Question about Dell XPS M1530 Laptop

1 Answer

Dell Repeatedly Restarting in a cycle

I own a Dell xps m1530 laptop. It was fine the other day, but now I'm stuck. Basically, I'll turn it on, it'll load to the dell screen with the black and white loading bar at the bottom. It'll load, and then go to the screen with the flashing line at the top for a few seconds. Then it'll go back to the dell loading screen, and continue to do this cycle again and again.

I ran all diagnostic tests available to me, including the memory tests that are on the hard drive, and the tests that come up when booting from the dell diagnostics disk. They claimed everything was fine.

I tried booting in safe mode by pressing F8 on start-up, but it doesn't seem to respond to that. F2 and F12 still work as they should.

Its a common issue for DELL Laptops usually if the battery and charger are working fine the culprit is the motherboard. If its still under warranty have them replace the motherboard and it will be good as new.Thanks

Connect it to an external monitor with a VGA connection. If the external monitor comes on, yes your screen is broke.

Dell xps m1530 nonstop beep

Sounds like a keyboard key is stuck in an engaged position. Hold the laptop upside down and while open tap the underside of the machine gently to dislodge the key. Otherwise you will have to take off the whole keyboard to see if something is lodged behind keys. Hope this helps.

Dell XPS model difference

well I did some research and I found that the M1530 has a faster processing speed and a bigger monitor than the x1530. The m1530 has a 15 inch and the x1530 has a 14 and the price is different other than that basically they are the same set up just 2 slightly different versions hope this helps.
