Dell Inspiron 1501 - BOOT ERROR

Hi all,

I have a Dell Inspiron 1501 laptop, when I turn on the laptop, the CAPS lock keeps blinking repeatedly, I have removed and re-installed both the memory and the CPU, however it has not fixed the problem.

If I however hold down the END button on the keyboard whilst pushing the power button, the light doesn’t flash.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Try looking at the forum post. Usually that is a CPU, memory, or mainboard problem.
