Preferred Solution: Dell XPS M1530 screen, motherboard

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I'm working with a Dell Xps M1530 that I was told had a black screen issue. I have booted and find the screen comes up normal except at the bottom. Along the bottom, the screen shows rays of light extending upward. As you can tell the system is Win 7 Prof. I am wondering if replacing the inverter should take care of this or would the screen be necessary to correct the problem? I believe the inverter is failing when it gets hot, causing the black screen issue and the light ray appearance may be related to it as well but I don't want to replace the one item and need two. I also don't want money to be spent if it isn't needed.
I tried to attach a photo but at 1.87mb, it is too large.

Upload the pic somehow. Photobucket, imgur, etc.

Seems to me like the actual screen is damaged and you're seeing backlight bleed.

Hi everyone

In need of help. Started up my laptop and I am greeted by a blank screen, though the machine goes through the motions of starting up. When connected to an external monitor all works fine, and I have tried changing the inverter, but no luck.

Ran a diagnostic check, and receive the following:

Error Code 0321
Msg: Error Code 2000-0321
Msg: LCD EDID - Unable to access EDID EEPROM

Would anyone be able to restore my sanity, and offer some words of wisdom/guidance?

Would be much appreciated.

Many Thanks

Hello, Welcome to TSF.
I'm nasdaq and will be helping you.

If you can please print this topic it will make it easier for you to follow the instructions and complete all of the necessary steps.

Please download and run the programs in the order listed below.

Download TDSSKiller.zip

>>> Double-click on TDSSKiller.exe to run the application.Click on the Start Scan button and wait for the scan and disinfection process to be over.
If an infected file is detected, the default action will be Cure, click on Continue

If a suspicious file is detected, the default action will be Skip, click on Continue

If you are asked to reboot the computer to complete the process, click on the Reboot Now button. A report will be automatically saved at the root of the System drive ((usually C:\) in the form of "TDSSKiller.[Version]_[Date]_[Time]_log.txt" (for example, C:\TDSSKiller.2.2.0_20.12.2009_15.31.43_log.txt).

"It will not log into Normal mode, it requires safe mode every-time and it works fine there"...
This tells us that a Windows driver is a fault. Can you perform a system or factory restore of the laptop?

I have totally disassembled this laptop, replaced the entire LCD, and the power inverter, still all I get when it boots is a black screen, sometimes it kind of gets darker and you can see the black image split in the middle? Although I can hit FN and LCD to an external monitor and that works fine?

Im not sure what to replace next? Could it be the LCD cable or is it most likely a bad mobo?

Are the video channels separate, the LCD from the external monitor port?


Any help would be great, as this is driving me crazy!

It is true that nVidia has always claimed that only some of the chips were defective.  Other sources claim they're all defective and that nVidia never redesigned the chip as would be required to fix the problem.  
With a system that is 4+ years old it's likely impossible to differentiate a failure due to the design flaws in this chip from normal age-induced mortality.

I have a Dell XPS M1530. When it is plugged in, it seems to get kind of hot. The fans are still running, I can feel the air coming out and I can hear the fans running. I blew out the vent anyway. The real pain in the butt is that it will just shut off sometimes. I have not noticed the issue when it is not plugged in. It gives me no warning just POW! .... it's off. When I turn it back on it gives no indication of a bad shut down or anything. Sometimes it says that status monitor 3 has stopped working but, only sometimes. Any ideas?

Hi guys, I was just wondering, if anyone knew about a newer firmware or driver software that I could find for the Optical Drive of my Dell XPS M1530.

The problem is that I'm testing Windows 7 SP1 (V 1.53, btw). Yeah... Yeah... I know... Since is not an official release I can't hope for it to work or have them available, etc... etc...

But, I felt a considerable speed up in my system, and almost all bugs and slowdowns that my Win 7 64 bit had, were resolved, or were not presented.

I really need a driver that can actually support it, if exists, if not, well... got to wait for the main release... ()

This is the optical device:

Happy New Year!

OK, I have a 2-3 year old Dell XPS M1530 laptop, which is crashing.

It was running Vista Home Premium 32-bit OEM originally, but I upgraded it to Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit Retail some time ago with no problems.

