Computer powers on but screen goes off unexplainably while power still on.


Laptop computers have power saver features that will blank the screen after a period of no input. Default on these can be as short as one minute. Users can change these settings to avoid screen blanking, especially when doing thins like watching movies or streaming video. The power saver feature may be different, and thus the screen shut off timer may be different when the unit is plugged in.

I have a dell Vostro 3300 laptop I have a problem with graphic card,it seems to be installed but I can't run any screen saver or game! I updated the driver but it didn't help


If you have installed Windows XP, you'll find the NVidia portion of the switchable video configuration will no longer function (It is only supported in Vista and Windows7)
If you install the Notebook system software, Chipset then the Intel Video driver you should have normal Intel Video functions.
If not running XP, post your OS and any software changes you have made to the system

Dell Vostro screen has started going black every


Check the power settings. Start/Control Panel/Power Options. There is a setting separate from the screen saver to turn off the screen in the Power Options control panel. DVD playback overrides the power options settings.

Turn on my Dell Vostro 1500 and all I get is a black screen


Remove and re-seat your RAM cards. Remove your battery but leave the power supply attached. Try to start. If this doesn't work, your motherboard has died and needs to be replaced. Not a do-it-yourself job unfortunately.

Getting frequent black screens on 1501 Inspiron Laptop


Black screen is probably a screen saver or the screen is turned off by power management software.
Check your screensaver setting. Change the screensaver to None to disable screensaver.
I assume you are using Windows XP.
If the LCD is turned off by power management, on the same screen with screen saver, on the lower part of the box there is a Power button. Click to open Power Options Properties. Set your monitor power properties there.
When the screen go blank and you have to push power button, probably the computer is set to go to stand by mode after some idle minutes. You can also set it here in system standby setting.

New Dell desktop computer - installed Norton Security 2007 - sreensaver and energy modes don't work


Since Norton and many other virus protection programs run in the background of the computer, when you try to go into standby mode, or screen saver mode, the program is recognized as an action by the user, hence triggering the computer to return to normal use. So all you have to do is turn off Norton before you go into standby mode, and this should fix the problem.
