Question about Dell E176FP 17" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

I am using a Dell Lattitude D830. I added another monitor (Dell) for home use. First time I hooked it up, it worked fine. Today, I took the laptop with me, so unplugged the monitor. Now, I cannot get the monitor to come back up. I have gone into the control panel and changed the monitors, but it still won't work. The monitor works, but I cannot get the laptop screen to show up. My wireless mouse won't work either now. I need the monitor badly, as my DH cann ot see the small screen on the laptop. I have unplugged, rebooted, changed out batteries and everything else I could think of. I consider myself pretty computer savvey!

Have you tried the "function key + F8 key" since that usually is the key combo you press to switch between built in LCD and external monitor on a Dell laptop.

Worst case scenario would probably be some type of driver setting or resolution setting might be to high. and in that case you can try system restore (with the monitor connected of course) to the day it was working and see if the setting go back to that time...

This solution is the easiest one to try since you can always undo the restore operation if it doesn’t resolve the issue

In the future this might help:

BIOS passwords can be reset or removed in two ways:

1. using software 2. using hardware.

I would first try resetting or removing using software, here are two software apps to reset or retrieve BIOS passwords.

!BIOS - is a PC BIOS toolkit offering password removal/decrypt and BIOS settings modification/backup/restore.
You can download it here:

Hi, I have a Dell Latitude D830. The display was off. I can connect extrenal monitor for current work. Please advise if I need replace display or motherboard ? Thanks Alex


Before replacing anything verify that your laptops display type didn't get changed to VGA out only.
look at your function keys (usually top one or two rows ) and look for the key that has a pc/monitor icon. with the machine powered up and connected to the external monitor press the function (FN button lower left of keyboard) and the video/monitor button at the same time. most laptops have 3 settings:
laptop display only, external display only and laptop and external display. Press the FN/Display button at lease 3 times waiting 3-5 seconds between keystrokes. I have seen this many times where the FN/display button keys are hit inadvertently.
Typically if the motherboard or video card fail the external monitor would not work either.

My dell latitude d830 does not connect to a projector. I press the function key and the f8 key simultaneously and the laptop does not connect to the projector.


you hold FN and tap f8, and it SHOULD switch. You can try using any external monitor to see if it works. If another monitor works, it is not the machine, but the projector. you can also check the bios to see if the vga port is enabled, or, check your video driver to ensure it is enabled.

My Dell lattitude D830 won't connect with linksys


Right-click the wireless icon with red X and click on View Available wireless networks. Highlight the name of your wireless network and click Connect. If it asks you for the network key, type in the secuirty key of the router and press connect. That should do it. If you don't know the wireless security key of the router, you can see it by accessing the router's Setup Page through http://192.168.1.1 on your browser. It's under wireless tab then wireless security sub tab

Dell Lattitude C840 Display NO WORK


If you are getting lines on an external display, then the video card needs to be reseated or it is bad. Since you just had it worked on, I'd take it back and tell them you aren't satisfied (most places will guarantee their work 30 days).
