Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1521 Notebook ?
Inspiron 1521 won't boot up. fan kicks in then shuts down nothing comes on screen
To fix this all you have to do is if you have a air compressor blow out the dust dont get the air chuck to close to the back, once the dust has been blown out your laptop should load up.. the reason it wont load is a safety thing once dust is out the fan wont over run and there for your laptop should start right up
