Question about Dell Vostro Computers & Internet
What were you opening the laptop for? Depending on how much of it you had to disassemble, I would venture to say you probably left something unplugged. I would crack the case open again and check all connections, make sure the hard drive is fully locked into place, etc.

If you connected the laptop to an external monitor via VGA and the
display, then it is not "an NVIDIA GPU defect" .
The video chipset connected to the LCD screen is the same connected to the external VGA port, and is working fine since picture is OK on monitor.
More likely the problem is either LCD ribbon cable, or LCD display, the fact that the backlight is working means that the inverter is also working.

Your laptop either goes to hibernate or sleep mode when you close the lid. Then, when you open the lid up, the screen is still off because your pc already hanged/froze and could not wake up at all (usual problem in vista). Off course, hard shutdown would fix it. But actual fix is under power options on your control panel. Check your current scheme and edit it. There are options there that you can select to "do nothing when closing the lid"
Hope this helps

SOURCE: I cannot execute my integrated
Did you try using the software that is built into the computer to use your webcam? If not just search webcame in the start menu. I tried looking for the drivers but seems that there aren't any. Sorry if this wasn't much help.

Try going back to the previous version of the BIOS to see whether the problem continues. You can download older versions from the Dell website and install them over the existing version.
If this does resolve the issue, I would report the problem to Dell and as a precaution inspect the fan and the ventilation screens and ducts for debris and clean as required.
If you're good with a screw driver and the laptop is no longer under warranty, you might even consider taking the laptop apart to clean out any dust build-up from the ventilation ducts.
If this answer is any help at all, please rate either 3 or 4 thumbs. (1 or 2 thumbs are considered "horrible" and "bad")
Thank you for using FixYa and have a Happy New Year!
