Dell inspiron 1525 shows black screen after dell logo?

The computer cant find a bootable device. Either your boot sector on your Hard drive is gone/damaged (most likely a virus) or the Hard drive failed. Start with booting with your windows disk and try to do a repair installation.

Same thing happened to my 1525 after my drunk friend got angry and pounded his fist on the bottom left part of keyboard (the hard drive). Replace your hard drive if it's still under warranty. If not your better off getting a new laptop.

My dell inspiron laptop will not start up tingxuan - Nov 18, 2008 11:19am GMT - Last answer on Jul 19, 2010 3:58pm BST tech Hello, recently I have just switched the hard disk of one of my inspiron laptop...

Hi, I have not spoken to you before, I take it the PC was working fine before you switched hard drives?? If so, check to see if you can boot into BIOS, by pressing the F1 key during doot up. If you can and the previous question is Yes, then I believe you will need to reinstall XP.
Hope this helps

This sounds like the dreaded Windows Vista Black Screen of Death (KSOD). you might have a bad hard drive, but even more likely some software or a driver is causing a problem and caused Vista to get stuck. The repair will not work. You might be able to run a complete repair from the Windows Vista CD, if you have one. If you are not too experienced, take it to a reputable computer service center. If you are at all technical and have time, google your problem and you will see thousands of similar users with same problems.

This is one reason Microsoft released Windows 7 so soon.

Inspiron 1525 not starting up

Take out the memory and install them one stick at a time in each slot one at a time. As your doing this, turn on the laptop and see if the video comes back on.

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

Turn on the laptop now and if you still dont get video then that means the motherboard is bad at that point.

Im sorry, but its probably your computers hard drive or RAM. You might have to get a new computer.
Try plugging it in to a wall jack with the AV cable. It might give it the boost of power while youre recording
