    benwabnick: Thanks. That was the issue. I spent some time on the phone with a Dell Tech Service guy and he walked me through the process to re-seat the cable and things began to work.

    Have you tried reseating the cables to the lcd and where it plugs into the motherboard? It may be slightly loose.

    Same problem here. Where do I find the cable that plugs ito the motherboard? I'm not that savvy of a user.

    I have the same issue, Black screen. I check the cables (screen cables), order others, the same. Is the motherboard? The screen? (is LED screen). I'm lost!

My dell 1735 turns on but does not go past the log in. Jumps back to the start up screen.


Hello here is the homepage:

http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/04/Product/studio-1735

If the F2 and F12 keys don't work, there's something wrong with the hardware. It could be as simple as a faulty keyboard or bad keyboard connection but my guess with the other problems occurring there is something more. You will need to contact Dell for in depth hardware
diagnostic

This could also be the harddrive failing.

Try visit a computer repair shop or a DELL autorized dealer/repair for detailed fault finding.

Good luck

How to connect an external monitor when your screen stay whiteMy screen stop working and i don`t see to configure external display!


Connecting an External Monitor or Data Projector
You can switch to an external monitor or data projector by two methods. 1. Connect the external monitor to the laptop's video port, power up the external monitor first and the laptop. The video information will automatically switch to the external monitor. 2. If you power up the laptop first then you can switch the video output to the external monitor by pressing the Fn key and one of the Function keys, depending upon your make and model laptop. You can also toggle between the external monitor or both LCD screen plus the external monitor or back to LCD screen only by pressing the Fn key plus one of the function key. Here is a list of key combinations for some of the laptops :- IBM ThinkPad = Fn + F7 HP and Compaq = Fn + F4 Toshiba = Fn + F5 Dell = Fn + F8

The video card most likely has failed. The computer will need to be serviced by a trained technician. The entire motherboard will need to be replaced.

Screen goes into standby mode after a few seconds. Screen will not stay on. Started after the computer was on and coming out of standby mode. Computer works fine on external monitor.


Depending on the options you purchased the laptop with, it either has an integrated video circuit into the motherboard or a plug-in video card to the motherboard. If the laptop works fine with external monitor, your motherboard or video card is defective. Your LCD display is probably O.K.

Bottom Half of Laptop Screen quickly fades to white!


1. you can replace it with a new screen. (expensive) 2. have a technician to repair the board of the screen, the cable, the IC's, etc. (save you money but the length of repair is very long. maybe it will take a week or two.)
your choice.
