Question about Dell Inspiron 1150 Notebook

1 Answer

Inspiron 1150 is making a clicking sound and won't boot

When I restarted the laptop, it just makes a loud click sound and won't start Windows. If I press F12, it will not go past the date/ time line. If I press F1, it states there is no hard drive. Not sure what to do next.

Replace the Hard Drive. My bet is that the Hard Drive is broken (causing the clicking) Please note that if you replace your hard drive you will need the recovery Cd's or a copy of windows xp or vista.

My Dell Inspiron m5030 won't turn on. It was


Switch ON the PC, boot the PC in 'Safe Mode' by continuously tapping F8 button after you switch On.

Let windows boot in Safe Mode and log in to windows.

Go to 'Start'--->Programs--->Accessories--->System Tools--->System Restore

Here you will have to check "Restore computer to an earlier time' and click Next
Now you will find one Month Calendar window with Dates below, go to the previous month by clicking the '<' sign in the upper left hand corner of the Month Calendar and select any date that you see in Bold.


The detail of that particular date should show "System Checkpoint" and time on the right hand side box. Select that date.

Now, Click on Next and System Restore will start and windows will take a reboot.

Just try this and leave a feedback for next steps.

Dell 1150 laptop configuration module problem


Hi, you can perform a system restore by accessing safe mode by pressing the ESC button during bootup. Restore system to a time before the problem began. You will need to perform a full virus scan straight after normal bootup is achieved. Hope this helps
