Question about Dell Inspiron E1505 Notebook

1 Answer

I have a Dell Inspiron 1526, and have had recent problems with getting the screen to come on. Now, it won't come on at all. When I power up the laptop, the power light comes on, but the screen is blank and the HD led is blank. I've tried reseating RAM, the processor, and holding down Fn while powering up. The number lock blinks rapidly, while the other two leds stay constantly lit. Have scoured the net for what that code means, with no firm answer. Any suggestions? Oh, I also tried using an external monitor with no luck. Is it the motherboard? The HD is relatively new, so probably not that. Thanks in advance for your help!

Sounds like the motherboard, BUT have you dismantled the computer. Remove the RAM the drives, The HDD, the BIOS battery, the power cord, the computer battery and everything that can be removed relatively easily. Clean everything out with compressed air. Not to crazy though...take it easy!

If a friend has a similar computer try the screen on his once its removed.

Once clean reassemble.

Dells shortcuts are a little different than others. You may need to press F2 and run diagnostics from the boot menu or F8, or F12 which brings you to the BIOS. All at startup. Not 100% sure on ur Dell but it is on mine.

From this point I'm not sure...Hopefully this will help get you in the right direction. Best of luck!

I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 and had the same exact problem. I finally called Dell and they sent a tech out. They replaced my power cord and all the software. The reason for this is because Dell Inspirons has a default in the AC cords. Sounds like the AC power cord is the problem. You could find someone who has this cord and test your Inspiron with it or try calling Dell! It worked for me.

Step 1: Start up your computer and as the computer logo appears (such as Dell orHP) hit "Ctrl>F11" simultaneously. This may be different fordifferent machines, but the most common keys to hit are"Ctrl>F11." If this does not work, the F8 key has been said towork for certain machines.Step 2: Select "Repair My Computer" from the list of menu options thatappear and press "Enter."

Dell inspiron 1526 has problem (plugged in ,not


Hello there:
First you will want to ensure that the power cord is fully inserted at both the laptop and all the connections for the cord and that it is getting proper power. and check tosee that the connector thatthe power cord goes into is not loose if so this will have to be repaired
next remove the battery from the computer and unplug the power cord and then press in the power button for 1 minute than if this has a reset button on the back use a toothpick or a small item and pressin on the reset button for 30 seconds
now insert the power cord (NOT THE BATTERY YET)
and turn on the computer and it should now start up if so insert the battery and leave charge for 1 hour than you should be ok from here ok
Please keep me posted on this so i can assist you if needed.
Best regards michael

Dell Inspiron 1526 blank screen after hibernation


Press Fn Key plus POWER key ans see if the diagnostics will start. If no go, then the system is likely in a No POST state.

You can check the warranty status here:

http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/my_systems_info/details?c=us&cs=04&l=en&s=bsd&~ck=anavml

and no paperwork is needed to get warranty support, all you need is the express service code on the bottom and be a authorized user of the system.
