Question about Dell Latitude D600 Notebook

1 Answer

My Dell Inspiron Laptop is having some issues with its screen. Whenever I start up the computer, it narrows itself with these black lines on either side. It kind of looks like a widescreen DVD screen, except the lines are vertical. I don't know how else to describe it, but I took a picture. The lines are about 2 inches thick and make my screen really narrow. Help me...how do I get my regular computer screen back? Here is the picture: http://tinypic.com/r/2yujbl5/5 Thanks!

You might want to try altering the resolution of the display in control panel.
Some DVD's and games you used may have reset the resolution to a new setting in order to run. try 1024x768 or higher and if none of those do it try 800x600 not that many monitors use that res these days they are all much higher, but see which one comes close to the real res. there is also a facilty to "stretch" 9 without distortion.

There are 24 black lines (one inch to 3 inches in length). coming up from the bottom of my Dell Inspiron 1545 laptop computer. After awhile the lines start getting squiggly, turn purple and spread out...


Try to connect an external monitor to the laptop if the lines are there then it's the video chip on the motherboard. But if you don't see ant lines on the external then it's the LCD on the laptop and it can be replaced. If you can't perform the work yourself take it to a local repair shop.

I wen t to Dell website and did search for 1501 Inspiron laptop. After I found the product, I entered "black screen" and did another search. The search brought up 3 problems. One of them had several of the problems I had encountered, including black screen, horizontal lines, blue screen at times.
The solution was to download and update my Video driver. This seems to have solved my issues.

Screen comes on and after about 5 min. it goes off the computer is still on.


To narrow down the problem area, connect the laptop to an external monitor, if everything works properly, then you have a bad screen. If it does the same, then you have a failing motherboard component that is causing the shutdown.
