Depending on what kind of laptop you have, your button may look different. Look at the Function keys (all those keys up at the top that have F's in front of them) and see if there is another colored symbol on any of them. You should find a colored symbol that looks like a rectangular monitor.

Press another key toward the bottom of your keyboard that probably says "Fn" or some other kind of "Function" key - not Alt, Ctrl, or Shift. Hold that Fn key down while you press the first key you found that looks like a monitor. That will change your laptop video output mode between several different modes like: laptop LCD panel only; LCD panel and external monitor; and external monitor only.

Dell Inspiron 1501 Power Button won't turn on ....

I would remove the hinge / power button cover again and make sure the little pip that presses the button down it not broken, also check the little circuit board with the switch on to make sure it's not disconnected.
Try switching on with the cover removed.

Dell 1545 laptop with white LED screen on start up. Works fine when connected to external screen via vga connector. Everything else works ok. Broken & remade connections between mobo & screen = no...

If the display works fine when connected to external screen via VGA connector then then the problem is either with the LCD display panel ( which consists of the display panel and inverter ) or the LCD cable that connects the LCD to the motherboard. You could try to re-seat the cable connection on the back of the LCD panel.

LCD works sometimes

This sounds like it may be a loose or dirty contact to me (hopefully) Anyhow, if you are in warranty, contact dell for free warranty support. If no warranty, you can give this a try:
  1. Unplug the power to the laptop and remove the battery.
  2. You are going to remove the keyboard bezel. This is the piece of plastic between the keyboard and the display. It has the power button on it. Open the laptop as wide as it will open.
  3. Insert a small flat head screwdriver into the notch at the right side of the bezel. Gently pry up the one side to start it, then using your fingers, carefully lift the bezel away from the laptop.
  4. Near the middle of the laptop you will see the cable that sends signal from the laptop to the lcd. Disconnect it and reconnect it firmly.... Hopefully this will resolve the issue. If not, the next step would be to disconnect/reconnect the video card. This would require a significant amount of teardown. If you're so inclined, I can explain the procedure in detail. Please let me know what happens.

I have an insignia MP3 player that went into a damp pile of laundry though did not get wet. Now-- it will go on and play if it is plugged into an outlet, though it won't turn on by the battery. what should...

The thing that happened to your Insignia is this and this only . The little piece that converts/ connects your battery to your MP3 is broken . Now , what happens is when you put it in an outlet theres enough power to just flow through and power your MP3 . Now , what to do about it . I know that Inisgnia DOES NOT sell any MP3s anymore , sadly . Im not sure if they have or have not stopped servicing them , though . I have an 8 GB Pilot myself . Its a great MP3 , especially because of the expandable memory , the dual audio jack , and the FM Tuner . But yea , thats what happened . If Insignia has stopped servicing them , you could buy another from 3rd party dealers , or just buy a completely new brand of MP3 . Hope this helps !
