Have you updated the video driver?

If yes but problem persist I suspected it's your LCD screen is faulty and needs to be replace.

If your machine is under warrantly no need to pay any fee for the replacement of the part.

My video on dell inspiron 1501 flashes on and off on the screen, Hooked up external monitor and it works fine. What do I need to look at


Try reseating the video cable and ensure the cable is chafed where is passes thru the hinge assembly. If no change, then the LCD will likely need replacement

I have a dell inspiron 1501.its lcd display not working


Hi there!

You can try a few things to check if there is something
wrong with the hardware of the computer.

First, try to update the video driver and also the BIOS
which you can get from the support website of DELL.

If the same problem persist try to run the LCD test .
While the computer is off press d+power the test should run and if it is an LCD problem, the display will either be blank or distorted.

Or if you will be able to re seat the cable connector
of the LCD that can be a good thing to try.

Hope this helps!

Pink flashing band down the middle of the screen


Hi:
You most likely have a bad LCD panel on your laptop, and to verify that is the problem, connect up a desktop monitor to the external VGA connector, and toggle to the external display. If it has a good display on the external monitor, you have a bad LCD panel. If the color band is still showing up on another monitor, you have big problems!

Dell Inspiron 1501 Laptop-6'' Red Vertical Line


The color red and especially red colored lines or a pinkish hue are indicative of an impending screen failure. The only other possibility is that the data cable on the left backside of the lcd panel may be loose at the socket or on the motherboard. 9 times out of 10 though, it is the lcd panel that it failing.

I've got a Dell Inspiron 1525. When I power on the unit, the LCD shows the Dell startup screen, then a whinning noise and the screen goes black. Sometime shortly there after the Windows screen appears but...


This sounds more like a hardware issue. Now you say that the external display output is working fine. It could possibly be a problem with the lcd display itself shorting out. If there was a problem with the video hardware then I do not think you would be able to get the external display working either. The whinning noise could be coming from the lcd inverter.

My dell inspiron 1501 laptop has been flickeri ng colors or a lrge strip down middle , now half the screen is black with little color line


hello
This could be anything from the screen is dying or the inverter (electronic board that powers the screen' back light).

If you press slightly at the top of the screen, see if the lines will disappear or not, if it does then come back again; you might need to change your lcd.
hope it helped

Replaced LCD Inverter, now screen comes on and bright but choppy


Does the external monitor display a normal image?
If the images is OK then the video card is OK.
The inverter supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp which provides the backlighing and does not jumble the colors on the screen. If you get a pinkish hue or a flashing screen then this would indicate
the CCFL lamp is faulty.
From the description of the fault, it indicates that the fault could be a faulty video cable or video connector. Try reseating the video cable/connector on the motherboard.

Dell Laptop E1705 Screen goes Blank


If your video output works fine when connected to an external monitor, then the issue is with the LCD display panel. I’m afraid the only way to fix this is have the LCD panel replaced. The ribbon cable that plugs the LCD panel into the motherboard could also be the culprit. Here's a link to the display assembly for 1501: http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/ins1501/en/sm_en/display.htm#wp1022270
