Some monitors have speakers built-in, some don't. The sound never travels through the 15pin d-type VGA connector. If the monitor has sound, there will be a small 1/8 inch stereo jack in the back or bottom of the monitor. Most all laptops have a headphone output jack (again 1/8 inch stereo) which is perfect for patching to external amplified speakers or to a monitor with speakers built-in. This patch cable can be purchased at Radio Shack, Best Buy, etc etc.

    If you are connecting to a Plasma TV and not a LCD monitor, you may
    have choice of connecting to audio input on the TV or into your
    amplifier. In both these cases the cable needed would be 1/8in stereo
    plug (at laptop side) to dual RCA plugs (at TV/amplifier side).

My labtop powers up but nothing showes up on screen

First of all, make sure you haven't turned video off. Is there an external monitor plugged in but not turned on? Did you press the Function key which transfers the display to an external monitor, or the one which turns the display off? Did you turn brightness or contrast all the way down?

If none of those solve the problem, you need to determine whether the LCD screen or its backlight are failing. Start the machine and illuminate the screen with a flashlight held close to the screen. If the backlight has failed and the LCD is okay, you will be able to make out a faint image. If the LCD has failed, you will see nothing.

If it's the backlight, you need to get a DC-DC converter board. Cheapest to get one on eBay and find installation instructions on the Dell website. If it's the LCD, also cheapest to buy on eBay and instructions are on the Dell website. Support Dell US

My labtop turns on but has no display not even with an external monitor need to know if thats the video card and if so how do i fix it?

I would suspect the Graphics Adapter, if a external monitor isn't working. Have you done any Graphic, or other updates? You get no monitor at boot? Black , no cursor? Nothing? Any damage? Drop? Jarred? Fall over? If it's the graphic adapter, on a laptop, usually it can't be replaced, it's integrated into the Mobo.

So I'm turning on my inspiron 5100 and all i get is a white screen. It sounds like it's on but the screen remains blank white?

Hi Donny,

A white screen usually means the LCD panel has failed/worn out. Here's an easy way to make sure. Get your laptop to an external monitor, whether at your home or a friend's place, and with the laptop off and the external monitor off, connect the monitor video (vga) cable to your laptop. Turn them both on and then on your Dell laptop hold down the fn key down in the bottom left hand corner of the keyboard and press the F8 key up at the top. That transfers the video signal to the external monitor.

If the external monitor shows your laptops normal desktop and icons, then you know for sure the LCD screen on your laptop is worn out. If you get the same white screen on the external monitor, it means the video card/controller on the motherboard of your laptop has worn out and you can move ahead with deciding on repairs or other options.

Good Luck.

PS....if the F8 key doesn't transfer the video signal. look at all the F keys for one that says CRT or one that has a little picture of a monitor to transfer the signal.

Mouse pad cursor doesn't work

try using the FN key with the monitor/VGA output selection changer(usually F5). You will see a little icon that looks like two monitors. Mouse control may have been changed to the external monitor connection. See if pressing FN(function) and holding that key and then pressing the monitor key will bring back your mouse indicator. You may need to do it with the projector connected and on.
