Can't change screen back using F8

I used my Dell Inspiron E1505 laptop to give a presentation last week. It was hooked up as usual to a projector, and not the screen is stuck in that mode. I cannot get the screen back to a normal view using the F8 key which usually is the way to reset the screen mode.

Is there anyway to do this manaually through the control panel or something???

Yea there is, go into the control panel, click display and go to settings and Check what is in display. If there is one for Multiple monitors choose only one monitor and make the laptop screen the default monitor display. If you cant find it there, go to advanced and look through there and depending on your system there should be setting to change it back to normal somewhere, it may just take a bit of looking.

Hope This Helps

Inspiron e1505 screen in darker on the right side


Hi

Thank you fr your query

From what you are describing it sounds like the LCD screen is starting to burn out

Please try the following

1) Switch on laptop
2) Continuously press the F8 key until a start up menu is presented
3) Chsoos safe mode from the options
4) Once safe mode has laoded up check the screen to see if it is still dark

I believe it will be.

If it is you will need to book the laptop into a reputable PC shop to replace LCD screen

If this has been useful please leave postive feedback/vote/testimonial - Thank You Again

I have a Dell Inspiron/E1505. when i turn on my computer i can barely see my screen and it says Presentation Mode is turned off. how do i turn it on?


To turn presentation mode on follow this:
  1. Open Dell Quick Set
  2. Click on Display Settings
  3. Check the box that says Activate Presentation Mode
But I don't think that will make your screen brighter, if its still dark then look for the function hot key to turn up the brightness on your screen. Its usually something like - hold the "fn" key and press the up arrow several times.

Here are my recommendations for this issue:

1. Reseat the battery.
2. Remove All External Components
3. Check the battery connectors on the battery and the system. Examine the connector on the battery and the system. Make sure that there is no physical damage and that it is clear of debris.
4. Remove All External Components
5. Try a known-good battery in the system, if available.

Screen goes black with power cord pluged in...


Did you check your power management settings?

Have you tried cycling through the monitor modes (Fn +F8)? THere are three modes. If you're on the presentation mode, video is being sent only to an external monitor, not your laptop screen.
