Question about Dell Inspiron E1505 Notebook

1 Answer

Monitor When the laptop is powered up, it flashes the dell screen and then just goes white. If you connect an external monitor, you can see that the computer is running normal. I replaced the monitor and inverter and had the same result with the white screen. Also, the keyboard is not responding now. The pointer pad does work.

I have a dell e1705,and it has a white screen what is wrong?

You could have a loose video cable connection that attaches to the motherboard or you may have a faulty on-board video.
Try connecting an external monitor to your Dell, power up the external monitor fist and then boot up the Dell laptop. The video will automatically divert to the external monitor if the on-board video is OK.
This means the video cable/connector needs re-seating or the video cable is faulty.

Wont see projector

Connecting an External Monitor or Data Projector
You can switch to an external monitor or data projector by two methods. 1. Connect the external monitor to the laptop's video port, power up the external monitor first and the laptop. The video information will automatically switch to the external monitor. 2. If you power up the laptop first then you can switch the video output to the external monitor by pressing the Fn key and one of the Function keys, depending upon your make and model laptop. You can also toggle between the external monitor or both LCD screen plus the external monitor or back to LCD screen only by pressing the Fn key plus one of the function key. Here is a list of key combinations for some of the laptops :- IBM ThinkPad = Fn + F7 HP and Compaq = Fn + F4 Toshiba = Fn + F5 Dell = Fn + F8

White screen

The white screen you are getting is it just right after turning on the computer? If yes it means that you were not able to see the Dell logo correct?

Try connecting an external monitor thru VGA. While monitor and laptop is on with white screen please do this. Hold down Fn key then press F8 at the same time. This will toggle the display from the laptop to external monitor. If laptop displays to external monitor means that laptop LCD needs to be replaced.

If you do not have an external monitor try this.
While laptop is OFF. Do this. Hold down the D key then press power button at the same time.
Check if the laptop will display colors the whole screen. If you still see white screen then LCD needs replacement.

LCD mean LCD panel or the whole screen together with LCD cable and Inverter.

Hope this helps.

When power on the screen is white with pixie colored lines going thru can not see screen then screen goes black windows will try to load but goes all black but power is still on

sounds like either an LCD panel problem, or a video controller. First thing, connect an external monitor and test if the same thing happens with it. You may need to press FN + F8 together to switch the display to the external monitor. If same thing happens, there is a problem with the video card. Try to boot in safe mode and if same issue, you either need to proceed in getting a new video card/motherboard if the problem is happening even during the Dell BIOS screen. If it happens pass the BIOS screen only, you may try a reinstall or repair of Windows. If external monitor is okay, you'll need an LCD Panel repair/replacement. Let us know how it goes and your rating/comment would be appreciated.

The screen goes very dark within a minute after booting up = I can just barely see the menu page

When you say screen goes very dark when it booted to windows so it means that when you turned on the laptop when the dell logo flashes the screen was fine? if thats the case could you please try this. after turning on the laptop you will see the dell logo flashes immediately keep tapping on F2 and then it will show you the BIOS setup utility, please check if in BIOS setup display goes dark as well. If yes then try this, after turning on the computer when dell logo flashes keep tapping on F12 to boot menu then select utility partition to run the diagnostics. Please run test on the LCD check if display goes black when running the LCD test. Then try this when you sees the dell logo keep tapping on F8 to boot in safe mode check if in safe mode display goes very dark. Try this too, boot in F8 then select last known good configuration check if the settings on your display will be fix. If you can boot to safe mode no problem then uninstall the display or video driver. then restart computer.
You can also try to connect an external monitor if you have one just try to isolate if issue is on the LCD or the video card. If the display is dark as well in external monitor then video card needs to be reseated if fails then replaced. In situation like this most video cards is integrated to the motherboards. So replace motherboard.

Monitor does not work, computer starts up, dell prompts load, windows prompts load then screen goes black. i can hear everything loading but no display.

connect an external monitor on your machine and check if display is ok on the external monitor. if yes, try to re-install your video driver and check if display is ok on your laptop.

if both doesnt have display (external monitor and laptop's display) i suspected your lcd display is faulty.

Today I noticed that when turning on computer, after 1-2 mins the screen goe black and I cant see anything. I noticed in the past month that occasionaly I get lightening flashes in the background. this...

To determine if the LCD screen is faulty ot the video card, connect an external monitor to the laptop's video port. Power up the external monitor first and the boot up the laptop. The video image should automatically switch to the external monitor. If you don't get flashes on the monitor then the video card is OK and the fault lies with the LCD screen. Flashes coud be caused by a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp. A fault is usually easier to diagnose when it is not intermitten.
