Your motherboard is not the problem. Try this. When you are on your main desktop right click your mouse. Click properties, click on settings. This will show you your monitor settings. Make sure that you have 32 bit clicked on quality. Change your screen resolution so your numbers are higher. Just change it to the resolution that you want. If this does not correct this go to this link to update your video driver http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&ServiceTag=&SystemID=INS_PNT_P4_9100&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid=
Just copy and paste. This will take you to the page for your laptop. Just select your operation system. Hope this helps.

    Try this, go to your local goodwill or check out craigslist and get yourself a cheap monitor. Plug it into your port on the back of your computer at least this way you can see what is going on with your system. Let me know if you do this and will see where to go from there.

I have a dell 1520 inspiron.. and just now i found on the mid top of the screen a white horizontal line running from right to left side, facing the laptop.. i just want to ask what's the probable cause of...


Hopefully, pixels on the screen light-up ONLY when Windows tells them to light-up. However, you have some electrical problem inside the LCD screen, causing a "row" of LEDs to ALWAYS light-up.

So, your LCD is just "slightly" broken.

It's probably about $200 for a replacement LCD screen,
plus $60 to $75 for "labour" to replace it,
if the white-line annoys you too much.

Cant remember password to access laptop dell inspiron 9100 , how can i change it or go around it ? thanks


Its better if you can reinstall the OS...
Dell has a default partition on the computer and you can install with the same..
If you have windows vista on the computer then tap F8 when the computer turns on and then you will be able to see the advanced boot options.. Select repair my computer.. In the repair my computer screen select the dell factory image restore...
Your computer will go through the installation and it will be up and running...
If you have windows Xp then you have to turn on the computer and when the dell logo appears you have to simultaneously press control and the F11key.. You will be able to reinstall the OS in this way..
If you dont find this default partition then go ahead and reinstall the OS and then install all the drivers for the system....

I have reinstalled the software on my Inspiron 9100. Everything installs fine until I install either the Intel chipset drivers or XP SP2 or SP3 updates and then after a reboot the screen displays...


Sounds like a problem with the Video Driver...You can always opt out of installing the chipset driver as really the computer can run without it. Does the Dell website have alternative chipset drivers for this model besides the Intel one? If so try it.

The images on my computer are blurred


if you use the default dell settings you may experience the problem with blurry images in Internet Explorer. This effect is due to the automatic scaling in IE6 and above. IE tries to resize the images so that everything looks the same as when everything is at smaller dpi, but does a terrible job at it, resulting in blurry and unreadable images. Change the following registry setting from 1 to 0 in order to disable this "feature":
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\UseHR
[1] Adjusting Scale to Higher DPI Screens (MSDN)



good luck with this. please do this, and get back if u run into a problem. also, if this fixes the problem please rate my answer. thanks so much, Joe

That unit has an Inverter board, just below the screen in the LCD panel.
It is the unit that actually brughtens the LCD.
