Dell Latitude D600 - Screen goes blank while booting

Any ideas?

    When i hit FN 8 it does cycle but only on the laptop LCD....then it goes blank again. Nothing ever comes up on the vga.

    Generally, it's Function F4, not F8. But I'd think that could also depend on the brand.


  • Sean Kelly May 11, 2010

    Have you tried pressing FN 8 multiple times (pausing in between)? Sometimes you have to cycle to the correct mode. If you have done that, you might go into your display properties -- then clicking on the setting and advanced buttons. From there you should be able to make some further adjustments to both displays...

My Dell Latitude D630 has a blank screen.


Check your hardware light on the exterior of your computer and see if it is lit and blinking. If it is, you have an operating system, but just can't see it. That tells me it may be several things:

1. The LCD cutoff switch is in the off position
2. Toggle (Fn) the display to the internal settings of the LCD panel. It may be set to display an external monitor only
3. Plug in an external monitor. If it doesn't display on the external, after pressing the Fn key you have a failed video adapter. If it does display on the external it is most likely a back light or inverter failure.

you can try Fn + F8 and see if the display was toggled for external (Wait about 15 seconds before pressing a 2nd time) that is the keystroke from (LCD, External, LCD and External)
If no go, see if your system keeps video displayed in the safe mode (F8 at boot, select Safe mode from the boot menu)
you can also run diags on the LCD (Power button + D) or PSA diagnostics and see if the video stays on out of the operating system (Power +Fn)

I have a Dell D600. It starts up to boot page and after 3-5 seconds the picture disappears but the laptop is still running. The indicator light near the power button with a 9 on it stays lit.


I have a similar problem currently. Boot and try pressing Fn+Up arrow repeatedly to raise brightness. Then flick the little button right above your volume control that tells the laptop youve closed it. If you see the screen flicker on/off then its the button. Otherwise reboot and try shining a light at the screen from different angles and see if you can see dark images. If you can see windows boot up but dark, then it is almost certainly your LCDs backlight. If you can't see dark images, next try using the VGA output plug at the back of your laptop to connect to a different monitor. Within less than 1 minute you should see the image on the external screen. If not, try pressing Fn+F8 a few times to toggle the output. If still no picture on the external screen your video card might be fried. If you do get a picture on the external with or without seeing dark images on the laptop, then it is a problem with either the LCD screen, it's inverter, or the screens flex cable. Check Dell support for your systems original parts list HERE. You will need your laptops Service Tag number, which is on a sticker on the bottom of your laptop.

Hope this helps, Good luck.

System won't start up.


OK, your system appears to be posting but you have a NO VIDEO issue. Most likely the issue is a backlight failure of the LCD screen. If available, you can connect an external monitor to the VGA port and press FN+F8 to toggle between the LCD and the External screen (Wait 15 seconds between toggles)
The components are fairly easy to replace and available on Ebay.

My Dell D610 laptop monitor has went completely white.


I don't have a Dell D610 with me, there should be a VGA/SVGA port on the back. If not, there's a DVI port.

If the video has not gone bad, you should be able to. Connect the monitor to the back vga/svga port or DVI port.

The are several controls to activate the monitor for Dell computers.

CTRL ALT <
CTRL ALT F10
FN F8 (CRT/LCD)
FN D
FN F12

Good Luck.

Screen


Try re-seating the video cable to the video card, information is available here:

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/latd600/sm/display.htm#1001090

If re-seating has no effect, see if you can connect an external monitor to the VGA port on the back and get video by pressing Fn+F8. If you get video on an external monitor, the LCD is likely failed.

If the LCD is in question, you can try a new inverter 1st. Then if that fails, replace the LCD too.

Both are available here:

Display not working properly


You should be able to plug in an external (Desktop type) monitor . Look for a connector on the side or back of the laptop. If the external monitor works, you have pretty much diagnosed that you have a LCD problem.
