Dell c400 latitude has a 1in border around the screen after windows boot up.


Hi poperwog,
The easiest way to determine if this issue is a hardware or software failure is by performing a power drain. Here's how you will do it.
1. Turn off the computer completely.
2. Unplug the AC adapter from the power outlet.
3. Remove the battery from the unit.
4. Now, press the power button for about 15-20 seconds.
5. Put the battery back in and plug the unit.
6. Turn it on and observe the system.
If this did not work, it is a hardware failure (display issue).
Hope it helps.
Thank you for using FixYa.

Hi There,

For a Dell you'll want a Dell Windows Operating System Disc. XP, or Vista. Turn on the 'puter and insert the disk. Power off. Power back on and as soon as you press the power button begin pressing F12 repeatedly. This will take you to a One Time Boot selection menu. Choose CD/DVD and hit enter. You'll then see "Press any key to boot from CD". Do so immediately and away you go.

Regards,

Selk

Internal Battery Problem?


This is what we call a "NO POST" problem. You need to contact Dell Tech Support for this to narrow down the issue to a part. This could be caused by any part that is not letting the computer to power on or boot up. Note: You may need to tear-down the computer for this issue whe call tech support.

Dell C400 will not boot using LCD screen when cold


I have seen this problem before, after booting to the external monitor go into the display settings and try setting the resolution to 1024 X 768 and the color settng to 16 bit or preferably 32 bit. If you can do this, then shut down the laptop remove the external monitor and try booting on the LCD display. BPCS

Dell latitude C400 will not boot from hard drive.


Hi, This sounds like a dead hard drive. Still, you may want to try: 1. Enter your CMOS/BIOS and verify that your laptop can detect the hard drive. Further check if it is configured to boot first from the HD; 2. Slip in your XP or Recovery CD and boot from that. It may be that the boot section/files of your HD got messed up. When prompted, instruct the CD to repair; 3. Remove your laptop's HD and connect it to a 2nd PC as an external/removable drive using a 2.5 enclusore with USB attachment. Thereafter proceed to diagnose, check and hopefully recover your important files; 4. If confirmed of a defective HD, replace and reinstall your OS. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turned up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
