Hi,

Connecting an external monitor will not mess up the laptop.

Most laptops have a standard 15 pin VGA external monitor connector. You need to connect the cable from the monitor to the laptop. Booth the Dell and power up the monitor. Soon as the laptop has gone through its routine of booting, press Fn + F8 or F4 (or whatever it is that needs to be pressed to activate the external monitor. It is normally an F key with the small monitor icon or the words CRT/LCD).

Pressing on the two (2) F keys would cycle on laptop display, laptop display + external, external only.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

I have Dell inspiron 1564 (windows 7 64 bit). The monitor goes blank with a screeching noise. I have run the PSA diagnostics but it showed no problem. The laptop runs normally otherwise but this problems...


I now have the same problem with the same Dell model (1564) for the second time in less than a year from purchase. The last time it happened I called the service technician who fixed it. That makes me wonder if this may be a common defect in this dell model, which requires a technician visit every 4 months. I advise you to apply to the company and ask for solution such as providing you a different model as a substitute for the defective one.

Monitor won't come back from "sleep" setting.


Yes it can be, try it on other PC first to narrow down the problem.
Most problems in the Dell are failed transistors, poor solder works, see pictures here for guide: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums

Dell 22" monitor goes black


Hello,

Your monitor probably has bad capacitors now. Bring it to a local electronic repair shop and have the monitor tested. They can easily replace any bad capacitors.

I hope this helps. Have a nice day.
