Question about Computers & Internet

Open Question

I have a Dell Vostro 1310 laptop. Its problem started while I was working on it; suddenly, the backlight began alternating on and off. Nothing worked so I just turned it off. Now when I turn it on, I only get a black screen, I can't get to the BIOS. I checked the video output by using another LCD. I can see the screen when the laptop is connected to another display, but there are many small black lines on the screen. This problem doesn't occur every time, but it's happening much too often.

SOURCE: blank screen

Check the fan on your video card if it has one. If it does have one and it's not working correctly then it will overheat very quickly.
This sort of issue can be caused by a million things but your description points to the card overheating or the memory on the video card dying.

SOURCE: Laptop won't boot (display problems)

If the diagnostics displays on the LCD screen but you get no display when Windows starts to load, it sounds like you have a video software driver problem. Try tapping the F8 key when you power on your laptop and boot in Safe mode. If it works in safe mode then you need to check you driver. You can also try connecting the laptop to an eternal monitor and see what happens.

SOURCE: Dell Vostro 1400 LCD Showing Black Screen

If you connected the laptop to an external monitor via VGA and the display, then it is not "an NVIDIA GPU defect" .

The video chipset connected to the LCD screen is the same connected to the external VGA port, and is working fine since picture is OK on monitor.

More likely the problem is either LCD ribbon cable, or LCD display, the fact that the backlight is working means that the inverter is also working.

SOURCE: I am having a problem with my Nvidia Geforce 5500

Maybe it's a temperature related problem.Youll have to clean the Video Card and CPU heat sink (better with compressed air) :

>Disconect the computer.
>open it up
>carefully take the video card out, watch for screws and plastic lock at the AGP/PCI/PCI express slot.
>spray compressed air to clean the heatsink.
>attemp to take the cpu heatsink out too. if not possible just spray the air to the heatsink inside the computer.
>spray every slot and port with the compressed air
>reinstall vid card and CPU heatsink.
>accomodate al the cables to increase airflow
>check everything properly conected
>close everythinkg


Also I would replace the flat IDE cables with round cables to increase airflow.

If that is not helping, maybe its better to monitor your CPU, RAM and vid card temp.
