Definitely there is nothing wrong with your with your computer but the LCD components only. If your computer still under warranty, I suggest you contact Dell Technical Support so you don't need to spend. However, if you are not sure go to http://support.dell .com ad provide your service tag which you can find underneath/bottom of your notebook. Please post your comment if the information provided has been helpful that could help move to the next rank and further improve my support assistance. Thank you and regards.

Definitely the problem is with the LCD screen... Contact Dell if you are stii under warranty or else please replace the part with the help of a local tech.. Replacing a part for a computer that is out of warranty is costly in dell.. They would charge you more....

you can try Fn + F8 and see if the display was toggled for external (Wait about 15 seconds before pressing a 2nd time) that is the keystroke from (LCD, External, LCD and External)
If no go, see if your system keeps video displayed in the safe mode (F8 at boot, select Safe mode from the boot menu)
you can also run diags on the LCD (Power button + D) or PSA diagnostics and see if the video stays on out of the operating system (Power +Fn)

My Dell Latitude D630 will power on but the screen is black....nothing will show not even the startup page for windows. What do you think the problem may be


I would suspect either the video card or your LCD screen.. A good test is to hook up an external monitor and see if that works. Be aware that when you start it up, you will have to hit the function key and special function key combo to switch it to the external display.
On the latitude, that is the Fn key plus the F8 key.

LCD dim.


If you have replaced the screen and the inverter, about the only thing left is the flexible cable from the monitor to the video card. I take it that the Fn+F8 makes no difference?

The back lighting for the LCD panel has gone out. The picture is there, you just can't see it without the backlighting. So, it could be the Inverter that supplies power to the back lights or it could be the CCFT lamps that burned out. In either case your local computer repair shop should be able to fix it. If it is still under warranty take it back to where you bought it and they should have it repaired under warranty.
