    Need a bit more information. Are you getting the blue screen of death? Does it just initiate a shut down and turn off normally? Or does it actually just turn black and power off?

Bios password dell vostro 3500


Hi,

Going by your post it looks like you require the BIOS password. Let me know if the password prompt appears before or after windows boot. Do send me the system service with the customer details like customer name, place of purchase, shipping address, email address and phone number along with a picture of the password prompt screen via email to Kiran_kumar_a@dell.com . I will then check and see what can be done.

Thanks and Regards.
Kiran Kumar.

Vostro 3500 won't turn on and charger light is flashing


How old is your laptop? if it is over 5-6 months it could be because of a faulty battery. You may want to upgrade or change your battery.

Dell vostro 3500 shows battery connected but not charging and intermittently shoes no battery detected


Instructions

1
Determine if the laptop battery is defective. While less than 1 percent of batteries are defective, the possibility is still there. If the battery is new and only charges some of the way, it may just require a BIOS update to charge fully. New batteries that refuse to charge at all may be defective. Purchase a new laptop battery to replace the defective one.

2
Test the laptop power adapter to see if it's faulty. Run the laptop directly from the laptop power adapter and without the battery. If the laptop does not work with the adapter plugged in, the adapter is dead and you will need to replace it. The laptop battery may refuse to charge if the adapter is faulty. Charge the battery with the laptop turned off.

3
Insert the laptop battery into another laptop to test it. If the laptop battery charges in another laptop, the laptop's motherboard may be bad. Replacing a motherboard in a computer can be very expensive. If the cost to fix the computer is not worth the cost of replacing the motherboard, consider purchasing a new laptop.

4
Reinstall the battery to ensure all connectors latch properly. The latch mechanism that holds the laptop battery should click into place. If the latch does not close, remove the battery and examine the compartment for signs of damage.

5
Troubleshoot the BIOS to determine if there is a hardware problem. Turn on the laptop and immediately enter BIOS setup by holding down the "Del" and "F1" or "F2" keys, depending on the make and model of the laptop. When the BIOS screen appears, see how long it takes for the battery to charge down. If the battery does not last as long as the BIOS setup, a hardware failure may be the problem.

I am not able to install dell vostro 3500 video driver in xp


You can download the drivers from Dell WEB site, thesupport download page. Make sure you select your model desktop or laptop,better still, type in the Service Tag number, it is printed on the label on thebottom of the laptop and on the back or sides of a desktop. (If the Service Taglabel is missing then go into the BIOS setting and on one of the BIOS pages,the Service Tag number will be displayed). This will open the page where thespecific drivers for your model computer are located. Also make sure you selectthe Windows XP or Vista version of the drivers for your Windows operatingsystem. Click on this link to download the drivers: - http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/index.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen

Dell Vostro 3500 suddenly shut down, start up and works fine, after 2 minutes turn off without any warning message this happened after i installed bios upgrade A10 from dell.com


this is happening because of bios upgrade but not in a bad way. May be there is a hardware problem just starting so new bios upgrade is detecting that and thats why its restarting.

basically sudden shut down occurs in either cases- Fan not working or hard disk(or RAM) gone bad.

my advise is to contact dell customer support and they will guide you thru trouble shooting steps.
they will guide you if your warranty is not there.

Dell Vostro 3500 suddenly shut down


Try going back to the previous version of the BIOS to see whether the problem continues. You can download older versions from the Dell website and install them over the existing version.

If this does resolve the issue, I would report the problem to Dell and as a precaution inspect the fan and the ventilation screens and ducts for debris and clean as required.
If you're good with a screw driver and the laptop is no longer under warranty, you might even consider taking the laptop apart to clean out any dust build-up from the ventilation ducts.
If this answer is any help at all, please rate either 3 or 4 thumbs. (1 or 2 thumbs are considered "horrible" and "bad")
Thank you for using FixYa and have a Happy New Year!

You say the drivers you have don't work, if your not 100% sure those are the correct ones i would recommend your to:

A. Locate the seven character "Service tag" on your laptop.

B. Goto: http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/index.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen

C. Type in you service tag; locate and download the correct drivers - using the "tag" to indentify you machine ensures that you only get the correct files.

Update Dell Vostro 1000 BIOS now wont turn on, nothing on display


You may be in for some trouble, a failed bios update isn't always an easy fix. if you can find the cmos battery try to remove that for a few seconds. you will also need a disk version of the bios, download that from dell on another computer and copy it to floppy or cd and see if you can boot to that and reinstall the bios.

when you press the power button what happens, does it light up and run the fan? Nothing appears on the screen?
