Dude, Call DELL! The computer I am conversing with you is a dell that had crashed! Dell has some of the tech support in the world. They can help you. All you need is the windows registration on the bottom of the computer and you are good to go!

If you don't care about the current files and folders, you'll need to reinstall the OS from the disk. I assume you have it. Pop the CD into the drive and power off the laptop then power it back on. It should boot to the CD and give you the option to reinstall the software. If not, power cycle (off then on again) and press F12 repeatedly as it powers up. This will give you the option of what to boot from. Choose the CD drive and start the install process.
\015\012 If you don't have a disc to reinstall from, your last option is some password recovery software. You can google that for options, but I have nothing to recommend as I've not had occasion to use them.

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
