Start up issues and screen problem

Inspiron 5150 all of the sudden doesn't recognize the processor which is 3.06ghz-i go into bios and it says 1.85ghz?? is there a way I can manually change this-the curser will not highlite this to change it-so I get an error message at boot up that says something like microcode revision not recognized-must press f1 to start up. ALSO the screen randomly goes black-maybe after 3hrs maybe after 5min- system doesnt shut down screen just goes black and I have to maually restart. Tried flashing bios and even an older bios but still the same. any ideas?

My dell inspiron m5010 doesn't turn on I've tried


You don't turn off a machine when updating the BIOS for any reason.
the system boots from the BIOS, and if the BIOS is corrupt due to an incomplete update. it's going to be very tricky to get it back on. contact Delly on the issue. best of luck Ram

Working on a dell dimension 5150. it posts then states hardrive error, then states an alert about some thermal error(only stated this on post the first time i turned ti on) then shortly after it turns off....


Yes, it probably is the processor over heating, the bios then shuts the system down to save the processor from damage.
The only way to cure this is by taking the heat sink and fan off the processor, wiping all the old coolent solution of the processor and fan then reapply new coolent, this should solve the shuting down issue.

Flashing cursor on inspiron 5150


I assume the power LED is on when you boot up the laptop and the power adapter is OK.
If I understand you, the RAM module is in memory slot A and not in slot B. If not the RAM module needs to be in slot A.
When a laptop doesn't the RAM module may only needs re-seating or the RAM module is faulty.
Re-seat the RAM module, and if this then take the RAM module and get it tested at your friendly computer shop.

Processor not recognized


Updating bios is outside windows.
Use another computer and download the bios, save it on a floppy, cd or usb
Put the floppy, cd or usb in your pc, change the boot on your pc, let the pc start from whatever u sored your update on
The pc will now update your bios since thats an automatic procedur.
Dont forget to change your boot back to your HDD

Good luck

Bios


Are you sure you downloaded and installed the correct BIOS patch? If you installed the wrong one, it will cause it to stop.
