Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook ?
At an auction sale I bought a new Dell laptop Inspiron1525 Core2 Duo T 7250 which has a three year Dell Warranty. I intend to give it to my Grandson in Australia.It has Intel 3945WLAN Mini-card EUR. Will the laptop work in Australia? Will the warranty operate in Australia?
You do not have the Inspiron 1525 in the dropdown list. Is it obsolete?
No it not obsolete, it's a rather new machine to the market. Well I guess you could say as obsolete as anything else on the market, since most items are already considered obsolete just as soon as they hit the market. The laptop will work fine in Australia. As far as the warranty goes, I'm not sure as to it's coverage in Australia. As long as you register ownership through Dell's support site, he will definitely be able to get the tech support the warranty offers, but the hardware warranty is iffy. Dell is better than most, but their hardware warranties are still on a limited plan and like most they do give a little run around on getting it serviced, especially for major hardware issues. The Inspiron 1525 is a very good machine, and I wouldn't worry too much, if taken care of, this machine will most likely last for years with no major issues, long past the warranty anyway.

I have a Dell Inspiron 1501 and its a little over a year old. It started acting funny about a month ago. It will work fine for about 5 minutes then it goes to a screen with different colored bars and i have to restart it again. I bought a new battery thinking that was the problem but that hasnt solved anything. HELP
Hey there,Colored bars make me think of hardware failure of the 1)screen or the 2)graphics card. Both of these, on a laptop, are going to mean sending it in for repair, out of warranty, and paying their rate, which maybe 150 bucks or more. Now ... Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook

Wireless Switch My laptop is a Presario2100 (not a 2100T). I have had it for just over three years. Naturally, 2 months after the warranty ran out, something stopped working on my computer. My wireless switch will not turn on. It probably isn't a card problem, because it will not even turn on enough to tell me whether or not it senses wireless networks. Instead, the switch itself seems to be broken because I push the button on the front right corner, and absolutely nothing happens. Is ther

I'm trying to set up a Linksys Wireless A G card with an old Gateway Solo 5300 laptop. I use the same card with both a Dell Inspiron 8100 and 1501 laptops without problems. My network is setup using WPA-personal. On the Gateway Solo laptop I'm trying to setup, I can successfully get the the card to work using WEP but not when using WPA-personal.

CPU overheating I was wondering if anyone knew about any cpu overheating problems with the gateway MT3422. I have read several articles on this issue, and wonder if this may be my problem. I noticed that the laptop does get really hot, even with a cooling unit underneath it. The computer is now not wanting to turn on after restarting due to recent updates. I get a power light on after pushing the button a few times, no other lights are on, the CPU fans does turn on and the cd rom does spin. F 12