Since then I had problems with the internal Intel WiFi 4965AGN disconnecting and dropping packets, so having tried upgrading the driver, I replaced it with an Intel WiFi 5300. So I suspect the 5300 is the likely problem.

Let me know what you find, and thanks in advance.

I have an XPS M1530. It was displaying the message about battery can continue to charge but is reaching the end of its usable life - for about a year. I never operate the laptop without the AC adapter. I went to turn it on and it turned on and then immediately shut off. Then the AC light turned off. Now if I unplug the AC adapter from the computer, unplug the AC adapter from the wall and plug it back in the light will come on. Then as soon as I plug the AC adapter into the laptop the light goes off. Laptop does nothing/completely dead. I have 2 Dell AC adapters and both behave the same. I have tried it with and without the battery and same issue. Do you think a new battery will fix it? Any other suggestions? Thanks.

Hey,
Had a Dell XPS M1530 since around February last year and was working fine up till now. Left my computer in sleep mode last night (which i do fairly often) but when i got home today and tried to turn it on (by pressing the power button) the button only flashed on for about 3 seconds and there was no other response although i could hear hard drive whirring away.
After trying another 2 times I restarted computer (by holding in power button) and then tried to turn on. However i keep getting the same result of the blue flashing on for three seconds then turning back off.
Have tried taking out the battery out and putting back in and starting the computer with only power cord but same result every time.
My warranty with Dell has run out so i can't just send back. Any ideas?
 

A:Dell XPS M1530 won't boot

As an update I tried reseating RAM and trying with only 2GB stick then with only 1GB stick but no improvement.
Found on Dell support holding 'fn' and power button runs a quick diagnostic with flashy LED's as codes. Got the first one flashing and the others solid which according to website means :

"The Microcontroller is handing control of the system to the processor. This code will persist if there is no processor detected"

Which i believe i'm correct in assuming means either my CPU or my motherboard is stuffed? In which case about my only option is finding the cheapest person to repair/replace it...?

A:Dell XPS m1530 problems

This could be one of several problems, but assuming you can't get to your Vista desktop anymore, (is that right?) when you power on the pc, tap away at the F8 key, quickly, and straight after pressing power button.
Do you see a blackscreen with white text? If yes, scroll down with cursor key to the line 'Use last known good configuration' and press 'enter'.
But without knowing any more, your problem could be, a faulty RAM board, (5 minutes to swap in a new one, and not expensive), or a failing Hard drive, not good, or other main circuit board problem. It's not so likely to be the battery though, but try the F8 key (Safe mode) idea first.

Has anyone who has a Dell XPS M1530 (laptop) installed the 64 bit version of Vista? If so, which drivers do you need?

My graphics card is nVidia geforce 8600m gt

I definitely know that a driver is required for this graphics card, but I'm not entirely sure where to find it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If anyone has any other driver information with regards to the XPS M1530 then please make it known.

Hi,

I am experiencing random BSOD's on my Dell XPS M1530 (T8300,4GB,8600M GT 256MB DDR3). The freezes happen while gaming or doing normal stuff (surfing the web, listening music etc.) I tried to verify what the problem is but couldn't identify the cause. I'm using Windows 7 x64 Professional which was freshly installed a week ago. I installed all up-to-date drivers that could be found on the net. The freezes occured even earlier, before the fresh install. I attach the dump from the BSOD which occured today. I hope you can help me find what the problem is.

This one is pretty straight foward, it is due to your intel wifi driver. I would download and install fresh copy of it

Hello

when I turn on laptop see this black screen !

I hear windows 7 start sound and sure windows load

I test by VGA cable with another monitor and see black screen at another monitor too

I think GPU down !

Do you think same ?

what Graphic adapter I can put for Dell XPS M1530 again? ( cheaper )

Thanks a lot

You cant replace graphics cards for laptops. But I may have a solution. I would have first thought that this was a screen issue, but when you hooked it up to another monitor that idea was gone. I get this every once and a while when a graphics drivers isnt that great. What graphics adapter do you currently have?

A:DELL XPS M1530 Random BSOD

These are all STOP 0x124 errors. As such, it's the CPU telling Windows what the error is - and that just doesn't provide any significant information for us to work with. The errors are usually either a hardware problem or a compatibility issue.

