Question about Dell Latitude D600 Notebook

My Dell C600 Screen shuts down after 10 minutes

Hello all.

I was hoping one of you learned ones could be of help. My wife has a Dell C600 which has developed a problem recently. After 10-15 minutes of use the screen goes blank. The computer is still running, but no picture. Once it is shut down for a while it starts up again. At first this happened occasionally, but the problem got progressively worse. I thought perhaps the fan was bad and it was overeating, so I went to ebay and got a replacement. Changed the fan and the problem remained. Thinking it was a video problem, I found a new mb on ebay for a good price, so I ordered it. I replaced the old mb with the new one, and...same problem! I hooked up an external monitor and it ran fine all night long, but one I change to laptop screen, down it goes. So before I drop-kick this laptop across the street, does anyone know what may be causing this?

    Is the video inverter something I can replace, or is it part on the screen?

    Thanks for the advice! I will order one and give it a go. I wish I had posted here before replacing the fan and the MB!

Most likely the video inverter.

    Yes, it's something you can replace, usually under the power button bar or the bottom part of the LCD bezel.

    Here's one right here.

I have an old Dell c600 and have just installed Windows 2000. My display is only taking up half the size of the total area - how can i expand it to fill the whole screen please?


Hi collywebs,

Go to this support site for the Dell C600 running Windows 2000. Not only can you download your video driver, but all drivers for your laptop, including all components. The video driver will be at the bottom of the page.
http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&cs=04&l=en&s=bsd&os=WW1&osl=en&SystemID=LAT_PNT_P3C_C600&catid=-1&impid=-1

If you have moved your operating system to XP/XP Pro, this same driver should work also. This driver should allow your display to fill the screen in the proper aspect ratio.

I hope this helps your situation. Thanks.

Regards, Bill

Did you try pressing the FN (function) key and F8?
F8 should have what looks like a computer or tv on it in blue.
Hope that works!

Cant get dell c600 svideo to stay on tv screen after initial startup


When you have it hooked up go into the screen resolution settings and make your tv a extra monitor. You can either have it the same as your laptop screen or a extra one. You have to enable the tv first thats probably why its shutting off. If i helped please leave me a rating. If you still need help leave me another comment.

It turns on and shows the BIOS screen? Can you access via F2? If it shuts down, check the RAM and RAM slots! Wrong CPU can also imitate a dead machine
