Question about Dell Inspiron 1150 Notebook

Dell Inspiron 1150 not staying on even with new battery

I recently ordered a new battery for my dell laptop because the computer seemed not to be holding its charge, and would make a loud, rapid beeping sound whenever I tried to start it up. However, when I replaced the battery, the computer started up as normal and I saw the opening screen and then it went blank and the three indicator lights at the front of the computer started to flash. I have not been able to get it started since then.

1. Is this a problem that can be fixed if I bring the laptop into the store?
2. I desperately need to gain access to the data stored on the laptop, is there a way to transfer it onto an external hard drive before the problem is fixed?
3. Is it a virus?

Dell Inspiron 6000 won't charge


Since you have already replaced the battery and the laptop works with the AC charger, then probably the charge circuit in the system board (mother board) is bad. I have rarely seen an AC charger that will power the laptop but not charge the battery. 99% of the time, if it is not the battery, it is the system board.

Go into your device manager and disable the device, and then reboot. That may give the device a chance to reset itself through windows

Connexant Modem, Sigmatel Sound and USB fail to work or install


I had the same problem with a dell m1330. Dell did not provide the xp drivers. I used various programs to identify hardware and then try to hunt them down on the internet. I finally gave up and bought driver scanner from uniblue for $30. Solved all my problems. It also sounds like your chipset driver maybe the wrong one. Also you can download "PCWizard" it will tell you the details you need to know to find the correct drivers.

You can also pick up the batteries less expensive than most computer places at batteries plus. And yes it sounds as though it is the batteries charge is getting low, especially if it runs fine when the battery is out and you have it plugged in.
