I used to service a small fleet of these 5150s. They had a lot of motherboard issues. I never had one do what you are describing but my advice is don't put any money into this thing. It's not worth it. They can barely run XP with all the latest updates much less add iTunes or antivirus software and forget it. These things fall on their face just trying to run the operating system.

Error code 00F0:136C IDE FAILED BLANK MEDIA OR NO MEDIA IS PRESENT IN OPTICAL DRIVE. IS THE HDD FRIED OR WHAT?


Hi,

You probably ran the 32-bit diagnostics in this Dell computer.

The error code 00F0:136C, actually is talking about the "OPTICAL DRIVE,"which is your CD/DVD ROM; not the hard drive.

That will fail since, I am assuming you didn't put anything inside the CD-ROM.

The diagnostics tests everything and in this case, it tested the CD-ROM and failed since there is no CD inside the CD/DVD-ROM.

Hope this helps.

Thanks,

Oliver

My dell laptop inspiron 1501 not burning or reading cds


Hi,

Please try with any bootable disk,if the system is not booting with the disk then the issue is with the ODD and it needs to be replaced(be sure that first boot device is cdrom in BIOS).

If booting then go to device manager and uninstall the cd/dvdROM drive and secondary IDE controllers and restart the system twice and check.

If fails then lens went bad and CD ROm drive needs to be replaced.

Dell inspiron 5150 laptop, reset admin. password.


Restart your laptop and keep tapping F8 key the moment you see something on the screen. You will get a black screen with some options written in white. Select the option Safe mode and then you can create a new user with admin rights. Or else at the windows login screen press and hold ctrl and alt key and tap delete key twice and then it will take you to a login screen. Dont put any password there just hit enter. And you will be able to login with admin rights.

Thanks

Dell inspiron 5150 dark screen, faint image in background


If it showed a pinkish tint on the screen before it went out it could be the backlite. If you can see a faint screen when you turn the room lights out it chuld be the inverter. Inverters are cheap ... a used one for around $8 on ebay. Try that first. Make sure that you buy the EXACT model that is presently in your laptop.
