Question about Dell Inspiron 700M Notebook
I accidentally dropped my 700M on the floor. At first it was working and then a piece of my screen starting greying out. After about a week about 3/4s of the screen was greyed out where I could not use it. The screen is not cracked, but there is obviously a component in the lcd (ink?) that is busted which is causing a blob of different colors to appear and then it goes grey. Do I have to replace the entire monitor which is about $500 or can I replace a component? It seems as if there must be an alternative measure that I can take.
Thanks Fixya Experts,
I think along the lines like you. $500 dollars is a good chuck of money and alternatives would be my first choice. My suggestion is to check both ends of the cable harness the plugs into the screen and to the mother board. Make sure both ends are inserted properly.
Next thing is to test - power up the laptop and see if that made a difference. If not, it may be the screen or the motherboard. So test further by pluging in an external monitor to check to see you get a good picture/image. If so, then that means you need to replace the laptop screen. If you dont get a good picture/image, than that means your motherboard needs replacing.
Hope that helps and good luck.
