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.

My monitor comes on for about three seconds when I turn the computer or the monitor off/on and then it fades to black. It looks like the computer is booting up fine when I can briefly see the screen but...


Connect the monitor to the "video-output" port on your laptop, to see if the monitor is working correctly.
You make have to tell the laptop to send the video-output to "both" the internal LCD screen and the external monitor.

If it works, then your monitor is OK.
Restart your computer, and keep tapping the F8 key, until you get a menu of startup items. Choose the 'VGA' startup option, to select the "minimal" device-drivers for your video-card. With the "minimal" drivers, your monitor should still be working.

Power saver problems


Did it come out of power-save mode when you connected it to the other computer?

Does your laptop have a "toggle":
* video-output only to internal LCD screen
* video-output only to external monitor
* video-output to both displays
?

If so, toggle the setting to "external" or to "both".

7 year old Dell Inspiron 4150 has black screen. If I plug old crt monitor to serial port I get picture there fine. Computer is fine but monitor shot? Do I need a new LCD? Can I get one for $100 or less?


This is a common problem, I don't think the LCD per say is bad. The backlight tube may be bad or the power inverter that powers it may be bad. GO to support.dell.com and search for these parts, get them both and replace them both. It is tricky as you must dissasemble your laptop lid panel.

I want to connect a Ultrasharp 1907 FPt monitor to my Dell inspiron. I have a power cable and also one from monitor to lappy, do I need a driver?


Hi,
to toggle the screen between your laptop and the dell 19" monitor. Hold down the Fn key on the laptop and tap the F8 key. The screen would move to the external display.

There are three settings that can be done by the Fn + F8 key combination
1. Both the laptop and external monitor works
2. Only the external monitor would work
3. Only the laptop screen works


Thanks

During the move was your laptop dropped or bumped ? If so you might of unseated the video adapter from your laptop. Have you tried another monitor? I wouldnt rule the monitor as the problem. Try another monitor. If you have more questions or problems feel free to get back to me and I will do my best to talk you through a solution.
