Question about Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook

1 Answer

Startup repair will not fix problem

Hello Var-pun,
I'm the person with the Dell Inspirion 1501, are you saying I should purchase all new software? It had Windows Vista Basic. Should I purchase that or go with Windows XP? I would appreciate any assistance, thanks.

Thank  for the responce 
if you can risk loosing all the data then you  could go ahead with reinstalling the Operating system
if you have a windows xp  installation disc  you should go with that. but after that you might have to find the drivers for your laptop  from the internet
if you need any help  finding those you could always contact me
.


 windows vista might have all the drivers for the laptop preinstalled (that is just my guess as i have see this quite a few times) after you install vista but for that you will have to  purchase a windows vista installation disc
thanks......

BRightness FN control does not work. I tried control panel settings to adjust brightness but there is no slider. I am running Windows 7 on a Dell Inspirion 1501 laptop. Please help!


Hi,

This looks to be a software issue. if the slider in the control panel is off, and it is not responding with the Fn key. then you should check the display adaptor in device manager. install the appropriate driver if needed.

No operating system


This sounds like a common case. Usually if computers are not shut down properly then data is lost. You might need to do a fresh reinstall of operating system (windows). Before you do this, try to find a way to back up important files. Try connecting the hard drive to another pc and make a copy of needed files. Then install a fresh copy of windows. You can obtain a copy of installation these ways:
It comes with some computers.
Your computer might have a recovery section on the hard drive.
You can purchase a copy from a store "walmart"
You can purchase a copy from microsoft
Or if your smart you can get it online for free.

No display


The new hard drive has to be formatted first, then install the operating system. It cannot find the Master Boot Record. Google Master Boot Record repair on the Microsoft Knowledge Base websiter for instructions to rebuild the MBR..
