Question about Dell Computers & Internet
When I close the laptop (Dell Inspiron 1000) with a screen displayed on it then open it back up, the screen goes blank and the hard drive light stays on as being in a frozen state. The only way to get it operating again is to hold the power button down and turn off the computer then turn it back on again. It does this with either battery or AC power. I can't seem to find the problem. after I changed the resolution i restarted the computer and ever since then my icons are frozen, i can click the start menue but after that it freezes I tried getting into properties but i get the hourglass icon, let that run for an hour.. nothing! I dont know what to do! HELP
I have a similar issue where if I move the screen angle my pc will freeze with a black screen (basically shuts off). My only recourse is to do a hard boot. My problem was much worse and I ended up having to loosen the screws to the hinges completely. So I think there definately is some sort of connection between the hinges and the screen problem.

One thing that I've noticed about the Inspiron 1000, is the LCD ground is done exclusively thru the hinges. Try tightening the LCD hinge screws (Marked with a (D)) 2 on the bottom of the chassis and possibly 2 on the back. (I just tightned every screw I could find)
Once the ground connection is improved, the LCD may work better
