My dell latitude d630 will power on when I push the button, but nothing happens. The screen illuminates a bit and that's it. What can be the problem?
what happens when you try to connect to an external monitor? you may have a bad back light power inverter. how old are your batteries? in some cases if the batter pack isn't holding a charge then it may put a load on the power supply.
if you connect an external monitor and it stays on then it is a bad back light inverter. if it does the same thing then you may have a power supply problem. i forgot to ask if the laptop has been dropped or fell off a table, chair, bed, or desk? how is the power plug that plugs into the laptop? you also may have bad power jack!
3 things that may be bad or defective:
1) power jack
2) inverter board (i'm thinking this your problem)
3) batteries or internal power supply
items 1 and 2 can be fixed, but if it is a battery(s) or bad internal power supply. replacement batteries are about $50 and up, replacement laptop mother board it may be cheaper to buy a new/used laptop. however, you would want to save your data on this laptop if you can or someone do it for you.
i have worked on Dell computers for 10 + years out of my own repair and custom shop.
oops almost forgot with the new hd tv's there is a "PC Input" on the back where you can connect your computer or laptop to!! so if the lcd screen doesn't work and you cannot afford a replacement back light inverter board($120) then spend $15 or less for a male plug to connect your laptop to your lcd hdtv .
but doing this you will loose portability unless replace the inverter board!
