For the Inspiron 1520 (also the inspiron 1521 and others), I found that it is necesary that first the F8 key be used to get the starting advanced options, and then use the first option (Repair the system) to get into the program that recover the complete system to the factory initial configurations. It functions properly.

Or follow the steps on this link, first select your operatining system:

This will restore the Dell Computer to Original Factory Installation with Dell DataSafe Local Backup 2.0.
NOTE! This only will work if you have not reloaded the OS (operating system) or reformatted your hard drive.

Insperob 1521 #4fypgdi-595b is locked up. how do I reset my computer


If you want to just reset it to reboot, hold powert button 5 seconds and it is enough. Press F8 upon reboot and try to boot into safe mode (remove user account password restriction).

If you mean "hard reset" it is not possible, you must reinstall OS with original disc.

When I plug in my Dell Inspiron 1521 laptop, I get an error message saying it does not recognize my charger, will not charge and will likely slow down my computer's speed/performance. Everything...


Same topic on Dell official community, may it will help.
http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/laptop/f/3518/t/7311465.aspx

There is high possibility that your adapter is stuffed. Dell have built in a recognition circuitry into the 65w adapters and when that goes, the system will no longer recognize it as a 65w adapter even though it is still putting out 65w. The system then shuts off the battery recharge circuit and to make matters worse it won't even charge the battery when the computer is off. It also speedsteps the processor down to half its speed so everything runs slower. Only option is to stick with a slow computer that can't be used on batteries or buy another ac adapter.

If you do not want to pay $80 for a original adapter directly from dell, there is an alternative choice to get an 3rd party charger, check this link below:

Como resorver error M1004 en una Laptop Dell Inspiron 1521


I am glad to HELP YOU!

Error code "M1004" appears to refer to overheating. Have you checked that all fans in the laptop? Any airway blocked by dust and dirt, etc? Have you tried with the CPU and the heatsink at all? You could try resetting the CPU, clean contact surfaces of the CPU and heat sink, and then apply a thin layer of heatsink compound.


My best regards!
