Dell inspiron 1525 memory test failure

I have a dell inspiron 1525 for 6 months.Last month it started to shut down without a warning.It looks like an instant shutdown and i don't get that memory dump message in that blue screen.I've ran a memory test and sometimes it shows that it works fine and sometimes it looks like the memory failes every test.I'd like the know if the problem is the ram or could it be something more serios.
Thanks a lot.

  • olaruatomic Jan 19, 2009

    At first I thougt it was a virus so i reinstalled vista....three times:| No viruses there...i'm sure.The fans are running.I thought about that too.Even more since at a moment they were running real hard ant the cpu had about 80 degrees centigrade:| I don' know how....but it doesn't happend any more.And it seems to turn off only when the memory is at about over 80% in use(i have 3 gb)

    It wasn't bought with vista...it had free-dos.I figured it should be taken to the dealer...i just hoped it might have been somethin else:( Anyway,thanks a lot:)

Were you able to do a virus scan
try to get on in safe mode by constantly pressing F8 during restar select safemode
See if shutsdown in safemode
Do you here the fans running when it's on
You may just need to do a restore
Let me know what happens in safe mode

    so your up and running did you go into safemode

    was this system bought with vista or did you upgrade.

    If you have more problems it should be under warranty

    I would take it back

    Honestly I would have installed xp instaed of vista

    but see if you have anymore problems if so I would advise returning it.

My two friends have the same screen freezing problem with a 6 month old Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop. Have to remove the battery in order to shut it down. Dell remotely re installed the original software to...


John,
As the laptop is still in warranty period, let us not open it up and loose the warranty. And also that she has taken additional insurance, you can threaten both o=the parties, ie, Dell and the insurer, that you will take them to the consumer forum (or whatever you have equivalent to that) which I am sure you have in your country. Yes, it is an additional headache, but sometimes you have to tolerate such aches and pains.

Dell Inspiron 1525 Blue screen & windows error messages/reformat


Do a recovery first and if you are still getting a blue screen on this 1525 call dell and ask for a replacment do not go any further in trying to repair it yourself as anything you do would just make matters worse if its out of warrenty then the only thing you can do is try:

1. clean the unit if there is any dust
2. try new memory modules
3. run a memory diagnostic on it using windos diagnostics
4. recover the operating system.

I hope you have some good luck with this advice.

Immediate shutdown, Heat problem, Low battery back-up


I have the same computer and had the same issues. It finally got to the point where it no longer tured on at all. I sent it in to Dell and they repaired in about 2 weeks. Send it in now before your warranty expires. But be sure to call support first and get an RMA number or you may never see your system again.
