SOURCE: dead - no response

Hi, I am looking for a battery related problem solution on my own Axim X51v, but it is different than yours. One thing I wanted to share with you is that I know if the battery cover lock button is not in the locked position (slid to the right) it activates the "battery door switch". I have occasionally received error messages on the Axim when I turn the screen on and it has missed sounding an alarm. it will say "the battery door switch was open, so the system was put into "sleep mode" to preserve data from being lost" or something like that. So I believe that the position of the latch is crucial. In my case, I think the switch gets dirty. When I get the warning, I slide the switch back and forth a few times and then it stops bugging me for sometimes several months.

So, if you do not have the cover on, then your latch is probably open, and the door switch will be sensed as open. I am not sure what Sleep Mode really does, but I'll bet it will make the Axim appear dead. At the very least, try sliding that latch back to the right. However, I would replace the door, because only friction actually holds the battery in place unless the door is on. It could fall out when you least expect it. Then I think you would lose any unsaved data, and if your internal backup battery was not up to the task, you could lose everything. I hope this info helps you out.

I'll go post my own problem now.

Dear, Requested data was not in memory. An invalid system memory address was referenced. Defective memory (including main memory, L2 RAM cache, video RAM) or incompatible software (including remote control and antivirus software) might cause this Stop message, as may other hardware problems. What you can do is if you have more than one memory modules, you can boot the system with single and see. If this is due to memory leakage issue, you can find it here

SOURCE: dell inspiron 1545 won't boot turn on start up

Unseat and reseat the memory in the laptop one stick at a time in each slot one at a time. Turn on the laptop after each reseat of memory.

If that doesn't work then take out the hard drive and then the dvd drive.

Turn the laptop on again and if you still can't get video on the screen then the motherboard is defective and would need to be replaced.

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

I have a dell inspiron 1520. I have had to set my laptop up on a seperate mmonitor as my screen doesn't work properly. If my screen lights up it may last 5 mins before going dark you can see the screen...


At the base of the screen there is a long bulb, looks like a florescent bulb from a scanner, that is connected to a small board just under the to cover near the the monitor itself. You need to replace that small board. You can get it on Ebay or from Dell. Remove the board to get the part number.

I have the same problem with my dell inspiron 1520 laptop


You have an obvious electrical problem. It could be that the switch on the power module is faulty.

Remove the hinge cover and depress the power switch on the power module. If the system is starting without hinderance then the issue is the tab under the hinge cover is not making proper connection with the switch below. If the same problems persist when you go directly to the power module then the module has a faulty switch. Radio shack has those tact switches for $3.58. You can either replace the switch or replace the module.

Good Luck

Solution for ''the power light for dell inspiron 1520 turns on for about 5 seconds and goes out


If there is a yellow light on the front panel, indicates a faulty AC adapter. If you know someone with an Inspiron 1520, test with their adapter.

The screen is blank but I can see a faint image.


Try reseating the cable that goes to the back of the lcd and also the other end of that cable that plugs into the motherboard. If that doesn't do it then either the lcd or the inverter is bad. Either way when you get a replacement screen for a dell laptop it normally comes with a new inverter as well. If your laptop is under warranty thru dell then you can get it replaced thru them. If you have your serial number then I can look it up and see if your system is still under warranty.
