Dell :: Inspiron 4100 Can Not Boot Up

Mar 9, 2009

I have inspiron 4100, that can not boot up.

Once I press the on/off button, the power and HD light on the right site on steady and the middle light (have 3 light) next to on/off button keep blinking for 5-7 sec, then all light is off.

just before this happen 3-4 days ago, the notebook working properly.

Also is there any site that can explain what that light code error meaning ? (I believe that steady light (power & HD) and blinking middle light have some meaning)

Dell Inspiron 4100 :: Position Of Cursor Changes While Typing?

Sep 21, 2003

I have in inspiron 4100 for about 14 months. I have noticed that while typing, the cursor my move back  to a different position in the line, move to a previous line, or jump to another text box altogether.  It drives me crazy that when I type, I never know if there is some combination of keys or if I accidently touch something to make the cursor change position.

Is there by default some combination of keys that cause cursor movement. It has happened 4 times while typing this message.

Can this be turned off?

Dell :: Laptop HD Why The Extra Pins For The 4100?

Oct 28, 2009

I have a working Inspiron 4100 and a maybe working 1200. I wanted to pull the hard drive from the 4100 to test the 1200 which may have a dead hard drive.

I found that it wouldn't fit. The drive from the 4100 has a set of three extra pins making it different than the 1200 hard drive. Is this normal? Why the extra pins for the 4100?

HP DV7T-4100 Audio :: No Sound At All - With Built In Speakers / Headset Or Using HDMI Connection To TV

Jun 11, 2014

DV7T-4100 w/Intel i5 M460 processor
Product ID: WW189AV
Windows 7 (64 bit) Home Premium
My laptop has no sound at all - built in speakers, earbuds, not even when connected to my TV using the HDMI port (which is a separate driver).
2 weeks ago all sound was working. I was watching (and listening) youtube videos using my earbuds. I stopped a video and left my laptop unused until the next day. There were no installs or updates applied that I am aware of. The next day I closed Youtube and played words with friends and there was no sound. I restarted the laptop and still no sound.
I have read and worked through many processes and fixes found on this and other forums but have been unable to get sound working. I also attempted to restore my laptop back to prior to this issie but my restore points fail (corrupted).
Drivers: Both drivers are present and state they are working properly - they are current versions
ATI high definition Audio Device   Date  5/6/2010    Ver
IDT High Definition Audio Codec   Date  6/17/2010  Ver  6.10.6289.0
I have uninstalled (checked delete the driver software for this device) and reinstalled multiple times.
I have uninstalled, shutdown, removed power and battery, held power button for 30 seconds, then repowered and let the drivers reinstall (they automatically installed upon boot  I was not able to run the sp50642.exe that I downloaded).
I also used the HP Recovery tool and reinstalled the drivers to factory default
I have run Microsofts problem finder and it reports all is working.
I have verified there are no settings muted or disabled. When I test the speakers from"Sound and Headphones" Properties, I get "Failed to play test tone".
FYI - I have not done an update to the BIOS but I checked and mine is the updated version F.29 but the date is 14 days older then the downloadable SP55299 version.

Dell :: Inspiron Won't Boot From CD-ROM

Jan 6, 2009

I need to boot my DELL Inspiron 12500(PP02L) with a Bootable CD. However, everytime I'm booting, it straight goes and boots WinXP.

I tried F12 when booting and it doesn't do anything - WinXP boots up without giving me an option of any kind.

I even tried F2 and it took me to the BIOS.
I see Removable media and it has 'Hard Disk', 'CD-ROM', 'Intel....
'Hard Disk' is selected, but when I move down to CD-ROM and press enter, nothing happens. With 'CD-ROM' selected, I press F10 to save and exit. The computer boots up, but it does not boot from the CD-ROM. It just loads WinXP again from the Hard Disk.

