Dell Boot up Problems

Hi,
My friend has a Dell Inspiron 1520 Laptop and having some major issues with it. The other day her son and my nephew were playing on it and being kids were fighting over it. So all she did was close the laptops cover. When coming to turn the laptop back on later it would look as if it would load up but doesnt get past the loading screen. First time round it was trying to repair something but she left this running for hours and it didnt sucessfully finish. I had a look, tried to run diagnostics but things passed. When trying to get into safe mode it loads up the drivers but hangs on BTHidmgr.sys then blue screen appears and restarts. I have tried to do a full system restore, but the cd only loads up so far then doesnt do anything. I have tried allsorts but nothing seems to get far enough to be able to follow through with.

I hope this had made sense and someone can help

Many Thanks in advance

I have restored many computers in my time and not one of them has taken aslong as this one does. I inserted the disk it took almost 1-2 hrs just for the keyboard format I want, when clicked OK the computer didnt do anything other then sit there for another 1-2 hrs. I cannot hear or feel the disk spinning, this disk was fresh out of its casing as its never been used before either.

When doing a system restore the computer will sit there for a will on the same percentage of progress completed for some time, that is normal, as long as there is activity on the hard drive light every now and then and the blinking of the light changes intensity and rythym everything will be fine and it will progress in percentage eventually, make sure the recovery cd is clean from dust and grime using a soft cloth cleaning cd from inside to outside from inner to outer not in a circular motion, give it some time to progress.

Dell inspiron 1520 won't turn on.


Remove the battery from its compartment on the side of your Dell Inspiron laptop computer.


Remove the power adapter from its plug on the side of the Dell Inspiron (if your laptop is currently plugged into a wall outlet).


Press down and hold the "Power" button on the laptop for one to two minutes. This will dispel the excess electrical current that is built up inside the laptop.


Put the battery back inside the compartment of your Dell Inspiron.


Plug your power adapter back into the side of the Dell Inspiron. Press "Power." Your laptop computer will now turn on.


hope this helps

Hi my dell inspiron 1520 not starting when power button is switched on..the power light blinks and goes off..and the system doesnt start. I had shown the laptop ito dell service center and they have...


Hello.

The most common reasons are the battery, power jack and power adapter/cord.

Power off and remove the battery. If the laptop powers on with just the adapter connected, your battery is faulty.

If you move/wiggle the power adapter at the point where it connects to the laptop, and the power goes off and on, the power jack is the problem.

The power jack is inside the laptop and either needs soldering or replacement.

If no change, the power adapter is probably faulty and needs replacement.

But, if you paid for the Dell service, Dell needs to fix the problem. Sounds like they replaced the motherboard with another faulty one.

Hope this helps.

Hi I forgot DELL PC SYSTEM/ADMIN BIOS password (Dell inspiron 1520) how unlock DELL PC? pleas help me


To reset the BIOS read the information from this link.

In case of your Dell laptop the easiest method would be using software from Hiren's Boot CD as it's pretty hard to open it up and reach for the CMOS battery or the jumper.

Some characters on keyboard not working


Restarting the laptop usually resolves this issue. However, if you are frequently having the same issue, or if restarting did not help, i suggest that you contact dell technical support to check for possible serious problem on your keyboard. you may visit www.support.dell.com

Speakers always garbled


Boot with an external bootable live operating system cd/dvd (preferably any of the live linux distros) if the audio works, then it is not a hardware issue. just search for the right drivers or worst case scenario format and re-install windows. if you still hear garbled audio, it is a hardware issue.
