Question about Dell Vostro 1500 Notebook
Last week I got blue and black screens upon start up prompting a safe mode and new configurations. At first I ignored them and chose to Start Windows Normally. Then the blue screens appeared with memory problems and warnings. Now my computer will not start. When I press the power button the power icon lights up, the caps lock icon flashes, then they both turn off. I have tried the Fn solution and various other troubleshoots including removing the battery and AC adapter, but none have worked. I just want my laptop to turn on again.
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.

I had the same problem, there was some moisture on the RAM stick under the keyboard which caused some corrosion across the data lines. I clean the corrosion off and the machine booted up and worked fine after that.
