Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
I had a Dell XT2 tablet, brand new-when I went to boot it, the POST screen and Windows load screen were half-off the screen and mirror imaged as well. After trying the Dell website, as well as Google and Bing, with no success, I decided to try a trick that sometimes works on Toshiba Portege tablets too. Remove the battery, unplug the power adapter, and hold the power switch for 10 seconds. Replace the battery, plug back in, and it appears to reset the CMOS-both the Toshiba and Dell boot normally.I suspect that this will work for many other models of laptops, but I have no proof-I do know that it will work on Dell D-620/D-630 laptops. I have also used this trick to bring laptops out of what appears to be a 'hung' sleep/standby state.