Dell :: Inspiron 17r SE Will Not Boot

Mar 31, 2013

I have had my Dell Inspiron 17r SE laptop for nearly three months and it has functioned without any issues. All of a sudden the computer will no longer boot up. It reaches the screen where the Dell logo is displayed and then displays a black screen and fails to boot, remains on and does nothing. I called customer support and they had me take out the battery and discharge any remaining power by holding the power button for two minutes; this did not solve the problem. The customer service agent then instructed me to run the hardware diagnosis tests, which all passed which led the agent to conclude that my problems were software based. I was transferred to software support where, after being put on hold for over half an hour they tried to get me to pay for them to fix my problem. 

I have a hard time envisioning ever dealing with Dell again, as I am extremely unsatisfied with both the product that they have shipped me and the customer support I have received. It is simply not acceptable for a laptop that cost me nearly a thousand dollars to stop working within three months, and then to be milked for more cash to fix a problem that seems to be common. I am a programming student, and to be without my laptop for any length of time is going to be a massive inconvenience.

Dell :: Inspiron 1525 Won't Boot

Jan 10, 2010

My cousin has an Inspiron 1525 laptop which has had an issue of booting. Randomly one day she received the following message, "Internal hard drive not found. Reseat hard drive". It also said from below "Boot to CD by pressing any key" that the "BOOTMGR is not found".

I received the laptop in this state. I booted from the CD (Windows install disc) and was able to reinstall Vista. I then updated all the drivers and had everything working like a charm. I thought I had hit jackpot with an easy reformat. After about 4 hours of having it running perfectly, as I was installing Windows updates, I received the "Internal hard drive not found. Reseat hard drive" message. Now I cannot boot into Windows and booting from the CD no longer works.

Here are some of the specs:

T2390 Dual Core 1.86Ghz

Is the hard drive dying? Is it the SATA controller? The motherboard? Anyone have any ideas or past experiences?

Dell :: Inspiron 8200 Won't Boot Up

Oct 10, 2009

I have a Dell Inspiron 8200. When I press the power button, the laptop powers up. The power button lights up, but, the PC won't boot up. Even the Dell BIOS screen won't show up.

In fact, nothing on the screen shows up, even though the notebooks powers on

I've never had this issue before, but abruptly my laptop fails to boot up. I'm guessing there might be a hardware problem, but does anyone have any ideas on how to tackle the issue?

Dell :: Inspiron 6000 Won't Boot

Jan 2, 2009

I just recently tried to power on my Inspiron 6000 and I got no display. The num lock, caps lock and another green light all lit up together briefly and that was it. The hard drive light blinked a couple times indicating the hard drive was trying to work, but nothing happened.

I put my ear to the laptop to see if I could hear the fans running and it appears the fans are on. The power button stays illuminated, so I know the laptop is on. The laptop just won't go through it's boot process at all and the screen is blank.

I just got my laptop back from Dell right before Christmas and the extended warranty expired the day after. They were fixing some cosmetic issues such as missing keys from the keyboard, the palm rest, etc. They also checked the functionality and performed all necessary changes to ensure my laptop was working properly as I purchased the complete care warranty initially.

I had just ordered new memory for it right before it stopped working. I have received the memory, but now the laptop doesn't work. I only had 512mb of memory originally so I ordered 2 Kingston 1 gb sticks to install. I've done some reading online and it seems my problem could be anything from a bad motherboard, memory, video card, etc. I don't want to post a novel but I can provide more info about the functionality of the laptop before sending it to Dell, if needed.

Dell :: Inspiron 1525 Won't Boot Up

Nov 3, 2009

I'm having a serious problem with my laptop right now and I'm fearing the worst: a bad motherboard, a problem which I have found to be pretty common with 1525 users through Google/forum searches.

Hopefully someone out there can relate and has a remedy that will save me money/time/hassles with my laptop, which by the way has been out of warranty for about 6 months.

