If you hear the hard drive spinning and you think Windows is working but you can't see an image then :-
You could have a defective screen - a defective inverter or a CCFL lamp or simply the video cable needs reseating. After reseating the video cable and the problem is still there then :-
To determine if you have a LCD screen or video card problem, read this and follow the instructions.

Defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom:

  • Screen flashs on red/pink and off.
  • Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal.
  • Picture flickering with dim display or appear black.
  • Picture flickering on and off.
All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp

Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power it up, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight.

Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

Inspiron turns on but not monitor


That is good, it proves the problem is in the laptop display, the most likely issue is the inverter board, "located just below the LCD screen" the other less likely is the backlight just behind the LCD display.

My dell inspiron 2200 starts up and befor reaching the windows page shuts down with just a clicking sound coming from the speaker. the screen is totally blank (black) although the indicator light stays on....


Get your System Install Disc and place it in the DVD drive. Try and get it to boot from the CD. If it boots from the CD then you have a system error and when the menu requesting if you want to repair or replace your system version, select repair. That should get you out of trouble without losing data.

I was trying to hook up my laptop (Dell Inspiron 2200)(windows xp) to my television. I managed to get the laptop to go to the tv screen, but when computer rebooted, I got a black screen and cannot get rid...


use the F8 button before windows starts. as the laptop show the manufacturer's screen. keep tapping it gently and fast until you get froted with the bootup options screen. Select whichever option reads the word "VGA" in it. Then it will boot into windows. Enter the multiple screen setup (could be hard given that screen could show all icons and windows big) and select proper settings. Restart the PC and ensure the options remain active.

Monitor comes on very dim, I can't see


click your "fn" key and then press the brightness key on the keyboard (it will be a blue or green "sun")
If this does not work, plug an external monitor to the laptop, if the screen is good on the monitor, your LCD display panel is shot.

Screen wont light up



Try connecting an external monitor to the Dell Inspiron 2200. If the monitor display is fine, then your laptop’s LCD display panel is defective. If the monitor display is dark, problem is with either the video card or motherboard located inside your laptop.
Here’s a link to disassemble the LCD unit: http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/ins2200/en/SM/display.htm#1084976

Dell Inspiron 2200 monitor issue


Could be that the monitor is going out, but it sounds more like a connector has worked loose or corroded and isn't making a good contact. Check and clean the screen connection, screen to inverter, and screen to motherboard.
