Dell inspiron 6000 Pentium M blank screen

The cat knocked my Dell Inspiron 6000 off the chair yesterday. I ran the check with the Fn key and all passed except for the LCD connection test. It states unable to detect LCD. I have an external monitor plugged in to see the screen, as my is just blue. Any advice would be appreciated.I fell about 2 feet onto carpet. With the external screen everything seems to work fine. The laptop is a little over a year old and has a Pentium M processor. Can you explain to me how to open this unit and fix it?

CANNOT SWITCH THE WIRELESS ON...ITS A INSPIRON 6000


Have you tried "Fn+F2" (both keys together) by any chance? If that still fails, you might need to check if you have the proper wireless card driver installed (can download the latest Dell wireless drivers from their website)

My computer will not load up


Likely a hard drive failure. With system off, hold the Fn Key and press the power button, this should launch diagnostics If the diags fail on the hard drive then you have a confirmed failure. If the diags don't run, then try booting to the resource CD to run them.

Dell Inspiron 6000 to TV


On a dell laptop, the key combo FN  F8 cycles through the display options. Laptop screen, External screen, Laptop and External screen at the same time.  Try pressing the FN F8 key to get the video to display on both laptop and lcd and the same time.  If that doesn't work you can also change the settings on what the laptop does when the lid is closed.  Check the power settings in the control panel.

MY LAPTOP GIVE ME A BLACK SCREEN


hi!

black screen at startup? do you still see the Dell logo at startup? try pressing Fn+F8 at the same time at the black screen and see if it works. Or else, try a working external monitor and check if its a OS problem or a screen problem. You can also run a diagnostic test by holding down the Fn key while its off and then press the power button while still pressing on the function key to check if you will still see the diagnostic test for the LCD.