Also, The Windows Debugging Tools aren't able to access symbols for your operating system files (in particular NTOSKRNL.EXE / NTKRNLMP.EXE / NTKRNLPA.EXE / NTKRPAMP.EXE) from the Microsoft Symbol Server - so that makes debugging them difficult if not impossible.

Please do the following:
- activate/validate the Windows installation at http://www.microsoft.com/genuine
- run sfc.exe /scannow to replace any problem files
- open a support incident with Microsoft to see if they can fix the missing symbols issue ( http://support.microsoft.com/ph/14019 )
- If that doesn't fix it, then wipe the hard drive and reinstall Windows
- don't use "leaked"/torrent builds

I'd suggest uninstalling all traces of Nero 7 - it's not compatible with Win7 according to this site: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/com...ero%207&page=3

Also, please remove or update these older drivers that were loaded at the time of the crash. Don't use Windows Update or the Update drivers function of Device Manager.
Please use the following instructions to locate the most currently available drivers to replace the one's that you uninstall OR remove:

Hi I ve got a XPS M Vista Dell crash up on booting M1530 XPS SP and I have recently experienced some problems This morning the screen would remain black while the laptop made the usual start up sounds and then did nothing The power button remained lit After some googling I had found a solution heating the gpu I found the info in a thread on this forum So I opened up my laptop but I was not able to remove the heat sink a screw that just wouldn t open so I Dell XPS M1530 crash on booting up determined through pictures where the gpu was and heated the area of the heat sink under which the gpu lies with a hair dryer I did this till the area above the gpu was too hot to touch Afterwards I started my laptop up and I didn t have the black screen it just booted up as usual However before I got past the dell screen it crashed I assumed it was overheating but after waiting some time I booted up again and got past the dell screen and had a boot up screen asking me to do a diagnostic and recovery thingie because there might be a software or hardware failure It proceeded to do this but after some time during the test it crashed again After booting it immediately back up it crashed before I got past the Dell screen After waiting a long time I tried again and this time it got further through the diagnostic test but eventually crashed again Now when I try the load bar on the dell screen goes extremely slowly and the laptop crashes before it gets past that stage it crashes slowly if I didn t try to start it before rapidly if I just experienced a crash Sorry for the long post but does anybody have an idea what I can do about this nbsp

heated the area of the heat sink under which the gpu lies with a hair dryer. I did this till the area above the gpu was too hot to touch.Click to expand...

Where did you get the advise to do this You should have come here first for some honest advise.

Heat is not a good thing for any electronic device. What you have done may have finished off a processor that was already half baked. I doubt if there is a way to recover from this other than replacing the GPU.

When you quote the GPU are you sure you are not confusing this with CPU. As far as I can see from your sytems manual, on the Dell site, the gahics card has no heat sink so you probably cooked your CPU. The heat sink is there for just one reason, to get rid of heat.

These crashes were caused by your network, and wifi drivers. I would reinsatll a fresh copy and run a system file check
to do that type cmd in search?right click and run as admin>sfc /scannow (not the space between the sfc and "/")

Let us know if you need help with this

Hi,
I just got a motherboard replacement for my DELL XPS M1530 (not replaced from DELL) after the previous graphics card was cooked.
It had been three years since the machine was working fine when I started giving some problems and I had to get the motherboard replaced.
The garphics are fine now but sometimes it reaches 100% CPU Usage point and the fan starts running more than often.
During this period I noticed, I am usually not performing any intensive tasks( normal tasks such as browser etc.)
What could be the reason for the high CPU usage?
 

A:High CPU Usage (DELL XPS M1530)

One way to find out is to open the task manager,click on the process tab and look down the list to see which processes are using the cpu power.Then google that process,it is of course possible that what you find is a windows process using the cpu. Antivirus programs and firewalls can cause this to happen.You often have to use a process of elimination to find the cause.

I have a Dell M1530 running Vista Home Premium 32-bit. My touchpad \ mouse has stopped working. The pointer just sits in the middle of the screen. I even tried to use a USB mouse, that didn't work either. I got the newest driver for it from Dell, installed it & still nothing. When I check for it in the Device Manager the Mouse \ Touchpad has a yellow ! on it. Checking the driver for it, it says windows can't load the driver cause it is corrupt or missing (code 39). I can barely navigate around on it! Please help me! I just want my mouse \ touchpad to work again! I don't want to have to do a complete reinstall, I'm not that smart & would probably mess it up.

