Just because you plugged in an external monitor and didn't see anything doesn't really mean anything. Sometimes you won't see anything even if that laptop is working. Some have to be set in windows some you may have to use the one key on the keyboard. I know you said you replaced the ram but if there's 2 slots take 1 out and try it like that. If that don't work put the ram in the other slot and try it. Also use a flash light and point it at the LCD and different angles to see of you see any display. Laptops don't have video cards but the do have onboard graphics chips.

Plug an external display in. Laptops don't have video cards, it is all on the mother board.

Dell latitude D630 wont recognize projector


Connecting an External Monitor or Data Projector
You can switch to an external monitor or data projector by two methods. 1. Connect the external monitor to the laptop's video port, power up the external monitor first and the laptop. The video information will automatically switch to the external monitor. 2. If you power up the laptop first then you can switch the video output to the external monitor by pressing the Fn key and one of the Function keys, depending upon your make and model laptop. You can also toggle between the external monitor or both LCD screen plus the external monitor or back to LCD screen only by pressing the Fn key plus one of the function key. Here is a list of key combinations for some of the laptops :- IBM ThinkPad = Fn + F7 HP and Compaq = Fn + F4 Toshiba = Fn + F5 Dell = Fn + F8

I have dell d630 it turn on but not display anything what is the problem


If the unit powers up and it seems to work except for the screen, hook a external monitor to the video output usually on the back, if picture is present! the laptop has issues. But if both screens show the same symptom the problem is in the video graphics card.

My Dell Latitude D630 has a blank screen.


Check your hardware light on the exterior of your computer and see if it is lit and blinking. If it is, you have an operating system, but just can't see it. That tells me it may be several things:

1. The LCD cutoff switch is in the off position
2. Toggle (Fn) the display to the internal settings of the LCD panel. It may be set to display an external monitor only
3. Plug in an external monitor. If it doesn't display on the external, after pressing the Fn key you have a failed video adapter. If it does display on the external it is most likely a back light or inverter failure.

If you don't get a display on the external monitor, then most likely your video circuit is the problem. If your laptop has a plug-in video card it can be replaced. However if it's integrated into the motherboard then you'll have to have that replaced.

My Dell Latitude D630 will power on but the screen is black....nothing will show not even the startup page for windows. What do you think the problem may be


I would suspect either the video card or your LCD screen.. A good test is to hook up an external monitor and see if that works. Be aware that when you start it up, you will have to hit the function key and special function key combo to switch it to the external display.
On the latitude, that is the Fn key plus the F8 key.

Screen does not work on my latitude c840


If your LCD screen on the laptop does not display a picture and if you hook up an external monitor and it doesn't display anything either, then your video card is bad.
But--before you go trash the thing, when you hooked up the external monitor, did you push the Fn key and the corresponding special function key at the top of the keyboard that switches the output to the external screen? (It does not just display to the external screen without you telling it to.
What your uncle describes is a problem with the laptop LCD monitor, not the video card.
