Yea if possible try to check if the monitor cable that is connecting the monitor to the motherboard on he laptop is lose. Then give your laptop's video card drivers an update. If that doesn't help then it could be something physical wrong with the video card. Or something physical wrong with the monitor controller board. You'll just have to isolate the problem to find the reason for the issue.

Dell inspiron 1501 wont trun on


There are a couple of things you should try:

Try booting with the battery out, check the power supply does it have a solid green led?

Remove both memory chips and try booting with just a single chip.

Any noises, led blinking, etc?

The more info you give me the quicker I can help.

Dell Inspiron 1501 10/100 network port not working. I have installed driver and have known good cable in port. Worked until 2 weeks ago. Lights don't blink, onboard LAN turned on in BIOS.


Sounds like a failed NIC.

Things to try:
  1. Flash the BIOS to current version if not already done.
  2. Reset BIOS Defaults
  3. If NIC still doesn't work, try a system restore to a time when it worked.
  4. If that fails, most likely a hardware failure.

Inspiron 1501 cpu upgrade problem


Did you check the AMD site for compatibility? If they are, you could have a bad chip, it could have been mishandled or inserted incorrectly. Visual inspection first for burns, contaminated or bent conductors. Static discharge will kill cpus.

Blank Screen and blinking light


I was using my laptop when it suddenly froze. Tried ctl/alt/del but nothing happened. So I powered down. When I tried to power it back up, the power light comes on, the lock lights blink twice, the fan powers up then down, and the dvd drive clicks on and off. Then nothing--black screen. My laptop battery is nearly dead, so I am always plugged in.
This seems like a common thing with the Inspirons, and here are some of the suggestions I tried:
I removed all power sources, held down power button for 30 sec to reset system and tried to boot up again--same issue
I unplugged the screen closed sensor, thinking the unit might be thinking it was asleep (lid closed), because that what it acts like. No luck.
Removed memory--and reset--nothing.
Replaced button battery on motherboard, now same problem.
