    I have a similar problem with my screen - laptop purchased only 3 weeks ago. The right hand part of the screen is black for about 1.5" in from the side - like a rectangle shaped blackness.



    what could cause that? It just was like that when I restarted it yesterday. The night before it was fine.

My dell inspiron 6400 has small horz line on screen


If you have tried this with an external monitor (and the line is not there)
then the problem is either the connection on your display cable or (more likely) a fault on your LCD panel. If it's still under warranty I would let Dell take care of it.
If you want to do it yourself, you need to get a replacement LCD panel, take the screen apart (the top half of the laptop) and switch out the LCD panel. Some small Phillips head screwdrivers are required, the screw heads on hinges etc. are tiny.
While this is not an overly difficult process, it may prove daunting to some people. Most computer repair shops like mine would charge $30-45 for labor on this plus the part, which according to ebay will run about $75. Make certain you get the correct size, as there was a 14.1" and a 15.5" model (They are not interchangeable). Screen size is measured diagonally across the actual screen and does not include the trim.

I hit some button while on AOL...and my screen font size changed to LARGE print...How do I change it back?...have gone to my PC settings, etc...cannot fix it...?


I"m assuming you're using Internet Explorer. On the menu bar go to "View" then go to "Text Size" and choose the size of text you want on your web pages.

DELL inspiron 6400 not switched on


This is a no boot issue. Youre saying that you can perfectly run the PSA diagnostics but doesnt load Windows rather it stays on black screen, meaning the boot loader of Windows failed to load. You need to reinstall windows on your computer

Cannot access my yahoo mail account


Try clicking on the refresh button each time or next time it happens.. If you are you are using Enternet Explorer Version 7.0 5730.11. Then your likely problems are there. I found it happening to me a bit but found it come right when I hit the green arrow tab(refresh button) I could see the page again. I think if I remember rightly at some stage Microsoft said it was a fault of the site you are perusing. Mainly if they had not updated to the new Explorer. That could be why you were experiencing the difficulties in viewing the page. You changed from one broadband to another that dont support the lattest software.
