boot the computer in safemode. check if it will still lock up. if it does then run a hardware diagnostic test. if it doesnt clear the startup by opening the system configuration utility then disabling the items under the startup tab then rebooting to normal mode. regarding the computer not going to sleep mode when closing the lid, visit the power options in control panel and check the settings on what the computer does when you close the lid.

Failing to load up now after crashing. Gave run series of tests and it mentions something of the hard drive My laptop is not the notebook tho


Run Dell diagnostics to see if your hard drive is faulty.

Connect power cable, turn on laptop and press F12 key when the Dell logo comes up.

Select Diagnostics and hit enter, if you get the windows splash screen, turn off laptop and repeat.

I have a Dell Inspiron 1545. The computer kept freezing and with the diagnostics test I received error code on hard drive 0F00:075D


Your hard drive is defective or the circuit (system-board) that controls it. It's cheaper to replace the hard drive then the system-board to see if that's the problem. If it's under warranty Dell will replace either parts.

Dell inspiron 1545 wont turn on power light comes on but no screen display


Start taking your laptop apart piece by piece and test it after each removed component:
1. Remove the hard drive and test the laptop.
2. Remove the DVD drive and test the laptop.
3. Remove the wireless card and test the laptop.
4. Unplug the display panel from the motherboard/video card and test the laptop.
etc....
Continue taking it apart until you have only three major components connected: motherboard (with video card), processor, and memory. If you still experience the same problem, most likely it's bad motherboard.
By the way, before you start, try reconnecting the memory module. If you have two modules installed, try removing them one by one and test the laptop with each one separately.

Hi buddy, can you give me a hand here: i have a dell inspiron 1545 model notebook with vista OS installed. when i turn it on it goes straight on to the bios set up. can you give a help on these issue?...


  1. Check for a stuck F2 key (That prompts system setup)
  2. From a power off State, press Fn+Power and run diagnostics on the system, after the PSA diagnostics, press N to not complete the memory diags, go to the Dell diagnostics, Customer, keyboard test and test the keyboard, then run the HDD diagnostc there too.

My Dell Inspiron 1545 keeps freezing. It doesn't respond and I need to power it off. This happens once every hour of use.


It is very possible you have malware infecting the systemm. Get the download below, install and update. Then when the program starts, perform a quick scan, let it run and when the scan is finished, hit the show results button and then delete all that it finds. Then rebot the machine.
