Question about Dell Inspiron 6000 Notebook

Display flashes DELL logo on power up and then goes black.

I was working on repairing the left hinge on my Inpiron 6000 laptop. After the repair was complete, but before I replaced the display bezel I cleaned the screen with a slightly damp cloth. When I powered up the machine the display flashed the DELL logo for a split second and then the display went black. The hard drive indicator was flashing so I assumed the machine was running. I cycled the power and tried it again and the results were the same.

Try pressing Fn + Monitor. It sounds like you have it set to pipe video out to an external monitor.

Hope this helps.

My Dell inspiron 6000 laptop stopped working. It shut off while I was online and when I try to restart it goes to the very first screen (black, says dell in blue letters) then the whole screen goes blank...


If the Dell Diagnostics passes then the issue is in the software part of the computer.. You may have to reinstall the OS inorder to address this issue.. Dell has a default partition on the computer and you can install with the same..
If you have windows vista on the computer then tap F8 when the computer turns on and then you will be able to see the advanced boot options.. Select repair my computer.. In the repair my computer screen select the dell factory image restore...
Your computer will go through the installation and it will be up and running...
If you have windows Xp then you have to turn on the computer and when the dell logo appears you have to simultaneously press control and the F11key.. You will be able to reinstall the OS in this way..

If this option is not available then reinstall using the disc The issue will be fixed

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.

When i start up my dell inspirion 6000 laptop the logo comes up and then screen goes black


When you see the Dell logo, it means the system is booting and you see the splash screen that is generated on the motherboard.
Apparently this is where it is stopping.
Here's what I would do: First when you boot the computer, press F12 to get the boot options. Choose the diagnostics and run the system diagnostics.
You can also try to press F8 to get the computer into safe mode, but I'm thinking if you see nothing other than the splash screen, that may not work. If you are presented with Windows boot options, choose safe mode and do a system restore.
The last thing you can do if you have the Dell system recovery disk is try to do a repair from that CD if it allows you to do so.

Black Screen Dell 600 Laptop


Hi,
The display drivers maybe corrupt.

Boot the machine into safe mode. Right click on My Computer (XP) Computer (Vista) and select manage from the sub menu.
When the window pops up select Device Manager.
A device list will populate. When it has look down the list for Display Adapters. Click on the + icon next to Display Adapters to it expands. Right click on the display adapter and select uninstall.

Restart the computer and let it boot in normal mode.
If it boots in normal mode let it detect the Display and install the drivers for it.
I would be a good idea to update the display drivers via the Dell support website.

If it still won't display in normal mode please post back.

Good luck.

HP dv9000 display works fine on battery but not AC


It's either the motherboard or the power supply.

I'd start with testing the power supply. If you've got a multi-meter great. Just measure the voltage and see if it fluctuates.

If not, check with a local repair shop to see if they have a power adapter they could use to test with.

Try booting into safe mode by continually pressing the F8 key while the system is starting up..this should allow you to get into windows where you can try to reinstall your drivers. Most likely this is a driver issue with the video card or your refresh rate or display resolution is set too high.
