Re: Black Spots on LCD for Latitude D505

If you?re positive that the black spots aren?t dirt or scratches on the outside of your screen you are probably dealing with dead screen pixels. Short of replacing the LCD screen there is no way to repair them.

SOURCE: water spot in lcd of my dell latitude c510/610

if you have a jar of honey handy, run the jar under hot tap water for a few minute's. then take a dab and place it on a bandaid or piece of gauze. then center and stick it to the screen. do make sure your battery is removed and no power is connected. leave the bandaid in place for at least 4 hour's. remove and clean any excess off the screen then power it up.
sound strange? honey will suck moisture out of a diamond!

SOURCE: Keyboard problem in Dell Latitude PPX C Family

Actually this is a common problem with these Dell's. I have never found a cure for it other than replacing the keyboard. Fortunally they are not expensive, you can usually get one off of eBay for around $20 or so.

Hope this helps

Dell Latitude D505 half of screen is black with colored vertical lines.

Sounds like you have a section of dead pixels. This can happen if the laptop has been dropped a lot or stepped on or some type of impact on the laptop. This is a hardware issue. You will need to have the screen replaced. In my opinion, by the age of the laptop, its better off getting a new one.

I would like to hook a flat screen tv up to a Dell latitude D505 laptop with an Intel 855 GME graphics controller. The TV screen is black. I have the latest driver. What can I try?

Most laptops have a video-option:
* output only to the internal screen
* output only to the external screen
* output to both screens

Set your screen-resolution to 800-by-600, which your TV should support, and then "toggle" the option to choose "output to both screens'.

Dell Latitude D510 Screen Failed


The 14.1" inch screen is compatible with Latitude models D500, D505, D510, D600, D610 and Inspiron models 500m, 510m, 600m.

You may also need a screen inverter - in fact that is often the reason a screen is considered to be failing. The lcd inverter can be one of the most common items to become defective in a laptop computer. You may need a lcd inverter replacement if your screen is dim, dark, colored oddly, blinking, flickering or has dark stripes. Just something to keep in mind.
Hope this helps,
