Question about Dell Latitude D505 Notebook
I have a Dell D505, here is what I'm experiencing:
Upon bootup, the LCD comes on but the bootup screen flickers, flashes, and is distorted. Then the LCD goes to block (although the backlight remains on) and there are intermittent scrambled images that appear on the LCD. The computer will boot up just fine, in fact when I hook up an external monitor the computer operates flawlessly.
I opened up the laptop and verified cables are secure, etc. My hunch is that I either have a bad lcd or a bad graphics chip on the motherboard, but I don't have a lot of experience with Dell Laptop repairs.
Can anyone suggest what the problem is and maybe even a possible solution? Thank you in advance.
Try the following:
Sometimes when you press and hold the corners of the LCD area (not on the LCD itself, but on the frame), and see if it gives you a picture (or at least flickers when you do so).
My opinion is that your LCD could need rewiring or replacing.
