Dell Inspiron 5150 contact problem

What can be the problem with a Dell Inspiron 5150 when you have to give it a tender pressure with your thumb/hand on the cabinett, near the pointer device/mouse, in order to keep the power on? It will not work without this pressure. Any ideas?

You can look at the place where you apply pressure, and should be able to tell what the problem is.

Dell inspiron 530s.when powered up runs very fast,computer gives 1 beep then powers off.It sometimes restarts itself only for the same thing to occur.

Good Morning--The 1 beep with the Dell Inspiron 530 is due to a bios check sum failure and or possible motherboard failure. The best resolution is to contact Dell and to see what they say. If you have any other questions--feel free to contact us at

I am looking to replace my dimension5150 witha Inspiron 570MT,, is this possible and will the 570 be compatable with my HP Printer.

all printer will be available for this computer however you have to check with HP if theres any available drivers for the windows version of your 570MT

e.g. your 570MT comes with Windows 7 and the HP printer was purchased long time ago. Go to and search for the drivers using the model number of your HP printer and look for Windows 7 drivers.

hope this help

Need a reboot disk

Does it have a Microsoft sticker on the case giving you a serial number and product type: 2000, XP Home , XP Pro etc

If it has one then you need to find a buddy with a copy of that software and hope that it is compatible with the version you have on your system.

If not then it is off to the shop for a fresh copy
