SOURCE: Dell D600 LCD issue

What I've found on two laptops I've worked on in the past two years is that in a case like this, there is a little pin near the power button (or on the strip up near the display) that tells the laptop when the monitor is closed.  If that pin gets stuck, the computer will think it's shut all of the time.  The sensor is only active in normal mode of windows with the drivers installed (if it's in safe mode or VGA mode  the sensor does not work until you raise the resolution.  the sensor doesn't work at all if you boot from a knoppix cd.)

You may be able to just flick the pin and get it unstuck, but in some cases you have to remove it all togther.

To remove it, turn the lapotp off. lean the monitor back as far as it can go (don't force it). You then need to carefuly pry up the strip that the power button is on (ussually there is a space you can pry open on the left or right side of the strip depending on the model laptop; be very careful not to break anything).  You can then pop it out with a small knife or tweesers and clip the strip back down.

If you don't feel comfortable doing this, then find someone who is.

I hope this helps someone.

SOURCE: Dell Latitude D800 Boot Problem

Did the diagnostics pass the RAM and the hard drive.
You should check the BIOS settings to see if the hard disk is detected, if possible reset the BIOS back to the default settings and see if the computer boots up.
If not :-
Then it appears that the operating system is either corrupted or system files were deleted or infected with viruses.
Your only option is to do a operating system repair or a complete new install of Windows.
I recommend you do a new install.

Turns on but black screen


Restart your computer and then press and hold F8 keys until you get Advanced Options menu screen.Use the arrow key to highlight Safe Mode, and then press Enter, your computer will boot automatically to safe mode.

If you able to start in the safe mode then Scan your computer for viruses. Some viruses can cause a black Screen , especially ones that infect the master boot record (MBR) or boot sector.

Update drivers for your hardware. black Screens are hardware or driver related so updated drivers could fix the cause of the STOP error.

Return BIOS settings to their default levels. An overclocked or misconfigured BIOS can cause all sorts of random issues, including black screen.

If it didn't helps you then simply get the system utility program like PC Fresher that will fix windows errors that cause of black screen screen

It wont boot, goes to black screen with whit blinking dash


Yes, this sounds like the traditional black screen issue, but it's different! This machine is a Dell Dimension 3000 with XP. System won't boot. After Blue Dell BIOS splash screen with F2 & F12 options, it just goes black. There will ultimately be a white cursor in the upper left hand corner. I can edit BIOS with F2, I can get in to the boot menu with F12, but I can't do anything after that. I can even get in to the Safe Mode menu (F8), but it never boots.

As per the problem description the Laptop Display is Fade out even in BIOS window. If that's the case then the unit must be serviced as the issue is Hard ware related. The Computer uses minimum Softwares in BIOS Mode, Hence most of the Diagnostics related to Displays and Input adn Output devices are done in BIOS. I suggest you get the unit serviced.

Can turn computer off and on and I will see the windows screen then the screen goes blue with a blinking cursor. I also have a dell.


It is related to bios enabled computrace models. It has happened twice to my dell 1525 I bought it 12/08. The software used to image your recovery partition is incompatible with the two tiny hidden partitions computrace uses. Computrace gets corrupted and shuts you down like you stole the laptop through no fault of your own. All of you data is still there so don't worry. smile.gif

According to dell, you have to remove the hard drive, download your correct bios from their site using another computer of course, and while the hardrive is still removed, flash the new bios and then reinstall the hardrive and it should work fine with all your data intact.

I found this tech update at dell's website this problem goes back to 2005 but the most recent update was dec. 2008 and includes many laptops including the 1500 series.

Computrace freaked out and completely disabled your system. You can send it back or follow the instructions in the update if you are out of warranty.

I am a graphic designer so I needed to finish a project, so I did this to get it running again, backed up my data, and sent my laptop back for a replacement.

I have included part of the update and the Dell web link for you below.

Certain Dell™ Portable Systems Display a Black Screen with a Flashing Cursor when Booting from the Hard Drive

This issue only occurs on Dell portable systems that shipped after Oct. 31, 2005, and have the following configuration:
  • The CompuTrace BIOS feature is supported and has been set to Activate.
  • A system account has been created, and the laptop is registered with Absolute Software.
  • The Altiris Backup and Restore application for local client has been installed.
Affected systems manifest the following symptoms:
  • When the system is powered on, it does not complete the boot process, and the only indication that a problem has occurred is a black screen with a flashing cursor in the upper left corner of the display.
  • The system cannot boot from any media as long as the hard drive is attached. The only way to boot to other media is to remove the hard drive from the system.
Altiris Backup and Recovery software uses an atypical mechanism to hide a partition within the system volume. This mechanism involves hiding valid data relating to the Altiris Backup and Recovery software in marked blocks that the operating system is designed to ignore. The installation process for Altiris also leaves table entries that store directory information for NTFS. These entries are formatted differently than those normally observed on an NTFS-formatted partition. These changes were not anticipated, and we are not aware of any other product that uses the file system in such a manner.

Black screen


Some USB devices seem to cause this problem. I've had it myself. USB devices when hooked up cause the computer to freeze as it hard for USB drivers to be loaded outside of windows. Try updating you windows thru windows update though even updated I still run into the problem sometimes. If updating dosen't work you need to keep the drive unhooked while booting then hook up in windows.
