Dell inspiron 1501 work fine turn off last night now wont turn on

You mentioned trying a different battery, try a different AC adapter.

When plugging in the ac adapter to the wall, see if the POWER LED comes on on the adapter, then when you connect it to the computer, see if the LED stays on.

If the issue occurs with both AC adapters (No battery installed) then the motherboard has failed. If one ac adapter works but the other doesn't then the adapter is bad

How to remove bios password? dell inspiron 1501.

The only way to remove a BIOS password is to open up your case. On the motherboard you will see a small battery, it looks like a watch battery. The battery keeps electricity running to BIOS when you shut the power off so it can keep the correct time and date. Remove the battery and wait about 5 minutes. Then replace the battery. The password will no longer be there.

My Dell Computer has no sound for example when it turns on there is no sound or when i watch a movie it has no sound

If you see speaker icon in systray right click and open volume controls.
Be sure to uncheck all the mute boxes in every channel you are using (main, wave, synth, cd, linein etc.)
Let me know if you already went to this step or if it`s ineffective if you want any further support by me.
