My dell inspiron 1318 has the screen flicker and go blank within 30-60 seconds after starting up. I know the computer is running fine, but I just can't see anything. I am guessing this is a driver or video card problem, but I don't know what to do about it...please help!

Have you gone to the dell on line support

try to reinstall the application, media , found on the icon or your cd recovery set --

there should be an icon on the bottom right of your screen - see if you can reach tech support -- you will need to give them your service tag # located on back of your laptop

i hope this helps, please leave me positive feedback

I have a dell inspiron lap top with window's vista. There is a problem with it. Even when I turn it on with safe mode it goes to the log in screen, then says welcome, and then it goes to a black screen...


Usually what happens with my Dell Inspiron desktop, even on safe mode it goes to the logon screen. I have never experienced that with my Dell Inspiron 1318. When you log in and it shows you the black screen, try pressing the function buttons. Try F8 or F12. You should be able to start the computer in Safe Mode. If possible, enter Safe Mode with Networking so that you are able to search the web. If you don't mind me asking, why is it that you need safe mode? Is it a virus?

You can use any kind of writable DVD the difference is that DVD-R, are more secure and data is better protected so you have a Combo or DVD+RW Drive 8X CD/DVD Burner (Dual Layer DVD+/-R Drive) that allows you to use a double layer DVD+ R or CD + R

Right hand hinge is broke dell inspiron 1318


The only people who have the hinge is Dell themselves. I've checked all over. The only parts available are the Center Console Cover & The Back Cover. If the hinge itself is broken, then you will have to send it to DELL. They'll tell you that the whole screen needs to be fixed- just to hike up the price of repair. If you want, you can buy the back cover, which for the most part, will cover the exposed wires on the hinge, but the front of the hinge will still be exposed. What I would love to find is a metal hinge for the DELL Inspiron 1318, like that found in the Dell Studio XPS version. The plastic hinges only guarantee that we will remain loyal customers. Sorry if this didn't help much.

Dell Inspiron 1318 with Vista Home Premium and when I try to log in I am asked for a password when I didn't set one.


Vista will always prompt you for a password. If you didn't set one, then it's still blank.

Monitor goes blank


Try restarting the computer in Safe Mode and then check. In case it flickers in Safe Mode too, then the LCD screen might be damaged and you might need to replace it.
