Dell Vostro 1500 :: Won't Boot Sometimes - Getting Black Screen Without Any Beep

Feb 18, 2013

I have a Dell Vostro 1500 which sometimes ,doesn’t want to boot.

I was using Windows 7,I have changed it to XP ,and it’s happening the same thing.

If I want to restart it  , I’m getting a black screen(without any beep) , and when I'm turning it on ,I must press 20-60 times on power button  and maybe it will work.

In the same time ,I can keep it on,3 4 days ,without any problem.

I discovered that, when I want to turn it on (forced),if I press hard in the middle of the keyboard ,around keys "y /u/i/k/j/h" ,I hear a small sound, and after this its booting.

Dell :: Vostro 1500 LCD Screen Replacement. New Screen Acting Weird

Jan 30, 2010

Hi all, new person here. I did a search on LCD screens but can't find my problem anywhere.

Here's the background and problem:

Vostro 1500 with Chungwha 1280x800 screen that got cracked by my kids. I ordered a replacement screen from a company off Amazon.com that was highly rated. Got the screen and installed it. It is make by Chi Mei. When I powered up the computer I got 8 screens of start up and it was very dim. Once it went past the Windows start up screen everything went black. It would only continue to Windows screen, still showing 8 windows in safe mode. I hooked up the old screen and everything worked fine.

I contacted the company and they air expressed me another screen, which I received yesterday. Hooked it up and got the exact same problem, which leads me to believe it's the Dell that doesn't like it. I will try and attach some photos because I am at a loss.

Thanks for your help in advance.

Dell :: Screen Brightness On Vostro 1500

Mar 4, 2009

I have a Dell Vostro 1500. While working on a Ispiron 1525 I noticed how much brighter the screen was than my Vostro.

I had the brightness turned up all the way on both notebooks. But the screen was noticeably brighter.

The Inspirons resolution was 1280x800 or something along that line.

Dell :: Fuzzy Screen Vostro 1500

Jan 9, 2010

My Dell is out of warranty sadly.

This has happened twice recently, I'll be using the laptop, just browsing the net, photoshop, music etc. I don't play any games so wouldn't say the gpu (if that's what the problem is) has ever been under massive load.

I try to keep an eye on the temps and have never noticed them be excessively hot at any time.

It happened again today, so I ran just about every dell diagnostic test that you can use when you first start the laptop and every test passed.

Dell Inspiron M5030 :: 7 Beep And Black Screen

Jan 3, 2015

I need to contact customer services regarding my daughter's Dell PC.  It is three years old and out of warranty  it is still in perfect condition otherwise as my 12 year old daughter has only used it for light use and it was working perfectly until the other day.  Then it just wouldn't turn on and started beeping seven times.  I have noted from this website and many others that there was a generic fault with the processor Inspiron M5030 so I was surprised that there has been no type of recall on the laptop.

My daughter is understandably upset as I cannot afford to buy a new laptop and when I bought the Dell I thought it was a good product and expected it to last considerably longer than it has.  According to trading standards I am within my rights to go back to the manufacturer within in six years of purchase if the product  should be expected to have a longer lifespan and is known to have a fault.  However, I can't seem to send an email from this site.

Dell Inspiron M5030 :: 7 Beep Error With Black Screen

Jan 11, 2015

I purchased another Dell product in 2012 but use it so infrequently it's still relatively new in usage terms.

It worked just fine yesterday, but when I tried to turn it on today, I get 7 audio beeps and a black screen.

Using my desktop, I've searched on Dell and Google about the problem and it seems to be an overheating processor problem and also seems to be a well known defect that some people have gotten Dell to replace the motherboard even if the product is out of warranty.

Dell Vostro 3550 :: Screen Turned Black And Was All Static

Apr 8, 2013

I have a Vostro 3550 and it is not even a year old. Last night I was typing an email and all of a sudden the screen turned black and was all static. This morning I was having difficulty turning it on but saw the boot screen and hit Enter to Boot normally. Then it went static again. I have tried turning it on with and without the power cord plugged in. I no longer can get it to even load to the boot screen.

Dell Vostro 3460 :: Not Boot Only Loads The Dell Logo And Then Shows A Black Page

Feb 9, 2013

my laptop vostro 3460 won't boot any more. When I turn it on it loads the Dell logo (I suppose it passes the POST) but then it just shows a black page. It could be anything, but I guess that it may have something to do with Windows 8 and the UEFI system. I also would be quite happy to install linux mint and get rid of Windows, but I don't know how to change the boot priority order.

