Question about Dell Inspiron 1545 Notebook

1 Answer

Not loading. Basically, the laptop stops loading just before the welcome screen [running on vista]. It gets stuck with a black screen and a cursor which I can move. Sometimes when it's loading it does a disc check.. It will load in safe mode [without network] but after then I don't know what to do? Can someone help me please? Thankyou :)

OK, first thing to try is download malwarebytes, install it in safe mode then run a scan in safe mode. This will make sure its clean and you don't have anything messing with your winlogon.exe. use the following link then let me know

    sounds like a hardware problem, try using only onr RAM chip, switching spots, this will tell you if you have a bad chip or bad slot. Also, try without dvd rom, without hard drive, without wireless card. This will tell you which device could be the problem. try to get into the bios to see if it is working once the hard drive is out. you can also do a hard drive diagnostic in bios

When I power up the screen flickers for a milisecond and returns to black. The fan runs. The hard drive gives a quick 2 second green followed by two pulses of amber for several minutes and then just quits


It sounds as if you have one of two possible problems, either the light tube in your screen is burnt out or windows is unable to load the video driver. When you see the HD green, it means the drive has started, the amber indicated it is working to load the operating system and then it stops - basically indicating it has found something it cannot load or is missing some files or is possibly busy. If your screen shows either the logo or the boot up screen (black with white letters usually), then the screen is working and it is a windows problem. Occasionally on updates or hardware changes it will take windows 5 minutes, up to a half hour at most to load - if you have a flashing cursor in the upper left corner of the screen, try just waiting to see if it will eventually load.

Vista boots just Black screen with cursor even in safe mode


Yes, this is a known issue with Vista. You need to back-up your data, format your hard drive and re-install Vista from the beginning.
There is really no use trying to repair it: it is damaged.
After you re-install Vista, do not forget to install service packs from microsoft.com.

Locked cursor on Toshiba Satellite using Windows Vista


you need to press f8 on boot when it is loading, to enter safe mode (before the Windows flash screen)

 

then when in "Safe mode" you can  should be able to gain access,

 

reboot from this mode and see if it loads normally,  if not then you have a configuration issue.

 

go back into safe mode, (login) and go to start>Run,  run a program called MSconfig,  this will allow you to look at your startup items,  and allow you to disable/enable them individually,

 

from this point you can diagnose which programs are causing your issues.

 

I hope this helps
