The LCD backlight is most likely faulty. If you look at the LCD screen to one side you could see a slight video image, provided the video card is working. To check if the video card is working connect the laptop's video output connector to an external monitor and then boot up your laptop. If you get an image on the monitor, then the problem is with the laptop's LCD display.
As I stated it could be the backlight or a faulty invertot that powers the backlight or it could be the cable/s that connects the LCD to the motherboard.
Try reseating these cables (requires dismantling the laptop).
If this doesn't work then you have a faulty LCD and needs to be replaced. Alternately if cost is too expensive, just use the laptop with an external monitor.

Hi,

Check it.

Download the cd iso and burn it to a cd using your favorite program.

Insert the CD into the drive and boot your computer. You will then be brought to a screen in which you will be asked to download the drivers, select your partition, select you username, and change the password.

Hope this helps

BRightness FN control does not work. I tried control panel settings to adjust brightness but there is no slider. I am running Windows 7 on a Dell Inspirion 1501 laptop. Please help!


Hi,

This looks to be a software issue. if the slider in the control panel is off, and it is not responding with the Fn key. then you should check the display adaptor in device manager. install the appropriate driver if needed.

I have a dell 1501 inspirion laptop how to i re boot it to factory settings i did it once but don't remember how


If you want to get it back to the original settings without the latest patches, turn on the computer and hit <Ctrl> and <F11> together when the blue bar displays with www.dell.com during the boot sequence. If you miss the timing, let the computer boot-up then shut down again and retry. This will restore from a compressed partition on your hard drive. Thus anything you have added (programs/files) will disappear. Do not power down during the Restore sequence or you could end up with an unusable machine.

Use the Windows System Restore if you just have a bad driver.

I hope this helps.

Pxe-e61: media test failure, operating system not found


First, take out any CDs/DVDs and try to boot again. If that doesn't work, your hard drive may be defective.

There will be a cover on the bottom of your laptop that holds the hard drive (easy access). You can try removing and reinserting the hard drive and then booting the PC afterward.

If that doesn't work, you will likely have to replace the hard drive, but best advice would be to take it to a computer technician for further analysis.

No display


The new hard drive has to be formatted first, then install the operating system. It cannot find the Master Boot Record. Google Master Boot Record repair on the Microsoft Knowledge Base websiter for instructions to rebuild the MBR..