A:Dell M1530 Touchpad / Mouse

Hi, Any issue with the Touchpad driver or hardware would have no connection to the USB mouse problem. The problem if both are not working sound like a windows issue.With the USB mouse plugged in does it show up the Device Manager? It should show up and load drivers that are provided by Windows. Have you tested the USB ports to see if anything else plugged into them is working?Have You tried System Restore to go back in Time to when the Mouse / Touchpad worked? System Restore should be accessed by going to Start, All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, System Restore.Our Tutorial on using it is hereWindows Vista System Restore GuideIntroduction to System RestoreSystem Restore is a system recovery feature of Windows that creates snapshots, or restore points, of the state of your computer at various intervals or before you perform a certain task. These restore points can then be used to restore your computer back to the state it was in when they were taken. When these restore points are created, and restored, the only files affected are the Windows Registry, programs, and system files. Your data such as spreadsheets, documents, images, and music remain untouched between restores.You may be wondering why you would want to restore your computer to a previous point. The reason being that there comes a time in every computer user's life that they install a new program, install a new driver, or just turn on the computer and find it no longer works as it did the day before. You have no idea why, can't resolve the problems, and are left with two options. You can either backup your data, reinstall the operating system, and then reinstall all your applications or you can restore your computer to a previous snapshot in the hopes that the problems will now be gone. By using System Restore to restore your computer to a previously known working state you can save considerable time or money compared to reinstalling the entire computer.Good LuckRoger

A:Flash bios for Dell XPS m1530

You can't flash the BIOS on a machine that won't post, and that's unlikely to be the source of your problem anyway.
You seem to be saying it won't boot from a CD/DVD.
You could try re-seating the hard drive, but this isn't looking good.
Have there been other, previous problems? Have you ever dropped or kicked this machine? Have you tried booting with the battery removed?

Hi I have a Dell XPS M1530. Sometimes it boots, other times Windows appears to be loading but the screen is black. When it boots I am informed that the battery needs replacing. I have no problem replacing the batteries but I am not sure this is the solution. If the laptop is plugged into a mains supply I would expect it to boot regardless of whether the batteries needs replacing or is this not the case?

I had to reinstall WinXP on my Dell XPS M1530, and now Windows doesn't detect the bluetooth unit. The symbol in the line with power buttons etc is lighted though. I have software from before, but could only copy, not install it. What I find works only in Vista. Broadcom's own bluetooth software does neither detect a bluetooth nor work without that. In the control panel there is no icon for bluetooth, even though Windows help suggests exactly that.

Does anyone know how to do that? It worked before, but now I can't figure out how, even after hours of googling...

If they are, temporarily remove the device to ensure the camera is not the cause of the crashes.

sptd.sys is listed and loaded in your drivers list, this is the SCSI Pass Through Direct Host - Daemon Tools (known BSOD issues with Win7). Remove this driver with the following tool: DuplexSecure - Downloads

If Daemon Tools is installed (I don't see the driver listed, but just in case) remove Daemon Tools ASAP as well.

Hi,
I have a Dell XPS M1530 which I installed Windows 7 Professional (SP1) x86 from MSDN.

Most times when the laptop is going to sleep from a power management sleep after x minutes, or closing the lid, this happens:
- The system appears to hang. There's no hard disk activity and nothing recorded in the event viewer around that time.
- The screen is black and doesn't wake up
- Capslock/numlock don't light up when toggled

And I have to hold the power button to turn the system off. When I turn it back on there's no evidence of a bugcheck or error in any of the system event logs.

What's the best way of starting to debug this issue and track down what's causing this?

Thanks!

Hi breathing ,

My name is Sukanya and I work for the Social Media and Community Team at Dell.
In regards to teh issue you have reported ,I suggest you update the system BIOS and teh video driver once .If that does not fix we can try reinstakkin Windows 7 once again just to rule out the OS .If that alos do not fix the issue ,it could be a hard ware fault and a video card replacement may be required.
I am attaching the link from teh bios and the graphics card driver.

