Question about Dell Inspiron 1000 Notebook

1 Answer

Dell Inspron 1000 garbled screen after installin memory.

I was having problems with my dell being slow so talked with some guys from best buy and they sugested upgrading the memory.The only pc2100 chips they had were 512mb so I trid one.Well when I booted it up the screen has been garbled with breif moments of clairity.Removing the chips didn't change anything and after doing more research found that my laptop only supports 512mb totlal thats 256mb onboard + a 256mb chipset. It will boot and work fine with a monitor connected but the laptop screen is still garbled. Also I found a 256mb pc2100 chipset to put in it and it did help to speed it up.Any help would be great.

If you have the correct memory installed now, the best thing to do os to re-install windows. By now its been bogged down with so much stuff that a restore is the only option.
Once that is done, be careful in what antivirus software you choose to run. Norton has supposedly sped theres back up to a usable level. Thats usually the second cause of a slowdown.

Is there a quick fix to replacing the processor fan on a Dell Inspron 1000


Not a quick fix, but you can buy a cooling base unit for it which plugs into one of your usb ports which supplies power for the built in fan.

Dell Inspron 1000 processor fan stopped working. Is there an easy fix ???


The only easy fix would be to purchase a laptop tray that includes fans like those sold at OfficeMax and it would save you the trouble of having to open the laptop and maybe keep it cool enough to work for a while without it shutting down.

My dell inspron b130 has a blue screen that pops up randomly


Ahhh BSoD other wise known as the "Blue screen of death". This means that one of your drivers failed and it is very vital that you reinstall your Operating System or take it to your local specialized computer store (Best buy or local ones)

You should be able to access the CMOS Setup by pressing F2 during the POST screen (the first screen you see when starting the computer).

Dell insporn 1000 turn it on start 1 sec then turns offf help


Power on the system and as soon as you see the Dell logo please tap the F2 button 3 - 4 times. The computer will go to the system setup screen. Keep the system there for some time and see if it stays on or goes off. If it goes off in the system setup it is a hardware issue "most likely a motherboard or heatsink+fan failure". If the system stays on in the system setup more than what it usual it is a operatingh system issue. The fastest resolution is a operating system reinstallation but if you need other steps please do let me know.
Rate if useful.
Thank you.
