    Same copmuter, same problem. And not the only problem I might add. I would never reccomend this coputer, or dell in general after this. This is an awful, awful computer and company.

I work on alot of Dell's and computers in general and it's been my experience that when a laptop heats up to the point of not being able to touch it, then the CPU fan has failed. Dell has been pretty good about replacement defective parts, expecially in warranty but they've replaced alot of my customers parts out of warranty.

Can anyone help me to do Video card failure and


As far as I can determine this machine has 'on board' graphics. In other words there is no separate video card - the graphics capability is built into the motherboard.

What symptoms do you have - why do you say 'video card failure'?

Right click not working


go into the mouse icon in the control panel and make sure its not disabled in there. If it is then enable it. If its not disabled in there then the board underneath your mousepad is bad. The right tactile button undernath the right mouse button is bad so the whole board would need to be replaced cause it comes as one whole board. You can get it directly from Dell or get one from Ebay.

Reloaded xp on dell 1501-no sound


This should be the driver specified for your machine (at least according to Dell).

There are also instructions should your model have the upgraded Audigy card instead.

Post your results and/or additional info if you need further assistance.

Enable my dell inspiron 1501 bluetooth


I looked over the system configurations for the Inspiron 1501, and it doesn't have Bluetooth capabilities built into it. The 1520 series does, but not the 1501. The only way you're going to be able to add Bluetooth technology is to purchase a Bluetooth usb adapter. Here's a link to the 1501 manuals if you would like to look over them.
