I have used a different video card on a friends. I uninstalled hers and put a different one in just to see if it would recognize it. Then reversed the procedure to revert back to her original!

Try booting into safe mode (press F8 before windows logo appears)

You should be able to access your desktop in safe mode.

good luck

Where did you disable it? In windows? Start up in Safe mode and check your video there. I would ininstall it and restart. Windows should see it and set it up normally.


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

Use an external monitor and boot safe mode, then delete the video adapter completely and reboot. windows will redetect it.

by coincedence, you may have a burned backlight in the lcd if the above step fails. you can get it repaired, or replace the lcd itself. ebay and google search for lcd backlight or lcd repairs.

Starting problem


Immediately after seeing the Dell logo, keep tapping the 'F8' key,
until you see a "menu" (white text over a black background)
giving "startup" options for Windows XP.

Select "Safe Mode" and see if you can start in that mode.
Then, use "System Restore" to go "back" in time, to the most-recent checkpoint (date/time) where your computer _DID_ work.

Restore to that point, and restart.

The dell inspiron 1318 shows the windows logo shortly after the screen goes black and I cant see the anything its like the screen is turning off


This sounds like a video driver problem. To find out reboot the laptop and press F8 to goto Safe Mode. If you can see the screen in Safe Mode then you have a video driver problem in normal boot. If you still have no video the you may have a bad motherboard and will need to take it to a repair shop

Laptop screen and external screen have lost color completely, only getting black and white


In my opinion if you have black and white screen internal and external screen while booting and while you are into windows desktop you have a faulty graphic card. Common fault on toshiba laptops.
Actualy the reason for their sales drops dramaticaly in the past few years ;)

The screen goes very dark within a minute after booting up = I can just barely see the menu page


When you say screen goes very dark when it booted to windows so it means that when you turned on the laptop when the dell logo flashes the screen was fine? if thats the case could you please try this. after turning on the laptop you will see the dell logo flashes immediately keep tapping on F2 and then it will show you the BIOS setup utility, please check if in BIOS setup display goes dark as well. If yes then try this, after turning on the computer when dell logo flashes keep tapping on F12 to boot menu then select utility partition to run the diagnostics. Please run test on the LCD check if display goes black when running the LCD test. Then try this when you sees the dell logo keep tapping on F8 to boot in safe mode check if in safe mode display goes very dark. Try this too, boot in F8 then select last known good configuration check if the settings on your display will be fix. If you can boot to safe mode no problem then uninstall the display or video driver. then restart computer.
You can also try to connect an external monitor if you have one just try to isolate if issue is on the LCD or the video card. If the display is dark as well in external monitor then video card needs to be reseated if fails then replaced. In situation like this most video cards is integrated to the motherboards. So replace motherboard.

Screen on laptop keeps going black


please explain further. keeps going black from where? after turning on the laptop? of after windows logo? if after windows logo screen turns black if a no boot issue where laptop cannot load system files. if screen is black after turning on no manufacturer logo and windows logo or anything then it might be the LCD or video card / motherboard. to isolate try connecting your laptop to an external monitor and check if you will be getting the same problem. if no display from the external monitor then its a video card issue, if video card is integrated needs to replace motherboard.

Boot into safe mode (press F8 while booting for options menu) then go into device manager and re-enable the display adapter or uninstall it and allow Windows to reinstall it when you reboot.

Monitor goes blank after showing XP logo screen (black screen with the xp logo right after boot up screens)


There are different reasons why this might happen. Let's try some. 1.) Does your board have an onboard video card, cause if it does, then XP might be using that as the primary monitor. TRy plugging into the onboard video when you start up! If that works then you need to disable the onboard video.(try disabling it in bios!) if not then 2.)When booting at the select xp or recovery console, press F8. You'll get the menu with safe mode and what not. Go down to Enable VGA Mode then press enter. If that works, go to display settings and lower your resolution then restart. But usually when this happens your monitor says "Out of Range" but u can still try Well if that doesn't work, tell me more! Regards, Armando
