Question about Dell Inspiron 1100 Notebook

Inspiron 1100 will not boot up-suspect power problem

The hard drive went bad, I replaced it. It now seems to be having a power problem. I am trying to find out what is the problem before I get more parts. It doesn't boot up, the cap lock & num lock lights are on or flashing, the light display is not consistent. The lights do not come on when the battery is out, AC power only.It often just tuns itself off, but not always.

I would hook it to an external monitor first to see if the screen is blown.
If it comes on, keep pushing F12 to get the diagnostic screen.
Run a complete test, it will give you error numbers.

Will not boot up


Check your bios and see if you can see the hard drive. You may have dropped / knocked it and it may have came loose or damaged. If the hard drive shows up in the bios, it sounds like a mother board issue.

I'm trying to increase hard disk space on a Dell


Hi.

The Dell Inspiron 1100 is a laptop whereas the Dell Dimension 2400 is a desktop pc.

The hard drives are incompatible because they are a different size, plus the Inspiron only supports one hard drive so you can't install a slave device. The only way to increase hard disk space is to buy a large capacity internal IDE laptop drive or an external hard drive.



Regards.

You can hook the laptop up to an external VGA monitor and then power on, you should get video externally by default.

If you don't try pressing the FN + F5 key once.

If it wont' boot to the XP cd make sure the boot order is set to boot cd rom / dvd rom first in the bios setup page.

Let me know if you get stuck or have any other questions ;)

I've got an Dell Inspiron 9300 LCD


Try running diags Fn + Power button see if anything fails

Since you can boot to the BIOS, then the system is posting, so I suspect you have either a Windows issue or a hard drive issue.

If the HDD passes diagnostics, I'd try booting to the XP CD and see if you can press R for recovery console and run the command CHKDSK /R and see if that resolves

Post back with the results

I had the same problem, replaced the hard drive and problem went away. The hard drive developed bad boot sectors after downloading XP service pack 3. I found out later it isn't compatable with the dell I have. Hope this helps. Good luck!!

Boot problem on inspiron 1150


Try connecting it to an external monitor.
When you do, as soon as you press the power button to turn on the laptop, close the laptop lid - as this forces the laptop to display on an external monitor.
If this works, then it means the laptop screen is bad.
If it doesn't, the most likely cause would be that the laptop video card went bad.
For a while, some older Dell laptops with high-end nVidia graphics cards tended to die suddenly.
