Try re-seating the keyboard, here is a link to dells website showing you how to remove the's not a tricky thing to do but do take your time and follow the instructions.

Once the keyboard is removed have a look for any liquid ingress from the cleaning, just pat down with a paper towel and replace the keyboard and restart, let me know if this helped.

You may have to many running processes, use this procedure to speedup Windows Vista: Make sure your Windows and Dell Updates are current and up-to-date. Have you cleaned the fan, vents, and heatsink with Compressed Air? Is the Laptop getting sufficient air flow? Use these two freeware programs to cleanup your Laptop. 1, CCLEANER: Use the cleaner and registry to remove junk and free up HDD space. In the TOOLS section, select STARTUP, disable ALL unnecessary startup/running programs, this will free up memory. 2, MALWAREBYTES: In the install, UNCHECK the Trial Pro version, you want the freeware version, run a FULL scan, delete ALL results, reboot.

Trys to start but when its loading it turns off...its a dell inspiron 1545 i tried to start it on safe mode and nothing it turns off

I have some things I might be asking you to do first. Because this might be a heat issue but just to make sure try these steps first.

Remove batter and charger.

Hold down power button for 20 seconds.

Remove the RAM or memory chip. By doing this the computer will give you 2 beeps and a pause then another 2 beeps just right after you power on the computer. While computer is beeping check if the laptop will turn off automatically.

If yes then HEATSINK, THERMAL PAD and FAN needs to be replaced.

If the laptop stays ON and beeping and beeping it means it might be the RAM. So test the RAMs one at a time. Run the computer using 1 RAM at the moment then try the other slot. Do the same thing on the other RAM.

If still turn off with each RAM tested the have the MOBO or PROC replaced.

If you cleaned it when it was powered on and in use there is a chance that you have accidently hit a control function that has enable / disabled an unwanted feature. If not this then the cleaner may have damaged the logic in some way - best bet now would be to call DELL support and give them the support product key on the base of the laptop - a new keyboard is easy to install - look up you tube and you will see a demo.

My laptop keys few are not workin after a spill i used a colin cleaner specially meant for cleanin this but sometimes it beeps at start up and blinks.don tell me its motherboard problem.:(


If you spilled liquid on your laptop or adapter try placing the object in rice (uncooked). The rice absorbs liquid very well. Leave it in there for several hours (2-3 at least). Afterwards, try turning on your laptop and see if the problem is solved.

My dell inspiron 1545 webcam is dark, grainy and blurry. it wasn't like that when i first bought it. plus my warranty is expired so i don't know what's going to happen

If the laptop gives good clean pictures but is as you describe it when watching your camera, clean the lens with a cotton bud.
