Try taking the battery out, pull out the power cord, and push and hold down the power button for 10-15 seconds. Then put everything back and try to start normally. If the problem still continues, try turning it off and pulling the memory out of the laptop and then reseat it...sometimes this may cause the problem but without any sorts of beeping or display occurring, it's very hard to help you on this one. I'm wishing you the best though. :-)

SOURCE: My dell inspiron 1521 screen goes black!

Yes, most likely the inverter has failed if you can still make out the desktop but the screen is very dim. Below is the link to the service and repair manual for that model.

SOURCE: how to replace bad cooling fan on dell inspiron 1521 laptop

Replacing the fan is easy, once you remove the drives, the panels from the bottom, etc. Remove the keyboard and unscrew the frame. then the laptop clicks apart. The fan can be removed replaced.

While you can replace the fan fairly easily, they are expensive if you have to buy one from DELL. You might be able to substitute one from another laptop however.

The problem on the Dell Inspiron though is not the fan, but the design. It does not dissipate heat well, cycling heat poorly throughout the casing and ultimately over the drive before exiting from a primary vent on the side which needs to be higher to get good air flow. The air gets so hot and dirty that it eventually clogs up the fan and over heats the drive.

As a matter of fact, even when the fan is running normally the drive often fails anyway right around the two year mark. My last two companies have bought these and you can almost set your watch by the drive failures.

The solution, is a $5 cooling tray like cooks use for cookies. The metal grill will lift the laptop about 1.5 inches off the surface your working on and allow air to move freely in and out of the vent on the side.

SOURCE: Inspiron 1521 won't boot up. fan kicks in then

to fix this all you have to do is if you have a air compressor blow out the dust dont get the air chuck to close to the back, once the dust has been blown out your laptop should load up.. the reason it wont load is a safety thing once dust is out the fan wont over run and there for your laptop should start right up

My screen is black i havent had any problems new battery and adapter i shut it down woke up and its a black screen and cant see anything its never happened before i have no idea and ive had it for 4 years...


If you laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LED flashes then the problem could be a back light problem. This could be a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp. Please click on this link to determine the fault and possible fix :-

Black screen with cap lights on no boot and no bios


Can you get to safe mode? Usually F8 at boot will let you go to safe mode. It sounds as if it is not getting that far in the boot up. Try removing the hard drive and attempt boot up. If still nothing on screen it may be the motherboard or a power problem.

My Dell 720 printer won't work withmy dell 1521


All printers are compatible to a degree.

What operating system are you running on your dell 1521 laptop? What drivers are supported on your Dell 720 printer?

If you are running Windows Vista on your laptop and there are only drivers for your printer up until Windows XP and nothing is on Dell's website for your printer in terms of drivers, then you can only try to run Windows Vista in Compatibility Mode.

If this doesn't work, then you'll need to get a new printer.

Loud Fan won't stop


Your fan is most likely dirty. You can try getting a can of air and cleaning it out but most likely you will need a new fan.
