Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I am using a Philips 220WS monitor on a dell precision m60 laptop. I have had it running and its works great. Except that each time I unplug it and use my lap top without it, the next time I want to use it I cannot get it to work at the correct resolution. I have to uninstall all drivers etc and reinstall them. I cannot seem to get a repeat pattern but eventually I get it to work correctly. I can shut down and restart as often as I like, as long as I do not unplug the monitor. As soon as I do I have to start again. I have upgraded the bios,chipset drivers etc. I am running xp service pack 3

    unfortunately though I can select the correct resolution (for the philips)on the laptop monitor settings I can only set the resolution above or below the correct resolution on the philips. ie the philips requires 1680 x 1050 but i can only set 1600 x 1000 or 1980 x ??. this is what is frustrating me as the laptop monitor requires 1920 x 1200, but will allow me to set it to 1680 x 1050, but the philips which requires 1680 x 1050 will not. Yet I have had it correct a couple of times over the past week or so, which gets back to the original problem.

Yes this can happen, but you should be able to right click on anempty space on your desktop and select graphics and then change the resolution back to the required size

My precision m60 wont turn on


remove the LCD hinge cover, see if you can turn it on pressing the power button directly. Also the suspend switch in the hinge cover could be sticking.

Dell M60 volume buttons


At the left of your power button, past the word PRECISION, there is a slot for a screwdriver. With the screen fully open, use that slot to remove the power and volume buttons. At the other end of the stip you removed will be the connector that connects the buttons to the motherboard. Reconnect it better. I had this problem too.

Dell Precision M60 won't boot up


This is a memory problem, most likely. Try swapping the SIMs or putting them in one a time.

If you only have the one SIM, see if you can borrow someone elses

Dell M60 LCD screen stopped working


Hi,
Based on your troubleshooting, it certainly is the lcd that we are having problems with. It can be the cable or a back light problem. first try to reseat the cable. use this manual to guide you. http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/wsM60/en/UG/index.htm

if it doesnt work, try to call dell. they have a grace period of 5-10 days from expiration date of warranty. if still no luck, call spareparts 800-3573355. purchase the lcd from there and install it yourself using the manual i gave.

hope this helps.

thanks.
