Unless you can see the little safe mode text in all 4 corners then it sounds like the computer IS in regular windows, but the video card drivers are gone. Try re-installing the video card drivers from Dell for that particular video card (there are several possibilities) and see if that helps. It is possible the video card is going bad, but usually re-installing the video drivers works.
This could be a sign of other problems too- start with the video drivers and see if that helps. If it does not- I'm guessing the operating system is corrupt, virused, or the video card is going bad.

    hmm- make SURE you get an original oem pa-10. I have had really bad luck with the cheap Chinese knockoffs. There are also a LOT of fake pa-10's out there. The pa-10 is the only adapter that truly works on this laptop, although a pa-12 will do in a pinch it will not charge the battery. If the adapter does not look identical- it is probably a fake. That rubber strap not being there on the adapter is a dead giveaway it is a fake.

My Dell Laptop Inspiron 1525 won't let me connect to the internet or restore. I can't change anything on my security settings either.


It sounds to me like you have a nasty virus problem. On a friend's computer, download "Malwarebytes" free version and save it to a USB flash drive (memory stick/thumb drive). Start your laptop in Safe Mode by hitting the F8 button right when you're booting up. Once in Safe Mode, install Malwarebytes from the flash drive and run the Quick Scan. Follow the instructions after it finds and lists all malware to remove them. Then, reboot your laptop normally and you should be able to operate normally.

I do have a dell laptop, but last night it hangs up den i cannot turn it off already so i'd just let the battery empty, i recharge it wen i woke up in the morning den it says the computer was not shut down...


I second what computus suggested, but I believe you'll have to press F8 repeatedly during boot instead of ESC or Del button. Boot up in safe mode and it should be able to restore things :-)

8600 inspiron fell wont boot


Hi there
The shock from the drop may have displaced the memory modules and the video drivers could be failing, take them/it out and re-seat them/it, then try to boot the pc again. If this does not work the hard drive has took the brunt of the shock and you have to run the recovery cd or partition. I must warn you however, that you could loose data if you have to perform a recovery.
Good luck and let us know how you get on.

Blue screen


A blue screen means operating system error. Your operating system will have to be either repaired or reinstalled using your recovery disc or operating system disc. A blue screen can also occur with a hard drive failure/crash. It's about 50/50 between system error and hard drive failure. If you have any issues or problems during or after the repair/reload of the operating system, then it's the hard drive and it will need to be replaced.

Likely a driver issue.

Boot to the safe mode, run a system restore to before the problem, see if it is resolved. A lot of the time, issues like this are caused by a combination for old drivers and new windows updates.
