Question about Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook
I plugged up a VGA cable from this laptop to a LCD RCA Flat Screen tv and for a while it worked fine, but today when I changed the Mode back to Computer Only and unplugged the cable and turned it off. When I turned it back on the computer screen was totally messed up. Broken screen with horizontal lines all around, couldn't click anything or read anything. It's totally messed up. Now when I plug it back into the VGA cable even if it's in Computer Only mode, it works perfectly fine. Any solutions?
Sounds like your screen resolution has gotten changed. Plug your VGA cable in and reset it to 1024x768. Then with the laptop on remove the VGA cable. When you connect your laptop to other devices like that, make sure you are not setting the resolution to the same as the TV.

On a dell laptop, the key combo FN F8 cycles through the display options. Laptop screen, External screen, Laptop and External screen at the same time. Try pressing the FN F8 key to get the video to display on both laptop and lcd and the same time. If that doesn't work you can also change the settings on what the laptop does when the lid is closed. Check the power settings in the control panel.

It's the connector problems.
If you know what to do, I can guide you:
First, remove the screw all over the LCD case, then you can see the connector, and flexible cables.
Second, remove the keyboard unit(by removing all screw on the unit), after removed, find the edge of the LCD cables, then you can see the connector.
1.Try clean this two connector with soft brushes ( paint brush is good ), by removing the cable first,then clean the flexible connector using wet tissue ( use the alcohol ).
2. If still exist, you need to replace the flexible with new ones.

If the display works fine when connected to external screen via VGA connector then then the problem is either with the LCD display panel ( which consists of the display panel and inverter ) or the LCD cable that connects the LCD to the motherboard. You could try to re-seat the cable connection on the back of the LCD panel.

On most laptops you have to select Function F8 to direct output to the projector or the projector and the laptop display.
