Question about Dell Inspiron 8500 Notebook

Dell display problem

Hello,
I have a problem with my display on my Dell inspiron 8500.
Since I connected it with a beamer the display it totally black.
I plugged it to a external monitor and that worked.
I assume that the beamer some how uninstalled the drivers, but the computer won't find any, even if I have downloaded new ones.
Thankful for help

Dell inspiron 8500 laptop screen goes white


hello, when the screen changes colors or stays in one color it is mostly cause of a video card problem. Does this happens only when overheated, then maybe you can blow the cpu-video card heatsink and use a base with a fan to avoid overheating. If the screen is white all the time then maybe only a 2nd monitor will help understand if this is a problem of the video card or the screen.

the problem is with the gpu inside , i suspect that overheating or continual use of the laptop for long periods has meant that the solder oints holding the gpu to the circuitboard have started to short. Chances of repairing the motherboard are slim and a replacement will be needed.

Display


the moment you power on your system strat tapping F2 key
you will get a system setup screen if you dont get it as suggested before connect an extrnel monitor then press and hold Fn key and while holding it down press F8 it will toggle the display
if you get a video on external monitor LCD needs to be replaced
if you don't then its either systemboard(if video card is integrated)
or the video card
provide me your system's service tag located at the bottom pannel of your system, turn it upside down you will find a bar coded sticker which has a 7 digit alphanumeric number
i will be able to provide the best resolution

Sounds like the incorrect RAM (SUPPORTS PC2100 AND PC2700 DDR SDRAM SODIMMs) for that laptop. Also try re-seating the RAM in the socket and that is not installed backwards (hard to do , but I've seen it)
