Question about Dell Vostro 1000 Notebook

Dell Vostro 1000 will not recognise television

The Dell Vostro 1000 comes with a VGA connection only. I wish to playback films etc through a Panasonic Viera television with an S Video connection. I have purchased a VGA to S Video conversion cable but the laptop refuses to recognise the attached television (tapping F8 simply gets a No external display attached message). I have also tried changing the Display Settings in the Control Panel but again the laptop does not recognise that an external display is attached. Any ideas gratefully received.

You're right, RescueTechLA, but I think most Dell laptops use FN+F8.

Are you sure it's "F8" only? Usually most laptops use the FN+F5 to change video to external display.

Try to switch the video display from your laptop to the TV by holding down the blue function key by the space bar and depressing the key that has the blue CRT/LCD on it.

My dell vostro 1000 won't turn on the green light


Try to do this: (Draining flea power)
1. Unplug the ac adapter (if connected)
2. Remove the battery
3. Press and hold the power button for at least 10sec.
4. Put back the battery and ac adapter
5. Turn it on

- check if you can now boot to windows, if not there could be a hardware problem and next step would be running some diagnostic test on the computer for hardware problem.

Heard pop and dell vostro 1000 cut off and will not come back on


Based on the symptoms (Power light on cord is on when not connected to laptop but goes out as soon as you plug it in), the motherboard has to be replaced. YOu may call dell to ask about their out-of-warranty depot or you can call their spare parts sales dept to purchase the motherboard, then find a local tech to replace it.

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 ?
