Dell inspiron 9300 laptop monitor problems

My laptop only has about 6 inches of viewable space (on a 17 inch monitor) The rest of it is black with lots of vertical multi colored lines running thru it. Also parts will garble on it. I am hoping against hope it is not the monitor since I have been laid off and can not afford another one. Maybe an inverter or cable?? thanks in advance!

    i have the same problem too but what's weird is when i install the driver for my video card it'll expand my screen display to full screen covering all 15". but when i try to play games then it'll shrink back to having the black boarders. i'm not sure if it's my graphic card or not cause also when i'm booting up, my bios, startup screen are all small. only when it's fully booted with the video card drivers install that it'll look normal. i have no idea what's going on.

Hey Chuck!
Sure sounds like a monitor problem. Wouldn't be the inverter. You could sure try to reseat the cables. One end or the other may have come a little loose. (He sez, with hope in his heart!) . Have included a link for you to get a copy of the service manual, just in case it would be of use to you.

If it is the monitor, you might try to hook up an external monitor, so that you could still use it. That would kinda defeat the portability function of the laptop, but would make it usable.

If you need any additional information, please feel free to ask.

How to fix a black screen on a dell inspiron 9300

Hook this up to an external monitor and see if you get video. The key combination to activate the external port, normal key that is, [FN]+F4. You may find that you have accidentally hit that combination and turned your monitor off. There are usually 3 positions for the monitor. Monitor and External, Monitor only, and External only so you may have to push the combination a few times. If the external monitor works your problem is your LCD and your best best is to take it to a shop and find out exactly which part is bad unless your familiar with how to open up the laptop and replace parts. If the External monitor does not activate, your only choice is to take it in or replace it. The video card on the motherboard has gone out if the External monitor doesn't come on.

Assuming that you have Audio already functional, the solution is to set your system to "Clone" rather than "Extend" video. Right click on desktop > properties > settings > click on second monitor > uncheck extend monitor box (below). Click ok, press Fn + F8 to Clone.

Vertical lines in my laptop screen

Try connecting an external monitor to the Dell Inspiron 9300 and see if the vertical line is also present on the monitor. If the monitor display is fine, then your laptop’s LCD display panel is defective. If the monitor also displays the vertical line, then your problem is with either the video card or motherboard located inside your laptop.
Not sure if the Compaq Presario has an external monitor plug, but if it does the above procedure can be applied to that one as well.
