BIOS failed; Laptop Dell Inspiron 15 3537 won’t turn on at all, if the voltage 19V, 3.3V, 5V OK  and electronics components on the motherboard are good, there is chance you have failed BIOS. There is a signal test confirmation on EC/SIO pin name RSMRST# . This pin must available 3.3V(tolerance 10%) than Bios Confirmed OK. If the test failed reprogram or replace the BIOS chip.

Laptop Power System has problem: Laptop Dell Inspiron 15 3537 won’t turn on at all, probably some electronics components or chipset on the motherboard failed;  Disassemble the laptop and take out the motherboard. Ceck No burnt marks visible on the mainboard. Check chepset temperature (CPU,  GPU, Power-Supply IC …). Check power jack. Check motherboard receives 19V. with a Multimeter measure voltages on coils, check for any components shorted to ground.  checked 3.3v/5v is up and running?

If you  have 3VALW And 5VALW at coil. 3VALW should go to sio and from there you should get 3v at power button. Check SIO for corrosion,shorting or any componenets which looks suspect. Check 3 & 5v SUS voltage.

Will need an electronic boardview or Schematic Diagram for Laptop Dell Inspiron 15 3537. The failed electronic component has to be replaced.

    Dell Inspiron 15 3537 powers up, but no boot and black screen, meanwhile It’s beeping but doing it very slow and with some kind of echo after each beep!

    Maybe BIOS or ATI video fault!

    I need the bios file

    Thanx in advance!

  2. Josef baroki

    Try this file

    dell inspiron 15 3537 bios

    if doesnt solve the problem its not BIOS issue

    IF ATI GPU PROBLEM DISABLE TO ATI CHIP IF U NOT KNOW TO HOW TO CONVERT DIS TO UMA I SEND PICS HOW TO CONVERT FIRST TRY BIOS AND CHECK HOW MANY BEEP.

  3. govani

    Unfortunatelly BIOS not solved it!

    I’ll try to warm the ATI a bit if it wants to come back to life… and then try a reball

    I’ve faced this problem in Dell inspiron 3537-LA-9981P, Laptop switches but no display. No VS voltage present, Fan doesnt Spins. Doing CMos reset solves the problem and there is display. Cmos put back and packed. Works for 7-10 days and again same issue. I’ve checked each and evry component in RTC Circuit and did’nt find anything wrong in all three cases. It is not possible to do cmos reset every week to continue working-So my question is why this is happening. In fact i’ve observed this problem In La-A992 on multiple occasions with different mb each time. I seek your valuable suggestions and advice.
    I’ve faced this problem in HP 15-R series LA-A992P i3 MB and Lenovo AIO PC C20-30 LA-B691P too.

    1. DEll inspiron 3537-LA-9981P has ENE KB9012 chip
    2. HP 15-R series LA-A992P i3 MB has ENE KB9012 chip
    3.Lenovo AIO PC C20-30 LA-B691P. I believe also has ENE KB9012 chip

    Always coming across to strange issues with KB9012 series programmable chips. I suggest you to examine datatasheet of this chip.
