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've already contacted Dell, and they tried some things, but nothing worked to resolve the issue. The keyboard is acting crazy. I can be typing along just fine (any software that allows me to type), and suddenly the letters I am typing will insert themselves somewhere else on the screen--either in the middle of a previous line of text, or even in a box such as the font size; and/or the window in which I am typing will suddenly disappear (minimized, as if I had clicked on the minimize icon). Any ideas what this could even be related to?

I have Windows XP Pro, SP3. This problem does not happen with my external keyboard/mouse.

I am trying to fix a Dell Inspiron 1525 that has a keyboard not working. Most keys work, but some do not work. I ordered another keyboard on ebay, but exactly the same keys would not work. What exactly would be the cause of this and is there any fix. Thanks for any suggestions.

I have not Dell Keyboard working 1525 Inspiron a Dell Inspiron Yes I know it is a very old model but it has served me just fine over the last few years until very recently when some of the keys are failing There was a loud almost constant buzzing sound in my laptop every time I worked on it so I took it to the repair shop where the engineer told me it is a problem with the fan So he removed the keyboard to open and check the make of Dell Inspiron 1525 Keyboard not working the fan and said a replacement fan will need to be ordered While I am waiting for that to be done he put the keyboard back in its place but some keys on it are not working I came across the following posted here more than years ago by Dell Inspiron 1525 Keyboard not working the user HYLBJTO I am reproducing it below because the problem I am facing with the keyboard is exactly the same as described by this user and the suggestion given to him by someone to fix the problem did not work from what I understand quot I was reading an expired thread about issues with certain keys not working on a Dell Inspiron I have experienced what seems like the same problem Certain keys do not work - but not the same ones as those in the older thread w d etc for me here s the strange part If I do not screw down the keyboard and hold it up slightly the problem disappears I thought it might have something to do with pressure on the keyboard but I could not duplicate the problem by applying pressure to the back of the keyboard However if it is screwed down tight to the plate it sits on those same keys do not work I tried putting pieces of paper between the keyboard and the plate it sits on and got mixed results SO I m thinking this could be some kind of electromagnetic interference Anyone have any thoughts here The problem absolutely goes away if I hold the keyboard even th of an inch above the plate it sits on quot -- HYLBJTO May Can anyone help me understand what could be the possible issue with the keyboard keys I read on this expired link https forums techguy org threads dell-inspiron- -keyboard-not-working page- where a user mentioned having problems with their inspiron keyboard only to be told at a much later stage by their technician i guess that the problem was not with the keyboard but motherboard Do you think this could be the case with my laptop also Does that also explain the buzzing sound which acc to what I read on several online posts is one of the indications of the hard drive failing Needless to say I am seeking answers here because the repair shop guy has so far been more destructive than constructive in fixing my laptop Can anyone please help share some insights on the above issues It will be a GREAT help thank you nbsp

Sometimes, you need to replace the router.
Sometimes, you can call your service provider and ask them to take a look on line to see if the subscription needs to be refreshed.
But often, all that is needed (despite the fact that it is a lot of work) is to uninstall your existing system, then reboot, and reinstall everything.
You might also find success by looking at your device manager in Windows to see if you have any grey, red, or yellow flags by any related device. That may show you have a permanent hardware failure if you cannot restore it, then you are off to the store or your provider for a new cable modem or router.

I've recently had a few problems with my Dell Inspiron Laptop. It is plugged in to the AC adapter, but when I check the battery status I get a message saying '4% available (plugged in, not charging)'. This means that I cannot work on my laptop unless it is plugged in. The battery light on my laptop flickers a dim blue colour. I also don't want to buy a new battery for it to not work in my laptop either.

It also seems to get really hot when it is plugged in, and occasionally it will switch off unexpectedly. I'm guessing the reason the battery won't charge may be something to do with the motherboard and over-heating.

Any suggestions on what I can do to fix this problem?
Probably my own fault for buying a Dell...Haha!

I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 Laptop with Windows Vista Basic.  Today after plugging in a headphone set both the speaker and the headphone sound stopped working.  I have not changed any audio settings but checked them anyway and nothing was turned off or muted that I could see.  I have tried downloading and re-installing the audio drivers from the Dell support site but when I go to install them I get an error message saying that 'This is not the correct audio driver for this system. The installer will now exit.'
Any suggestions to get the sound working again?

Try using System Restore. Try running the Dell Diagnostics audio tests to rule out hardware failure. See the "No Audio" FAQ for details.

