Question about Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook

1 Answer

92 honda You ll have to forgive me, i dont know a lot about this kind of stuff. I dont have a factory manual. All i have is information that i was able to get from my friend. It's ALLDATA 9.70. The diagram it shows, it doesnt show an orifice tube, just an exspansion valve that i did replace. I was told that it surved the purpose of the orivice tube. I did replace the stuff from auto part store components. The reciever dryer doesnt have a sight glass on it niether did the old one. The system worked excellent until the 4th of july. I wasnt sure if it was r12 system or 134a because it had 134a fittings on the lines, but no conversion sticker anywhere. So we went ahead and made sure it was converted by doing it. One thing i do notice is that on the dash it has a display of the car for the doors ajar and trunk being open. It will flash a occasion (all the lights). We converted the r12 to 134a gas with math also. ALLDATA 9.70 called for 28-30oz. We took 29oz(1.82lbs.) we times that by .9 which eqauled 1.63lbs. I put 2 12oz. (1.5lbs) cans in the system plus just a little out of another can. I ve noticed that during the heat of the day, that the system cycles better than at night. When it's cool it turns off and on more. I wanted to make sure it wasn't the compressor before i spent the money and got a new one. It seems the system is working properly to me. The pressure gages tell the tail. At idle the low end is around 35psi and the high is 175psi. You pick the vehicle up off idle though, as soon as you do the low end drops to 20psi or below (based on how much you pick the rpms up to) and the high end steadly goes up around 225psi. Any information is a help to me. I'm learning as i go. You have 30 years experience, i have 0. Your help/advice is greatly apprieciated, believe me.

35 PSI is not low enough on the low side, it should be 30 PSI, is the pressure cycling switch adjustable?? if so try turning the screw under the connector out half a turn to start and then recheck, and so on, or just replace it, if you can't the PSI down to 30 then the compressor is starting to wear out., the only other explanation is the air bleend door is warped are otherwise not closed all the way, this allows heat from the heater core to mix with the cold air from the AC evaporator core, take a pair of vise grips and crip off the hot coolant supply line to the heater core under the hood, if the AC gets really cold then that is the problem not the compressor, !992 is to early for your Honda to have a R134 system, so it was converted, An expansion valve is the same as a fixed orfice. As far as the door ajar and trunk warnig light that are on this is another isssue, and by no means related to the AC concern.

Im trying to reset my whole computer back to factory settings and dont have the cd. and i do have the empowering technology thing but dont have the password to that the hint is balloon and i dont even know...

The default empowering password is 000000. That would be five or six zeros, I am fairly certain it is 6. You will need to boot from the original C drive for the factory restore to work. Once you enter the password in the empowering technology, you should find the option for a full factory restore.

Hope this helps

Dell has BIOS master password generation programs all over the web the should be something like Latitude.exe or Latitude_MasterPW.exe but these is one for each type of serial number. If your serial ends in 595B then you have to download the ones for that and so on. Good luck.

I have a HP Pavilion ze2000. I had a system crash and I have lost the system restore disk. My girlfriend has made many attempts to find the missing software and she has done quite well but there is still...


HP Pavillion have automated system Recovery built in check what you have to press in order to restore it to factory status. NOTE that this will erase your documents and stuff. So back the important data up first! If i am not mistaken it has to be some CTRL+F10 or CTRL+F11 to activate. Check manual to make sure. If it should work (because you're pressing the right key but it is not working. .... go to CMOS SETUP and make sure that AUTOMATIC system RECOVERY is enabled. This should install everything nicely for you and you should get it exactly as it was when you bought it.....

Presario V5000 -- Junk from BEST BUY

Well Colleen, I thank you for writing this as detailed as possible, You can always run a disk cleanup, (Start > My computer > Right click C: > Properties > Disk Cleanup, Under General Tab)

That will get rid of junk, Or you could Defrag the computer
(Start>My computer> Rightclick C: > Properties > Tools Tab > Defragment now)
Defrag will take all sorts of junk in a file and sort them in a folder, giving your computer more memory, You could also manually delete everything by going to the root of it all, Or you could buy more memory.
