Dell Inspiron 6000 Laptop LCD Problem

Bottom 1/3 of laptop screen shows black line with everything below the line ghosted out, and I cant access that part of the screen without pushing on the left hand side of the lcd from the back and holding it until the screen comes back into view. Sometime this fix works for a couple of hours, sometimes minutes.

Also if pushing on the left side of the screen does not work than standing the laptop on its left side and applying pressure will bring the bottom third of the screen into view.

Help!!!!

    I have a similar problem. The top 1/3 of the screen shows perfectly. The bottom 2/3 of the screen is messed up. Looks like horizontal lines and can't see anything behind the lines. Installed new cable. No fix. Ran diagnostics. Device: Graphics. Test: Graphics Test. Status: Error Detected! Any suggestions?

This is most likely going to be a loose connection. You will need to take the the plastic bezel that surrounds the screen off, the screws are hidden under the small rubber bumpers. Then take the screen loose, you will see he four screws holding the screen at the sides. Tilt the screen forward and you will see the connection on the back. Make sure this connection is seated properly, you may need to apply some new tape on it if it has any. Then check any other connections while you're there. If the problem persists, then the cable may need replacing.

The bottom third of my screen is black w/ fine lines of colors that coincide with the current screen


Dell Inspiron 6000 are notorious for developing screen faults. Dell won't do anything about it unless under warranty. Have the screen replaced by a repair shop unless you feel confident enough to do it yourself.

Dell Inspiron 6000 to TV


On a dell laptop, the key combo FN  F8 cycles through the display options. Laptop screen, External screen, Laptop and External screen at the same time.  Try pressing the FN F8 key to get the video to display on both laptop and lcd and the same time.  If that doesn't work you can also change the settings on what the laptop does when the lid is closed.  Check the power settings in the control panel.

Lcd screen connection


You can try to reseat the LCD video connector on the motherboard. Follow these steps:
1) Remove the AC power and Battery.
2) Open the LCD display all the way flat.
3) Pry up on the notch on the right side of the keyboard bezel. This is the plastic cover that has the power button on it.
4) Unplug the LCD cable and reseat it into the connector. This is the round black cable that has a little ground screw.
If this doesn’t resolve your problem then you probably need a new LCD display panel. To replace the LCD panel you have to remove the LCD section from the laptop and disassemble the LCD plastics to get to the panel.

You can also pick up the batteries less expensive than most computer places at batteries plus. And yes it sounds as though it is the batteries charge is getting low, especially if it runs fine when the battery is out and you have it plugged in.

Dell Inspiron 6000 monitor display problem


Well it is most likely a issue with the Video driver as you are able to boot to the safe mode.I would suggest going back to the safe mode and deleting the present driver for the video from the device manager.before you restart the system just download the latest version from the support.dell.com so that you can reinstall it.Also check in the graphic properties which screen is set to be the defuat.Incase still not working i would suggest reinstalling the operating system before replacing any hardware.