So my questions are:

1 is it a hardware issue ? if not, can I solve my problem easily ?

2 how can I change the boot priority order, to install mint ?

Dell :: Dead Vostro 1500

Jan 2, 2010

my vostro 1500 was working fine, it decided to not boot up randomly. when i press the power button, the power led comes on, followed by the hdd led, and the power led stays on . The lcd does not power on. Tried booting using only the battery, same. the power adapter, same. took the notebook apart, reseated the processor, heatsink, ram, and all the connectors, still no luck. tried replacing the ram with my other laptop, same. the hdd works on my other laptop, so i dont know what the exact problem is. This occured once last time, but it booted up fine after 2-3 tries, now it just wont boot on. tried connecting an external monitor, still no life. anything else i could try? and i rule out the faulty 8600 chipset, as i never overclocked my laptop, and always used thermal paste every 6~ months. would really appreciate some help, as im typing this on an ancient hp pavilion ze series, which still works after all these years.

Dell :: Vostro 1500 CPU Underclocked

May 20, 2009

I have a Vostro 1500 laptop with a Core 2 duo T5470, which is supposed to have a 1.6GHz frequency.

I noticed that my computer was going a little bit slower so I check my CPU and saw that it was only running at 1.2GHz.

I thought it would be an easy fix by going to my BIOS and turning off speedstep, but when I looked I see that it is already turned off. I updated the BIOS and turned off speedstep after the update and it is still running at 1.2. Any ideas on what this could be?...

Dell :: Vostro 1500 And SATAII

Mar 18, 2010

Does anyone know if the Vostro 1500 supports SATAII? I'm about to buy an SSD for my Vostro but if it doesn't support SATAII then I'm not really going to see a major difference..

I planning on upgrading to a new laptop soon and bring that SSD with it, but wanted to know what I should be expecting out of the 1500..

Dell :: Vostro 1500 With Nvidia GPU

Dec 15, 2008

Just wanted to see how many people have had the Vostro 1500 and had their GPU burn out. Also how you dealt with it. I'm currently fighting with Dell tech support as they believe that every laptop line they have with the 8xxx series Nvidia card is affected but the Vostro 1500? That is just not logical especially with other OEM using Nvidia GPU having the same issue.

Dell :: LCD - Old Vostro 1500 Went Kaput

Nov 20, 2008

So the LCD in my 15-month old Vostro 1500 went kaput this evening. I immediately hooked up an external monitor to google the symptoms (I could still see a faint image on my display) and I came to the conclusion that something is wrong with the inverter. I've never messed with LCD's before, so I don't even know what that is.

Anyways, I immediately contacted Dell Support figuring this would be covered by my 2-year warranty (guess I'm pretty naive). They got back to me pretty promptly notifying me that the LCD needed replacement and that was not covered by the warranty. I was then given a spare parts number that I should call if I wanted a replacement part.

Does that sound right? The whole LCD needs replacing? How expense and technical would this fix be?

Dell :: Vostro 1500 Does Not Charge

Jul 12, 2009

I opened my laptop to clean it using the manual on Dell website and when I got it back together it doesn't want to charge. When I plug it in the light on the charger goes off and a squeaky sound can be heard from the charger.

My friend has Vostro 1510 and mine and his chargers work with his laptop, but not with mine. So anytime I plug his or mine chargers the light on it just goes off and then it has to be unplugged and plugged again in the socket to restart it.

I believe there is some sort of protection in the charger, other than the fuse. Without the battery the laptop does not work

Dell :: Vostro 1500 Review

Feb 22, 2008

Since I couldnt find any reviews of the Vostro 1500's i thought Id go ahead and write one so hear goes

My wife and I decided to use our income taxes to get us both new laptops this year. After ordering a pair of these awesome lappys at midnight Friday morning, a scary ordeal (they were missing form the wish list when i went to move them to the shopping cart) I was content to waiting for the estimated build date of Feb 22 and a estimated Delivery date of Feb 27-29.

Then as i was checking my email Monday I got a email from dell stating my laptops had been shipped. Excitedly i read the email to find more good news. my laptops would be delivered the next day! woot! after scaring the hell out of my kids with my excitement (yes i actually yelled WOOT!) i told my wife who Immediately did the same thing, again scaring the kids but they all got a good laugh when we explained to them why we were so happy

First impressions This thing is Fast. Having never used a dual core computer I was always skeptical as to the speed boost (Never saw the speed boosts that sli boasted) but this is hands down the fastest computer I have ever used. And I picked the lowest speed processor available for this laptop.................
