Dell Inspiron E1705 will not power on

Video card was going out with geen dots and lines on screen.. Clean computer parts and cleaned all fans, CPU & GPU, and added new thermal paste.. Now computer will not power on... Rechecked all connections and cables... Reseated RAM chips.

When power button pressed green power light comes on for 3 seconds nothing else... Do you think it might have been a faulty mainboard?

Thanks in advance...

Dell Studio xps 8100: Motherboard changed, when booting up I get to the f2/f12 screen with have a progress bar and computer turns off?


So picture guy, LOL

Most all boards have two power plugs from PSU, (power supply unit)
a 20 or 24pin and a 4 or 8pin.

The rest from PSU are for hardware, except if you have any video cards in pci-e slots, but they are not truly part of the motherboard they are addon.

Then from the case you have power button, reset, pled,hdled.

Sata ports on mobo, cpu fan, addon fans, DVD rom.

Front panel audio.

So now you have taken one memory stick and entered the BIOS, then tried each one.

You need to check each stick.


Now you put in your hdd erase disk, boot from it and you're going to erase your hdd so it's all clean for a fresh install.

Now you throw in the windows disk and you boot from it to install windows.

Right !!!

Display issues, definate hardware problem


Hi there!

Yes you might be right, it can be the video card.

You can try to run some test first to make sure.

First, if you have an external monitor plug it in the computer then check if the horizontal lines
are still there, if it is then you'll definitely need to replace the video card, but if not then you might wanna check the LCD.

If you don't have an external monitor try to check this things first.

1. Check LCD if it is the one causing the problem.
Run the LCD test by pressing D + POWER while the computer is off,. if it is not working try to run
the diagnostics in the computer the it will flash colored
bars then say no to it it will test the LCD,
If you don't see the horizontal lines on the LCD test
then its a video card problem and if you see it its a LCD problem.

Just want to give you a heads up, you may be including the motherboard for the replacement
because your video card is integrated to it and replacing the fan heatsink can help resolve the problem.

Dell Inspiron E1705: Getting lines/blocks of color on monitor


From a power off state, press the Fn key and the power button, this will run the BIST which is a diagnostic on the LCD, if you get screens of solid colors.
From what you describe, I'd suspect the video card which could be the motherboard or memory, try the memory modules one at a time, see if the issue only occurs with one module

Fried Video Card


if you "fried" the video card you wouldn't get anything on the screen. Most Likely the wrong driver got installed or you need to check video properties to set video screen size and drivers installed.
Happens when installing updated video drivers.
Note: MS Update has installed incorrect drivers because thay were "NEW" but were incompatible with the video card on my systems before. Had to unistall "NEW" and reinstall "OLD".

256 MB Nvidia GeForce Go 7800 for Inspiron 9400/E1705 Card Failu


Both solutions are wrong. The Dell Inspiron 9400/1705 is a laptop. If you buy a Nvidia GeForce Go 7800 for this laptop, you need to buy a Dell Inspiron 9400/E1705 motherboard for a discrete video card. The integrated video is a Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950. The integrated video has the video chipset on the motherboard and the discrete video (GeForce Go 7800) has the video chipset on the video card.

I have Dell laptop inspiron 630m. I formated the laptop then the display driver is missing. Its showing all the things except its display got more wider


just check your video card model, then go online to download the video card driver.
in case you have a build-in-video card like intel .....somethings, just go back dell.com and check your model , and download the video card driver.
