Vostro 1500 DELL won't start

Pls Help.. I can't get in with my laptop.. after I started the laptop it goes into a blue screen that needs to log-on (with two diff accts, one is the primary acct and the other is guest..which is unusual because I disabled the password and I only assigned 1 account and i can log-in automtically)..The choices I only have are to log-on in either account or to turn off.. but upon logging in, it only lead me to a blank screen except wallpaper (vostro logo) no icons, no task bar, cannot ctl+at+del.. i can't do anything but to the press the power button. And it goes and goes again.. And I also noticed that the lock icons with the 9 lighted. I don't know how to fix this.. any help would be highly appreciated. Thank you.

Vostro 1500, won't start, I press the power button, the drive light comes on and goes off and nothing else happens. Screen never comes on, external monitor same results.


Hello.

The most common reasons for power issues are the battery, power jack and power adapter/cord.
Power off and remove the battery. If the laptop powers on with just the adapter connected, your battery is faulty.

If you move/wiggle the power adapter at the point where it connects to the laptop, and the power goes off and on, the power jack is the problem.

The power jack is inside the laptop and either needs soldering or replacement. If a power jack problem, it should be addressed by someone knowledgeable.

If no change, the power adapter is probably faulty and needs replacement.

Hope this helps.

When you boot up to the log in screen type in administrator to log in if you cant log in

during the boot up process you will see on the screen for a short amount of time press a certain key to enter set up

Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS scroll down to set user password or supervisor password you can change or remove your password from there

or

control panel user accounts

on the users tab,click the name of the computer administrator you can change the password there

hope this helps

Turn on my Dell Vostro 1500 and all I get is a black screen


Remove and re-seat your RAM cards. Remove your battery but leave the power supply attached. Try to start. If this doesn't work, your motherboard has died and needs to be replaced. Not a do-it-yourself job unfortunately.

Black screen


I had a much older dell laptop (2001?) that did this. For whatever reason it had 5 or 6 drivers loaded for the monitor/display. Of the five, four were identical. I disabled the identical ones and kept the normal one enabled and this solved the problem.