Hi, Ralph009:
If your laptop is still under warranty, Dell may repair it. Otherwise, your options are to send it to Dell for a paid repair or have someone else repair it.

I have a dell inspiron 1525 laptop. Its a few years old. Recently the screen has started fading to black after a few minutes of use. I can hook up an external monitor and it works fine. In fact when I plugged in the video cable from the external monitor (even though the external monitor had no power cord and wasn't turned on) the laptop screen popped back up for a couple of minutes and then went black again. There is still a very faint image on the screen but you can only see it if you shine a light directly on it.

I've read that this could be a problem with the invertor or the backlight. I guess the inverter is cheap and relatively easy to replace but the backlight is neither of those.

Would anyone know by these symptoms what the issue is?

Thanks for your hellp,

Matt

Welcome to the Seven Forums.

I was able to tab to the button named Next on that language selection screen. I was also able to change other items via the arrow keys once tab put the list in focus.

Do you see the focus change when tab is pressed? If not, then maybe the keyboard is not being recognized either.

A:Dell inspiron laptop. Keyboard driver problem?

I'd recommend downloading a new driver from here. Click on the 'click here to download' thing, if Internet Explorer says that it stopped files from dowloading, then right click on the place where it says that and click download file. then click download.
if it doesnt say it blocked files from downloading, then just click download. after it is done downloading, click 'open folder', and the double-click on the file. if it gives a security warning, click 'run'. i think the installation process should be pretty self-explanatory, at least i sure hope so, cuz i never actually did it myself. but if you got any questions just ask
hope this helps

Is there a way to disable the mouse, so I can rule it out as a culprit?
Is it possible this is not mouse related?

Try the repair option.

There, you should find an option to run Startup Repair. Try that, maybe even more than once.

You should also see an option to open a command window. In that window, run a disk check:

chkdsk /r

Note the results, and in particular, if any bad clusters are found (Bytes in Bad Clusters).

Hi All,

I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 that has completely died. I'm not sure what happened to it exactly, as there is not evidence of a drop or a spill, but there are no signs of life whatsoever. I took the battery out, and plugged in the adapter. I know the adapter works fine as the little green light comes on when it's plugged in, and I tried it in another laptop in which it worked. When I hit the power button nothing happens. No lights turn on, or flash, no sounds are made...nothing. It's lifeless. I was thinking about just hitting eBay and ordering a new motherboard, but does anyone know if this is the right thing to do? I don't have the $100 bucks to throw down without being certain so I was hoping someone could point me in the right direction.

Thanks

What's the 7-character service tag number on the sticker of that Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop?

-------------------------------------------------------------

If you've done a hard drive format and clean reinstall of Windows Vista, it needs to be upgraded to SP1 and then to SP2 before you download and install all the post-SP2 updates.

You've obviously done something wrong because it's impossible for the hard drive to fill up from just doing what you say you've done.

The geek squad is in the process of taking out her harddrive to backup her files because she had not backed up anything. Do we have to reinstall the whole thing all over again?

You can run Dell diagnostics on the drive to rule out failure . . if it has failed, you will have to reinstall everything on the new drive.

If they were able to successfully extract the data, you may just need to run chkdsk on the drive to get it back

Hello all,

I just finished wiping a friends laptop with a fresh copy of Windows XP Pro SP3. A couple days later I went to use it after it installed Microsoft Office 2007 Pro Plus. IT was extremely slow afterwards. Extremely slow means it took 15 minutes just to pull up the Start Menu. I removed all traces of Office and it was still slow so I did a clean install on Windows Vista (Which it shipped with) however the install itself is taking ages as well... Can anyone tell me what has happened??? I am at a loss and I just want this thing to start working again. I have also tried resetting the BIOS back to default settings and still nothing!
 

A:Dell Inspiron 1525 very slow

Could be a simple hardware problem..make sure everything in bios is reading correctly (amount of ram, CPU clock speed, etc).
a fam member had a 1525, and it died spectaculary. Maybe they just arent good laptops.
If its not the above, IDK. new OS would be first suggestion, but apparently you did that already.

A:Upgrading my Dell Inspiron 1525

Do you know if that machine is Win 7 compatible at all, drivers aside?

I wouldn't get frantic about drivers.

Your Windows install disc should have most of them; you might get a few more from Windows Update.

I would go to Dell's website and download your Ethernet (NIC) driver in case Windows doesn't install it. It's the most important driver as you need it to get on the net.

Of course, it wouldn't do any harm to download all possible drivers from Dell, but I wouldn't necessarily install them. See how Windows own drivers do for you.

