Question about Dell Computers & Internet

Screen keeps blanking out on my Dell Inspiron 1501 :(

After only a minute of two's use my screen keeps dying. The only way I seem to be able to get it back is to ctrl alt delete or close and reopen the the laptop. I haven't changed any of the setting and it's only just started happening today.

I'm trying to type this quickly before it does it again. It's already done it twice since I started typing this :(

Could be faulty inverter board or faulty LCD backlight.

To determine which one is faulty, you have to replace inverter board or LCD screen, but i think that you don't have another inverter board or screen to test, so i'm recommending you to buy new screen with inverter attached to it.

Pick any screen from here

And here is how to replace it.

Blank screen


If, when it does start and you see normal screens your version of Windows is probably corrupt or you have some type of virus. I would recommend wiping your hard drive and reinstall Windows.

My dell inspiron 1501 laptop has been flickeri ng colors or a lrge strip down middle , now half the screen is black with little color line


hello
This could be anything from the screen is dying or the inverter (electronic board that powers the screen' back light).

If you press slightly at the top of the screen, see if the lines will disappear or not, if it does then come back again; you might need to change your lcd.
hope it helped

My daughter's Dell Inspiron 1501 laptop screen has gone almost blank. When I open the laptop I momentarily get to see the screen as it should be. I have tried the 'fn' & 'up arrow' keys without success....


this sounds like a loose conection to the lcd inverter or the lcd cable to the motherboard. it can be repaired. how are you at taking things apart?

Dell 1501 inspiron laptop blank screen


Hi,

Have you installed any application/program prior to the blue screen? Most blue screen causes your system not to boot to your operating system anymore. It is possible that your hard drive is crashed due to a virus infections or spywares. Incompatibility and corrupted system registry may affect your system to have blue screen as well.

You may try the following steps below.

1. Restart your computer. After you pressed the power button to restart. Keep on tapping F8 key on the keyboard on and off.

2. Boot advanced option will show up on the screen. You may boot your computer to the following option.

a. Last known good configuration
b. Safe mode with Networking.

If Safe mode w/networking works, restore your computer to an earlier using the system restore features.

Keep me posted.

Regards,

jeff
