after 5- 10 seconds. It is the system board causes your computer not turn on. The board can no longer hold power. You might need to replace the system board.

You may also check if the ac adapter you purchased is within 21 days because it is under their return policy. You can request for a money back.

Keep me posted.

    Hi Jeny,

    I apologized for my late response. I just resolved my issue with login. I was not able to login to my account.

    With regard to your inquiry, i suggest to call you computer manufacturer to get the type of system board. You may also check you system specification by going to using your service tag.

    You may enter your service tag using this link,

    Keep me posted.

The other day, my wife was using my Acer Aspire One, and set it down for only a minute. When I got back to it, there was a PXE E61 error message. I rebooted the computer, and there was no error message,...

The CMOS battery is the very place and the simplest place to look for trouble. The PXE E61 warning your getting is basically telling you that the laptop cannot read the first boot device and is looking for a network boot device. This maybe from a dead or dying CMOS battery to a loose connection between the hard drive and the motherboard. Change out your CMOS battery, then get back into the BIOS and reset your date and time. After that, perform a virus and malware scan to make sure the system is clean. I recommend MalwareBytes Anti-Malware tool available at

If you use MalwareBytes, makw sure to perform a "Quick Scan" only.

After that open the "My Computer" icon and right click on the "C" drive, Scroll down to "Properties", choose the "Tools" tab and click on the "Check Now" button, make sure that the box for "Fix Errors" is checked and click on start. Reboot the system when the scan is completed.

Computer freezes after about 5 minutes of turning

Looks like the Laptop is running some backend program which could be either a service, an application running at the stealth mode, or a driver program that seems to seize the Memmory resource allocated to the Kernal. Did you try check the system log by going to Start - Run - eventvwr.exe wherein you will find two heives namely Application and system. On the second start try to go through this event viewer which is opened as i said before and find out if you can locate any memmory related critical error or any application related critical error which lead it to a hung state and a restart registered later.

If you cant find that please boot in a safe mode and see if this is happening. It should not happen ideally speaking. Still if this is happening, try to restore the OS or run the repair disk of Acer Aspire. This should resolve the issue. Still if you cant resolve this issue its surely due to a hardware problem. I would advice you to go ahead tappering the chances of problems starting from an OS monitoring to Hardware Troubleshooting as per the steps i have explained here. Good Luck.

Post Boot Freeze

It freezes because one of the programs set to start at boot crashes. To identify which immediately after booting open Task Manager and look at the processes - one should reach 99% CPU use. Once you have found it stop it from launching at boot or just uninstall it.

A0a150-1570 freezes after 5-15 minutes of use. can open programs like Internet explorer but it doesnt work normally. Close program and it just sites there.

Right it could have an error in windows. you might want to try a restore, this can be done either using disks or a system partition on the HDD, this WILL wipe it, but will then most likely fix your problem,. For the disk way just pop it in then boot the laptop then follow the on screen info. Or when you turn on the laptop press F10 or F11 then see if the recovery partition allows to boot.

You are likely having problems with your RAM. Change your RAM. If problems persist after changing RAM, you likely have some malicious codes running that is eating up your system resources and denying resources to vital programs.

Be sure to scan for root-kits.

Good Luck
