Question about Dell Inspiron 1525 Laptop
My laptop power will turn on, however the screen remains blank and after about 1 minute of being turned on, it beaps twice, help?
Sounds like a memory problem. Try turning your computer over and finding the access panel that has memory. It usually a small rectangle and may have an icon of memory. Remove the screw (usually only one on Dell's).
You should do this at your kitchen table to avoid static electricity. You will likely have 2 memory sticks in your computer (one may be on top of the other). Spread the clips that holds the memory and remove the memory. Try to keep your fingers off the metal. Remove both sticks (if there are two). Now put them back.
Plug-in your computer. Turn the computer back over, and try to start the computer. If you get the same result, you have some bad memory. The next question is which of the two sticks.
Unplug your computer and remove one of the sticks and try starting again. If it starts, you know that the memory removed was bad. If it does not start, try the other stick of memory and try starting.
If you find the bad stick of memory, all you need to do is get new memory. You can go to one of the memory websites and it will test your machine and determine what memory you need.
Hope that helps.
