Question about Dell Inspiron Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Dell Inspiron My laptop's screen has come off the frame while ago. But it was still working with the exposed wires. Now, My dog snatched my laptop from my hands and ripped off my screen, destroying the wires. But, I can still hear it boot it up when I turn it on. Is there anyway I can connect it to an external display like a TV? Or maybe remove the memory somehow? I have a lot of family videos and picture I'd rather not just throw away.

Most laptops have a monitor connector on the left side near the back. It's just a plain plug without the place for the screws to secure it. Looks like a joystick plug but is actually for a monitor.

SOURCE: Dell Inspiron 6000 monitor display problem

Well it is most likely a issue with the Video driver as you are able to boot to the safe mode.I would suggest going back to the safe mode and deleting the present driver for the video from the device manager.before you restart the system just download the latest version from the support.dell.com so that you can reinstall it.Also check in the graphic properties which screen is set to be the defuat.Incase still not working i would suggest reinstalling the operating system before replacing any hardware.

No Screen Attached to Dell Inspiron 1525 Laptop


There are 3 auxilary video connections on that computer. You can use HDMI, S-video and 15 pin video connections. Your best bet is with the 15 pin connection. When you connect to that you may have to use the F5 key to change modes and make it come on.

Dell inspiron


Meaning the graphics chipset is OK.

Problem lies with the Video Cable, or Display Assembly.
(Dell: Display Panel Cable = Video cable)

The Display Assembly is the;
1) Display Bezel: Plastic thin frame in front of the LCD screen.

2) LCD screen (Dell = Display Panel)

3) Screen Frame: The thin metal frame which surrounds the LCD screen layers, and also holds them in place. (Resembles a picture frame, and can be disassembled)

4) Camera (If applicable)

5) Screen Inverter: (Dell = Display Inverter)

The Display Panel Cable (Video Cable) is a thin flat ribbon cable.
One end connects to the motherboard, the cable then goes up by the left Hinge, and the opposite end connects to the back of the LCD screen, in the Display Assembly.

1) A connection may be loose. One end of the video cable may be loose, to it's connector.
BOTH the connection on the motherboard, AND the connection at the back of the LCD screen, need to be checked.

This means partial disassembly of the laptop body, to check the motherboard connection. It is under the Keyboard.
ALL power removed from laptop, AC adapter (Charger), and Battery, the Center Control Cover needs to be removed next, then the Keyboard,

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/ins1545/en/SM/keyboard.htm#wp1179911

Also look at the condition of the sheath, of the video cable. If there looks to be apparent damage to the sheath, the tiny thin wires inside may also be damaged. (Stretched/Broken)

Checking the connection of the video cable at the LCD screen, requires opening the Display Assembly.
This requires removing the Display Assembly first,

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/ins1545/en/SM/display.htm#wp1109848

Both connections check out? Prove to be tight? (If you open the Display Assembly, and the video cable falls off, it wasn't tight)

I would then suggest performing a continuity check of the video cable.
Check each wire in the video cable. (Multimeter set to Ohm's, see if electricity passes through the wires. Continuity)

If the video cable proves to be good, then the screen Inverter is next.

An LCD screen cannot produce light by itself. (Or enough light)
It needs an additional light source.
A Backlight is the additional light source.

A Backlight can be a CCFL, or a series of LED lights.
The Dell Inspiron 1545 Notebook PC uses a CCFL as a Backlight.

A CCFL is a Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp.
Similar to Fluorescent lighting used in homes, and businesses, but on a MUCH smaller scale.
{ Example: 2mm Wide and 334mm Long. That is approximately a little thicker than 1/16th of a inch, (.078), and a little longer than 13 inches }

A screen Inverter converts the power (Electricity) from the laptop, for the Backlight, and LCD screen.

90 PERCENT OF THE TIME the fault is the Inverter.

Fortunately it is also the cheaper of the parts, when compared to an LCD screen, and is easier to access.

It is behind the Display Bezel, and mounted at the bottom of the LCD screen frame.

[ In the Display Assembly link above scroll down to the subheading -
Display Bezel.
In the first photo under the subheading, the screen Inverter is shown at the bottom, of the LCD screen.

This example shows it in more detail,

http://www.batterysupport.com/dell-inspiron-1545-inverter-p-206027.html

To test a screen Inverter you need a sensitive multimeter. This = $$$$
(Or you can use a good Inverter to test)
Barring that the two examples above are not feasible, the alternative is to buy, and replace the screen Inverter.

A) Video Cable checks out it's on to the screen Inverter.
B) Replace screen Inverter does not fix the problem, the problem is a bad LCD screen.

I'm betting on a loose connection of the video cable, at the back of the LCD screen. Just my thoughts.

Post back in a Comment, (Or Comments), as to your findings.

Right hand hinge is broke dell inspiron 1318


The only people who have the hinge is Dell themselves. I've checked all over. The only parts available are the Center Console Cover & The Back Cover. If the hinge itself is broken, then you will have to send it to DELL. They'll tell you that the whole screen needs to be fixed- just to hike up the price of repair. If you want, you can buy the back cover, which for the most part, will cover the exposed wires on the hinge, but the front of the hinge will still be exposed. What I would love to find is a metal hinge for the DELL Inspiron 1318, like that found in the Dell Studio XPS version. The plastic hinges only guarantee that we will remain loyal customers. Sorry if this didn't help much.

My dell inspiron 1525 microphone does not record.


I have a Dell Inspiron 1525. I used Skype ages ago and returned to it a couple of days ago. No one could hear me. I researched for 20 hours, downloading drivers, checking EVERY setting possible and NOW have got the ANSWER. The wires in the Microphone Array are fatigued. My microphone works perfectly when I tilt my lcd screen half way down. Go to Webcam Manager, Tools, Audio controls, the microphone has 2 bars which go green when you talk into it. Tilt your screen and watch the bars go up and down. Not the answer you probably wanted but as long as you skype with your screen half tilted everything is good to go

Screen problems!


If you feel safe pulling the top plate just above keyboard and removing the keyboard (marker K) on bottom of computer, thie will expose the video cable unplug and reseat it. sometime will fix the problem but the most likely answer will be your LCD is burning out. 5 out of 6 will be LCD but you could be the 1 that just need a reseat.
