Add a external monitor to a dell inspiron 9400

    I've attached this secondary monitor successfully in the past, and I used it as a display screen when I gave photo or powerpoint presentations. Suddenly, however, it has changed and the monitor comes on briefly when I power on, then shuts down and indicates no signal. If I select "extend onto this monitor" from the Display menu, it shows my desktop photo but operates as an extension, and I can move my cursor from one to the other, but I still cannot get my desktop icons or presentations onto the monitor. Something changed, but I don't know what. Can ya fixit?

Simply use the external video port. It may require an adapter depending on the monitor you plan to use.

I accidentally disabled my laptop monitor while trying to use another one. How do i turn it back on? dell latitude 610


You should be able to disconnect the external monitor, and then restart the computer to recover your defualt monitor.

If not see if oyu can move your mouse around enough to see the mouse on the second monitor, from there it depends on which operating system you have. That particular dell has XP...

So you would right click, go to properties, Settings tab, then click on the monitor you want to activate. Look for the check boxes, and click extend my windows desktop onto this monitor, then check the use this device as the primary monitor.

Own a Dell Inspiron 9400 notebook in 2006. CD burner doesn't work - skips. Can I get an external CD/DVR RW?


In short, yes you can. A USB external drive will set you back about £30.00, however, if you look on ebay, you will probably get a replacement DVDRW for about half the cost

Dell Inspiron 9400 laptop display problem


First power the system on using Fn+Power and see if the diags run and you have video. If you have video in the diagnostics, then I'd suspect the video card as the failure point.
Also connect an external monitor and press Fn + F8 to activate the VGA port If you get video on an external monitor, I'd suspect the LCD as the failure point.

Dell Inspiron 9400 display goes blank after a few minutes


If the issue occurs in the safe mode, then I'm suspecting a failure of the LCD backlight. (It warms up and quits) Also see if video stays on using an external monitor. If it does, then the LCD is most likely failing.

If video goes out on an external monitor as well, then the Video card is failing due to overheating. Make sure all vents are free of dust (Clean with canned compressed air) and the all fans are functional (Run the fan test in diagnostics) If fans check up, then video card is failure point. If fans fail diags, replace affected fan 1st
