I have dell inspiron 1100 laptop, when i turn it on fan goes on for about 15 sec,with no screen, power lights and battery lights either, i can hear sound from HDD and DVD rom, but after 25 sec everything...

Could be loose battery pack.
A bad memory chip would do this as well. Sounds like your not getting power.

Try this,

Unplug it, remove battery, wait couple minutes, press and hold the power button for 5 full long seconds, wait couple minutes more, then put battery back in securely, then plug in, turn back on.

Run MS Vista on Dell 9100

The reason they told your daughter that is because either there isn't a powerful enough CPU and enough memory to support it and also there are no vista drivers for that laptop on Dell's website.

If you decide to put vista on that laptop your going to need to make sure that whatever hardware drivers vista doesn't detect, you'll need to search on the net to find vista compatible drivers if they are out there, it will be time consuming.

My recommendation from my own experience, make sure you have at least a 2GHz processor and 1GB or memory.

My Dell 5000 Inspiron Laptop Turns on Clicks and Turns Off

Unplug from wall, make sure to turn off, take battery out. Try to turn on again, to clear left over power. Then try removing the memory and hard drive.

Leave battery and all peripherals off. Plug in and see what happens.

It may also be that you have a bad power adapter and your battery has no charge. Or just a tiny bit.