I wasn't quite sure where to post this, so I'll try here. I have installed W7 RC and the Dell MD BluRay software and it works except it wraps the video around the screen. IOW the left side of the video starts about 1/3 of the way from the left side of the screen and the right of the video wraps to the left side of the screen.

I have tried Arcsoft TMT3 and PowerDVD and the video is fine, but no sound from TMT3 and PowerDVD spiked my CPU to 100% 5 times watching a movie yesterday. Had to completely shut down the program and restart and then it would run fine for a while.

If anyone has any suggestions or knows of a Dell upadte, I would be gratefull.

Most likely possible. I installed Win10 on a Dell Studio 17/1747 a couple of days ago that had Win7. Have also installed it on 2 Dell Inspiron 15 Notebooks, just finished one. One thing to watch for is perhaps the need for updated/Win10 compatible drivers for Wireless Network and, if you have it, Bluetooth Wireless [both of my 15s needed it] but check support.dell.com with your Service Tag to be sure.

Hi,

I recently ran into some computer trouble on my laptop and was hoping to receive some input as to what the problem may be. For about one day now, my laptop, which is a Dell XPS M1530, has been cutting off on random intervals (sometimes on the order of minutes to as much as an hour), and I cannot seem to figure out why. What we know is this:

-The fan is still fully functional
-The computer is not overheating
-No viruses detected after doing a scan (we thought that viruses may be a possibility)
-The power supply is functional
-The motherboard is obviously not damaged, as the computer can still work

I would greatly appreciate any assistance!

Thanks,

~Trav.~

I had to replace the motherboard on this laptop and it all worked fine with Windows 7 home prem. The only issue was not saving the date and time on cold boot. When I put it in sleep it does fine on wakeup. I tore it down again since the cmos battery is very inaccessable. The battery checked fine(3.2v) The only error I get on boot is: "RTC is fixed- time and date may be wrong"

Note that you may even need to remove one of them, as by design they both operate on the same principle and will clash against each other when handling the same resources.

A:XPS m1530 grey screen

Could be a power supply issue, a failing hard drive, one memory module failing, or a video graphics card failing. Not likely a driver issue.
That XPS m1530 model has a very touchy motherboard which has a history of problems... failing memory sockets, etc. It also has heating problems with that cooling screen to the CPU fills up with lint, dust, dirt, and fiber... the resulting overheating seems to speed along the failure of various components. The power supply has performance issues if you have a powerfull video graphics card.
Give us the brand and the build date on the hard drive... and the model number of the video graphics card.
I am betting on a video card failure and the hard drive failing... if it is a Maxtor, Samsung, or Hitachi

I assume you replaced a hard drive on a DELL with Windows 98 with a hard drive with Windows 98 from a Gateway. You can't do that unless you reinstall Windows 98.
I would like to suggest, when you swap parts between computers, that you swap one part at a time. When there is a failure, you will know which part is the culprit.

A:Black screen problem - new motherboard - Dell Vostro 3550

It's probably an Activation Problem. If it's a new Motherboard, it's new Hardware, even if it is the exact motherboard you replaced.

If you can pull up Task Manager from the black screen (If you have a mouse but nothing else) - Then you can stick your install disk into the Optical Drive and run Setup.exe- This will fix any activation problems. Run an In-Place Install which means just choose "Upgrade" from the choice of either upgrade or fresh install. I've had to do this twice.

Without any complaints toward how my laptop has been performing lately, I closed it today (something I don't usually do) and it went to sleep I assume. I came back later and the screen was blank. I held the power button to turn it off and tried restarting. The quickbar lights did their usual routine of cascading blue lights, but the screen remained unchanged, as in 'off'. Start up is accompanied by the usual humming of I guess the hard drive, but after a couple seconds the humming gets much quieter and remains at that low level. All the while nothing happens on screen.

Anyway, any suggestions? I looked around the internet briefly but could not find any solutions that seemed to be applicable to me. Maybe the laptop monitor somehow became disconnected?

Also, I'm not sure whether this is the correct sub-forum, the laptop was purchased with Vista x32 and I eventually upgraded to w7 x64

Only info I have is that it has the Centrino sticker on the palm rest of the case, and I also have the service tag, but that doesn't seem to give me much information from what I've found.

