Try to connect the external monitor on your laptop's vga port and check if it displays on the monitor works , if it displays then is the problem with the screen.You may need to get the screen serviced or replaced ,if there is no display then try to replace the ram to different slot and check ...if it works

Hello there!

thanks for using fixya.com

I suggest that you do:
1. Turn off your laptop
2. remove the power adapter from the ac
3. remove the battery
4 then install your battery again.
5. connect the power adapters and plug it to power ac
6. turn on your laptop

If you have the same problem, try connection your laptop to a third party monitor, connect thru VGA port. Just to try if its going to display to another monitor or LCD screen.

If the same problem, you have a problem with your video card. then if its working to another monitor, then perhaps you have a lose connection from your own LCD.

You are right that the power is turning on and your laptop does have a power.

Better, contact your technician to check accurately your laptop and to do some testings on it.

Hope it helped you somehow.

Regards!

I updated the bios on the dell vostro 1000 and it wouldn't start. The power light stays on and you can hear the fan. This is followed by a long beep and 2 short beeps while the screen stays black.


Hi alkeith...
Turn on the computer while tapping F8, this will take you into the Safe Mode.
While your in the Safe Mode you can do a system restore.
Restore your computer back to an earlier time when it was working before you installed the bios change.
Left click on Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore.
This should solve your problem.

My dell vostro 1000 laptop's display ain


if i read this right, when you power up the laptop you get fan spin but no display ?, if you just get fan spin and the green power light and nothing else the you have a motherboard failure, if you get LED activity and it seems to be working but you only have no display the its more likely LCD failure, if you DO get activity try this : power off the system, press power button while holding down the D key, this will run the LCD BIST SELF TEST which will run through full colour screens if fails this test you will et a beep code, please bear in mind you will only be able to run that test if you get LED activity, if you dont have activity then the motherboard needs replacing

Wlan not working on dell vostro 1000


Try disable, then re-enable the driver, if still no luck, try to locate the wireless adapters properties an check to see if all is in order, ch, SSID, everything must match to the wireless signal. (by the way where is the signal coming from ?) your router ? or else where ?

Update Dell Vostro 1000 BIOS now wont turn on, nothing on display


You may be in for some trouble, a failed bios update isn't always an easy fix. if you can find the cmos battery try to remove that for a few seconds. you will also need a disk version of the bios, download that from dell on another computer and copy it to floppy or cd and see if you can boot to that and reinstall the bios.

when you press the power button what happens, does it light up and run the fan? Nothing appears on the screen?
