The video adapter is damaged, the motherboard will most likely need to be replaced because of this as the video is integrated. Get in touch with a computer technician.

I want to factory reset a mini 10 but screen is broke(i am using t.v) im afraid to start the process and then not be able to see anything after


Yes that could be horrid. Try setting the tv as your only screen. If you go to l settings Navigate to the "Start" menu, and click it once to open it. Select "Control Panel." Click "Adjust Screen Resolution" under "Appearance and Personalization." Click the drop-down arrow next to "Multiple Displays" in the window that opens. Select "Show Desktop Only On 2." Windows will disable the Mini 10 display and use the external monitor as the primary screen Read more: How to Run an External Monitor on a Dell Inspiron Mini 9 ' eHow.com http://www.ehow.com/how_6821296_run-dell-inspiron-mini-9.html#ixzz1hFvetaud

INSPIRON 640M WILL NOT GO INTO SAFE MODE , IT GIVES OPTIONS BUT NONE OF THEM WORK , THEN IT GOES TO THE BLANK SCREEN.


Try going to safe mode manually. The steps mentioned below will help you accessing the safe mode

Step 1: Shut down your PC completely.
Step 2: Turn on the Power button.
Step 3: As soon as you turn it on start hitting the F8 key on your keyboard until you get to a black screen called "Windows Advanced option". (If you don't get to that that screen but you end up reaching the blue screen than that means you have delayed in hitting the F8 key. start again from step 1.)
Step 4: As soon as you reach "Windows Advanced option" use your down arrow keys to choose an option called "Safe Mode/Safe mode with networking".
Step 5: Select that and HIT ENTER.

My screen on my dell inspiron 1525 goes dim after a few short minutes and while its in use...do i need to replace the whole screen or just a light or what?


you can try adjusting the screen brightness manually by pressing the blue FN key plus the up/down arrow keys. brighter is FN+UP ARROW. if you have a program called quickset open that and there should be an option under power options/settings. if neither of those solutions fixes the problem then the problem is the screen. a geek squad (1-800-geek-squad) will repair or replace the screen for you. thank you for using fixya!
