Question about Dell Inspiron 9100 Notebook

1 Answer

Vertical black bars screen

When I started my computer, vertical black bars went from the top of my screen to the bottom across the whole screen. It looked like a jail cell. I restarted and the problem went away. This is the first time this has happened, but sometimes when I start my computer, the screen does not even turn on.

Try connecting an external monitor to the 15 VGA (video) plug on the laptop and see if it displays properly on the monitor. You may have to direct the video from the laptop to the monitor by holding down the blue <FN> (key next to the space bar) and then press down the <F8> key.
If the display on the external monitor is correct, then you either have a problem with the laptop's LED display screen or cable that connects the LED to system board. Here is a link for the service manual:

It may be due to bad LCD screen, LCD cable or Video board. If you dare, open the monitor and tighten the cable connections Go to www..chub.com .for details of How To.

SOURCE: so i open my laptop.

This could be caused by a couple of problems but you are going to need access to a second computer to determine the problem.

1) You have a disk that is failing and it has had an error. Got to the disk makers site and down load their diagnostic program and check the disk. This is a stand alone CD so you don't need to boot into the OS.

Another program that can temporarily fix errors is http://www.dposoft.net/ This program will stop after fixing the first error unless you buy it. Again, this is a stand alone.

If it is a disk error, you need to quickly get your data off and install a new disk.

Don't have a second computer? then you need to take it to a local computer store where they can remove the disk, install it in a desktop and check it for errors.

2) This could be a virus, but I think #1 is your problem. TrendMicro.com has a free online virus scan if you can install the disk in a second computer.

SOURCE: screen particially blacking out with vertical

Tryconnecting an external monitor to the laptop. You may have to select the videooutput to display on the external monitor by holding down the blue key and pressing the blue CRT/LCD (located on one of the keys, likeF8,F9, etc..). If the problem occurs on the external monitor with the batteryor AC power, then you have a problem with either the video card or motherboardin the laptop. If the problem does not happen using the external monitor thenyou laptop's LCD display is going bad.
