Re: Dell Inspiron 1501 black screen
I think your system's files is corrupted due to improper shut down or sudden lost of system power.so better do fresh installation of operating system or do recovery by booting up windows xp from cd rom.

The initial Dell Screen you see at the begining is your BIOS access. Push F12 repeatedly when you see this screen and it will take you into a system restore mode. It will let you boot from CD first (which your PC is not set up for). You should be able to start the CD fine from there.
It seems your Operating system has corrupted, Its best to use Windows Installation CD to perform Recovery Installation. You can Use the DELL Disk. Before proceed Make sure you have your backup. If you need some advanced access to files you can use UBCD.
Press the F8 key about 7 times slowly when you see the DELL logo screen after the restart.
Select the option Repair my computer.
The start up and repair window would come up follow the wizard . It should fix the issue .
If it does not , it would give you more options to try repair the system. Try system restore from the options.
If none of the above steps work , it time to reset your computer to factory settings. A corrupt vedio driver update, is the cause of this problem
