OS: Vista service pack 3

I bought a Dell Inspiron 1545 two summers ago. For a long time it ran like a charm, until it suddenly had a problem upon booting, where the fan would start, but no connection to the hard drive could be established. For some reason, it started working again after a week or so, lying around where I had given up on it without any repairs.

Then today, it stopped working again. This time however, there is no blue light when the charger is plugged in. Nor is there any response when you press the power button (plugged in as well as unplugged). Furthermore, it also will not boot with the battery unplugged.

I have a feeling that I am experiencing motherboard issues.

Any answers are much appreciated

BSOD: BCCode 50
I'm experiencing bluescreens every 2 - 5 days with BCCode 50. I followed your recommendation using Driver Verifier and encountered a bluescreen on re-boot. Attached .dmp file was created. Will appreciate your assistance to resolve the issue. Thanks!
