Question about Dell Inspiron 1545 Notebook
When i turn on computer, only white screen appears. nothing loads. no errors. no noise. sd rom doesnt run. when i attempt safe mode unable to access command prompt to try ad manually ru cd rom
Sounds like no GPU. With the hard drive, RAM and battery removed, plug the power in and press power, It should load to bios. If it doesn't, there is a GPU issue. If it does, you will soon know what the issue is.

check the video cable and see if it;s properly seated. run the laptop with something that uses memory. if the video chip it going to show signs of problems, it will be more prominent when the laptop gets hot. most cases laptop motherboards have integrated video cards and cannot be replaced.

SOURCE: Will not boot to Safe Mode
Try to boot from the Resource CD by selecting the <F12> key and select boot from CD/DVD drive. If you tried to run the "Diagnostics" option from the <F12> boot menu and it went to command prompt, there might be an issue with your hard drive or the "Diagnostics" partition is corrupted or missing. If all tests pass using the Resource CD, then your OS is probably hosed. As for the 9 LED light, that just indicates that your numeric keypad is enabled.

"Unmountable Boot Volume." means that the system 32 folder has become corrupt and probably you will have to recover the system.
If you have XP CD for a clean install, you have to change the boot order from within the bios (F2 on boot up) and tell it to boot from CD.
This will change the boot order and allow you to reinstall the OS.
Be warned that you WILL loose data if this is the only option open to you.
