    I just tried taking out the battery and switch on the laptop. It will not start without the battery. Then I plugged in the power cable and started it without the battery. The system starts but again the scroll lock and caps lock lights blink for 20 seconds and power light in ON. and then the systems shuts off. nothing on the screen. Do you think this is a memeory issue.

Try starting without the battery. If the battery has developed a short or is going bad they are notorious for causing a no start with Dell. If it still won't start, then a memory chip may have gone bad, this also will cause a no start with Dell. Dell's machines will not start with no memory, so check it with at least one memory chip in it. Then lastly, the power management chip on the motherboard. It's rare, but they do go out and without warning. This will have to be checked by a tech.

you have a BIOS bug when hibernation , leave without battery for few days try to turn on with the charger, and if turns on go to the battery settings and disable the hibernation option, later go to dell website and update your system BIOS.

Dell inspiron 1525 won't turn on


Try to take out the battery and just use the adapter to power it on,
If your done with that then try just using the battery to turn it on, if it still won't give a single light.
If you can borrow an ac adapter for that laptop try it ,
If it still doesn't work. You'll need to replace the motherboard. Just make sure the ac adapter your gonna use is working good.

Error message with software ?


That is usually caused by cheap media. Try a better brand of blank DVD's.

Comp wont turn on


ok, all three lights is a hardware problem - this is usually related to CPU problems in the machine but can also be a sign of MB faults too - first up - remove and replace the ram - both sticks - one under the kb and the one in the bottom cavity too - if this doesnt work - i suggest either taking it in for checkup to a qualified service centre or if your feeling confident then remove the palmrest and heatsink, unlock and reseat the cpu and then try starting again

cheers
