I have an Inspiron 1501 which, when I turn on (AC or battery) the four lights flash on for a moment and the fan starts momentarily, but nothing else. Remove them all for couple of seconds then put them back in making sure everything is seated properly.
- Next is to reseat the RAM if using a different AC adapter will not work.
Alright, this is an old Windows XP 32 bit 1.8GB RAM laptop, with 120GBs of HDD, I believe 1366x768, don't quote me.
I would like to spend some dough to upgrade it, I tried a pirated WIN 7 os (relax, just seeing if it runs swell enough to buy it) and I was wrong, dead wrong.
Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... I did the additional driver update and it found the sta driver and it said it needed to reboot and now it is stuck on a bunch of writting and it will not boot into ubuntu.
Done E: Unable to locate package linux-firmware-nonfree [email protected]:~$ When I entered the first line of the code the wired connection established but toward the end it says E:unable to locate package. Well have to go to bed work comes early I will get back tomorrow.
Then swap your original drive back to use your 64-Bit Windows. Later, I upgraded to Windows 7 64 bit and I have no problems at all.
How have you installed 64bit Windows 7 on a Dell Inspiron 1501?
So why can't I just install a new hard drive and install Windows 7 on it? There are no errors but it seems the hard drive is not being told to load. since I don't know that I cannot judge whether this password could be the cause of your issue.
I have an Inspiron 1501 that I've installed 64bit Windows 7 on.
It's running beautifully, but I am stuck trying to update the BIOS.
if not, check what the drive mode set to IDE or AHCI, you might have to switch this parameter for HDD to be recognized properly.
All previous post say use com which is no longer available. If so you need to install new coin battery to motherboard.
