The three lights flashing is the Dell error code, you can download a table of error codes if you google it.You have to count how many times each light flashes. a Three digit number error code. Then you can fix the computer.

Did you check the AMD site for compatibility? If they are, you could have a bad chip, it could have been mishandled or inserted incorrectly. Visual inspection first for burns, contaminated or bent conductors. Static discharge will kill cpus.

SOURCE: Dell Inspiron 9200 will not boot.

Sounds like a motherboard failure to me. Remove all MEMORY, Battery, Drives, Wireless card am modem, see if you get memory beep codes. If you do, add 1 memory module, see if you can get the system to POST, If no go, try other RAM, If system posts, add items till you ID failed item. If no POST< replace motherboard ($150 to $200 on Ebay for that model usually

My inspiron 1525 won't boot, the scroll light and caps lock blink

Remove 1 stick of ram and turn on, if no! take out the second one and put back the first, and power on, if okay you know the 1 stick is bad. Remove main battery and power on, "long shot" if no change chances are it is a motherboard issue.

If it cannot finish POST then you have a mother board problem.
You state you reset the BIOS. Can you get to the BIOS menu? If you can then the problem is not motherboard errors but hard drive boot sector problems, depending on OS used.
If the BIOS has been updated, then it is possibly an incorrect version or corrupt.
If you can reflow the soldering, remove the BIOS chip and fit a known good one. That should fix your problem.
Hope this helps.

Dell Inspiron 1525 shuts down

You have had Win 7 for TWO YEARS? Hmmmm well anyway thats the problem. You see Win 7 and games don't MIX, the only way may help is to run in compatibility mode for XP SP2, and Run & Install as Administrator.

Inspiron 1525 power light is on but computer wont work

Some details please? Does the system show any video on the LCD? Do you hear any Windows Startup Sounds? Are the Lock lights (Caps Lock, NumLock and Scroll Lock on/flashing? If you have none of the above, then remove the HDD, Optical Drive, RAM, Modem, external devices/docks and wireless cards and see if anything changes. If nothing changes, thenmost likely a motheboard issue. Replace ment motherboards run $150 to $250 on Ebay
