Question about Dell Inspiron 1100 Notebook

1 Answer

Display only stays visible at lowest illumination

Display only stays constantly visible at lowest illumination setting. Raising the illumination (Fn + up arrow) causes the display to disappear (the higher the setting the shorter the time span to disappear). When the display has gone, if I close the lid and re-open, the display will re-appear for a short time.

Sounds like your display's backlight is dying. Your scfreen is in need of replacement. The higher ther brightness setting the faster it quits working.

We have brand new Viewsonic PJL7211 Projectors at the high school that I work at, and they are fantastic machines, however the projector cannot find our HP laptops and so we have to spend mintues...

I dont believe so Sir/madam, my advice would be to configure the settings in order to make them default to connect. That way you should be able to skip the hastle.

Fn+F5 toggle not working

Using the "easy mode" that the computer boots to:

- go to the SETTINGS tab
- then select DESKTOP MODE

your external monitor may not be able to display the
higher resolutions available from the eeepc.

- change the selection from AUTO to MANUAL
then set it to the lowest resolution

- if that works, then increase resolution until you
find the limits of your external monitor.

if you have another monitor available, try it.
you said "like it did before" before what?
have you changed anything else?

Cursor Will Not Stay Put

Try uninstalling the drivers from the device manager, then do a hardware search. It will automatically find the touch pad and reinstall the drivers. If this doesn't work, then check the connector under the keyboard. Disconnect it and reconnect it, they sometimes work loose. If these don't correct the problem, then you have a faulty touch pad and you'll have to replace it.

How do i connect my laptop


Assuming that the laptop is hooked up to the projection TV using the correct cables or connectors and still no video display on the TV, perhaps you need to lower down the laptops screen resolution first using your laptop's screen display before pressing the Fn + F? key.

To lower the screen resolution, right click on any clear area of your desktop, select Properties. click on the Settings tab, move cursor of Screen resolution to farthest left, Apply, Color Quality to lowest, Apply. Additionally, click on the Advanced button, Monitor tab, select lowest Screen refresh rate.

Hope that this be of some help. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
