How can i tell if my keyboard is backlit in inspiron 15r?


If you press any key on the keyboard, the back light should come on automatically. If not, hold down (Fn) function key and press "right arrow" with a blue florescent symbol until the back light is lit. Pressing the "right arrow" key while holding down the (Fn) key lits the back light and can also reduce, increase the light.
Hope this helps

My Vostro 1000 dell Laptop monitor keeps on having a blackscreen, It is on but I cannot see it on my screen


First connect to an external monitor, is there a picture?

If yes, Us the Fn keys to switch to the on board display. Have you got your display back.?

If no to both, your graphics chip/card has probably failed. If no to just the laptop display, then possibly the inverter has failed or the connection has been broken.

FIrst, Its easier to check the connections to *********** board, unclip the plate between the keyboard and screen, carefully. Then remove the keyboard retaining screws. Make sure all ribbon connections are good. If already good, then its down to checking at the screen end of the cables.

I have dell vostro 1000 labtop an the screen is just black wen i turn it on there is no light but i can here the sound so i no it is on i just can see anything can anyone help. pleasurezone74@yahoo.com


It sounds like the laptop is set to use an external monitor.
Check the function keys for an icon that looks somewhat like a monitor
turn the unit on and wait until it is started
then press and hold the function (fn) key
While holding the fn key press the function key with the icon (it is a stepping control)
this should, after one or two presses bring up your on-board screen.

Good luck, I hope this helps

Hi my dell vostro key board has locked ,right hand side of keyboard blue light with a lock and 9 inside it .tried everything can you help


The 9 lock key means that your Number lock key is on. The blue light usually means that your blue tooth is on. Try connecting an external USB keyboard to see if it functions normally. If so then you need to have your keyboard replaced.

I have Dell latitude d630, It is switching on but no display, when I switch on my laptop, its num lock light is on. capslock light works when i use caps button. Power light is on but hard drive light...


Attach an external monitor. Does the external come on? May have to use the FN key + F8 to toggle it between the LCD and the attached monitor.

When you say that the laptop LCD glows a little bit, this makes me think the back light of the LCD has gone bad. If it displays fine on the external, then it is a pretty good chance the LCD back light has failed. If you can attach an external monitor and see something on it, run the built hardware test. This is done from a powered down state. Then press the FN key + Power, this places it into the diagnostic. Follow the on screen instructions. If it comes back with an error code, write this down and compare it to this list at Dell website. http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/dsn/document?c=us&l=en&s=gen&docid=14B3819735D6B40EE0401E0A55177ED2

Occasionally, reseating the LCD video cable to the mother board will have a positive effect. Here is a link to the online service manual that explains how to reset it. In the diagram it is labeled #5 It is located under the keyboard.

Try these steps :

  • turn off the laptop and unplug all the peripherals.
  • take out the battery
  • press and hold the power button for 30 seconds without the battery and the adaptor.
  • after that put the battery back and press and hold the Fn key and then press the power button to turn on the computer it will take you to dell diagnostics.
  • If you see colour bars on the screen press y for yes from the key board it will then do a small diagnostics and restart your computer.
  • If in this process u still see the lines on the screen that indicates the lcd screen failure and will need a replacement.
