Question about Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook
My Dell Inspiron 1501 will not turn on. The battery is not reconised so I have to use the adapter to turn it on. I bought a new adapter for it, and it had worked fine until now. My computer will not turn on, or if I do get it to turn on, it turns off randomly.
Have you run diags? press an hold fn key then press the power button. look for any errors, but i suspect that it is a motherboard error

Tips for a great answer:
Remove the battery from its compartment on the side of your Dell Inspiron laptop computer.
Remove the power adapter from its plug on the side of the Dell Inspiron (if your laptop is currently plugged into a wall outlet).
Press down and hold the "Power" button on the laptop for one to two minutes. This will dispel the excess electrical current that is built up inside the laptop.
Put the battery back inside the compartment of your Dell Inspiron.
Plug your power adapter back into the side of the Dell Inspiron. Press "Power." Your laptop computer will now turn on.
hope this helps
