Question about Dell Inspiron 5150 Notebook

1 Answer

Black screen display after switching on

I loaded a "Call of Duty PC Gamer" CD to my laptop. It was installed and after playing it for few minutes, a screen display advised me to restart. I followed instruction but it will not turn off. I disconnect the power cord and re start it again. The power went on but there is no display in the screen (all black display). I switch off power then turn it on for several times but it does not restore the normal function. Please help me solve my problem. Thanks.

Try connecting the laptop to an external monitor and see if all is working Ok with that, if it is, then you may need to get the laptop display serviced - if it does the same on the external display, then try booting the laptop from a CD or DVD such as an OS install CD (Windows or Linux) or a boot utility CD such as Hiren's Boot CD - this will allow you to test whether the problem lays with your installed operating system or with the hardware. . . .
Note: do not go any further than the initial displays if using an OS install CD unless you are using a Linux Live boot CD which will not destroy your installed operating system. . . .See http://www.hirensbootcd.org/ to download a copy of Hiren's Boot CD to burn to a CD. . . .See http://www.ubuntu.com/download/ubuntu/download to download a copy of a Ubuntu (Linux) Live CD.

If you have access to an external display, plug the VGA output from your laptop into it to ensure the laptop is OK.
If the laptop is OK and it is the laptops screen that is faulty, check ebay for a replacement screen.
Having an LCD display with a VGA input is a sure way to find out where your fault lies.
If the VGA screen does not work, then maybe the laptops display driver is corrupt. Go onto the Gateway web site and down load a fresh driver with a working laptop and copy the driver onto a USB Memory stick, set your laptop to boot from USB and load the driver into your system.
If that doesn't work, take it to a repair shop for an estimate of just look on ebay for another one and copy your files to the new one.

You need to replace both the parts here... The backlight is the main problem... But its advisable if you can replace the LCD inverter as well.. Replace them.. Since the display is working on the external monitor the problem will be fixed...

My Sony Vaio PCG-FR285M just shows a black screen at bootime


If your BIOS loads properly you have some display in your screen like text. But when you turn on and nothing readable on the display then you have problem in the BIOS. Try to flush updated bios in sony website. Recovery disk is only applicable if the system will display "Cannot find boot disk" or bios is properly loaded before you can boot from CD. If you wish you can boot it with Norton Ghost 12 Recovery Disk.

Quarter screen display for cd games


I don't suppose the game being on CD has anything to do with it. You don't mention if you are using XP, Vista or what, so advice is general

Several things you should check :

1. on control panel, look at display settings - especially check you don't have multi-display settings (i.e. set to display screen over multiple screens) switched on.

2. click on icon for your graphics card in taskbar if you have one. Check the settings for your graphics card (probably ATI or Nvidia, but could be under name for brand such as Sapphire or XFX)) - also look for multi-display settings here.
