Hi, glad 2 help with that hp, post your problems as you did this one. so i and others can get the vote to boost the rank, even though the solution helped you, you can't rate the solution, if it is within another product area. as for the dell issue look for the key marked fn or f lock, while holding that key down, hit the f5 or f6 key (should be marked with a little screens symbol) this is for switching between display's. if it does not activate the lcd, it may be broken. then you can maybe find one on ebay or dell. but as you said it is getting old and the cost of a replacement may be excessive. that is $ you could put on a new notebook. (just something you may think about.) if you need further assistance,reply. good luck!

My dell 1464 no display when on off agine


No Display? If the laptop seems to boot up except the screen is black try this:
Shine a flashlight on the dark screen to see if you barelysee the icons on the desktop. If so, then the LCD Inverter is bad.

Plug in an external monitor and see if the display shows up on it. It can beany kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vgacable to connect to your computer's vga port. If so that proves yourvideo card is ok. The video will show on most systems when you rebootwithout you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN(Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correctkey for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key willnormally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

If you see no icons by shinning a flash light and the external monitor works,then your screen is bad. If you see no icons by shinning the flash lightand nothing shows on the external monitor, then most likely your video card isbad.

White screen


First see if the power on self-test (Fn+ Power) or the LCD BIST (D+Power) will run. The Diags are normally on a blue screen with white test, the LCD BIST is simply 4 Solid Color Screen looking for defects in the LCD panel.
If you hear beeps/windows sounds when the system boots and the LCD BIST test does nothing then the LCD has likely failed and you will need a new one. You can try an external monitor and see if you get video on an external screen.
If you don't then try these steps:

Hi ! i have dell vostro 1510 and which is not booting up. even the bios is not showing up. Black screen appears and the loading lights blinks for 4-5 times then nothing happens. Power button is glowing...


- try to plug an external monitor on your laptop
- if you can see a screen on the external monitor, then you have a faulty LCD
- if you don't see anything on the external monitor, then you have a faulty motherboard

Dell inspiron does not boot up


Do you see anything on screen? Dell logo? I will assume you see nothing. Not even a Dell logo.

First test your power supply with a meter to be sure it is putting out 18-19 volts. If good, remove the laptop battery and try again. The next tests should be done with the battery not connected to the laptop.

Remove the hard drive and see if it boots. If not, next remove the dvd drive from the laptop and try to boot. If no good, remove the ram, clean the contacts on the ram and the slot with a pink pencil eraser....gently, just make them shiny. Try to boot with no ram/hdd/dvd. Put the ram back in and try again. Try connecting the laptop to an external monitor.

If after all this you still cannot get a Dell logo at boot time, the mainboard is likely dead. A refurbished one (with only 90 day warranty) will probably cost you at least $250 from Dell. Please let this one go and look at a new laptop.....sorry.

Hope this helps :)

Dell Vostro 1400 LCD Showing Black Screen


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.

View screen only 1/4 readable


Connect to an external monitor, see if the display is normal there. If it is, then reseat the LCD cable connection on the motherboard. If LCD is still messed up, then replace the LCD.

If the problem is the same on external monitor, then replace the motherboard.

Acer aspire 5220 booting problem


Try connecting to an external monitor. If it displays on the external monitor then the LCD is probably dead. If it doesn't display on the external monitor, its a problem with the video card.

Dell C400 will not boot using LCD screen when cold


I have seen this problem before, after booting to the external monitor go into the display settings and try setting the resolution to 1024 X 768 and the color settng to 16 bit or preferably 32 bit. If you can do this, then shut down the laptop remove the external monitor and try booting on the LCD display. BPCS
