First study your keyboard.
Second, look for the Fn key. It shold be at the bottom left of the keyboard.
Third, look at the function keys (F1, F2, etc.) You should find one with blue writing that says " CRT/LCD".
Fourth, start your system and wait until you think the system is powered up all the way and ready to be used. While pressing on the Fn key, press the CRT/LCD key one time. The external monitor should come on; if it doesn't, repeat once more. It takes three movements to go back to the original position. Try it, it should work. I am in the same predicament because I can't find the correct screen for my laptop. Good luck.

How do i switch a dell inspiron with a broken screen to a vga monitor?


Look at the "F" keys. One of them has a drawing of a screen. Press it and your external screen should work, or, plug the external screen in before youboot up. The pc will detect the external scree and switch automatically.

DELL INSPIRON 1525 HELP


It should be a simple fix. Start your laptop and pay attention to the screen. Press the F12 key (or F11) to enter "SETUP" then find the NUMLOC command and make sure that its DISABLED or OFF. This will turn this option off andyou will only be able to use the number's keys on the top of the keyboard. Be careful when entering SETUP. You don't want to change anything you don't have to.

DELL INSPIRON 1525 LAPTOPPOWERS UP BUT SCREEN IS BLACK


Hi,

If you have an external monitor, try connecting the laptop to it, then toggle FN+F8 to project display from lalaptop to external monitor.

If the external monitor does not have a display aswell (totally blank) , then its a problem with the video card.

You can also run an LCD Bist test by turning off the system , then while the system is turned off press D + power , If you dont hear a beep but no display at all, then its an LCD problem.


Hope this helps


Thank you.

Keyboard on inspiron 1525 locked . Cant type any character.


Look on your keyboard. On most laptops there is a function key that will lock the keyboard. You would need to pres the [Fn] key and the appropriate [F#] key. In mine the combination would be [Fn+F1] keys.

Inspiron 1525 screen goes black, image is very faint on the screen. computer remains on. What is the problem


Sounds like the backlight for the screen has died the part isn't that pricey but having it put in will probably cost almost as much as replacing the laptop. You can always plug into an external monitor, however that is not very portable

My Dell inspiron 1525 works fine on an external monitor, but when it come to it's LCD; it works with a very low light, I can hardly read what's displayed on it, I tried a working LCD from an other laptop,...


Try increasing the brightness of the system. Laptops have "Fn" combination buttons that allow you to use some shortcuts. Look for a button on the keyboard that usually looks like a sun or bright object with an arrow pointing up. Press and hold the "Fn" button down and press the designated button to increase brightness.

Hope this helps!

I have broken display on my dell inspiron 1525. whre could i order new one and how to replace the old one . jan


You have got 2 choices.
1. Replace to LCD screen, get a repairman to do it for you or do it yourself. If you want to DIY and purchase a new screen have a look at www.lcdpart.com
2. If you don't want to replace the screen then connect an external monitor to the laptop, then it won't be portable.
