We purchased an item on 11/12/15 has a 12 month guarantee - it has stopped working how do we get a replacement

Is the date a typo? If you bought in 2015 the guarantee is expired. If you meant 2016 then the company you bought it from should replace it.

When I turn on my Dell XPS M1530 laptop, it shows a white screen that then fades slowly to gray and blue, instead of showing the bios. An external monitor shows the same. Anyone has had this issue and...

It seems you're having issues with the internal video card or motherboard.If you're not able to boot to bios it means your laptop didn't pass the POST (Power On Self Test). tried running the dell diagnostics.

here are the steps:

1. turn off the laptop.

2. while the laptop is off, press and hold down the FN key then press the power button. The dell diagnostics should come up. If nothing happens, you should call Dell to check more options.

Good luck,

How 2 get serial key of ms office 2010 for dell laptop


Do not bother about the MSOffice. Even I have two Dell latops and had the same problem of the time period expiring. I downloaded OpenOffice from, free and have been using it for the past three years. And I even get the latest version every three to four months. besides being free it is fully compatible with MS Office.

Battery not charging!

If the battery is 2 years old, then buy a replacement battery, see if it charges. Portable batteries are good for roughly 300 to 500 recharge/discharge cycles before they begin to fail roughly 18 months. Dell warrants the Battery for 1 year, so there is no warranty on the battery. If a replacement battery doesn't charge, then the motherboard will need to be replaced. If under warranty, Dell will fix it, if not, motherboards are $100-150 on Ebay.

Lines on the screed

The lines are causes by a defective NVidia Chipset. The replacement boards that Dell is using for warranty repairs should be problem free, so if under warranty, contact Dell technical support.

If out of warranty but less than 12 months after warranty expired, Dell should still fix the system.

If over 12 months out of warranty, you should be able to get a issue free motherboard from Dell Spare parts (Might be kinda pricy though)

My Dell Inspiron 1501 won't charge

If you're covered, Dell can replace the power converter on the motherboard for you. Yes, I have experience with this and yes, that should fix it.
