Question about Dell Inspiron E1505 Notebook

1 Answer

My screen on my Inspiron 1505 goes black after a couple of minutes, and I was told I could hook to a monitor to get my pics off before I "retire" it. What kind of cord do I need to do this, and what are the keys I would use to toggle? My laptop was purchased in 2005. Thanks!

Just connect it to an external monitor with the regular monitor cable. In some cases you do not need to toggle but if you do this should be pretty obvious on the keyboard. Normally it is the fn (function) key and a key that has a picture of a monitor on it. Good luck and if you want to get rid of that old inspiron let me know.

The screen on my Dell Inspiron E 1505 is dim to almost black. Looking closely I can see a little bit and when hooked up to an external monitor I can see my desktop. Is this an expensive problem to fix? ...


sounds like a specific issue with the LCD of the notebook. if the ac adapter is already connected to the system and same issue, try to adjust the brightness level of the LCD usually by pressing FN + up arrow key or FN + right arrow key. if this does not work, you can try to remove and reconnect the LCD cable to the motherboard. If all else fails, proceed to get an LCD replacement either through warranty if available, or by ordering a new LCD.

Dell Inspiron 1525 Laptop..the screen goes almost black after 5 minutes.


The screen goes black while in normal mode right? So try to boot in safe mode (power on then keep tapping F8 then select safe mode). Check if still happens in safe mode.

If screen does not goes black in safe mode it means there might be a software or driver causes problem when running in normal mode. You can try the following (update your anti virus software then run a full system scan, uninstall the video driver then download and install the latest one, uninstall any previous windows update or you can system restore to the time when it was working fine).

If the screen goes black even in safe mode they try connecting the laptop to an external monitor if still goes black, if yes then absolutely no issues with the LCD panel. You can try (uninstall and reinstall the video driver if still persist then this might end up replacing video card or motherboard, but before doing that update the BIOS first).

If does not goes black in ext monitor then the LCD panel might causes the problem. Reseat the LCD cable or inverter if you can.

Inspiron e 1505 does not turn' on


It could be a couple of things, but it seems most likely that it is the RAM Memory that is causing this.  You might need to add more.  I have seen this before with one of my customers, we upgraded his ram from 1.5 to 2 gbs, and his games/windows no longer crashed

When monitor power button is pressed, a small white image appears and alternates briefly between an alalog and digital icon in black then the screen goes blank, no color.


My issue is similar.. however after trying a couple of times it will work. (yes everything is plugged in) It will function for a good 10 minutes before just powering off (blackout) screen.
If you attempt to turn it on after it blacking out, the blue led for the power button will blink a couple of times and it will remain off.
However if you wait 5-10 minutes and turn it back on, it will repeat itself...

I have it hooked up to a radeon X1650 graphics controller as a secondary digital controller, and its hooked up by VGA cable.

I also have two other displays besides this one (one primary and extended that dont have any issues whatsoever.. they continue to function while the syncmaster 193p takes its time snoozing.... please help.

Dell Inspiron 1501 screen is blank


yeah look on the keyboard for something that looks like two monitors on the F-key row. It might even say LCD on it. Hold down the Fn key and push the F-key that has the pic.

You should have the other monitor hooked up because what you are changing is the display modes. To switch modes you hold down the Fn key and tap the F-key with the pic. Let me know if anything happens.
