Black LCD Monitor Dell Inspiron 8600

If I connect the laptop to a external monitor, it works fine. The LCD monitor is black and I hardly see the image, if I look deeply.

    Problem is going to be either the lcd or the inverter. Either the backlight is going out on the lcd or the inverter is not providing enough power to the lcd.

Since the external monitor displays and dim image on the laptop's LCD screen then the fault is the LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

Dell computer monitor suddenly gone black


If the monitor remains black when you try to reboot, the CCFL (backlight) in the monitor has probably failed. If your look at the monitor from a sideways angle, you may be able to make out some graphics when the computer is on. If this is the case, you need to replace the CCFL or the whole LCD assembly. If you are uncertain, you should check the ribbon connectors going from the main case to the screen. If you get different results when on AC power, this could be a shorted battery or a bad power supply board. If your laptop has an output for an external monitor, you could use this to determine if the problem is with the monitor only, or with the graphics card and/or motherboard.

My screen on my Dell Inspiron Notebook went black. But I can barely see on the screen that the computer ran a problem check and said my computer was having a problem starting.


The invertor lamp has gone bad, so you would need to replace the LCD screen. there is nothing else you can do. try to connect an external monitor adn then press Fn + F8 to switch the video to the external monitor. if the image on the external monitor is fine then its the lcd. if the external monitor has the same image then motherboard problem. you can also try Fn + Up arrow key to increase the brightness.

Monitor does not work, computer starts up, dell prompts load, windows prompts load then screen goes black. i can hear everything loading but no display.


connect an external monitor on your machine and check if display is ok on the external monitor. if yes, try to re-install your video driver and check if display is ok on your laptop.

if both doesnt have display (external monitor and laptop's display) i suspected your lcd display is faulty.

Display after rain went black


If your video output works fine when connected to an external monitor, then the issue is with the LCD display panel. I’m afraid the only way to fix this is to have the LCD panel replaced.

Dell inspiron 1150 laptop black screen


Can you hear the Windows startup noises but can't hear it?

Does it work plugged into an external monitor? (Any good CRT or flat screen should work.


Be sure to plug in the screen before you turn it on.
If it doesnt output to the LCD automatically you may have to hit FN-F8 to switch to external.

If it works on external monitor you are just dealing with a screen problem of some sort - either a bad inverter or backlight in the LCD most commonly...

Let us know.
