Question about Dell Latitude 120L Notebook

1 Answer

The screen on my Lattitude 120L won't come on after I close it

The screen and computer work fine for hours, but if I close the screen to the point where the monitor goes off and then open it again, even one second later...the screen will not turn on, but the computer is still working and running as I can sometimes hit keys and it will make the usual error noises.

If I restart the computer, it comes back on and works fine again for hours until I close the lid and the screen goes off..then the whole thing starts all over again where I can't see the screen and have to restart again.

Any ideas?
Thanks
Rich

Plugged it in to a wall outlet, turned on the computer, the microsoft screen scene appeared, the jingle played, then it turned itself off and won't turn back on.


Unassemble the battery and after 5 minutes reassemble it, then plug it in another wall outlet and when the charging light turn on, turn on the notebook.

My dell latitude 120L keeps freezing. When I then unplug it and leave it for a while it starts up again but freezes shortly after. Possibly overheating? How can I tell if overheating is the problem and...


Overheating problems are hard to diagnose, and in some cases hard to fix. One recommendation I can give is to use a compressed air can to clean out dust from the vents on the outside of the computer. If that does not work I would recommend taking it to a professional PC repair shop.

Admin password doesnt work for my Dell Latitude 120l


Make sure you are saving your changes after altering the password in the BIOS. If altering the password in the BIOS doesn't fix it, then the BIOS is at fault, and your best bet is probably to send it to Dell.
