Your data is probably ok so don't worry about the data portion.

You can try swapping / reseatting the memory and booting the computer with the battery out.

If you don't have any success then it points to a motherboard problem, most likely.

If it is indeed the motherboard, I would seriously consider a new Dell since they're only about $200-400 for decent laptops.

You can remove the hard drive and place it into a usb enclosure to remove your personal files.

Hope this info helps.

Dell Inspiron 1501 won't power on


sounds like you have a defective logic board now, if dell doesn't want to replace it under warranty, there are laptop repair places that do it, but you have to have to weigh your options with buying a new laptop, repair could be up to 50% of what your's is worth as a 2nd hand laptop. if you're extremely tech savy you can try to do the replacement yourself, there are guides if you use search engines i'm sure something will show up for this or a similar model, mobo will be on ebay.

I get the message ''The model number for the primary battery cannot be determined.This will prevent any battery present from charging i've flashed the new bios recommended by dell to stop the battery...


The Battery LED is indicating a battery failure. So the next step is to replace it. The battery life is generally 300 to 500 discharge/recharge cycles. So it appears a replacement battery is due.

Fn key on dell inspiron 1501 keyboard not working


Sounds like your number lock is on. Find the key with blue lettering that says 'Num Lk' (or something very similar). Press Fn and that key, and your number lock will be turned off and your keys will go back to normal.

Hope this helps.
