Question about Dell Inspiron 1545 Black Intel Celeron 900 22GHz 2GB DDR2 RAM 250GB 5400RPM Hard Drive DVDRW Windo (609722305754) PC Notebook
My Inspiron 1545 began by having a red line through the middle of the screen. Now the screen in blank-always, nothing ever appears. A LCD replacement was attempted and the screen was still blank. Additionally, an external monitor can be hooked up and displays perfectly. Is this a graphic card problem?

Well it is most likely a issue with the Video driver as you are able to boot to the safe mode.I would suggest going back to the safe mode and deleting the present driver for the video from the device manager.before you restart the system just download the latest version from the support.dell.com so that you can reinstall it.Also check in the graphic properties which screen is set to be the defuat.Incase still not working i would suggest reinstalling the operating system before replacing any hardware.

I HAVE POSTED THE SOLUTION FOR THIS BEFORE. ON THE LEFT REAR THE SCREW FROM BOTTOM OF UNIT TO THE LCD. LOOK INSIDE WHERE THE TOP AND BOTTOM GO TOGETHER YOU WILL SEE A PIECE OF ALUMINUM TAPE IF IT STICKS OUT PAST THE BOSS TOWARD THE PC BOARD. WHEN YOU MOVE LCD THERE IS ENOUGH FLEX FOR IT TO SHORT TO PC BOARD. TRIM THIS OFF AND YOUR PROBLEMS WILL BE SOLVED. CAUTION REMOVE BATTERY AND UNPLUG FROM AC BEFORE THE ABOVE. BOBBY

If you hear the hard drive spinning and you think Windows is working but you can't see an image then :-
You could have a defective screen - a defective inverter or a CCFL lamp or simply the video cable needs reseating. After reseating the video cable and the problem is still there then :-
To determine if you have a LCD screen or video card problem, read this and follow the instructions.
Defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom:
Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power it up, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight.
Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

First of all, check that the laptop is set to output video to the LCD. There should be a function key which will determine whether it is outputting video to the built-in LCD, the external monitor, or both. That should be holding down your "FN" key and hitting "F8." If it is on CRT ONLY, it should switch within 1-2 keypresses.
Secondly, take a good bright flashlight and shine it directly at the LCD panel from about 1-2 inches away. If you can actually see the graphics on the screen faintly in the background, your backlight is not turning on. The backlight is literally a bulb which lights up the screen, and they can burn out. It is repairable, and shouldn't cost more than $150.00 from a reputable repair shop.
