MY inspiron 1150 won't power on

Yesterday i went to turn on my computer and there was a error message in the blue screen (before the computer start to load windows) and the it said that an error has occured and it could be because a new soft or hard ware was not installed properly, if this is the first time this message has showed up then just turn off the computer and reboot. well, it is the first time i have ever seen the message so i turn the computer off and proceeded to reboot, only then the computer won't power on at all. after pushing the power button the middle green light (middle one out of the 3, i believe they are: power, something, and battery indicators) flash slowly a few times and the computer just shuts off. The screen won't even light up, windows will not load. i have had this computer since December 2004 and never had any problems with it. Can anyone tell me what is going on?

There is a problem with your memory. TURN OFF THE LAPTOP turn the laptop screen side down there are two areas you can open. open the one more to the centre remove one or all memory module inside replace with new memory module. or if there are two memory modules in take one out then turn the laptop on if it does not start take the other out, put in the one you took out first back in start the laptop if none works by themselves you need new memory
thats the solution REMEMBER TO RATE THE SOLUTION THANKS

I have a dell inspiron 1150. It had an error... something to do with the fatal battery. Can't remember the code. I found the code online and it indicated that it was for a small 2032 batttery. I took...


The CMOS batter could have been solder onto the motherboard. In most laptops, the batteries are not removable. They only power the BIOS settings (time, date, computer configuration, etc.) They do not power the LCD.

Sounds like you have something else wrong.


I don't get paid for advice so if this answers your problem, I would appreciate 4 thumbs.

Won't load the operating system


try booting into safe mode, and uninstall the program

to do this: right before the windows xp logo shows, rapidly hit F8 on the keyboard, you should get a screen that shows the advanced startup options, after you see this, use the arrow keys to select 'Safe Mode' and hit enter, the computer should boot successfully and you can uninstall the program.

NOTE: if you hit F8 too late, perform a cold-reboot (hold down the power button until the computer is off and then turn back on) and try again

When I turn on Dell Inspiration 1525 laptop. after 2 minute it appear blue screen error and then restart the system.


As soon as you see your "wallpaper" on the Windows desktop, click Start.
Point to My Computer.
Click with the SECOND (usually the RIGHT) mouse-button on My Computer.
Click Properties.
Click Advanced.
Below Startup and Recover, click Settings.
Click to remove Automatically Restart.
Click OK.

Now, the next time that you see the "Blue Screen Of Death", what message _stays_ on the screen? Write it down. On another computer, do a Google-search for that string, and read what others have done when they have gotten the same error-message.

Inspiron 1520 error code 0f00:137B or dvdrw_4


Hi,

this is either a faulty dvd drive error message, or you have missing system files on the hard-drive.
The computer is asking you for the ( Media-Software Disk ) that is missing, and is required to start the computer.
Try putting your restore cd, or operating system in the dvd drive when booting the computer.

Windows wouldn't load.


always choose from the Up -down arrows the last good known configurations ..and press enter to start windows...it was probably a system crash ..or just a protective shut down from a blue screen error..those happens probably its time to reinstall your system cause it has too many issues...but usually it isn't that tragic if you just unplug or switch of from power....and restart ..but if the problem persist ..you have to reinstall or at list to run restore with a boot from cd....cause it might have system files deleted by the antivirus ..or other mistake ... anyway ...the first three otions ar efor other porposes (safe) but any of the other two ...will work just fine...just press enter ...if it doesnt work ..it mean its damaged and need reinstalation ..

Blue screen with error message on startup


Most likely problem is a physical problem with the hard drive, but could be plenty of other things. Best bet is to back up your information (if possible) and do a fresh windows install, if you continue to get the message after a clean windows install, your hard drive is not stable, and has a problem.

Intermittent power on and off indicates a power supply failure. Check your power supply to make sure if it is working fine.
