Dell Inspiron sudden horizontal line

I was on a hurry, and while windows was shutting down, I just pushed the power button to force my laptop to shut down. Ugly! Yeah!... The problem it's that in the next turn on, my monitor shows a white-blue horizontal line always in the same position, no matter the refresh rate, non the screen size, non bios or windows screens, etc. Can I blow up my monitor with a forced turn off?... Did I?

Re: Dell Inspiron sudden horizontal line

Not that I've ever heard of, Usually that kind of issue is caused by blunt force trauma to the lid of your laptop......

Force off by pressing the power button for 10 seconds or more. Boot into safe mode, type msconfig in the run line, disable everything that starts. Restart normally, re-enable each program untill you find the one giving trouble.

My dell inspiron 1545 won't shut down went i click on the shut down icon it won't turn off .

Hold down the power button for 10 seconds. That will hard-shut the PC. Once that is done, fire it back up, and try again. Somethimes, windows will act goofy shutting down. Especially Vista when it is left on too long without shutting it down.

Laptop suddenly won't start

It could possibly be a bad motherboard. But before having the mobo replaced, I suggest you swap out parts from a working system to eliminate points of failure. if you don't have the parts, just remove the parts not needed for posting. this includes the hdd, optical drive, modem, bluetooth card, wireless card, and external devices. once you see the dell logo, install these devices one at a time and see what causes the problem. If you decided to have the mobo replaced, you can send your system to the depot for repairs. before this try pushing F12 when booting see if you can get onto the dell diagnostics.
