Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook ?

I HAVE (4) 1501 ALL ARE DOWN, 1- SAYS CAN NOT FINE OPERATING SYSTEMS, 1- SAYS DISCARD ALL MEMORY


Answers :

For the one where the operating system is down, start it up @Dell logo press Ctrl and F11 and try factory restore, this may cure it....if not you will need to get hold of a disk etc\015\012
\015\012for the one that says discard all memory, (I advise anti static wrist bands be worn when handling any components, turn off and remove battery) first i would check the correct memory is in it, you may need to research though i think 512MB-533MHz DDR2-533 PC2-4200, 200p SODIMM, 1.8v (is the correct one)\015\012If theres more than one stick try them one at a time\015\012make sure they are seated correctly and free from dust or visable damage\015\012try return the bios (usually entered by f1 del etc instructions on screen at boot) to default settings save and try\015\012If all fails then the memory could be dead\015\012
\015\012hope this helps a little
