Dell Inspiron 6000 screen goes black / hibernates / turns off

Laptop has started to turn its screen off, or hibernate or turn itself off at random times and for no apparent reason. Any ideas?

    I don't think it's anything that simple I'm afraid. The power settings are all OK and a lot of the time the computer itslef doesn't turn off - just the screen goes black. Also when it comes back on (sometimes on its own sometimes by pressing the standby button) it comes back to wherever I was before. Although sometimes it does actually shut down. Seems completely random.

    No. Either just comes straight back to whatever screen was on before, or re-starts from the beginning. Sometimes when the screen has gone back all the LEDs go off except the stand-by one which pulses green very slowly

Dell Inspiron going to hibernate when its not set on hibernate


The hibernate mode is one of microsoft's worst idea because it often corruped window files forcing the user to reload windows from scratch. When you were in power options did you also turn off standby? and set it to never on the list.

Dell Inspiron 6000 to TV


On a dell laptop, the key combo FN  F8 cycles through the display options. Laptop screen, External screen, Laptop and External screen at the same time.  Try pressing the FN F8 key to get the video to display on both laptop and lcd and the same time.  If that doesn't work you can also change the settings on what the laptop does when the lid is closed.  Check the power settings in the control panel.

Screen went black


When you close the lid, there is a small pin that engages the case and flips a switch to tell the laptop the case has been closed. The monitor will ALWAYS turn off then, because otherwise, the heat build up would burn the screen! Do not try to defeat this, replacing an LCD screen is usually more expensive than the value of the laptop!

Now, that all being said (and please remember), the situation you have now is (hopefully) just that the laptop tried/succeeded in going into ACPI "suspend" or "hibernate" mode.

1. Remove all cables and 10/100. Remove all USB devices. Just leave the PSU (AC power supply) connected.

2. Press the power button firmly, JUST once. Wait. And I mean WAIT, because some laptops can take 2 minutes or more to come out of suspend/hibernate, if they were very busy at the time it was shut down.

3. If the LCD screen lights up. you are done. But if it does not light up now, then proceed to step 4.

4. Press and HOLD the power button down for 10 seconds. This forces the laptop to shut down completely, even from suspend/hibernation. Some unsaved files may be lost, but tghe laptop goes cold, so you can start ACPI over again.

5. After a few minutes, press the power button again, firmly, just ONCE and for 1 second max. Laptop should start up OK.

6. Once it starts up, go to START MENU/SETTINGS/CONTROL PANEL/POWER SETTINGS and search for the "hibernation" tab. Turn hibernation OFF. your laptop obviously has some problems or lack of responsiveness with hibernation (most do). Use suspend, instead. It is much safer,. faster, and still does a good job of saving HDD and LCD wear. Please let me know how this goes for you, there are other more detailed problems that may be involved here, but I suspect this is most likely.
