Dell inspiron laptop screen issue

Computer boots and I see the screen for a few seconds before it fades out and is gone completely. I can hook up to another monitor and see things fine and I can use the F8 to toggle here, there, both, which seems to work, except of course for the black screen on my laptop. I booted with the computer plugged in and not simply on battery power and got a screen that did not "go black" until I pull the plug to work off battery power. Sounds like a power problem? Or a screen problem? or what ever, how do I fix it?

Re: dell inspiron laptop screen issue


First, are you sure you have the correct power supply?

Also, the lcd inverter could be going bad, consequently needing more power than it can get off the battery.

Hope this helps,

Good luck

Hi lewis haywar,

Try to replace the LCD inverter in your laptop. Most common issues on LCD are due to failing LCD inverter. It fails more often than LCD cable or LCD backlight does.

Please let me know if this solution helped to resolve your issue.

My dell inspiron seems to be stuck in hibernation mode. The screen flashes on for just a few seconds when i turn on the computer then the screen goes black. What can i do?

During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS you can load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults ,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart
During the boot process tap the f8 button three times this will boot into safe mode where the only things
working will be your mouse and keyboard enabling you to attempt to repair your computer
hope this helps

Dell inspiron 1525 shows black screen after dell logo?

The computer cant find a bootable device. Either your boot sector on your Hard drive is gone/damaged (most likely a virus) or the Hard drive failed. Start with booting with your windows disk and try to do a repair installation.

Dell Inspiron8600 display is blank. It begins booting, the screen flashes with the Dell logo then it goes blank. I can see faint images on screen but can't read anything. Can I hook up to an external...

If you get the boot image on your screen then you screen is working correctly unless there's something that you not explaining. You can try an ext. monitor if you think it is something related to your LCD screen not woring during boot up. If the ext monitor not showing your laptop to boot then you have problem with your OS and may need to get it repaired or restored.

My screen on my dell inspiron 1520 has gone black

You've lost your desktop display.
The first thing I would do is to start the computer in safe mode. Once there, do a system restore back to the time that it worked.
I would also, just to be safe, do your disk management tasks like checking your hard drive for errors and running defrag.

Getting a white screen at start up on a Dell Inspiron E1505. If I let it sit it will flicker and come back on after about 15-30 min and will not return to white screen. Is it time to replace the lcd?

Try system recover.
if it happens the second you boot your computer, is the screen dark but the back light is just on, or is it that the screen is completely white?

Inspiron 1200 Dead Screen

At first glance, I'd say "bad video/motherboard" ...however, when you hook up an external monitor, you also need to first switch into "external LCD" mode. On the Dell laptop, hit FN and F8 I believe to switch between LCD and external. It will go through several modes...LCD only, external only, neither, and both. Keep switching until you see something on the external.

If you never see output on the external, you've got a video/motherboard problem. If under warranty, contact Dell and place a support call.

If not under warranty, you're looking at anywhere from $200-$400 for a new motherboard, plus labor for someone to install it.

Hope this helps - remember to rate :)

The problem with my Inspiron is The screen.

Can you hook up an external monitor to it and see it just fine there? If so, then one of two possibilities: Either the LCD inverter is bad, or the screen itself is bad. Oh, it could be just a loose wire from the screen to the motherboard also.

Dell Inspiron B130 wont boot

First remove the battery from the PC! Leave it off for a short period of time! about 2min. This allows the computer to erase anything in temporary memory. Place the battery back onto th PC and try to boot it up. The other thing you can do is boot the pc up with just the power cord in place. See if it boots just from the power cord. Sometime the batteries from dell causes the whole entire PC to become unresponsive.
