Question about Dell InspironTM 1501 Notebook

Probs with boot up on a Dell inspiron 530s

Just recently purchased a Dell. Was on line when the PC froze. I hit the power button on the front of base unit. Went to start it up again and nothing but a black screen with a flashing cursor on the top left hand side of screen. It does allow me to go into system set up and boot options initially. On the keyboard, there is an illuminated section with a picture of a lock and a number 9 in the middle. Any help appreciated. Thanks

When booting enter the BIOS setup svreen and press the following combination
1. Alt + E
2. Alt + F
3. Alt B

this combination will rebuild the IDE configuration and clear the NVRAM. Alt + b will save the configuration.

Alternatively

1. Shut down PC and unplug Power cable from Back of Tower.
2. press the power button and Keep holding for 10 seconds. this will remove static charge from PC
3. Plug in cable and restart.

Dell Inspiron 1501 Power Button won't turn on ....


I would remove the hinge / power button cover again and make sure the little pip that presses the button down it not broken, also check the little circuit board with the switch on to make sure it's not disconnected.
Try switching on with the cover removed.

I have dell inspiron 1525 my CD is idle how can i boot it plz


With out more specific information, I will make a guess as to what problem you are having. If you are trying to boot off the Dell recovery CD, then power the laptop on and hit F12 and you should get a Boot Menu. Select CD and hit the Enter key. Make sure the CD you want to boot from is already in the drive.

Force off by pressing the power button for 10 seconds or more. Boot into safe mode, type msconfig in the run line, disable everything that starts. Restart normally, re-enable each program untill you find the one giving trouble.

Dell Inspiron B120 won't power on


Hi
I would check the RAM in the laptop and see if it is not seated properly. You should have 2 areas that hold #1 RAM Chip
One under the keyboard and one on the bottom. I had a Dell Latitude D620 and the ram was not seated properly and I received the same error.
I hope this helps
:)

Blank screen when powered on.


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.
