Screen size on start up and bios is small but fine in windows

When i switch dell 1100 laptop on,dell screen shows but is small.
When bios screen is on that is small aswell.
When windows starts up and is running,the screen is fine.
On most laptops,removing battery and cmos battery and shorting cmos terminals would correct this fault but don't know where cmos battery is and update or re-installing drivers don't help.

My desktop doesn't take up the whole screen, it's staying centered and small. My cursor doesn't travel outside of the centered screen, any ideas as to how I can get my whole screen back?


First go to Control Panel - Display - Settings and change the screen resolution to 1024X768
If you cannot change the screen resolution, then probably the video driver is corrupted or not installed, then re-install the video driver.
You can download the drivers from Dell WEB site, thesupport download page. Make sure you select your model desktop or laptop,better still, type in the Service Tag number, it is printed on the label on thebottom of the laptop and on the back or sides of a desktop. (If the Service Taglabel is missing then go into the BIOS setting and on one of the BIOS pages,the Service Tag number will be displayed). This will open the page where thespecific drivers for your model computer are located. Also make sure you selectthe Windows XP or Vista version of the drivers for your Windows operatingsystem. Click on this link to download the drivers: - http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/index.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen

My Dell inspiron 1100 screen size upgrade


We've seen this problem many times. The screen you installed is not compatible with the laptop. They sent you an OEM 15" screen. You will also see the DELL logo when the computer starts up is out of place. This shows that the screen is a lower/higher resolution than what your motherboard's video card can support. Unfortunately this screen will not work with your laptop.
Best bet if you want to upgrade to 15" screen is find a used laptop screen supplier in your area and go in and try different 15" screens. You can try to match the number at the back of your screen which looks like:

LTNxxxxxx
LPxxxx
Bxxxxx
Wxxxx

Try getting any of these ones and check compatibility:
LTN150XD-L01
LP150X2-A2
LP150X09-B3

Dell 1720 screen


If you can see the vertical lines during POST, try to check the vertical lines in BIOS. If the vertical lines are there in BIOS, the only thing you can do is to replace your LCD screen.

I-INC monitor to use with my Dell Laptop, no signal to monitor?


When Windows logo disappear on the I-INC, do you still see it on the Laptop monitor?

All laptops have function keys to switch the screen between the external monitor (I-INC) and laptop monitor. On your laptop, it is Fn+F8 key. Press them once and wait for 3 seconds, it will switch the image between 2 monitors (external monitor ONLY, laptop monitor ONLY, and both).

During start-up, do not close the laptop cover. Because it may put your laptop into a stand-by mode and turn off the screen. You need to modify this Power Option setting within the Control Panel.

Dell Inspiron 1100 Bios and ACPI


Please contact your system vendor for an updated bios. If you are unable to obtain an updated bios or the latest bios supplied by your vendor is not ACPI compliant, you can turn off ACPI mode during text mode setup. To do this, simply press the F7 key when you are prompted to install storage drivers. The system will not notify you that the F7 key was pressed - it will silently disable ACPI and allow you to continue your installation."

RESOLUTION
Manually install the Standard PC hardware abstraction layer (HAL):
1. Reboot the computer to restart Setup.
2. When Setup starts again, press F7 when you see the "Press F6 if you need to install a third-party SCSI or RAID driver" screen.
Windows automatically disables the installation of the ACPI HAL and installs the Standard PC HAL. You should also contact the manufacturer of your computer to obtain a BIOS that is fully ACPI compliant

Display not showing full screen


This is generally a driver glitch. Uninstall the video drivers from the device manager, then reboot. It will find the hardware and reinstall the drivers. Then adjust the screen resolution from display properties. This should bring your screen back to normal size.
