Question about Dell Latitude C610 Notebook

1 Answer

Laptop screens (2) drive me crazy!!!(and I like it...)

My old laptop (nx9420) screen (matte 17') went almost 1/3rd black a couple of months after 3 vertical lines (blue,green,pink) appeared on the left side... I purchased a new one but they sent me a glossy one by mistake...
"O.K" I thought and replaced the screen but the new one is so dark to see...Almost black... I replaced it again with the old one but there's still 1/3 black plus the vertical lines... Finally, When I close and open the glossy screen while the laptop is on I can hear a hiss (white high frequency noise) coming from the bottom of the lcd screen... Not, sure if that noise with a small duration (1-2sec) comes from the inverter or from the back light...
Is the new screen damaged and the old two? Does the new screen need different voltage (the glossy one)? Is the inverter dead? Is it time to throw my laptop of the window?

THANKS!!!

    Thanks for reply... So, can I interchange the backlight from the matte to the glossy one? Matte screen is LP171WX2 and the glossy one is LP171WP4... Is there any way to find out backlight compatibility? It will be time consuming to send the screen back to the US from Greece and wait it to return... Sure, "a learning experience"... Hope that's the worst damage my laptop could have... Thanks!

    OK... Fixed! I've taken the backlight from the old LCD and replaced it with the one from the new and everything works just fine... A new screen with non-working backlight. Has that happened to anyone else?

The old screen has a screen issue, then replacement appears to have a bad backlight. If possible, RMA the replacement, if bought as is, well, a learning experience. With Portable prices starting in the $400's I'd say it is time to cut your losses and put your money toward a new system.

CCFL 1 bulb or 2 bulb???? I have a HP nx9420 ES440EA laptop with a 17inch matte screen WXGA (1440x900). It was purchased in 2007. The screen is broken but the computer is still working and i need to use...


The screen most likely has a single CCFL lamp on the bottom edge of the LCD screen.
If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LED flashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp. Please click on this link and follow my instructions to identify the fault and possible fix :-

Hello, zx4300 black screen, fan is working, led light works test another hard drive still will not work, very confused please help


I'm beginning to think that the gateway zx4300 all in one has a major defect problem with the motherboard. Mine is 8 months old and the screen went black on me a couple of times then totally went out. I took it back to best buy (still under warranty) they sent it to Kentucky (gateway) 3 weeks later got it back and it's starting to do it again. I'm not happy and am pretty ********** at this point. I use my computer for business and this has been a major inconvenience and money loser. I want to have gateway trade this for a different computer. 8 months old for this to happen is unacceptable.

Screen went black...rebooted, computer seems to


Remove the battery and disconnect the power adapter for about a minute.

connect only the AC then boot it back up. If you can see the Compaq splash screen and still unable to load Windows, re install OS.

If you could not see the splash screen, too bad it could be a motherboard issue,

Hope this helps.

Black screen.


Did anyone try to dry up the liquid inside? I've seen customers machines that had wine spilled in them and last a month before finnaly shorting out the system. If you're lucky a tech may be able to recover the data off the hard drive.

Black screen on 1501 Inspiron laptop


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.
