    Where in MN do you fish? We moved from Hopkins to TX a few years ago. Enjoyed a few days at Lake of the Woods last Spring even though the catches were few and small.

    Checked all screws. They are all tight. What else? Could hinges be bad or out of alignment? How do I get at those?

Here's the secret to tighten the screen.: the display hinges are secured in two places. On the body of the computer, there are five screws (use a #1 Philips screwdriver) labeled "D". Make sure they are tight. (They were on mine.)
On the display, the hinges are held together by the same screws that clamp the bezel to the LCD screen. They're hidden by two rubber bumpers on the lower left and lower right of the screen. Pry the bumpers off with your fingernail, tighten the screws, and voila! Your display has been fixed. The bumpers will stick back on with the leftover adhesive.

    many can be easily tightened with just

    the exposed screws on the back of the unit, others require the removal of

    the hinge covers or back panel to tighten all the screws... and if you have

    waited too long and some screws have gone missing then replacements can be

    purchased. you can look up how your model is assembled by reading the

    service manual found on


    step 1locate screws and determen if they are the sorse of the problem
    you have an dell inspiron e1505 the 4 screws are on the back next to
    the fan intake/exhaust vent and next to the charger hole these two
    should be under little stickers, …

    step 2fix it
    you have to do now is just carefully screw in screws. do not strip
    screws, if you damage your laptop or yourself its not my fault this may
    not work on all laptops

    Refer to the Dell service manual for exact instructions.

    sure you have tightened the screws under the display bezel and hinge
    cover. You do not need to disconnect the display from the laptop. Just
    remove the bezel by carefully removing the rubber bumpers that cover
    the screws, they will remain sticky so you can replace them when your
    are done. Then remove the screws and carefully pry the bezel off. It
    helps to use your finger nail and carefully push the screen edge of the
    bezel away towards the edge of the laptop while lifting up. Once off
    you will find the hinge screws.

    Now you need to tighten the
    bottom half the hinge screws. There is an indentation of the left side
    of the hinge cover (where the power button is) that you can use a screw
    driver to pry it up. Then tighten those hinge screws.

    If tightening the screws does not fix the problem then your hinges are worn and will need to be replaced.

Where can i find the process to change a D410 inverter

If the screen on your laptop is dimming or not working at all, the fault may lie in the Dell Latitude D410 Inverter --the device that powers the screen's backlight. Replacing an Dell Latitude D410 LCD inverter will require some finesse, but you do not need a technical background. If you are comfortable with opening up your laptop, then this is a do-it-yourself project.
1. Unplug your laptop and remove the battery pack.
2. Locate the rubber screw covers around your laptop screen. There are typically four, but some models may have more.
3. Remove the screw covers. Take care not to lose any. They pop off and, if you are not careful, could go flying.
4. Place your fingers between the front bezel (the plastic piece around the LCD screen) and the screen. Gently work your way around the screen to remove the front bezel and expose the screen assembly.
5. Remove the inverter from the screen assembly. It is held on by tape in most models. In some models the Dell Latitude D410 Inverter may be right at the bottom of the screen assembly, below the actual LCD. Other models have the Dell Latitude D410 LCD inverter behind the screen. To disassemble the screen, you will need to either unscrew the screen from its metal holder, or just lift the screen out to expose the inverter.
6. Disconnect the wires leading from the Dell Latitude D410 Inverter. One wire goes to the backlight, while the other goes to the video card.
7. Look on the back of the Dell Latitude D410 LCD inverter for a model number or serial number. Having this exact number will make it easier to order a replacement.
8. Connect the video wire and the backlight wire into the new inverter and affix it using the tape that held the original in place. If you do not have that tape anymore, or it has lost its adhesiveness, you can buy more from computer parts retailers.
9. Put the screen back in place if you need to, and snap the front bezel back on.
10. Screw the front bezel screws back in, and place the screw covers back in place.
