Question about Dell Inspiron 2650 Notebook

1 Answer

Screen problems! Hi I bought a Dell Inspiron 2650 PC Notebook 3 years ago, and now, every time I turn it on the screen is almost black, but I can still see the boot working, very little, can barely find the pointer to log in. Do you know if it's the screen resolution, video card or any other problem? Thanks for your help!

    Thanks for the reply! I'll try that! In the case the LCD is burning out what can be done about it?

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.

The power is on but the screen is black

If you plug an external screen in and reboot, do you get a result? If you do, look closely at your laptop screen with a bright light. If you can see some movement, the screen is OK it is the backlight that has failed.

Got Dell Inspiron 2650 2002 from a friend, free. Want to restore to factory settings. How? Installed Windows XP and Norton Anti Virus

Hi and welcome to fixya!

There are two ways to restore this machine to factory settings;

First is thru the Recovdery partition in the hard disk itself:

  • 1 Close any windows currently open and click the Inspiron's "Start" button. Select "Shut Down" and choose the "Restart" option.
  • 2 Tap "F8" when the Dell image appears on the screen. Continue tapping the key until the advanced boot menu loads.
  • 3 Scroll down to "Repair Your Computer" and press "Enter" to access the DataSafe local backup screen. Click "Next." Select "Dell Factory Image Recovery and DataSafe options."
  • 4 Click the "Restore without preserving new or changed files" radio button and click "Next." Click "Next" three more times and click "Restart" to restore the disk drive to its original condition. Follow the on-screen prompts to set your operating system settings.

If the hdd was already repartitioned or corrupted, the second option should work:

  • 1 Insert the Dell recovery disk in your Inspiron's optical drive and close the "AutoPlay" window when it appears. Shut down any other open programs. Click "Start" and select "Restart."
  • 2 Tap "F2" as soon as the Dell image appears on the laptop's screen. Scroll to the "CD-ROM" option and press "Enter." Tap any key when you see the "Press any key to boot" option.
  • 3 Press "Enter" when the setup screen appears. Press "F8" and highlight the Dell's hard drive partition. Press "Enter."
  • 4 Follow the instructions on the screen to choose the Inspiron's operating system options. Click "Finish" and remove the recovery disk from the optical drive. Click "Start" and select "Restart."
Hope this helps!

My Dell Inspiron 2650 screen goes black after start up. It is still working, its just a black screen. I can close the lid, re-open it, and it will stay on for about 5 seconds. Whats the problem, and how...

This problem is caused by a bad inverter. You can find one on Ebay for a decent price. That's where I get most of mine from $8 to $20. Your inverter is located on the bottom front area of your LCD just under the plastic, and it is very easy to replace.

Fast overheating inspiron 9400

This sounds like the system has glitched. Do a system repair with your recovery or operating system disc. This should clear the glitch, get it back up and running, and cure the overheating problem. Try this and get back to me if there are any issues.
