Question about Dell Inspiron 4000 Notebook

Inspiron 4000 black screen

I changed themes and the computer now comes on with an all black screen with icons barely visible. If you open anything you cant see but spots of it. I can't get into any program to change anything. Even in last good start and safe start it comes up this way.

    Had the same problem with my Dell Inspiron 4000. Bought a new flex cable and inverter board on ebay.....works great. If that does not solve your problem then the backlight is bad.

Try an external monitor if you can see that ecerything you created is as then your LCD is on the way out. I would then say its a coincidence it happened at the time you changed the theme.

    When in the external monitor try to change things back however if it still dont do it you may need to reinstall Windows but before you do come back here to see what happens with my suggestion and there is an alternate before installing again.

Hp Pavilion DV-4000 Screen


Are you saying the lcd screen is black? It seems like it booted up but nothing appears on the screen?

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.

Inspiron 1501 wont start


Does it look like it is running with the exception of the screen being black?

Does it ever post anything on the screen when you hit the power button?

Beep tones and blinking lights tells thetechnicians what is going on with the laptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issue when you hear beeps or blinking lightscontinuous.

Black color screen


Change your screen resolution to the highest setting first, in control panel, appearance/ themes. Next Push smart button on bottom right of monitor. Cinema mode should be highlighted hit autoset on monitor. Next hit the FUN button and highlight the 4:3 screen setting. This will expand your image to fit the screen without giving it that stretched and distorted appearance.

Black screen


Hello,

yes, its the light. Its called screen bulb. The bulb is burnt, that's why the screen cannot be lighted up.

The solution is to take it for repairs. There is not settings or adjustment required.

Best regards.

The mute wont turn on,on the dell inspiron


Have you tried going into the speaker settings? We'll assume with a new PC you have Vista installed, click the speaker icon on the right side of the tray, and selecting "Mixer" will enable access to volume control for the output devices and for applications.

If no speaker icon is visible To check the volume controls in Windows Vista, click Start and then click Control Panel. Choose Hardware And Sound and then click Adjust System Volume under the Sound section. The Volume Mixer window will open, and you should see volume sliders for Device and Applications. Click and drag the sliders to view the volume level percentages. If the speaker icons show a circle with a red slash, click the icon so the speakers are no longer muted.

Furthermore, you’ll want to double-check all of your master volume and mute settings.

Does this happen with both the power plugged and running on battery?
Check the power modes, because the screen intensity is one of the power saving settings.
