Question about Dell Inspiron 4000 Notebook

1 Answer

The screen on my Dell Inspiron 4000 goes crazy (for lack of a better term) sometimes.

The screen on my laptop goes all pixelated and crazy sometimes. It seems to happen when I accidentally bump the lid (when my laptop is on and open) and wiggling the lid of the laptop is the only way to more or less "jiggle" the screen display back to normal.

Do I need a new video card or a new LCD screen?

Neither, sounds like the cable from the LCD to the System board is loose. There is a bezel along the top of the keyboard that you can pry off then reseat the cable.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Where is the samsung laptop service centre in DC, USA


It would certainly seem so. Has it been damaged? Dropped, Jarred, bumped? If your not comfortable with opening the laptop, take it to a Qualified Computer tech. There are connections in the rear of the monitor, a ribbon cable, and at the bottom of the monitor, behind the bezel.

Display goes black but comes back momentarily when the lid switch is toggled


if the pink tinge forms like lines that means that you have some dead pixels on your screen, so you have to change it,
if the pink tinge is all over the screen, then may be some pixel are dead or it can be a connection problem between the screen and the motherboard, and it's fixeable, tou have to open it and check the connection.

Monitor goes black


Hi...there, It's could be 2 things...either your cables inside is lose or one of your caps is leaking fluid from the inverter. Turn off the power and open the back casing to check all the cables are secured. Good luck!