I purchased the 1525 last April (2008) direct from Dell. Here are the vital specs: Inspiron 1525, Intel Core 2 Duo T5550, 1.83GHz, 667Mhz, 2ML2 Cache. I've never really had any problem with it until yesterday morning. I woke up and pressed the power button after allowing the system to hibernate the night before. The power LED lights up in the bottom left and the touch-sensitive media buttons flash from side-to-side like normal

Dell :: Inspiron 1520 Won't Boot At All

Jan 24, 2010

I just uploaded this video of my problem, you should be able to stream it, if anyone has any problems then let me know. And sorry for the quality, I only have a camera phone to hand, you should be able to see what happens anyway...hopefully

Basically what happens is, I press the power on button of my machine, everything appears to be normal, the power LED turns on, the Hard drive activity LED flickers on and the DVD drive "clicks" (im sure some Dell owners know what I mean by this) BUT then all the lights go out (besides the power) and nothing is shown on my screen, no BIOS loading, nothing.

Does anyone know what might cause this?

I tried yesterday to get it to work but after about 7 hours I just gave up, nothing I did changed anything (I thought the CPU/GPU may of come unattached from the motherboard but after reseating them the problem was still there

Dell :: Inspiron 1526 Won't Boot

Jun 1, 2009

My Inspiron 1526 won't boot up. It was working fine this morning but came home to find it on with no video; I leave it on at all times. I keep it plugged into a UPS there were no power outages either way.

Now when I try to boot it the keyboard lights will flash as normal, the DVD drive will make a noise like it's doing something, but the screen remains dead and hard drive light never indicates activity.

Dell Inspiron 14z :: Slow To Boot

May 2, 2013

I have recently purchased an inspiron 14z, I'm quite disappointed in how long it takes to boot. For instance it is considerably slower thsan my older latitiude machine which does not have a hybrid drive. Is there something I can do to check the intel smart start (or whatever) is working correctly? Is the 32gb SSD portion supposed to show up as an extra empty hdd at D://?

Dell Inspiron 15R :: BSOD - Will Not Boot To OS

Jan 14, 2015

I have an inspiron 15r, about a year old that returns a BSOD upon boot. 

The problem is with Iastor.sys - which I understand is Matrix Storage Manager. 

My problem is none of the regular boot options work. No safe mode, no last good config. 

Would it be possible to just download a new iastor.sys and replace the existing file with a new one via repair console?

Dell :: Inspiron 630m Won't Boot Anymore

May 9, 2009

My current Insprion 630m seems terminally ill to me, it will no longer boot into Windows. I could get as far as the XP Welcome screen, but it would just hang whilst logging in.

I can't re-install Windows because the DVD-RW is knackered. It won't work anymore. I tried booting into safe mode but it just crashes.

I think the HDD or some controller on the motherboard could be screwed. Maybe the BIOS is corrupt?
As far as I'm aware the last time I logged in I didn't get any reports of any viruses from my AV software -

Dell :: Inspiron 1525 Wont Boot

Sep 7, 2009

The laptop was working fine all day but then all of a sudden when I had to reboot it, the only that would come up is the dell media direct and that wont load because its telling me it cant find the drive.

I tried to put in a XP disk that I have and it wont boot to that either even with the correct boot order in the BIOS. I tried to do a restore and that still didnt work, when I go into F8 it gives me the choices but its telling me that its Windows XP embedded when its windows vista.

Is there a way I can get this to work, I dont care about reformatting it because I hate Vista anyways, but I dont want to spend the money on a brand new drive.

Dell ::Inspiron 6000, Can't Boot BIOS,

Jan 13, 2009

When I restarted I got a blue screen saying "memory parity error". I restarted again the blue screen was gone, and it tells me a NIC adapter is having problems,

and asks me to press (S) to shut it off. When I tried pressing 'S' it didn't respond (more like it froze), so I restarted again.

This time I can finally boot into windows. But now my 'new hardware found' wizard went berserk, and kept on telling me there is new hardware found, non-stop. I had a look at my Device Manager and noticed the following had exclamation marks on it:

-OHCI compliant IEEE 1394 host controller
-intel pro/wireless 2915abg network connection

-Ricoh R/RL/5c476(II) or compatible cardbus controller
-SDA standard compliant SD host controlle .....
