    Hello, I recently received a dell inspiron 1564 laptop that was having screen and fan issue's. The screen issue was fixed by removing the fan and cleaning the filter which had half a cat in it !!! This stopped the display going to white screen due to overheating, however the fan problem still remained. The fan would run at start up and run continuously. To try to fix this i checked the dell website for a solution and found a BIOS upgrade that stated to address fan issue's with this model. That's where the fun began. Midway through the upgrade stopped, but not before putting the original bios in back up, another message came on screen to say that battery charging had been disabled, that's when everything froze. After some time mouse function came back and i tried restarting the laptop...:eek: As it stands there are no light's with A/C or battery, the power button does nothing, the only way to get life at the moment is to remove the battery hold end and plug in the a/c then release end. This start's the fan and the disk drive, all other external connection's are receiving power but still no life from the power button, lights or screen. Iv'e stripped it down and checked all connection's and there fine.. My main question is that if the motherboard was fried would the external connection's still receive power? I have the attempted bios upgrade on a disk and when it is in the drive it keeps attempting to read it over and over, it will not do this with any other disk.. Any help or suggestion's would be greatly appreciated...
