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.

I cant get my persario cq56 notebook computers web cam opened


Activate your webcam [START then PROGRAMS and then choose your webcam - usually in MediaSmart]. If you are able to see a live image on the screen it means your webcam operates properly. Now your should check the SETTINGS of your webcam [the icon] and see if under SNAPHOTS the adjustments are fitting your needs.
Because your capture is totally black I'd assume you have wrong values for BRIGHTNESS, or for CONTRAST [or for both...]. There is where the adjustments come.

GOOD LUCK!

Screen icons are almost invisible from directly in front but visible if looked at from angle mouse too faint to see clearly although very faintly visible


while you have not given much detailed information I agree with the answers pointing to the inverter or backlight "bulb" issue.

However, having come across a few exotic variations* on the theme, do you have a utility app where you can set the screen brightness, contrast gamma ?
Some graphic card control software like Intel allows you to color balance the screen and to set the gamma, contrast or brightness range. getting these settings way out of normal range can lead to the phenomenon that you can not see the icons when looking directly at it but if you look sideways at an angle you can see them!

let me know!

*A client once had set the font color to the same like the background color and called me up in desperation claiming his computer is broke there is no text on the display anymore....
Indeed there was no text of any menu visible just blank until I quickly figured out what he did!

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.

The volume of my speaker is so low, i cant barely hear it, i cant see anything wrong with it, i checked the AC in, i checked the jack for any short circuit still iget a very low volume out of the speaker...


look on the lower right corner of your screen. there should be a volume icon down there. it looks like a speaker. click that and see if it is set up or down low. if it is low turn it up then it should work. this controls the amount of sound coming out of the sound card on your computer.

Hi my monitor has bright colours on it and i cant make out what im doin its really bright and hurts my eyes


Turn off the pc but leave the monitor on. unhook the monitor from the pc. the screen SHOULD run a "self test" with a moving white green red blue box. if that box is on a bare black screen and there are no bright spots or cracks or anything weird looking, then the screen itself is ok. If however, you see odd shades of blue and pink and it looks cracked or scratched or has lines in it, then it is time to replace that screen.
