This type of problem generally occurs when adoptor stops working and battery goes down. Show first of all check your power adoptor, its working or not, to check-out remove battery and use power adoptor then try to boot. If there is power led on means adoptor is ok otherwise try to reconnect and also check whether the power supply is ok for adoptor. For canfirmation use another adoptor.

If above not working then you can try to these steps:
1. Remove Power connection (Adoptor connection to Laptop).
2. Remove battery.
3. Re-Connect power to laptop.
4. Make switch on.
If above does not work then after step 2 try the followings
A. Press and hold power button for abt 20-30 secs. keep holding on and insert Power connection now if power led get on leave the button. After that it should on.

If all above didn't solve your problem, then its time to take tour of service centre.

Thanks and Good Luck

Vostro 1500 screen blank except for flashing cursor


The good news is that your laptop powers on and you have a display. The bad news is that you laptop is trying to boot up from an OS (operating system software) like XP, Vista, or Win 7. Ether your software is corrupted or you have a problem with the hard drive or hard drive controller.
Press and hold the <Fn> key while powering the system on. This will run the Dell Diagnostics. Another more intense diagnostic program is located on a Dell CD that you should have received with your laptop. Look for one that has "Diagnostics and utilities" listed under the "Contents". You will have to boot from that CD disk. To do this, power on your laptop and tap the <F12> key to bring you to the "One time boot menu". Insert the CD and then select CD/DVD drive and hit <Enter> key. Select the "Run the 32 Bit Dell Diagnostics".
If diagnostics pass then your software is corrupted and needs to be reinstalled.

I have my Dell Vostro 1500 asking for a bios password and i'm not sure if its set to boot from CD. Please help me on how to reset the system to default. I tried opening the computer and yet...


Some laptops can select an alternate boot device when you power up the laptop and then press F10 or F12.
When the laptop first boots up the display will show briefly the Function key you you need to press to go into the BIOS and/or the alternate boot device.

I trying boot my dell vostro 1500 from sd-card on card I heave install Linux but when I run computer and pres F12 I don't see any sd-card to choose too run. Any wane heave idea why it doesn?t work? P.S....


You have to go into your PC and set the Boot options in the Bios setup to look there. Most Bios will only see USB drives abd hard drives,

On the dell to get into the setup you need to press F2 just after turning on the PC.

Vostro doosen't boot from sd-csrd


Maybe if the computer is meant to be bootable from SD then the F12 screen would include the possibility. I think there is no way to boot from SD card.

Dell vostro 1500 will not boot after installing norton systemworks


I would suggest to uninstall the norton systemworks. Because it may be incompatible or harmful for your computer. Try to run the computer in Safe Mode and see if you could perform a System Restore.

Hope it helps. Have a great day!

Operating system is missing is the message shown on my dell


Boot to the F12 menu, see if you can boot to the HDD diagnostics. If not, boot to the Dell Resource CD, run the HDD diagnostics from there. If Diags fail, replace the HDD. If they pass, boot to the Vista DVD, then run a repair of the operating system

Dell vostro was placed on a wet counter. wont boot up


Change the AC adapter. It sounds like there is a dead short in the connector. If that doesn't work and it is still under warranty call dell support and they should be able to send you out a replacement. Just don't mention anything about water.
