Look at the "F" keys. One of them has a drawing of a screen. Press it and your external screen should work, or, plug the external screen in before youboot up. The pc will detect the external scree and switch automatically.

Simply use the external video port. It may require an adapter depending on the monitor you plan to use.

SOURCE: Dell Inspiron 1501 laptop screen will not work.

If you hear the hard drive spinning and you think Windows is working but you can't see an image then :-
You could have a defective screen - a defective inverter or a CCFL lamp or simply the video cable needs reseating. After reseating the video cable and the problem is still there then :-
To determine if you have a LCD screen or video card problem, read this and follow the instructions.

Defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom:

  • Screen flashs on red/pink and off.
  • Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal.
  • Picture flickering with dim display or appear black.
  • Picture flickering on and off.
All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp

Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power it up, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight.

Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

The LCD is definitely shattered, looks like pressure was applied from the back of the screen (Pressed on, laid on etc) and the LCD will need to be replaced.

When was the last time you used it, and were there any problems? To find the solution to this problem is a matter of elimination. You should check the following:

Step 1 - Power

WARNING - BEFORE PROCEEDING, PLEASE FOLLOW THE FOLLOWING SAFETY PRECAUTIONS!

1. REMOVE THE POWER ADAPTER FROM YOUR LAPTOP
2. REMOVE ALL PERIPHERALS
3. WEAR A WRIST-GROUNDING STRAP, AND CONNECT IT TO AN UNPAINTED, METAL SURFACE. IF ONE IS NOT AVAILABLE, TOUCH AN UNPAINTED METAL SURFACE TO DISCHARGE ANY STATIC FROM YOUR BODY

Step 2 - Remove and reset basic hardware items

Remove and reseat the items mentioned below in the order they're mentioned:

For instructions on how to do this, please refer to your user manual. If you no longer have it, you can download it from here: http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/ins1545/

The video information will automatically switch to the externalmonitor.2. If you power up thelaptop first then you can switch the video output to the external monitor bypressing the Fn key and one of the Function keys, depending upon your make andmodel laptop. You can also toggle between the external monitor or both LCDscreen plus the external monitor or back to LCD screen only by pressing the Fnkey plus one of the function key.

Hello, I have a 12.1-inch Dell Inspiron Mini netbook, and I was wondering if I can contact it to Dell flat screen monitor?


Depending upon the model, it looks like many of the Dell Inspiron Mini's have a VGA output and will accept an external monitor. Look for a 15 Pin VGA connector on the rear or side of the mini. If you provide a specific model of mini, I can verify 100% if it will accept an external monitor.

Want to connect my Dell laptop to my ViewSonic monitor-help!


Just connect the VGA 15 pin cable from the monitor to the VGA port on the laptop.
Turn on the monitor then the computer.
Hopefully Windows will find new hardware and ask you to run the multiple display wizard.
If the external display doesn't automatically turn on then you need to hit a keystroke combination. FN+ the key on the top row that has an icon that looks like a picture of a monitor. Usually an F key.
This keystroke combination switches between LCD, external Monitor and both.
When you get video on the external monitor, then you can get into the display control panel and change the resolutions and display modes to your liking!
Good luck!

Your dell should pick the TV up as a monitor if you have the VGA cable connected. The vga cable has a blue color on the TV but on the laptop, the color of the port is usally brown or dark in color. Windows should pick up on the new device and enable it. The Dell has an Fn key combination to allow you to toggle through the integrated / external monitor choices that you would have with two monitors active, that being clone both desktops to both monitors, extend the desktop from the laptop to the TV, use only the tv and turn the integrated off, use just the integrated and leave the TV off. The key combination is: Fn + F8

Try this...Hook up an external monitor to the VGA port and hit the FN+F8 key. This should switch video over to a monitor.

From there you can access your files and move them.

My dell inspiron b130 boots up but monitor is black


After your laptop boots up into windows, hold down the Fn key and as your doing that press the F8 button that should switch the output from the vga connetor to the LCD screen on the laptop.

If you still don't get video then you'll have to reseat the LCD cable from the back of the LCD screen to where it connects to the motheboard.

If you still don't get video then its either going to be a bad LCD or a bad motherboard.

Most laptops have a combination of buttons you have to press on the keyboard to get it to output on the monitor output. Try pressing the FUNCTION KEY or FUNC/FN key usually found in the bottom left hand side of the keyboard. Keep that button held down while press one of the number keys. Usually the number key will have a picture of a TV screen on it. Might be number 8 or 9. Press both keys at the same time a you can switch between laptop screen, Sony LCD or you can have both..

Screen is blank


You have a VGA port on that machine that will allow you to connect a standard monitor. After you have connected the monitor you will need to tell the machine to switch the display. This is done by holding down the Fn key (3 keys to the left of the space bar) and pressing the key that looks like a monitor (typicaly the f4 key). Hit that combination a couple of times till your external monitor displays. This is also worth a try in case you have, accidentaly, set your notebook to only show on an external display. If that works, and everything else seems alright it means that you need either a power inverter or a CCFL lamp. Determining which will require patience and a power meter.
