Dell Inspiron 1501 Won't Turn On
« on: July 10, 2009, 09:55:55 AM »
Greetings!  I have a Dell Inspiron 1501, running on Windows XP, bought it new about 2 years ago. It will not turn on -- nothing happens when I push the power button, no lights, sounds, nothing.

I recently updated the  BIOS.

I have tried turning it on with only the adaptor plugged in, with only the battery plugged in, and with both plugged in -- same results = nothing.

Any help is appreciated!

Is it still under warranty?

Did you make changes in the BIOS, or did you "flash" the BIOS?
