Question about Dell Latitude D600 Notebook

1 Answer

The screen won´t work, please help.

So my dad bought this laptop like 2 years ago, he´d use it every now and then but he would never unplug it so basically the DELL was working 24/7, then one day it wouldn´t charge anymore, guess the battery died or something, but it would work fine when plugged in.
Anyway, he gave it to me because he didn´t really needed it, so I would use for the normal stuff, I too used it without unpluggin it.
Recently (3 days ago) the laptop suddenly "Shut down" or at least I thought but it didn´t really shut down, the screen just got extremely black, though you could see what´s in the screen but its not easy at all, in fact is almost impossible to see anything.
When I push the little button that is between the screen and the keyboard the DELL returns to its old colored-self, but after some seconds it returns to the blackness; but when I repeated the proccess the colors went from the normal colors to more redish colors.
I also tried connecting a monitor but it won´t work, it only works when the screen in the laptop works.
What can it be? Some cables inside the laptop burned? Do I need a new laptop?

Thanks in advance.

Freezers have an electric motor within to pump the freezer gas around. Its possible the movement has caused a problem. Get ban appliance shop or tech to check it out.

Age problem


Since you have the answer, the easiest way to work with this is to work with real numbers and break it down. What are the knowns?
Rose + 25 = Dad
10 + 25 = 35 (today)
5 years ago, Dad (then 30) was 2x old as Rose will be 5 years from now (+5), or (30/2) -5 = 10

You can also put this into formulas
Rose + 25 = Dad
Dad - 5 = 2 * (Rose + 5)

So, if Dad = Rose + 25, you can substitute one for the other in the 2nd formula, like so:

(Rose + 25) - 5 = 2 * (Rose + 5)
Rose + 20 = 2 * (Rose + 5)
Now, you can solve for Rose and eventually come up with 10

I hope this helps.

ACER 3680 2022 LCD SCREEN PROBLEMS


It may not be a problem with the lcd.

This is most likely a problem in the video card of the laptop.
but you can test it out, if you plugin a extra screen to the laptop to see if the white dots come to the other monitor aswell.

If you see white dots in both of the screens this means the video card is about to fail. and would need to be replaced.

If you don't see any white dots on the external screen then the problem is in the lcd.

You can call bestbuy they should give you another phone number to call for repairs / parts.