I've taken the motherboard out of the thing and looked it over, but no luck, as I don't see the model number on it.

Will someone please tell me how I'm supposed to figure out the motherboard model number so I can get a new one?

I bought my Dell Vostro 3800 ST almost 2 years ago, sadly I didn't really do my research before I bought it, and it turns out, card that came with it wasn't really great for gaming and it's nearing the end of it's life.
So I'm planning to buy proper card, but my tower is waaay to slim to fit in it comfortably.
So my question is, will I be able to take my motherboard to another, non-Dell case? If so, what type of case would be good? I did try to find online, what type of motherboard it is, but if there's an answer to that question, I can't find or understand it.
I'd be grateful for any help provided :)

A:Will my motherboard from Dell Vostro 3800 ST fit into non-Dell case?

It's more or less a micro-ATX board so it will likely fit a standard case.  That said, wiring the power switch, hard drive LEDs, etc. will be difficult - they're not standard and it may be a lot of trial and error to make work.

However, the sound doesn't disappear when using other sound applications such as Skype.

I need to know if you are absolutely sure you removed all traces of the virus - if you had the help of a forum they would have given you the "all clear". Have you tried starting in safe mode at all?

When I powered up my new dell xps 15 9550 this morning, (bought less than 1 week ago) I had a message from Dell in the bottom right hand corner of the screen saying there was a firmware update notification. I clicked on this and proceeded to update the firmware.
since this, I have been suffering from the screen going blank and the only way to get it back on again is to switch off the laptop completely!
I have restored the bios to factory settings (F2) and have also tried disabling the nvdia video card but still have the same problem of the intermittent screen going black.
At the same time, if I am listening to music, the music also switches off, so it doesn't appear to be just a video card problem.
It all appears to point to this firmware update?!
any help would be much appreciated.

thanks

A:Dell XPS 15 9550 screen going black intermittently after Dell firmware install this morning help!

I have the same problem:

I initially reported that my XPS 15 locks-up displaying an all white display, however, I have since noticed it locking-up with a black display or gray display. Recycling power is the only way to get the computer working again. Prior to an automated firmware update, my XPS had been working fine. If you find a solution, please post it. I will do the same.

Best first step would be to beg or borrow a monitor and plug it in as an external. That would tell you if you have a monitor fault or not.Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Inspiron 15R SE 7520
When I attempt to start my laptop it goes to the Dell logo screen and will not boot Windows 8. Any suggestions?
I've had the computer less than a month and if I have to restore the system completely it will not cause much of a problem.

Thanks for the help in advance!

A:Dell Laptop w/ Windows 8 won't boot past dell logo screen

Hello Univers789,
Re-installing windows is the last resort. So before doing that, you can try the steps mentioned below which might fix the issue. 1. Restart the laptop and start tapping the F2 key at the Dell logo for enter the BIOS. 2. Navigate to the “Advanced” menu. 3. Change the SATA operation/selection in BIOS from Intel Smart Response to AHCI. 4. Press F10 to save changes and exit. 5. Reboot the system. 6. Go back into the BIOS by tapping the F2 key and change the SATA operation/selection in BIOS from AHCI to Intel Smart Response. 7. Save changes and exit by pressing the F10 key. 8. Reboot the system and it should boot normally into Windows. In case the above steps don’t fix the issue, run the Pre-Boot System Assessment (PSA / ePSA) Diagnostics. Run the test and check if gives any error code. Note down the error code and update me with the same, would let you know the next course of action. Please write back with results.

Whenever I boot my machine, it brings up the Dell screen and hangs for a very long time, 1 minute or more, then it boots up apparently normally. However, when it does boot, sometimes my cd-burner is not detected, and is not available in my computer- windows explorer., or listed in the device manager. Equally at times, my second hard drive does not make it into the mix after the os loads. What could be causing this problem?

How are your drives hooked up? (what's on which IDE channel).

