Dell Inspiron 2200 boots up but 1-2 min in the screen goes to a faint black. You can still see the desktop and everything just very faintly. Like a fain transparent black.


Check with your Power Plan or screen saver option, you might have it adjusted to super energy saving to make your battery last longer and have the screen dim, or backlight shut off since you mention it take 1-2 min to boot up ...see if that might help.... If that didn't do the job, I suspect your backlit lighting might be going bad. Let me know what Operating system you are using too. So like I said, check your screen save and if it is set to dim, or shurt off withing a minute or two... set it to something longer to see if that works.

My dell inspiron 1501 laptop has been flickeri ng colors or a lrge strip down middle , now half the screen is black with little color line


hello
This could be anything from the screen is dying or the inverter (electronic board that powers the screen' back light).

If you press slightly at the top of the screen, see if the lines will disappear or not, if it does then come back again; you might need to change your lcd.
hope it helped

Dell Inspiron 1501 laptop screen will not work.


If you hear the hard drive spinning and you think Windows is working but you can't see an image then :-
You could have a defective screen - a defective inverter or a CCFL lamp or simply the video cable needs reseating. After reseating the video cable and the problem is still there then :-
To determine if you have a LCD screen or video card problem, read this and follow the instructions.

Defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom:

  • Screen flashs on red/pink and off.
  • Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal.
  • Picture flickering with dim display or appear black.
  • Picture flickering on and off.
All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp

Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power it up, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight.

Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

Dell Inspiron 1501, died and will not restart


Try to remove the battery and unplug the power supply, then hold down the power button for about 10 seconds. If this doesn't work, it could be that the laptop overheated while watching the DVD.
