Question about Dell Inspiron 1520 Motherboard

1 Answer

I recently had my motherboard replaced by a Dell technician due to video problems. Ever since it was replaced I've been getting blue screen errors saying Hardware malfunction, random sudden restarts, and random freezing. Is this being caused by the new motherboard being installed improperly or a faulty motherboard?

If this happened after the dell technician called, ring back and complain, if your not happy with the result, i would talk to an advice orginisation. In the UK we have places like the C.A.B. ( Citizens Advice Bureau )

I have had Dell hard drive pass Diagnostic test before and still needed to be replaced. System worked fine after the replacement. At this point, with so much of your time invested I would swap out the HD. The next highest probability for the source of he problem would the motherboard. But I would go fo the HD first.

Good luck.

Dell blue screen of death


posting the stop error code and what you are doing when error occurs would be helpful. If you are getting blue screens and have pixelation of video, artifacting or other Video weirdness, then you may have a defective motherboard. If you have video corruption, and the system is in warranty or if the warranty has expired in the past year, contact Dell tech support for a motherboard replacement.

I have put here a pic or two for you to see what defective caps look like. Call Dell and ask them. I some case a while back they were doing a free motherboard replacement. The problem causes a whole raft of errors to occur from blue screens to "thermal event error" and the only thing that fixes it is to have the motherboard replaced. Hope this helps you

Dell Inspiron 1525 Blue screen & windows error messages/reformat


Do a recovery first and if you are still getting a blue screen on this 1525 call dell and ask for a replacment do not go any further in trying to repair it yourself as anything you do would just make matters worse if its out of warrenty then the only thing you can do is try:

1. clean the unit if there is any dust
2. try new memory modules
3. run a memory diagnostic on it using windos diagnostics
4. recover the operating system.

I hope you have some good luck with this advice.

Dell Dimension boot problem


You could try uninstalling the Display Adapter driver from Device Manager while in Safe mode then see if you can reboot normally. The drivers may reinstall automatically and it might blue screen again. If prompted to install drivers when restarting you could cancel and attempt to find better drivers, but it may be a failing video adapter.
