Question about Dell Latitude 120L Notebook

1 Answer

My screen was showing lines in it and wouldn't

My screen was showing lines in it, and wouldn't give a clear display without blanking out. I fixed the error but now my computer won't boot properly. It keeps sending me to the "setup" screen and won't get to the login screen. I repeats the setup even when I chose the "start windows normally" prompt. How do I fix this problem?

    I can't figure out how make that option available. Where do I look to find the VGA mode setting?

  • val_moorm450 Jun 17, 2009

    I tried enabling the VGA and it's still doing the same thing. I tried every prompt in the list and still had no luck.

    When it finishes trying to boot I get a blue screen the I can't read because it flashes so quickly but what I could make out was that it was begining a dump of physical memory.

    Is there a way to restore my computer in another screen to the settings from a previous week?

Royal 9500ml screen is blank


It sounds like you have a faulty LCD display unit. get it checked. It is almost certainly nothing to do with memory. It would be best to get your products backed up before the repair is attempted.

My 15" Powerbook G4 screen is half blank - it sometimes shows lines or has some blank spots but it's always gone away. This time it seems stuck. What to do?


Hi There,

If you can get your laptop connected to an external monitor it will do the main troubleshooting for you. With it connected and set to display on the monitor, the 2 options below are pretty solid;

1. If the monitor shows your nomal desktop display without any distortion or lines, etc, then you can be fairly certain your LCD screen panel on the laptop is just wearing out.

2. If the monitor shows exactly what the laptop does, i.e., same exact problems, then it means that the Video chip on the logic board is about to fail and you'll have todecide whether to repair or upgrade to a newer machine.

I wish you the best.

Monitor displays breifly then goes to blank screen


If tried the monitor on two other computers with the same result -- definitly your monitor is faulty. Take it to the repair shop. To make double sure, run your computer with another monitor. If everything is fine now; you can blame the monitor.
