Do you have any CD's thatcame with your laptop? If so, look for one that has "Diagnostics and utilities"listed under the "Contents". You will have to boot from that CD disk. To dothis, power on your laptop and tap the key to bring you to the "Onetime boot menu". Insert the CD and then select CD/DVD drive and hit key. Select the "Run the32 Bit Dell Diagnostics". Next select the "Express Test" and see if any errorsare detected. If no errors are reported, then your operating system software isprobably the culprit.The blue screen of death can be caused by hardware or software. If Diags pass you probably have a software issue. If you don't have the resource CD press the key while powering the system on. This will run theDell built-in Diagnostics.
sounds like the hard disk drive is slow to spin up. Sometimes older drives don't get all the way up to speed at boot, then with repeated restarts, the drive warms a bit and the spindle friction drops allowing full speed on the drive.
Try running HDD Diags the 1st boot of the day Fn +power button, see if you get any diag failure. Generally, a drive has to be within 3% of rated drive RPM (5400 or 7200) to function
We will see if the problem is due to the static charge accumulated on the laptop. Disconnect the power cable from the laptop and also take out the battery. Also, disconnect all the external devices attached to the laptop e.g. external mouse, keyboard, printer. Now keep on holding down the power button on the laptop for the next 30 seconds. Put the battery back and plug the power cable. Now try turning on the laptop and let me know if it works. Thanks!
it was a brilliant laptop ever manufactured. check the costing. for the new laptop as well as the warranty pricing. Yes it is worth repairing, if you can manage the cost. becasue extending warranties would be a cheaper option. The LCD needs to be repalced in your case.
press the fn key on laptop hold it down and then press the power key on the laptop. once u see any display on the screen you will get some tests running on the screen. The system will show you the error message which u need to note down. else you can do a Flea Power on your laptop. Remove the adapter and the battery and then press the power button and hold it down for 30 seconds then connect the battery and adapter back and try to turn on the laptop. See if the magic works for you
