Question about Dell Inspiron 1000 Notebook
My Dell inprion 1000 has been perfect, then one day the screen went blank and in a very short time after, a small box appered in the middle of the screen with about an inch margin around it. In the box there were colored lines running up and down. Now I can start it and it will do just fine for a short while then it happens again. I took it to a reair shop and in a very short time without even starting in up, was told it was the video chip and that it needed a new mortherboard, costing more than it was worth, might as well buy a new machine. I felt that they just didn't want to work on it.
What do you think?
Check whether it is only the screen that is faulty by
connecting it via a vga monitor cable to a desktop screen.
If you do not have a friend with a desktop computer then most repair shops will do this for you.
Once connected there is a function button which will switch between the laptop screen and the monitor
If it's only the screen it may be worth fixing, circa $200
