Strip down and remake the connection to the ribbon cable. It has to be inserted squarely and evenly and then locked down. Make sure any spacers or locators are in properly between the two screens. Any pressure will cause display anomalies.

    May be ur cooling fan is not working n its getting shutdown due to overheating. Try to get it cleaned or replaced at local pc mechanic. Won't cost much. Otherwise it may be ur motherboard is about to die. Get backup whenever it is up.

    A shadow copy is a type of backup. If you have not been backing up you may not have one. If you want to restore the system to factory default you can try F10 as it boots up.

    A laptop BIOS password is more secure than a traditional desktop to help protect the data if it was stolen. If you are the original owner of the laptop, I recommend contacting the manufacturer of the laptop. Companies such as Dell, Lenovo, and Toshiba can reset the password if you are the original owner using the Service Tag, disk, or give you exact steps for your laptop.

    Keyboard shortcuts for cut and paste are:
    Ctrl+C=cut
    Ctrl +v= paste
    These work on every computer I have ever used.

    BIOS Master Password Generator for Laptops click the link and enter your service tag #. Usually found on the bios screen or under the laptop on a little white sticker. If it doesn't work you'll have to contact dell for removal.

    The best solution for a lost password on a BIOS lock is to call Dell Technical Support and give them that System # number. They can use it to provide the unlock code... After they validate your ownership of the laptop.
