Question about Dell Inspiron 700M Notebook

1 Answer

Blank screen The power button stays on when I close the screen shut. The little plastic button doesn't seem to be the problem. If I turn the power off, then on, all I get is a black screen. Did my screen burn out??

The power is supposed to stay on when that little plastic button is pressed(screen switch)the screen switch activates hibernate and power saving;if you press the power button a screen will open informing you what programs are currently working.by shutting down you have caused an illegal command.
hopefully if you restart in safemode then shut down correctly and restart every thing should be ok.

HP Pavalian laptop screen gone black and blank.


It seems like the lcd back light may have failed can you see a faint image on the screen when you look really close, try it with a torch. If you dont see even the faintest image the inverter has failed and needs to be replaced. If you look on youtube again and search for videos of replacing both the back light and the inverter it will give you some info on how to change them. Do a google search for hp spares and you will probably find what you are looking, i think the inverter is about £30 and the back light is bit cheaper. hope this helps.

Screen going blank and laptop freezes.


One thing that I've noticed about the Inspiron 1000, is the LCD ground is done exclusively thru the hinges. Try tightening the LCD hinge screws (Marked with a (D)) 2 on the bottom of the chassis and possibly 2 on the back. (I just tightned every screw I could find)

Once the ground connection is improved, the LCD may work better

Blank screen...no keys working


Hi

is the acer still covered by the warranty? you can get it repaired for free if it is, its a common fault with these, my friend over here in finland has one of those and it did the same thing, he got it replaced / fixed for free since it was under warranty. get yours fixed also.

My laptop comes on but the screen stays blank??


Unplug the power, remove the battery and then hold the power button for 30 to 60 seconds. Then reattach the power and attempt a boot. It worked for me! Just shutdown, put the battery back in you're good to go. Worked for me so definitely worth a try.
Good luck

Satellite screen is blank & won't shut down


Don't know why the screen is blank. Toggle the F9 key to make sure you didn't accidentally toogle off the screen.

As far as turning off the power and shutting down the computer, the old stand-by is to take out the battery and then pull the plug. The computer will power down. Replace the battery, replace the plug and then push the start button. You may have to start it up in SAFE mode since the shut down process was not the "normal' process the computer expects to follow.

Go into the diplay properties, under the screen saver tab there is a button marked power, open this. Under one of the tabs there is a section that reads, when I close the lid, under this section set it as never.
