Looks like the backlighting on the display has failed, sometimes it is just a lose cable, buy most often the LCD needs to be replaced.

to check the cable see the manual at http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/ins9400/ for how to get to the LCD cables (usually just under the cover that the power button is on)

How do I adjust brightness on my Dell Latitude D6...


Look for a key labeled "Fn" (blue lettering) on the lower left side of the keyboard

Hold the "Fn" key and then use the Up/Down arrows to adjust brightness.

If that doesn't work, reboot your laptop and get into the BIOS. There is a screen for brightness. I don't recall how it is labeled, but it's one of the last pages as you cycle through the BIOS options.

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.

This might be as a result of CDROM Drive speed.
Generally the spin speed of CDROM Drives are always different, and there are some desktop CDROM drives that have Spin Speed as High as 60X...yes, because I have used one before. What in this case, I would suggest you do this, : Provided the Notebook CDROM Drive can read other disks, then just try and use your desktop to burn the CD disk onto another CD Disk, then try the newly burnt disk on your laptop.
And if you have an external drive, you can just copy the CD contents using a NERO burner software or any other CD Burning software, and transfer it to your laptop.
Hope this help you out.
Goodluck!

Lcd inverter--need to replace


They aren't hard to replace. If you can find one on eBay, get it and use the on-line manuals from Dell's web site. They are very clear and easy to follow.

Dropped laptop


Press and hold the <Fn> key while powering the system on. This will run the Dell Diagnostics. Another more intense diagnostic program is located on a Dell CD that you should have received with your laptop. Look for one that has “Diagnostics and utilities” listed under the “Contents”. You will have to boot from that CD disk. To do this, power on your laptop and tap the <F12> key to bring you to the “One time boot menu”. Insert the CD and then select CD/DVD drive and hit <Enter> key. Select the “Run the 32 Bit Dell Diagnostics”.
