Question about Dell Vostro 1500 Notebook

Vostro 1500 Will Not Start

I have a Windows XP Vostro 1500. The laptop will not start. Before this happened, a series of annoying Blue Screens of Death occurred last week. After that, my laptop just shut down. Then after a day, it began working. After that, it broke again. It will not work. In other words, when I boot my Vostro 1500, a light goes on and then it justs goes out signaling that the laptop is not on. What's the problem and how do I fix this?

(The fn key solution did not work, neither did the ''No AC Adaptor & Battery Boot Up'' work)

    To put it even simpler: my laptop refuses to turn on.

    Do you mean getting a new laptop or getting a new Hard Drive?

    Also, I suspect that its a battery problem due to the system's inability to read our battery charger. Tell me if this is a possibility or not. If it is, we can try to buy a new battery. If not, we are going to get help from Geek Squad or OfficeMax.

    If repairs do not work, then we will purchase a new laptop. Just tell me if my idea is possible so we can avoid spending hundreds for an unnecessary laptop or repair.

    ok what i meant was get a new hard drive it could be a battery issue the way to find out is run it directly off the charger make sure the battery is out if its not that it might be a hardware issue you might have a broken ac adapter i know thats happened to me several times which is also a very cheap fix if you do it yourself, but that would cause your battery not to charge allot of times when a laptop is in the factory the solder they use is very cheap and comes off easy especially if you computer runs hot, WARNING: Don't use Geeksquad they are very horrible at fixing things most of them dont even dont have degrees in it dont use them

WINDOWS XP INSTALLATION


- Start your old window in safe mode And follow these steps

- Return BIOS settings to their default levels. An overclocked or misconfigured BIOS can cause all sorts of random issues, including BSODs.
- Update drivers for your hardware.just go to site of your laptop manufacturer Once there enter the model number OR service tag of the laptop then request driver (usually found in the web site's "Support Section"). There you should be able to find all the drivers for your model laptop Most Blue Screens of Death are hardware or driver related so updated drivers could fix the cause of the STOP error.

If problem still exists, then I will suggest you to get Intel software partner reliable program Reginout to fix your annoying blue screen problem.

No guarantee but you can try this. Remove the battery and unplug the AC adapter. Hold down power button for 30 seconds. Plug in AC adapter but leave battery out. Try to restart computer. If it starts, reinstall battery. It worked on a Gateway I was working on last week. Worth a try.

My Vostro 1500 will not turn on anymore...help please!


Reset/replace the Ram/memory. Sometimes faulty and failing ram can keep a computer from booting up. If you have 2 sticks, take one out and then try to boot, then try with just the other stick. The flashing caps lock icon means a general failure, though it is most commonly associated with the motherboard.

DELL Vostro 1500 causing many problems...


For using xp you must have the correct drivers. These should be available for download from the Dell support website. You may also find updating windows xp will help you may be using service pack one, so make sure all updates are done.

If you have to load drivers you should load the chipset first followed by the graphics then the sound. Check on your hardware list under system in control panel that there are no conflicts.

I hope this is helpful please rate the assistance given.
