Having problems with your Dell Inspiron® 1501 (N11157) PC Notebook ?

Inspiron 1501 won't turn on

\015 Okay--I've found, and tried, every solution I could for this problem, but maybe someone knows something I've missed.\015\012\015\012I was using my laptop when it suddenly froze. \302\240Tried ctl/alt/del but nothing happened. \302\240So I powered down. \302\240When 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. \302\240Then nothing--black screen. \302\240My laptop battery is nearly dead, so I am always plugged in.\015\012\015\012This seems like a common thing with the Inspirons, and here are some of the suggestions I tried:\015\012\015\012I removed all power sources, held down power button for 30 sec to reset system and tried to boot up again--same issue\015\012\015\012I unplugged the screen closed sensor, thinking the unit might be thinking it was asleep (lid closed), because that what it acts like. \302\240No luck.\015\012\015\012Removed memory--and reset--nothing.\015\012\015\012Replaced button battery on mobo--and Voila, she sprung back to life--but only for about 2 hours and now same problem.\015\012\015\012I have tried with battery, without battery, ac cord, no ac cord, switched battery and memory from working unit (my son has same computer) and no luck with anything except for the short lived button battery success.\015\012\015\012Any ideas would be appreciated, or I guess she goes into the shop next week.\015\012\015\012Thank you!!\015

\015\012I suspect the hard drive may be on its way out. unfortunately you can't see the screen.

It sounds like you tried all possible solutions. The only thing left is to remove the hard drive. Also try disconnecting the LCD display by unplugging the LCD connector from the motherboard. If the laptop still doesn’t power on then your motherboard is probably defective and needs to be replaced. If it’s still under warranty Dell will replace it.
