I have to assume you have tried through existing means to change brightness and contrast.
These are generally provided for the user.

LCD screens are backlit via a fluorescent lamp. This is a high voltage device so the problem could come from either a failing lamp or the inverter circuit that drives it.

Access to the lamp varies greatly and to even check it may well be a job for a technician.

Dell Inspiron 1521 laptop monitor is dark.


It is a posible LCD problem, Might gone defective.

First trouble shooting is to turn off your laptop completele and the remove the battery and the charger and any accesories connected on yur lap top. Then press the power button for 1 minute. It will reset the settings of your laptop to default if you accidentally press the command for the hotkey to turn off the built in monitor and enabled the extended monitor.

If the issue persist it means it is an issue with the LCD and needs to be replaced.

Press and hold the "Ctrl" and "F11" keys simultaneously when the Dell splash screen appears. The "Dell PC Restore by Symantec" window will appear. Click "Restore."
Just make sure you have saved all your data before doing that.

Dell inspiron 6000 screen splitting


Hi,
This is a generic problem in most of Dell Laptops ( mostly inspiron ). It is caused due to a fatal fault or breakage in the Hinge Assembly. You need a new Hinge Assembly. Is it splitting more on decreasing the angle of the monitor. If yes, Hinge assembly is the only culprit. If you are under Warrenty then Dell will be liable for it and replace it free. If not under Warrenty, I approx. costs 300$. Thank you Sir, Have a nice day.

Dark screen ,fn does not work


I would suggest connecting the laptop to an external monitor, just to make sure that it is all running correctly.

If you can see a very dim image on the screen then the backlight is out. This can be a light problem or the inverter that powers the backlight could be bad. The inverter is not real dificult to change and also is not very expensive. If it is the backlight tho, it is easier to just change out the entire screen.

Hope this helps

I hope this will solve your issue.

Good Luck.

The make and model do not matter. Your backlight is going and will have to be replaced. A good computer shop will be able to do it.

Want to have dual monitor feature in my dell laptop


You will have to check and make sure that your video graphics hardware will support the dual option. If not, you will have to purchase a PCMCIA video graphics adapter that supports a second monitor.