After you install and get updated, inspect the functionality of your hardware and take a look in Device Manager. If anything is goofy at that time, then look around for other drivers.

When I turn on my laptop I choose the option "Start Windows Normally" from the screen that appears. Once I choose that option my laptop begins to boot up, then it goes to a blue screen with some white words for a second or two, then to a pure black screen with no light being emitted for about ten seconds, after that it turns of and restarts. This happens whenever I turn my laptop on.
I've had it for about three years.

I had to replace my ac adapter and in the process of taking my laptop apart I managed to break a cable ribbon retaining clip. It's a square shape with only three sides. One side is open. It held the ribbon cable to my multi-media bar (controlling my volume, mute, stop, play, pause, etc.). Does anybody know where I can find these tiny, obscure parts? I tried Dell and got nowhere.

Thanks,
Robyne
 

A:Part for Dell Inspiron 1525

I doubt you will find the clip itself for sale but you might find a broken motherboard that has the same type on Ebay.

The clip pushes down on the ribbon to ensure good contact in the socket.If you still have the parts of the broken clip you may be able to glue them together or fit the largest piece and put tape over it to keep it in place.

I would buy an external wd passport harddrive.
Take the hard drive out of your laptop...2 screws on botom of the unit.
set it down and take a picture to remember the orientation of the black plastic pull cover.
Take the wd external apart..it will slide out..its a little tricky the first time.
now switch the covers between the 2 hard drives and put the usb adapter on the old hard drive and slide evevything back in the case about 90 percent of the way.
push the hdd into the laptop...be sure to put the pull handle back on.
Use you windows dvd and put on windows
then the drivers from the drivers and utilities disk

now plug in your old had via the usb port and see if you can read the files...alot of times you can recover many of the files

Note..when booting the vista dvd
hit power start tapping f12 light and fast
then select the dvd rom from the list to boot from

Well, you're getting past the POST test where the BIOS checks for hardware errors. The ticking noise could be a few things, really. It could be a hard drive failure, where you have a hard drive that works to boot but can't read much farther. You could have bad RAM but I'm not sure it would account for the noise. It's also possible you just have some corrupted system files.

The easiest way to do this is to try Safe Mode. On your next reboot, tap F8 several times until you get a list of start up options. Select Safe Mode and tell us if it loads this time. We'll go from there...

If I get a Windows Vista Home Premium SP1 OEM disk can I perform a repair install without being able to boot the OS normally? I can't do anything with this computer at the moment--it just sits and does nothing. I slaved the HDD to another system and was able to read and write normally, so it's definitely a problem with Vista. Problem is I have no idea what is causing the computer to hang so I can't pull any errors and startup repair says there's no problems.

On my Dell Inspiron 1525, when you try to scroll using the touchpad (sliding your finger along the right or bottom side), all it does is move the mouse. I think this might be a driver problem, so I tried going on the Dell website to find a driver for the touchpad, but all I can find are drivers for Windows XP and Vista 32-bit. Does anyone know of any Dell Inspiron 1525 drivers for Windows 7 64-bit?

You mean 60 watt and 90 watt?

Only thing I can suggest other than updating the bios, is to reset the cmos, but on that model requires you to totally disassemble the laptop to remove the cmos battery, thanks Dell.

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/ins1525/en/SM/coinbatt.htm#wp1179839

Resetting the bios with the battery and AC adapter unplugged may allow it to start charging again, a slim possibility.

Sometimes it is a defect with the motherboard.

A:Dell Inspiron 1525 and Windows 7's XP Mode

Here is a link for your notebook drivers. But unfortunately it doesn't list windows 7, hence no windows 7 drivers either.

Now about replacing CPU; I am unable to comment on it because Inspiron 1525 comes in so many flavors; you are better off consulting with Dell anyway as you commented about warranty over there. Hence, if the thing is under warranty don't void it by fiddling around with it; instead take it to dell and ask them what they can do with it; it may cost bit more; but you will retain your warranty.

Also you may have to update your notebook's bios for a new CPU (if the motherboard supports it in the first place)

However, having said that, I am not sure what is the dell's policy about replacing CPUs or memory etc. in your locality.

Lastly, download CPUZ and check motherboard type /revision / bios info etc. I believe you can upgrade to C2D easily if the Motherboard model you gave me is correct.

Tony, so the problem is your laptop is turned on, but the laptop screen isn't displaying an image?

