Question about Dell Studio 15 Laptop

1 Answer

Have a Dell Studio. When I power up the Dell Logo appears with loading bar below that. The bar stops about 2/3 of the way, it freezes up and starts beeping. Nothing I've tried works.

This is often related to a possible motherboard problem. Try these steps: turn it off, remove the battery, and AC adapter, then press and hold the power button for about 5 to 10 seconds. Once done, reconnect at least the adapter , turn on the laptop and as soon as the Dell logo shows up, tap F2 a few times to enter System Setup (BIOS screen). From there, go to the Maintenance category, and select Load Defaults, press Enter. Press ESC, then select Save/Exit, restart the computer and see how it goes.

My laptop loads about half way and stops


Sounds like you have a problem with the OS (Operating System Software) loading. Either your OS is corrupted or your computer is having a problem detecting your hard drive. You did not specify what model Studio you have. Here is a link to Dell products:

The first check you could make is if every component is correctly plugged.
When the pc starts it makes a control of all components before booting. You may want to check also internal components.
For this reason is also useful to know if when the pc starts it does only one "beep" or a "beep code" (for instance one long and one short "beep" or two long "beeps" ecc)
If everything is correctly plugged it may be a motherboard problem.
Let us know if you solved your problem

How do i factory reset my dell studio 1537? its asking for user 2 ...name and password.....what is this??


turn off completely, power it on and as soon as the dell logo appears hold down the control(Ctrl) key and simultaneously hit the F11 key(repeatedly). The factory reset screen should come up. You will loose all data plus any programs that were added. If this does not work try the instructions on the link below. Just copy and paste. http://www.lancelhoff.com/restore-dell-studio-to-factory-settings/

Freezing during the Power On Self Test (POST) is typically due to hardware problems. You can narrow down the culprit by disconnecting devices one by one until it boots clean. Start with the CDROM, then the floppy, then any cards.

POWERS UP BUT THEN FREEZES AFTER ABOUT 4 MINUTES


Need to test and isolate where it exactly freezes? After dell logo, after windows logo or while inside windows? Now, if it only freezes inside windows try to turn off your windows updates and antivirus first and check if still freezes, if yes then try booting in safe mode, reboot system then keep tapping on f8 once dell logo appears. Check if laptop keeps freezing in safe mode. Please let me know.