Hi GuysI recently purchased a second hand XPS 13 and everything has been running fine until this morning. I ran ADWCleaner for general maintenance, the machine rebooted and loaded back into Windows without issue. Shortly after, the laptop started beeping over and over again. I tried rebooting only to find that the laptop won't load Windows and doesn't load past the Dell splash screen. There is no beeping during bootup. Also, I am load to setup or boot selection screens after pressing  F2 or F12. The laptop appears to register if I have selected one of those two options but will not load after the Dell screen progress bar has reached 100%I have stumbled across a couple of posts on the internet suggesting that the issue maybe motherboard related ?Does anybody have suggestions on what I can do to resolve this issue ?Thanks in advance.

Hi CAPTAINSPRINGS,
What is the exact system model? Are you using an original Dell OEM Adapter?
Download the service manual - http://dell.to/1n3X2po - enter the service tag and download the manual and disconnect the adapter and battery and press and hold the power button for 30 seconds and try powering on the system with adapter only / battery only and check.
Based on your system model, check if you are able to remove and reseat the memory modules if possible.
Disconnect the HDD and check if the system goes past the Dell logo.
Try the onboard diagnostics - press and hold the fn key + power button to turn on the system and it should initiate the diagnostics. Check for any possible beeps codes.
If nothing works, then I would suspect a faulty motherboard.
If the system is under warranty, Please click my DELL-username and write me a private conversation with the service tag and your contact details(Name, Phone#, Address and Email). If there is no warranty, then you could contact our team to get a quote for a paid service call - http://dell.to/1vnT6CQ
Let us know if you have any other queries.

This computer was just continually rebooting itself so I was preparing to try to get into safe mode or something. Now however, it just boots to a Dell screen and stayst there with the blue globe with the word Dell on top of it and www. dell.com on the bottom of the screen. I removed power from the machine for a few minutes, and tried booting again to the same situation. Has been running now for 15 minutes with no change, just the dell screen. All advice welcome!

Hi all I have a spare computer from work but I do not know the password to log in and so would like to wipe it Ergo I decided to try and boot the computer skips splash BIOS Dimension Dell Dell screen and 3000 using Dell Dimension 3000 skips Dell splash screen and BIOS a USB thumb Dell Dimension 3000 skips Dell splash screen and BIOS drive with Ubuntu on it so as to wipe the windows partition on the hard drive and then install Ubuntu The computer boots normally to the Windows XP login screen When I press F or F there is no display output I have tried this with a variety of monitors and with two D-SUB cables one at a time These are the Samsung nbsp LT B EW LG nbsp EA V-P and Dell Rev A None of them show either the Dell splash screen or the BIOS screen I have tried pressing F and F at strategic intervals every seconds but still there is no display output I also know that I was able to access the BIOS on the same computer a few months ago but I forgot which displays I used then - I had to wait for permission to wipe the hard drive I have also looked up this problem in a number of other places and found that this is supposedly due to an incompatibility of some kind with the monitor However I am not sure as to how I might go about fixing this issue as I do not have any other monitors or cables which work with the Dell - all my other cables are either HDMI or other sorts of cable which do not plug in to the Dell If there is a way to use the hard drive and wipe it without accessing the BIOS I would also be grateful to hear about that too

Since a few weeks ago my microphone has only been working when tilting the screen forward I saw a previous discussion http answers microsoft com en-us windows forum windows vista-pictures microphone-not-working-that-in-installed-in-my f e d - bee- - Dell Unhelpful Microphone Problem 7537 Inspiron - Dell Screen Tilting Hardware afc- f b a f auth where people have reported similar problems Although my laptop was still under warranty when I reported the problem to Dell they proceeded to sending me an onsite technician with a Dell Inspiron 7537 Microphone Hardware Tilting Screen Problem - Dell Unhelpful repair microphone Dell Inspiron 7537 Microphone Hardware Tilting Screen Problem - Dell Unhelpful part who said that he could not replace just the microphone because I had a touchscreen you would think Dell would have checked to send the right part then a refurbished new screen that did not work at all on my computer and then refused to solve the problem by arguing that my system was no longer under warranty which it was not by the time they finally sent the non working screen and I called back to ask for another one to be sent mdash it was all problems from their side Wondering if anyone has had a similar problem and if they were able to fix it themselves as now my microphone is not working at all not even when I tilt the screen I have also noticed the same problem for the touch screen It only works when the screen is tilted forward and I am afraid that like the microphone it will reach a point of no return It seems to me that there is some faulty wiring from the screen components into the base Any help would be much appreciated
