Re: pcg-xg28 no display

Either the video card is bad, or the memory is bad. Replace the memory first to see if that fixes the problem. Also, if capable, reseat the CPU, which is located beneath the Keyboard.

I have a sony viao all in one desktop model num pcg-252l i replaced the screen and i trun it on and it lights up but it stays all white

A white screen meant the LCD controller was not working - what you saw was the backlight without polarization in front of it. If the cpu fan isn't spinning, that means the system board doesn't detect the right startup conditions. You probably connected the inverter improperly and it may be preventing booting, or you may have damaged a component with static.

Hook a spare monitor to the video output of the laptop, if picture okay! the LCD panel display is defective and most be replaced. But if symptom is the same on both screens it indicates a bad Video Graphic Card normally built into the motherboard.

When I boot up my Dell Inspiron 6400 I can see the Dell logo then it goes black. What is the problem: lcd, inverter, tubes or anything else. I used an external monitor and the computer works fine. Thank...

Obviously the issue is with the computer's inverter cable. It's not the LCD issue at all.

When dell d810 computer is powered on many colored vertical lines appear on display booting is stopped

If this happens after a few initial screens go by with no issue and then windows starts loading and it hangs then it's a software problem.

If the lines appear right away and you never see any software loading then it's a hardware issue.

It could be an issue with the video card, mainboard, LCD, or the wires that go from the mainboard up to the LCD screen. The odd part is that a video issue shouldn't stop it from booting, so that points more towards a mainboard issue.

Are you sure it's not booting? Maybe just the display is out.
Watch the disk drive light and see if it continues flickering for a few minutes after the video goes, out.

Did you have an trouble with the hinges on this laptop? Just asking because the display wires are tiny and fragile and they travel up to the LCD passing near the hinge area.

If you are brave and reasonably handy and can read a detailed service manual you could try reseating some of the internal connectors but that gets pretty involved and the problem is more likely with the LCD itself or the mainboard.

There is a lot of info about this on the Dell communities that covers many models and some of them mention known problems that Dell fixes for free. See the link below, then call Dell. Be polite but firm and mention the recall because it seems to cover the D810 so they may fix it for free.

Hello, I have a Dell D600. and the screen froze the other day. I did a hard restart and now the screen is pitch black at startup (but the systems seems to be running). Please help

The first thing to do is determine if the system actually is running or is it in a no POST configuration.
  1. If you are getting any video at all (Dell Splash Screen at boot) then try booting into the Safe Mode (F8 at boot) If you can get into the safe mode, then try a system restore to the day before the issue
  2. If you are not getting any video, then try using an external monitor and toggling it on with FN + F8 If you get video on an external display, then there is an issue with the LCD most likely and I'd try reseating the video cable under the keyboard as a place to start.
If you are not getting any video, then try this:

Sony Vaio PCG-K23 LCD Monitor will work with Ubuntu or at c:prompt but the instant Windows loads it goes black. I've uninstalled, fdisked, reinstalled and so on what seems to be 100 times to no avail. I...

hook the laptop back up to the external monitor, once it boots and has settled, I would like you to hold down the Fn key which should be at the lower left of the keyboard and tap the F7 key. This will toggle the video output from external to internal or both at the same time. I have never heard of an issue where Ubuntu will allow a video signal, but now windows. I hope this works for you.

Screen is white

You could have a video controller problem or a LCD screen problem, what you are seeing is the backlighting but no video information.
To check if you have a video problem, connect an external monitor to your laptop and bootup your laptop, if you see Windows booting up the external monitor then the video controller is OK, and your problem is the LCD screen or the video cable connection on the motherboard (may need reseating).
If you cannot fix the LCD screen then use your laptop with an external monitor.

Did you fix the Dell Insipirion 9200 video problem?

This sounds like your video settings could be set improperly, did you attempt to boot up in safe mode and then change your display options? Sometimes you need to monkey with windows to get it to accept new video settings, try removing the video display from the control panel, if this has been done and you can't correct the issue a reload may be in order or at worst case you may have a malfunctioning video card

Dell Inspiron 6000 monitor display problem

Well it is most likely a issue with the Video driver as you are able to boot to the safe mode.I would suggest going back to the safe mode and deleting the present driver for the video from the device manager.before you restart the system just download the latest version from the so that you can reinstall it.Also check in the graphic properties which screen is set to be the defuat.Incase still not working i would suggest reinstalling the operating system before replacing any hardware.
