Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook ?

Dell Inspiron 1501 won't power on

\015 Hi, ok, so I'm having a problem with my Dell laptop. It's been running pretty hot lately and I've made the mistake of leaving it on overnight (I know, I'm an idiot). Anyway, I woke up this morning to it doing next to nothing. When you press the power on button, it acts as though it's about to start up, but then gets quiet...nothing appears on the screen and the only signs of life are the power light being on, the caps lock light being on, and the scroll lock button light flashing constantly. I'm wondering if the overheating just blew out the fan or battery or something. Any ideas on what went wrong/how to fix it? Thanks in advance.\015

Answers :

I would Go out to the dell site again and choose the chat option. Put in your service tag and ask the rep that comes on the line. If I was 100% wrong - the rep will be able to give you part numbers for the parts that need to be replaced.

Sounds like you have a defective logic board now, if dell doesn't want to replace it under warranty, there are laptop repair places that do it, but you have to have to weigh your options with buying a new laptop, repair could be up to 50% of what your's is worth as a 2nd hand laptop. if you're extremely tech savy you can try to do the replacement yourself, there are guides if you use search engines i'm sure something will show up for this or a similar model, mobo will be on ebay.
