    Absolutely nothing on the screen..tried a different external monitor and the fn f8 nothing there either. Got it to fire up once after removing the battery and power cord..pressing the power switch for 30 secs. Repeatedly pressing f12 just a fluke I think..nothing since then. Thanks for any help.

    The screen does not give you even the Dell Emblem?how good are you at diagnostics. This could take some time.

Even if the hard drive is bad you should still see the normal bios post screens and then an error message saying "no boot device found" or something similar. If you have a monitor in your home you should attach the vga cable from it onto the vga connection on that laptop. Then turn on the laptop and see if you get a picture on that monitor. If you do then either the laptop lcd inverter is bad or the lcd itself is bad. If you don't get a picture you may have to press a toggle button or buttons on the laptop to switch to the external lcd. Usually this is Fn plus another F button on the top.

Last night with I turned on my Dell inspiron 1525 notebook..the screen when white and shut down...I turned it back on and it kept going throught this routine over and over..I was able to keep it on long...


here are some troubleshooting steps: like before remove the battery and the AC adapter, then connect just the AC, see if the LED on the adapter goes out or stays on. If it goes out, see if another adapter (known good is available) or see if you can try one at Bestbuy or such. If the system powers on, then replace the AC adapter.
If no power with a known good AC adapter, then the failure is likely the motherboard or the power board. You can try the powerboard 1st

I have a Dell 1525 laptop and when powering up, nothing comes up on the screen but the power light comes on. One time it made a loud beeping nosie.


It depends on the beeping noise you hear. If it beeps short but continuouse then it is probably power problem possibly the battery. You can use a guide to the beeps to determine what exaclty is causing the probpem it might well be the hard drive is gone.

I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 that won't start. The battery light would flash orange 4 times then blue once, and then start over with the same sequence. Pulled the power board and fixed the solder joints on...


This is directly from the User Manual:
If the computer is connected to an electrical outlet, the Battery light operates as follows:
• Solid green: The battery is charging.
• Flashing green: The battery is almost fully charged.
If the computer is running on a battery, the light operates as follows:
• Off: The battery is adequately charged (or the computer is turned off).
• Flashing orange: The battery charge is low.
• Solid orange: The battery charge is critically low.

"Dell Media Direct" on Inspiron 1525


Make sure you do not have a bootable CD or DVD in the drive. If that does not resolve, then try holding the "home" (Media Direct) button while pressing the Power button on.
