If the power LED is ON and you can sense the fan as well problem might be on the LCD or Motherboard.

Could you please try this one and give me feedback what had happened.

Remove ac adapter and battery from laptop.

Press and hold down power button on the laptop for 10 seconds.

Plug in the ac adapter.

Hold down the Fn key then press power button once, then just keep holding down the Fn key.

You might not see anything on the screen but please do take note of the error code or beep codes.

Thanks!

My dell inspiron 1525 notebook brightness is goes down,it looks very dark, whatshould i do?????


Press the Fn key and the up arrow key simultaneiously, this should increase the brightness. (down arrow key reduces the brightness)

If this does not increase or decrease the brightness, then the problem should be with the backlight or the backlight circuits. Please contact Dell for a replacement of the LCD panel (if your computer is in warranty) if not contact a local tech who can replace the LCD panel or the Backlight for your laptop

Re: dell inspiron 1525 laptop shutdown.


There is a good possibility that you have some nasty malware or viruses. I will give you links below to programs that will clear out the problems....

At the end of this are three links to programs that you should load up and run. The first is MalwareBytes Ant-Malware Tool, another is Avast Anti-Virus 4.8, the third is Threatfire.
Run MalwareBytes first and perform a quick scan, when it finishes, it will ask you to show the results, click on “Show results, all infections will appear in red. Delete everything it finds.
Run Avast and install it, when it asks, go ahead and schedule a pre-boot scan of your entire system. This should get rid of most problems….Now, if you have Norton Anti-Virus, internet security or any of the others, they also be causing some of your problems. They will have to be removed and the only way to properly do that is go to the Norton site and download their Norton removal tool. Run this before installing any other kind of ant-virus. The Avast 4.8 is free to use, just register it once a year, that is all…it will update itself 2-4 times a day to keep its virus definitions constantly updated, you do not have to do anything, it is completely automated and has 7 real time scanners that run all the time.

When your boot time scan is over and you have either deleted or moved the infection to the chest as Avast recommends, now run Threatfire…it will ask you to let it update as will Malwarebytes, do so. Threatfire monitors every web page on the world wide web and lets you know if your tap dancing where you shouldn’t, it will throw a flag up and say abort connection…do so to save yourself from a bad situation. The links are below.

My dell inspiron 1525 has a black screen with a white cursor showing


First, I want to know if you sees the Dell logo after turning on the laptop? If yes then this is no boot issue.
1. Immediately run the PSA. Make sure laptop is off. Press and hold down the Fn key, while holding down Fn key press the power button at the same time just once. Once the Dell screen loaded you can now let go of the Fn key. Check if the PSA will run short test for the LCD, RAM and HDD. When full color displays on the screen just press Y. PSA will continue. Just take note of any error code will appear on the screen such as 0141, 0142 and 0146 these are HDD failure errors which means HDD needs replacement. If the test says no errors found then proceed to step 2;
2. Try restarting the laptop once you see dell logo then keep tapping F8. Select last known good configuration. Press enter key. Just wait and check if laptop will load Windows. If not then, restart laptop keep tapping F8 try to select safe mode check if it will load Windows. If not then prepare the Windows OS disc the one came with your laptop.
3. While laptop is on insert the Windows OS disc. Restart the computer. On the Dell screen keep tapping on F12 to show boot menu. In the boot menu select CD/DVD ROM Drive. Press enter then keep tapping on space bar until it will say Windows loading files, please wait.
4. In the User Interface it will show you some options to select. Once the Install screen comes up look on the lower part select Repair Your Computer. If will ask you to do Startup Repair, please do start up repair. If fails try the System Restore. If fails then step 5;
5. If you have important files in your HDD then back up your files first. After backing up of files you can now install the Windows OS. Here is the process in installing the Windows OS. Insert the Windows OS disc, restart the laptop, keep tapping F12 on Dell screen, on boot menu select CD/DVD ROM Drive.Install the Windows OS. Just complete the installation.After the installation install the laptop drivers.

How do i get my enter button back on my inspiron 1525?


The keys just pop on and off. If the key will not snap back on, then the keyboard will most likely need replacement.
Replacement keyboards are less than $20
