Computer Boots but There is No Display

My Inspiron 6000 is more than a year old, and I've recently been having problems with it. The system boots up (I can hear the Windows start up music) but the monitor won't turn on. I notice that the second (middle) display light on the lower right-hand edge of the monitor flickers erratically. I've already tried pressing Fn + F8 to make sure I didn't accidentally switch the display to CRT, but nothing happens.

Please help me figure out what's causing this. Do I need to replace the LCD or is it a minor problem, like some loose wiring or something?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Sounds like a definite no boot issue. Turn the system on to the diagnostics (Fn + Power) see if the diagnostics show a failure. If the hard drive passes diagnostics, then boot to the XP CD and try repairing the WIndows installtion

Get yourself an eide/sta to usb adapter. This will let you take a removed HDD from the old computer, attach it to the adapter hub and plug the usb connection into your new computer. Your new computer will read the old one as an external HDD and you can take all the files you want. Most computer retailers and Ebay have them for around 15-20 bucks.

My Dell Inspiron 6000 (which I think I bought in


Have you tried this:
1. After removing the battery
2. Press and hold the power button for at least 10 sec.
3. Put back the battery
4. Turn it on

if this doesnt work, there could be a problem with your operating system. Try accessing safe mode if you can login .TAP F8 continously on the dell logo screen, and it will open advance boot options. (Just select safe mode) If safe mode boots properly try running system restore to restore it back to the previous date where your computer is still booting to windows. Hope this helps

Dell Inspiron 6000 keystroke ''blip'' setting


Kids :) To solve your problem first you need to find out if there is any key that is broken or loose. What you could do is 1) turn off the laptop and wipe the keyboard hardly with a towel to release one of those broken keys. 2) if this doesnt work, you need to unplug external keyboard, and then goto start-> right My Computer -> Manage -> device manager -> keyboards -> rightclick standard keyboard and disable it.

Now put in your external keyboard and test your keyboard. Dont worry your mouse is still working and you can enable your onboard keyboard again. Try this and let me know if your problem is solved or detected. If your external keyboard works, i guess there is a problem with your onboard keyboard. you would require to service it. cheers.

My IBM ThinkPad T22 boots but there is no display what can i do? and how do i install windows xp on it?


It could be a problem of resolution higher than your monitor support.
Turn it on and press F8 before windows comes up, you'll see a menu of Windows startup; select ENABLE VGA MODE, after windows Boots go to the Display Properties--->Settings and change the resolution for a lower one, then restart.
Good Luck!!!

Your PC is not completing bootup. It's not the display, it's Windows.

Try booting to Safe Mode (F8) and running System Restore to a time before the issue cropped up. That should get the PC running again.

Did you fix the Dell Insipirion 9200 video problem?


This sounds like your video settings could be set improperly, did you attempt to boot up in safe mode and then change your display options? Sometimes you need to monkey with windows to get it to accept new video settings, try removing the video display from the control panel, if this has been done and you can't correct the issue a reload may be in order or at worst case you may have a malfunctioning video card
