Question about Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook

Dell Inspiron 1501 random freeze

This started happening about a month ago - machine is about
1.5 years old.

At random times, the screen becomes a series of thin vertical bars,
or just a bluish-white color. At that point, keyboard is dead, only
option is to hold down the power button until it shuts off, and
then reboot.

I ran several Microsoft hardware-checking programs - check
CPU, memory, HDD etc. & all tests were ok.

I suspected maybe a heat problem, but it happens sometimes
right after booting up for the first time that day. Sometimes
it (seems to ) happen if I pick the laptop up..but not consistently.
And sometimes I can work for an hour, and it doesn't happen.

I used System Restore to go back three months, and that didn't
cure it, either.

A hard bug to trace down. Any help appreciated!

If you can take the unit apart, check the LVDS cable from the mother board to the Formatter/T-con assy. a good cleaning with alcohol should work.

My laptop is dell inspiron 1501 but no work keybord and battery charging but supply line(AC adaptor) is ok.


Hello there. The Inspiron 1510 was released almost 5 years ago. If your system is more than 2 years old, then perhaps you will have to replace the battery. Battery for the most part, will only last 1 to 2 years. As for the battery, try connecting an external USB keyboard. If its working, then you need to replace the laptop's keyboard. Hope this will help.

1501 freeze randomly. put it on cool stand to eliminate overheating, still freezes ie: goes black and has a 1 inch square color lined area.


if you can take out the hard drive
would it still do the same thing
if the hard drive is over 5 years old
chances are you need to replace,
also system restore set back to when it worked good, and reinstall windows before buying new hard drive

Computer Shuts Down Randomly


is the fan running.... check how hot it is on the bottom.... could very likely be thermal shut down... if it gets to hot it shuts down before there is any damage.... see if you can remove the shield around the fan and clean out the dust and dirt and in my case cat hair. if you can't figure out how to get the cover off let me know... i should be able to find the service manual for you
