Question about Dell Inspiron E1505 Notebook

1 Answer

Blank screen when powered on.

When I turn on my Dell inspiron E1505 the dell logo comes on and then there is a blank screen. I have ran diagnostics and everything is fine. But nothing else. I hit the power button and it shuts down right away. Don't have to hold it down for a few seconds like before.

Do you have any CD’s that came with your laptop? If so, look for one that has “Diagnostics and utilities” listed under the “Contents”. To boot from that CD disk, power on your laptop and tap the <F12> key to bring you to the “One time boot menu”. Insert the CD and then select CD/DVD drive and hit <Enter> key. You can also boot from the Windows reinstallation disk. If the computer boots from either CD, then your Operating System is corrupted and needs to be reloaded.

I have a Dell Inspiron 1526, and have had recent problems with getting the screen to come on. Now, it won't come on at all. When I power up the laptop, the power light comes on, but the screen is blank and...


Sounds like the motherboard, BUT have you dismantled the computer. Remove the RAM the drives, The HDD, the BIOS battery, the power cord, the computer battery and everything that can be removed relatively easily. Clean everything out with compressed air. Not to crazy though...take it easy!

If a friend has a similar computer try the screen on his once its removed.

Once clean reassemble.

Dells shortcuts are a little different than others. You may need to press F2 and run diagnostics from the boot menu or F8, or F12 which brings you to the BIOS. All at startup. Not 100% sure on ur Dell but it is on mine.

From this point I'm not sure...Hopefully this will help get you in the right direction. Best of luck!

Run the Dell Diagnostics Utility by pressing Fn+Power button at the same time.

If the Diagnostics doesn't come up, your motherboard needs replacement.

I have a Dell Inspiron e1505 laptop that just won't come on.


hi, your laptop led`s are also there for diagnostic purposes, if the caps lock and scroll lock (the one on right of caps) are flashing before going off, it means your system is not detecting the RAM so either your ram has failed or the motherboard is faulty
