My inspiron 1525 won't boot, the scroll light and caps lock blink


Remove 1 stick of ram and turn on, if no! take out the second one and put back the first, and power on, if okay you know the 1 stick is bad. Remove main battery and power on, "long shot" if no change chances are it is a motherboard issue.

This is a hardware failure code. You may be able to get help from dells site as to what error it is giving. Most of the time it is a major problem if it will not start. Hoever...

Won't post/boot


Try removing one of the two memory SODIMMS under the cover on the bottom of the unit. It sounds like you could have a bad memory problem that is keeping the machine from completing the POST (power on self test). I'd try one stick at a time and see if that helps.
Good luck, please rate this solution if you feel it has helped!!

Hi there.
Try cleaning the system memory and slots with a soft dry clean painbrush and re-seating it.
Also make sure the air vents and fan area is free of dust.

The 3 LED's (Num Lock, Caps Lock, Scroll Lock) are used by Dell to diagnose no-post issues such as yours. The only error code close to yours is [Num Lock ON, Caps Lock FLASHING, Scroll Lock ON]. This indicates a a memory error. Try reseating the memory modules. If you have 2 memory modules, insert one at a time to determine the faulty module.

Dell Inspiron 600 Laptop, stop working.


This is generally a problem with the battery or a memory chip. Start by removing the battery and starting up on the power supply only. Dell batteries are notorious for causeing a no start. Then try removing the memory and try one chip at a time in both slots. If neither of these work, then I'm afraid you have a failed system board component, ans you will probably want to take it in for a professional diagnostics. Also, you can find a diagnostics light codes list for your machine at Dell's support site.
