Question about Dell Latitude C400 Notebook
My Dell C400 has a new HD, two new sticks of ram, a new LCD, new CMOS battery with a refurbished motherboard and palmrest. It will not boot using the LCD screen when it is cold. It always will boot with an external monitor. I've found no settings in the BIOS that repairs this problem. After the laptop has booted using an external montor and warmed up, sometimes it will boot using only the LCD screen. Any clues what might be happening?
I have seen this problem before, after booting to the external monitor go into the display settings and try setting the resolution to 1024 X 768 and the color settng to 16 bit or preferably 32 bit. If you can do this, then shut down the laptop remove the external monitor and try booting on the LCD display. BPCS
