Try going into safe mode. Press F8 when you start the computer and then select "Safe Mode with networking" you should then be able to run a couple of diagnostic programs or a virus checker. You can even do a system restore from there.

Possible memory issue. Try Reseating your memory card on the system, it would be helpful.

SOURCE: Laptop Won't startup Vostro 1500

See if you can run the Pre-boot System Assessment (PSA) diagnostics. To run the PSA+ Diagnostics on this system, perform one of the following actions:

1) Hold down the <Fn> key while pressing the power button.

2) Turn on the system, press <F12> at the initial Dell™ logo screen, and select “Diagnostics” from the boot menu.

3) Disconnect the AC power and remove the battery. While holding down the power button, insert the AC connector into the back of the system. The system then starts and the message “Diagnostic boot selected” displays. The system then launches the PSA+ Diagnostics.

According to Dell specs, there is no error code listed that you described, (Flashing Caps LED). Also try reseating the memory modules, (you might want to try this first).

SOURCE: Dell Vostro 1000 will not boot.

It maybe the power adaptor is loose on the motherboard. Push the cord in and rotate it and continuously push the power button if it starts that is your problrm. You can temporarily fix it with tape once you discover where the cord wants to be or you can use a clamp.

I have a dell vostro 1000 laptop. when i turned it on, the screen is dark. i can still see the desktop but it's very dark. i tried the FN F8 and the FN up and down arrows. What next?


Battery in the laptop could be dead. It doesn't have enough charge to boot into windows possibly.

If your into windows then check the power settings. You can adjust the brightness if vista type power in the search. xp go to control panel power and maintenance.

My dell vostro 1000 won't turn on the green light


Try to do this: (Draining flea power)
1. Unplug the ac adapter (if connected)
2. Remove the battery
3. Press and hold the power button for at least 10sec.
4. Put back the battery and ac adapter
5. Turn it on

- check if you can now boot to windows, if not there could be a hardware problem and next step would be running some diagnostic test on the computer for hardware problem.

Press F8 at boot up to get a menu with various options. Select Safe Mode and boot. Once booted, go to display settings and set your monitor right. If that does not work, then F8 at bootup and select the options which says "Last good Bootup". that should do away the new driver you loaded.

Update Dell Vostro 1000 BIOS now wont turn on, nothing on display


You may be in for some trouble, a failed bios update isn't always an easy fix. if you can find the cmos battery try to remove that for a few seconds. you will also need a disk version of the bios, download that from dell on another computer and copy it to floppy or cd and see if you can boot to that and reinstall the bios.

when you press the power button what happens, does it light up and run the fan? Nothing appears on the screen?

I'm getting blue screen on bootup


Sometime hitting F8 during boot up brings the safe boot screen. Booting to safe then booting normally sometime fixes the problem.
