Question about Dell Latitude D800 Notebook

Laptop won't boot (display problems)

Just recently (starting today) my computer is not displaying anything on the monitor when I turn it on. I press the power button, it makes a few knocking sounds (this has always happened when I turn on the computer), the lights turn on, but nothing is displayed on the screen. I tried pressing the Fn button while I turned it on, and it worked for the Dell start-up page, but come the Windows start-up, it went black again. The Fn button did not work after the first time. Is there anything else I can try to get the display working?

    Other notes I forgot to add:
    1. This is a Dell Latitude D800 Notebook
    2. When using the Fn the first time the display was not perfect and there were three pixelated lines running down the screen. Also the resolution was changed.

    the display is blank and the computer is booted up. when I press control the display comes until I release control. If I twist the computer I can get the display to stay on.

If the diagnostics displays on the LCD screen but you get no display when Windows starts to load, it sounds like you have a video software driver problem. Try tapping the F8 key when you power on your laptop and boot in Safe mode. If it works in safe mode then you need to check you driver. You can also try connecting the laptop to an eternal monitor and see what happens.

I would try booting the computer up and press F8 and select VGA mode. From here, you can check your video settings and make sure the screen refresh rate isn't set incorrectly and make sure the resolution is correct. After that, reboot your computer and see if video will display in regular windows mode now.

What's your question? my proline laptop is not showing up the screen but it does show that its charging but doesn't show up the screen


That could be many problems. what your telling me is that u see the charge light when u charge it but when you turn it on nothing happens? this could be a number of things. I would hook up a monitor and see if anything shows up on the monitor if the laptop boots. if something does show up then its your laptop display cables that are bad.
Try This
--> First turn your computer off by pressing and holding down the start button. Next unplug the computer and then remove the battery. Press and hold down the start button for about 60 seconds. Release the button and plug in the computer. Press the start button and the display should return. Replace the battery. If this does not work, try it again up to four times. No results usually indicates a bad mother board. Hope this helps.

I try to boot up and the dash lights up but the screen won't respond - totally blank. tried to hook up an external monitor and it doesn't see anything -- is it necessarily toast?


If you did press on Fn+F5 when you connected an external monitor on your portable system, the problem lies on the video card of your computer. You may need to have it replaced. If you do not see nothing at all on your LCD display or the external monitor, definitely your video card is busted. But if you at least see something before you get the blank screen, there might still be a bit of hope. Try the following troubleshooting step in case.
1. Boot to the Advanced boot option by tapping on F8 as you turn your computer on. 2. Go to the device manager. (windows key + r, then type devmgmt.msc, then press ok) 3. Click on the plus sign on the display adapter. 4. Right click on the device listed under the display adapter then choose uninstall. 5. Restart the computer to normal mode. 6. Download and install the appropriate video driver that is available on the link.
ATI Video driver
Intel Video driver
Nvidia Video driver
Note: Make sure that you remember the correct driver for your computer as Acer posts three possible video cards for the computer model that you have.

Hp 6735s was used last night and shut down properly but this morning turning it on the system continue booting without displaying anything on the screen which makes it blank / black........ Please I need...


If there is a display switch in the functions on the keyboard (most likely will look like a laptop monitor or a computer monitor on the keyboard). Press the function key and the button associated with that and wait 3 to 4 seconds (you may have to press it multiple times) If you have anything in the vga slot, then it may think a monitor is plugged in and won't display the laptop screen.
If none of the above work, then maybe your computer is having a systematic failure, or the screen connector is loose.

I have problem with vga it doesn't display and it comes lines on the screen and the laptop doesn't boot too


I'm no computer expert but have done a few of vga and no boot problems. Try your vga on another computer to confirm if vga is working. If the vga works on another computer, then you can concentrate on your computer booting.
Try turning on your computer on safe mode..most computers boots on safe mode when you turn the computer on and continuously press f8, normal start up will happen but it will be in safe mode, but notice display will be a little different(bigger) ..try and restore your computer settings on a later date by doing a system restoration. Or if you know any software recently installed that might caused your computer not to boot, you can uninstall it when in safe mode...try these and see if it works.
cheers

Dell Inspiron E1705 does not show any picture


First of all, check that the laptop is set to output video to the LCD. There should be a function key which will determine whether it is outputting video to the built-in LCD, the external monitor, or both. That should be holding down your "FN" key and hitting "F8." If it is on CRT ONLY, it should switch within 1-2 keypresses.

Secondly, take a good bright flashlight and shine it directly at the LCD panel from about 1-2 inches away. If you can actually see the graphics on the screen faintly in the background, your backlight is not turning on. The backlight is literally a bulb which lights up the screen, and they can burn out. It is repairable, and shouldn't cost more than $150.00 from a reputable repair shop.

Cannot display anything at all,sounds it is working but, cannot dispaly boot screen and rest???


Try connecting an external monitor to the Dell Latitude D820. If the monitor display is fine, then your laptop’s LCD display panel is defective. If the monitor has no display, then your problem is with either the video card or motherboard located inside your laptop.
