Hi All,

I have a Inspiron 1525. It was working fine till last week. But now if i press the power key, only the keyboard status lights are blinking. The system is not getting turned ON.

I tried Fn + Power key combination and ran the Dell Diagnostics tool. After extensive diagnostic, the laptop turned on, but it couldnt load windows vista. There was a message that system memory has changed. But i didnt do any changes to the memory. I was able to rectify this also by choosing one of the trouble shooting options presented.

But yesterday this problem again occured. This time when i tried Fn + Power key combination only the keyboard status keys are blinking.

What might be the problem? I heard this is the best site for troubleshooting any kind of laptop problems.

Thanks Rajendran

The first thing I would try doing with your laptop would be to remove and reseat all of your memory.

If you are unable to boot up after doing this I would try removing one stick ( if you have more than one ) and retry booting your laptop. If no bootup, try removing the other stick and insert the one you just removed.

May be you should find out how to reset your bios. I you do this make sure that you go into your bios and set the time and date. Just a suggestion
