Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Hi Guys, I have a Dell Insperion Laptop--one of the really older basic models however it has been giving me great service for several years, I am very careful to do my disk clean up & defrags regularly. I have never used this computer for internet just for school papers & to run various CD's & movies. At this time for some unklnown reason, it will not start up, it remains all black with no blinking lights or anything. I took the back pieces out & did my usual compressed air clean up and when everything was put back it started up for just a couple of seconds then powered down again & back to all black, could this be that my battery is dead? I have never replaced it, it never sustained any signifigant time on battery alone anyway since I got it, so I never really ran on battery power all these years. Please advise if you think I can go buy a new battery & try it, and if that doen't help do stores take them back--they are a lot of money!

A couple of things to try: Take out the battery and try to turn on the laptop while it is plugged in with out the battery.
Unplug the laptop and try to turn it on with just the battery.
Leave the laptop plugged in for a bit and then try to start it up.
Are any of the lights on the laptop on?  Also, the battery should have a status light on it as well.  Check what that says.

Dell insperion windows 7 turns off and beeps will not turn on for a while


This normally happens when the laptop overheats as it seems to have an inherent heat problem with the Insperion. Normally needs to cool off before poweron attempt is done again

What is the process for resetting factory setting?


Press and Hold CTRL + F11 when you see the blue bar at the top of the screen that has www.dell.com (this will be soon after powering on the machine). It will then display "Dell Recovery by Symantec Ghost" or something similar. Choose the restore option and then follow through the prompts.

Wan I start my dell insperion 10mini laptop than they give the beep


Well there are several problems that can "beep" you.
It could be the Ram or the Vga. Try to reinsert the Ram bank(s) and restart your computer.
Also check the temperature of the CPU. Run Bios to see the temperature.
If you have further problems or question please leave a comment and we will see what we can do. Cheers

If you boot the laptop from the XP CD it will come to an option where it says looking for Windows installations. When it finds it use the option to delete partition then format it and install. After deleting partition the laptop doesnt know it has anything installed on it. Please dont forget to vote
