Question about Dell Inspiron Mini 10 Notebook

1 Answer

I have a Dell Mini Inspiron 10V which has been working perfectly until one week ago. I simply tried to turn it on and got a message about a possible power surge - it gave me options of opening in safe mode but even when I tried this it takes me right back to the same screen. I just cant get past this screen - there is power going to it. Can you help

Sounds like this is a OS and you need to reinstall the OS to get the issue fixed.. The mini computers dont have CD drive so use the following option

Dell has a default partition on the computer and you can install with the same..
If you have windows 7 on the computer then tap F8 when the computer turns on and then you will be able to see the advanced boot options.. Select repair my computer.. In the repair my computer screen select the dell factory image restore...
Your computer will go through the installation and it will be up and running...
If you have windows Xp then you have to turn on the computer and when the dell logo appears you have to simultaneously press control and the F11key.. You will be able to reinstall the OS in this way..

If the restore option is not available then call up the tech support of dell(18006249896) they will replace the HDD to fix the issue

As long as you buy a genuine Dell AC adapter, it will be find.
Do not buy a 3rd party AC adapter.

I have bought at least a dozen Dell AC adapters on eBay. Just make sure the photo shows a genuine Dell.

It start beeping until XP window come up,


It could be a bad memory module. Try removing and reinstalling them. Try one module at a time to see if beeping stops . Check all other connections to make sure they are properly connected. Hope this helps.

My Dell inspiron mini 10 is just over 1 year old not used very much at all, last week for no reason there is no display on the screen, I tried to reboot on battery power and ac no luck. Thanks Frank.


There are 3 mini 10 models sold by Dell. The Inspiron 1010 (Mini 10), Insprion 1012 (Mini 10) and the Insprion 1018 (Mini 10v). Depending on which model you have, you can try to connect an external monitor and see if you get a display. The 1012 and the 1018 have a 15 pin VGA plug on the left side of the laptop and the 1010 has an HDMI jack for video. If you get a display then your LCD display is bad and needs to be replaced.

My Dell Inspiron Mini 10v comes on. It asks if I want to start in safe mode or last known configuration and after I click on either, the screen goes blue and gives me an error message with the following...


Yup go to safe mode, and choose system restore... follow instructions and select a time prior to when you had a problem. finish off and your PC should be all working again. Startup PC, press F8 at instant of turn on... choose Safe Mode. when you are asked if you want safe desktop or system restore choose restore, when you get to the restore menu, choose a date BEFORE you had problems there may only be one or two to choose from. just follow the instructions and you should be back to working with all that behind you.
