Not knowing if you have ever taken one apart, start by laying the screen all the way back(flat) and then remove strip with power button. you have to start on the right side where there is a small notch. then remove 4 screws for keyboard. DON'T DROP THEM INSIDE CASE! remove 1 screw for shield. Then 4 screws hold down heat sink/fan assy. remember to disconnect power lead for fan. Installation is reverse. Be sure to use thermal grease between cpu and heat sink assy.

Dell insperion windows 7 turns off and beeps will not turn on for a while


This normally happens when the laptop overheats as it seems to have an inherent heat problem with the Insperion. Normally needs to cool off before poweron attempt is done again

Laptop shuts down during Windows XP install


When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is the problem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are clogged with dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed air to do this.

Dell insperion 1545 windows vista home touthpad and right click does not work help


Try plugging in a USB mouse and see if the right click works on that. If so then you probably have a defective right click button on your laptop. You will need to have the "palm rest" (the plastic top portion) replaced.

DXDIAG DISPLAYS NO AUIDO HARDWARE FOUND AFTER FULL SYSTEM REBUILD, WITH CHIPSET INF INSTALLED. DELL HARDWARE TEST SAYS SOUND HARDWARE IS FINE AND MAKES SOUNDS. MODEL DELL 9100 INSPERION LAPPTOP Thanks


Check that all drivers are up to date... I had the same thing happen to me. NVidia has a newer driver that might help u out. Also unplug the laptop and remove the battery. Hit the power button a few times to ground it out.
Plug only the power cord in and open up command prompt. As administrator run a chkdsk to possibly find the problem...
For me it was the driver! Good luck

I have a insperion 8100 laptop, I replaced the 20 gig hard drive with a new 100 gig drive. my bios is the latest update A15. It wont reconize the new hard drive, F1 and F2 will give me the same info no...


Sounds like the new drive is not "Initialized" The drive should have come with software that initializes and formats the new drive. After installing the new drive, boot the computer with the included software disc. Seagate and western digital have software that comes with their drives. If that is not possible, the other way is attach the drive to another computer, access the control panel > Administration tools > computer management > scroll down left pane and select "disc management" > this pane will show all hard drives on your system, including the new one. If the new drive does not show a partition in the right pane, then you have to RIGHT click on the name of the drive, which is the small tan box to the left of where the partition would be and select "Initialize" this is done immediately and is active immediately...no waiting. Disconnect the drive and re-install in the laptop.

Overheating problem, with fan stopping randomly


If it's overheating it's possible that either there's a problem with the fan, or the fan/heatsink is clogged with dust. If you know how to open up the laptop you can do that and use a can of compressed air to clean it out which may solve the problem. If not you'll have to replace the fan.
