Question about Dell Inspiron 1525 Notebook

2 Answers

I am having intermittent problems getting my Dell 1525 Inspiron to boot. It will regularly start without the powerchord attached, but when I plug in the transformer, the screen goes blank. It has recently taken several (10 ) attempts to get my laptop "running". Suggestions?

Hi. This could be a problem with the adapter. Try to drain first the electrostatic energy of the motherboard. Press and hold the power button for 30 secs without the battery on you laptop and power adapter is unplugged. Put everything back in once you are done. Turn on the computer. If same thing happened then you may try replacing the power adapter.

Hi, I think you will find there is a problem with you AC/DC adapter. What you need to do,is obtain a new one. There is NO repairing the AC/DC adapter. This is a common problem, I have seen it many many times before in my shop.
Also because your AC/DC adapter is intermittently faulty, you may also find it has damaged your battery, so it may also pay to replace or recondition that too...
Faulty PSU are the main cause of laptop failure, so you do NOT want to take any chances. Replacement is your best (only?) option.

I have dell inspiron 1525 my CD is idle how can i boot it plz


With out more specific information, I will make a guess as to what problem you are having. If you are trying to boot off the Dell recovery CD, then power the laptop on and hit F12 and you should get a Boot Menu. Select CD and hit the Enter key. Make sure the CD you want to boot from is already in the drive.

Dell inspiron 1525 shows black screen after dell logo?


The computer cant find a bootable device. Either your boot sector on your Hard drive is gone/damaged (most likely a virus) or the Hard drive failed. Start with booting with your windows disk and try to do a repair installation.

When turning on my dell inspiron 1526 you can hear the hard drive start- but screen remains black- will only start if I take out battery, unplug, replace battery, plug in and try and start again.. how can...


Same thing happened to my 1525 after my drunk friend got angry and pounded his fist on the bottom left part of keyboard (the hard drive). Replace your hard drive if it's still under warranty. If not your better off getting a new laptop.

Booting with External DVD for Dell Inspiron 1525


Power on your system, Press F2 on Dell logo. This would take you to system BIOS. Ensure that USB controller is ON, and USB emulation is also set to ON. Save settings and Exit. System would reboot now. Press F12 on Dell logo, and select USB ROM as the boot device. This should boot your computer through your External drive. If it still doesnt work, try switching to a different USB port. If none of these steps work, it may be a problem with the boot sector on your External drive.

Good Luck!

My Dell Inspiron 1525 wont load up


I'd suggest first removing your memory modules and reinsert one at a time.

But, I think your operating system is compromised, due to Spyware, etc.

Since your system won't boot in Safe Mode, your only other option is to repair or reinstall your operating system.

Hope this helps.

Unable to boot dell inspiron 1525 labtop


get a new battery and try that but check your power supply before you plug it in. Most laptops will work directly off power supply even with no battery present. If these solutions don't work for you then you need professional technicians help or a decent bin.
