Question about Dell Vostro 1000 Notebook
I have a dell vostro 1000 I just recently have more memory put into it. now when I turn it on the green a button with a lock on the keyboard blinks, an the screen is completely black. what does this mean? How can I fix it?
A blank screen with evidence that the motherboard is working (the Capital "A" green light is probably the CAPS LOCK on your computer's keyboard) initially points to an output or video problem. One quick way to see if that is the case is if you connect the computer to an alternate screen. Do so with the "sick" computer powered off at first. After being sure the connections are snug, be sure that the test monitor is powered on and then turn on your "sick" Dell. If the test monitor runs as your laptop's monitor ran when it was healthy then you know there is a cabling/backlight/inverter/screen problem. Some of these can be solved very easily, some more expensively as replacement may be required.
On some laptops pressing down firmly on the keyboard may seat a screen cable to motherboard connection. That often works on IBM Thinkpads with screens that fade in and out due to a poorly seated screen cable connection to the motherboard.
So let's see how the test to a known working screen goes.

Remove one of the memory modules. start the system. if nothing changed then put the memory module back and remove the other module. start the system. this worked for me?
