Question about Dell Inspiron B130 Notebook

1 Answer

Boot up problem

Hi, I have the Inspiron B130...and have 2 questions I can't seem to figure out. If I go to start and hit turn off computer the stand by button is not lit up and doesn't let me click it. Also, if I simply shut the lid on my lap top and re-open it I cannot get anything to appear on the screen. I am sure that my settings in the control panel say to do nothing when I shut the lid, is there a certain button on the keyboard to get the screen up and running once I shut the lid? Any help would be greatly appreciated......thanks

I suggest a full and complete re-install of your Windows software use the disk that came with the computer make sure that the BIOS is set to boot from CD or DVD whichever is installed and reboot install the software and format the disk removing files especially .dll files is a no no. Who knows what else is messed up so reboot and reinstall this will solve everything for you. Especially if you are asking this question in a forum great question however by the time you figure it out you could have re-installed software and been done with it. Just a suggestion!

Hi I my daughter has locked our Dell inspiron 510m hard drive. the code is: #489K4HTD7PH-595B. Could someone please get me the password? thanks!


Question not quite clear enough
If you are referring to logging on to windows, try following
If you running Xp, try running as the administrator.
To do this start computer and start hitting F8 key straight after first screen to get boot menu up, select safe mode.
Once log on screen comes up select Administrator, should have no password.
From there you can change or remove all user passwords and change any rights/permissions that have been set to any drives or folders

If you have password when you first turn computer on, you're potentially in trouble and will need to BIOS reset; some laptops have a reset switch on bottom otherwise it will need pulling apart

Boot the system and tap F8 to get in the multi-boot menu. Choose "Last Known Good Configuration", sounds like the computer had an update it did not like, resolution on the monitor maybe off because of it. This will usually fix the problem, if it doesn't, there maybe the possibility that you have picked up malware or Windows performed an update that has gone wrong and windows will need to be repaired by booting off a windows installation disc. I will give you that procedure below just in case.

Windows Start-up Errors
Step one, you need a Windows Installation CD. If you only have a recovery disk set like the ones from HP or Compaq they will not do what you need done. Under normal circumstances however, you can use a Dell disk because the Operating system is on a stand-alone disk. All retail versions are also acceptable as well as upgrade disks. For a rule of thumb, if the disk has the Microsoft hologram it should work.
While the computer is first starting up and you see the manufacturers splash screen, tap F12 (some computers it’s F9, others it may be another key, you may have to watch and see if the computer lists the key strokes for getting to the boot menu. If you still cannot find it, boot into the BIOS settings and change your boot order there. Save your settings and exit, the computer will now seek the cd rom as its boot source first.
Place your Windows disk in the computer and start it up. When you see the test at the top of the page “Press Any Key To Boot From CD” Just hit the space bar to activate. The next screen you will see will most likely be a Windows setup screen, when you see this press the “R” key to get to the recovery console. It will get there, it may take a little time, patience. Once it loads you will be given a choice of Windows installations, there should only be one, if there are more, always pick number one. It may ask for an administrators password, if you have not set this particular password, then just leave it blank and press enter. The next prompt you see is:
C:\Windows>
You need to type the following:
cd \
hit enter. Pay close attention to the spacing between the characters. There is a space between the character “d” and the “\”
You are now at the ROOT of the drive, this is where basic commands can be given and changed. You should now see the following:
C:\>
Now type the following:
CHKDSK /R
Hit the enter key.
The chkdsk /r command also includes the P command and will also look for lost recoverable information in bad sectors.
There are occasions depending on how corrupt the system is, that this process could take several hours, so be patient with it.
Now, after chkdsk has run type the following:
FIXBOOT
Hit the enter key.
It may prompt you with a warning, that’s ok, just continue. When fixboot has finished, type: EXIT hit enter and windows will reboot. When the system reboots, tap the F8 key during this time and you will see the multi-boot menu come up. Scroll to the title “Last Know Good Configuration” and hit the enter key. If you were having some simple drive errors this should have fixed them.

My Dell Inspiron 1525 will not start up all the way. It was fine last night but all I get now is a black screen the the mouse showing. I can't turn it off unless I hold down the power button. I don't know...


boot computer when it first starts up push F8 for advance menu. in advance menu select last known good configuration. hit enter . if the computer ges to desk top do a system restore . to before the issue started. if this fails you will need the windows disk to do a system repair. your configuration may be corrupted.

Dell Inspiron 1420 will no longer boot


you need to enter setup by tapping one of the f keys or the delete key. i'm not sure which it is for this model. when you enter the bios setup change the boot order to boot to the dvd first. hit f10 and save the change then reboot with your install disk in the drive. it should start installing.

Dell Inspiron 530 I turns on and nothing happens


1.) If when hitting the power button, ABSOLUTELY nothing happens, no fans come on, nothing- You need a new power supply most likely. I see this all the time in my shop. Here's the bad news- Dell likes to use their own special power supplies, so a normal one may not even fit in the case. If that is the case, then I'm sorry to say Dell likes to charge over $100 easily for a new one.

2.) Fans come on, lights come on, but no screen. This can mean any number of things. Bad VGA cable (or DVI), bad RAM, bad mobo, even a bad PCI card. time to start troubleshooting. Change what parts you can, remove any PCI cards that are not needed, remove one RAM card then the other, etc....

try booting from a cd like the reinstall cd for windows that came with the computer. when starting hit F12 to show 1 time boot menu; select cd drive; hit any key when asked to boot from cd. This will tell you if its a software or hard drive problem.

Can't get past black screen and mouse


Power off your computer, then power on hitting F12, del or whichever key it states to go into setup. From the setup menu, select change boot order or boot menu. Set the CD ROM to the first boot device. Save changes. Restart. Your computer should boot to cd starting the installation.
