Having problems with your Dell InspironTM 1501 Notebook ?

Dell inspiron 1501 will not power up

\015 I was given a laptop and was told that it worked other than the dvd drive would open at times on its on and the battery was dead but it will work off of the ac adapter. When i got it home and plugged it in it will not power up. The light on the laptop where you plug in the ac adapter will start green for about a minute then starts to flash amber and green. If i push the power button you can hear the fan start to run and the light on the dvd drive flashes but nothing appears on the screen. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks \015

Answers :

Please find a way of getting a replacement power pack and a new battery that is all you need to get the laptop working.

About the dvd drive, it is only a program control fault. You will need the system restore disc to restore to factory setting. I experienced it once on my HP Laptop and that was the solution recommended to me for $70.

Good luck.
