Question about Dell Inspiron 700M Notebook

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.

When i turn on the laptop. the screen stays blank


Look for the little button that the lid presses to shut off the monitor.

Make sure it is clean and free of anything that will stop it from working.

If it does not release all the way the monitor will stay off.

Have you tried pressing the 'INFO' button? This little button will toggle between camera info on display/no info on display (when the display isn't in use to display pictures).

Does the power light stay on? If so, you have an inverter problem. If the power light goes off, you have a power supply problem.

Screen on Motorola v3xx doesn/t dim - ie it stays lit/drain power


I have the same problem every so often and found powering off, then back on, closing lid just after powering on will reset the display so that it blanks again. Just like you, I find this does not permanently resolve the issue.

Pioneer Dv 285 powers down after 15sec


Hi There, I've got the same problems with my DV 285. My power started going off approximately 5 to 10 minutes into the DVD. The only button that seems to work is the OPEN/CLOSE button. Once the tray closes, the unit shuts off. I can't even use the on/standby button to turn it on.

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

Screen going blank and laptop freezes.


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.

Turning on


I second quavuama. I had the same symptoms after my four-year-old "broke" it. He actually figured it out and suggested the fix. He said "Daddy, the little button is stuck..." OK, yeah right, I said. But he pointed to the small auto shut-off button just above the source and setup buttons. When the lid closes the button is pushed down and off goes the picture. Well little four-year-old fingers was fingering the button and it got stuck in the down position. I used a sharp tip to work it back to the "sprung" position. Picture now comes on.
