If you hear noises/see lights but no images, it could be a problem with the motherboard or display.

Hook up a monitor and see if you can get an image. sometimes you will need to press certain keys like FN +F8 to force the picture the monitor. Check your manual for more information on how to do that.

Another thing to try is a power drain. See here

I would try uninstalling the driver from device manager, you can find device manager in two ways,
1) is to click on start then right click on my computer or computer depending if you use w7 or not. Then click on properties then on the left hand side you will see device manager click on this then click on mouse and right click on the device and click uninstall then reboot your laptop it should then see the mouse as a new device and re-install the driver.
2) is to click on start then control panel and then hadware and from here follow the instructions above.
This will hopefully resolve your issue.
If you need anymore help please feel free to ask

Look at the "F" keys. One of them has a drawing of a screen. Press it and your external screen should work, or, plug the external screen in before youboot up. The pc will detect the external scree and switch automatically.

My dell inspiron 1545 won't stay on. Initially it would just turn off while in use ... not shut down, just turn off. I've read other's problems with the same model laptop and the solutions aren't helping....

Sounds like an overheating problem. There are safeguards in place that is the processor temperature reaches a critical temperature, it switches off to protect it. Run it with a vacuum cleaner hose on the exhaust vent. If it stays on longer, it is an overheating problem. Your cooling fan may have seized.

How can i remove a system password from dell inspiron 1545? just after switching on the laptop it prompts for a system or administrator's password. I can't enter the booting sequence.

If u want to clear the bios password u have to remove the CMOS battery from the motherboard for 5 minutes and then put it back up.

If its the windows password, and if u r lucky enough u might be able to access to ur computer from the safe mode. Enter Control Panel and click on User Accounts. Select the account for which u wish to remove password and click remove password.