Disconnect the HDMI cable, first. Look across your top row of keys on the keyboard. Tap the key with an icon on it that looks like a computer screen, then wait a second and see if your screen lights up It may be the F8 key, not sure. On some models you have to hold down the Fn key while you tap the F8 key. That toggles your LCD screen on and off.

We'll need more info on this in order to help - please provide this info: http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...tructions.html

One unknown driver shows up: qrsrgiig.sys
There are no google results when it's searched for, so that is suspicious and may suggest a malware infection.

Glancing through the memory dump analysis', the most significant thing (IMO) is the presence of hal.dll in the stack text. This implies that there's a problem with the system recognizing some attached device.
And, the drivers for both the Creative webcam (from 2007) and the Ricoh media card reader (from 2006) are very old - so they're prime suspects.

Please try updating or removing the following older drivers:
OLDER DRIVERS PRESENT IN THE DUMP FILES
- Create a System Restore Point prior to doing any of this. DO NOT mess with the drivers themselves - leave the Windows\System32\drivers directory alone unless we specifically direct you to it!

Using Driver Verifier is an iffy proposition. Most times it'll crash and it'll tell you what the driver is. But sometimes it'll crash and won't tell you the driver.

Hello,
Has anyone ever experienced/solved the problem of having the machine spontaneously shut itself off, as if it were running on battery power and ran out of power, even when plugged in? It usually re-starts after a minute without much concern, but sometimes lately it won't. I eventually figured out if I remove the battery pack, unplug the machine, plug it back in, and restart it will turn back on. Then, the battery goes back in and it's fine for a while. I'm afraid at some point it won't restart at all. I'd love some advice. Thanks, TJD8

You need to install those drivers specifically from the driver disk. The check marks will help you find them. It looks like you mainly need the chipset drivers, both wired and wireless network drivers and your video driver from the image.

A:BSOD upon waking up Dell Inspiron 1525

Hello,

I see your BSODs started about 5 days after you installed Windows 7, which makes me almost suspect a firmware issue. Try installing this BIOS update: Drivers and Downloads | Dell [United States]

It's not too much newer than your current version, but it's worth a shot for sure. If that doesn't work, post back here and we'll start on some hardware diagnostics.

I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 running Vista that will not boot up. When I turn the computer on the fan runs but the screen stays black and nothing turns on. The battery light blinks amber, and the wifi catcher light blinks yellow then blue. I thought it was the DC power jack/USB board, so I bought and replaced it, but that didn't do anything. It still does the same thing. I couldn't find any diagnostic for the blinking lights (the keyboard lights do not light up). I tried re-seating the RAM and anything else I could think of, but nothing works. Does this mean my motherboard is fried? How can I tell if it is that, or something else? Any advice would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

A:Dell Inspiron 1525 wont turn on

Hi this is from the manual

Solving Problems
Power Problems
If the power light is off — The computer is
either turned off or is not receiving power.
• Reseat the power cable into both the
power connector on the computer and the
electrical outlet.
• If the computer is plugged into a power strip,
ensure that the power strip is plugged into
an electrical outlet and that the power strip
is turned on. Also temporarily bypass power
protection devices, power strips, and power
extension cables to verify that the computer
turns on properly.
• Ensure that the electrical outlet is working
by testing it with another device, such as a
lamp.
• Check the AC adapter cable connections. If
the AC adapter has a light, ensure that the
light on the AC adapter is on.
If the power light is solid white and the
computer is not responding — The display may
not be connected or powered on. Ensure that
the display is properly connected and then turn
it off then back on.
If the power light is blinking white — The
computer is in standby mode. Press a key on the
keyboard, move the pointer on the trackpad or a
connected mouse, or press the power button to
resume normal operation.
If the power light is solid amber — The
computer has a power problem or an internal
device malfunction. For assistance contact Dell,
see “Contacting Dell” on page 50.
If the power light is blinking amber — The
computer is receiving electrical power, but a
device might be malfunctioning or incorrectly
installed. You may have to remove and then
reinstall the memory modules (for information on
removing and replacing memory modules, see
the Service Manual on the Dell Support website
at support.dell.com).

Refurbished doesn't necesarily = bad computer. Problems can occur with new one also. Try continually tapping F8 after loading bar disappears and choose: Last Known Good Configuration (Advanced)

A:Crackling Sound From Dell Inspiron 1525

Is laptop staying cool or did you try to update your wireless/network card? When you listening music can you check CPU usage and temperature (with temp additional program) under task manager. Also, CPU fan is not making that noise.
