Make sure it is the same speed,etc as the original::

NOTE: To get maximum performance/dual-channel memory bandwidth capability, both memory module connectors must contain memory modules and the modules must be of the same size and configuration.
note.gif NOTE: If a memory module is not installed properly, the computer does not boot.

Blank screen

If, when it does start and you see normal screens your version of Windows is probably corrupt or you have some type of virus. I would recommend wiping your hard drive and reinstall Windows.

My daughter's Dell Inspiron 1501 laptop screen has gone almost blank. When I open the laptop I momentarily get to see the screen as it should be. I have tried the 'fn' & 'up arrow' keys without success....

this sounds like a loose conection to the lcd inverter or the lcd cable to the motherboard. it can be repaired. how are you at taking things apart?

Dell Inspiron 1501 screen is blank

yeah look on the keyboard for something that looks like two monitors on the F-key row. It might even say LCD on it. Hold down the Fn key and push the F-key that has the pic.

You should have the other monitor hooked up because what you are changing is the display modes. To switch modes you hold down the Fn key and tap the F-key with the pic. Let me know if anything happens.

Dell 1501 inspiron laptop blank screen


Have you installed any application/program prior to the blue screen? Most blue screen causes your system not to boot to your operating system anymore. It is possible that your hard drive is crashed due to a virus infections or spywares. Incompatibility and corrupted system registry may affect your system to have blue screen as well.

You may try the following steps below.

1. Restart your computer. After you pressed the power button to restart. Keep on tapping F8 key on the keyboard on and off.

2. Boot advanced option will show up on the screen. You may boot your computer to the following option.

a. Last known good configuration
b. Safe mode with Networking.

If Safe mode w/networking works, restore your computer to an earlier using the system restore features.

Keep me posted.
