    Thanks for the help.

    I tried the diagnosis - fn + power. The screen remained black but beeps. The screen with battery alone works but as soon as I start using the power cord the screen goes dark.

    but one.

    Here is what I saw ...

    " Test result Fail

    Error code 2000-0333

    Graphic test timed out waiting for keyboard response. "

    What's next for me now?

    Is this hardware problem or what?

    Also now the screen is not lighted even with the battery .

    All I see is everything on the background.

    I have to use my PC's LCD monitor to see what is out there.

    Pls. help this thing is killing me!

    thanks all

Hi Yacob

First Run a diags on the dell laptop. You can initiate it by pressing fn+power button together and start the laptop. It will go to the diags screen. Tell me if the diags pass or not and then we will troubleshoot further.
Thank you

    Could you check the place where u plug the ac adapter in the laptop is not loose?? it seems the like motherboard port is loose as system works fine with the battery.remove the battery and connect with charger and try to run the diags and let me know.

    It seems like the lcd cable is loose or the lcd has gone bad.
    http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/sy... use this manual to check the flex cable which is black in color found under the hinge cover which connects between the lcd and the base of the laptop. if still it does not work u might have to replace the lcd.

Error code 3600:0749 dell inspiron 1501 . Result is the same if it runs on battery or AC alone (no battery in laptop).


Check the system battery information and charger information of the computer restart the computer, while the computer is booting up, press F2 repeatedly check "battery info"
If it stated ac adapter = unknown device update the BIOS
Click on drivers and downloads
Click or choose by service tag
Download the BIOS and install it on the computer
Check information after updating if same message AC adapter = unknown device; call manufaturer for a replacement AC adapter, if status has changed it is a battery problem or motherboard, contact manufacturer to test battery.

Hi,

Check it.

Download the cd iso and burn it to a cd using your favorite program.

Insert the CD into the drive and boot your computer. You will then be brought to a screen in which you will be asked to download the drivers, select your partition, select you username, and change the password.

Hope this helps

Have dell inspirion 1501 no lites come on with power cord or with battery. nothing happens.


First try a different AC adapter, see if the system will power on.
If no change, then the failure is most likely the motherboard
