Right click on your desktop and select properties
Click Screen Saver
Power

In here you will find all the options to shutdown, hibernate etc. when on battery or adapter and also what to do when shutting the lid,
set these as required.

    If it's in "hibernate", have you tried pressing the power button once?



    Also check the "Advanced" tab and make sure you have clicked "do nothing" for the option "when I close the lid of my portable computer "

    and under the hibernate uncheck "enable hibernation"

While at home I plug a wide screen monitor into my Dell studio 1737 Laptop. As long as I keep my lid open the icons and print on my monitor are the right size. When I close the lid, icons and prints get...


You appear to be cloning your internal LCD and as long as it is active, the resolution setting for the LCD is also controlling the resolution of the external monitor. When the LCD is closed, then the default resolution of the external monitor is being used by Windows 7 (It apparently has autodetected the size of the monitor and knows the Highest optimal resolution it will display.) The higher the resolution, then smaller the icons.
To resolve, go to display properties and check the resolution of the internal LCD and then set the External display to the lower resolution.
You should be able to wake the system with an external keyboard, by pressing the spacebar, if the system is sleeping

Dell Inspiron 1300 - When I re-open the lid,Screen stays Black !


Your laptop either goes to hibernate or sleep mode when you close the lid. Then, when you open the lid up, the screen is still off because your pc already hanged/froze and could not wake up at all (usual problem in vista). Off course, hard shutdown would fix it. But actual fix is under power options on your control panel. Check your current scheme and edit it. There are options there that you can select to "do nothing when closing the lid"

Hope this helps

Dell latitude problem!!!!!


The cable connecting the motherboard to the screen might have a few open wire. It's why the problem occur when you move the lid.
download the service manual to have access to this cable (HERE: : http://www.elhvb.com/mobokive/edwin/laptops/Dell/LATITUDE/C510-610/C510-610.PDF)
Unwrap very gently the cable from is sticky tape and you should find a dozen of very small wire, one or two might need to be reconnected together.
Or You might also have a problem with the VGA card, in that case your only chance is to find a replacement one on ebay, or if the VGA card is integrated to the motherboard, then....live with it.
You should find all the details on the service manual.
Good luck tell me if it did solve anything, and please rate..
cheers

Dell D610 Latop screen wont resume after it has been shut


Hi,
it is possible that the latch is sticking. located under the lid.
try pressing the small button, with a small blunt screwdriver.
Failing this, adjust the settings in My Computer/Control Panel/Display settings or Similar. If they,re adjusted to hibernate/sleep/shut-down computer, when i close the lid.
this is where the problem will be. Try changing to Do-Nothing or similar.

Thankyou For Using Fixya.

Open/Closing


CONTROL PANEL --> POWER OPTIONS --> ADVANCED TAB

Select "When I close my lid (or something to that effect)" and change it to "do nothing" or "ask what to do". There is nothing I hate more than a misbehaving hibernation mode!

Logging Off and won't come back on what to do


You can shut it down hard (by holding the power button until it shuts off), wait at least 10 seconds (for your hard drive to stop spinning) then start it up and then try shutting down windows normally instead of just closing the laptop's lid. You can then go into user accounts and delete all accept for your Administrative account (even Guest account), and see if that cures your ills.
Good Luck.
