Hi, Please help! After I set up for multiple monitors on my Dell laptop Vostro 2510(laptop screen & Samsung Monitor 17 LCD) then reboot the system and I got black screen. How do I set up or the...


On the keyboard, there should be a button labeled "Fn" (Function) in the bottom left-hand corner. While the computer is on, hold that and press the "F4" key (or whichever F button has a picture that looks like two screens). Let go, wait a second, and the screen should set back up properly.

HOW TO DEACTIVATE TEH Fn KEY IN DELL LAPTOP


Hi names Rui, to turn Fn in you dell you need to:

1. Open your laptop and turn it on. Then locate the Fn key. It is located on the lower left side of the keyboard, next to the Ctrl key.

2. Press and release the Fn key. Now examine the keyboard carefully. You'll notice that many of the keys have icons or letters and numbers printed in blue upon them. These keys and functions are operated when the Fn key is enabled, as you've just done. Test it out by looking at the lower right side of the keyboard. You'll see two keys with small blue "sun" icons. These control the brightness of the screen. Press the lower one several times and you'll see the screen darken. Press the upper one. The screen brightens.

3. Press and release the Fn key again. Now try using the brightness keys. The screen brightness will not change. You've turned off the Fn key.

The Fn key (also known as the Function key) is a feature found on most laptop computers. The Fn key allows keys on a laptop computer's keyboard to serve more than one function, a clever way of increasing the utility of the keyboard when space is limited. Dell laptops make good use of the Fn key, and if you own a Dell laptop, you should be aware of where the key is and how to use it. So i hope this will help you.

My dell vostro 2510 won't power on, when i press power button to turn on the pc , the power light turn on for about 5 sec then it turn off itself,


Try this to see if can give us some codes with it's on board diagnostics. Hold down the function button of your laptop and then the power button while still holding down the Fn/Function button on the left side of the keyboard. See if this gives you either an error message on your screen or, flashing lights above your keyboard. Pay attention, write down what lights where lit up what ones flashed, etc. This is to diagnose if the LCD isn't working. Comment back if you get either the light code or the error code on the screen. IF nothing happens try holding the Fn/Function button on the left side of keyboard and holding the F4 button, see if that makes any lights flash above your keyboard.

I have a dell vostro 1000 laptop. when i turned it on, the screen is dark. i can still see the desktop but it's very dark. i tried the FN F8 and the FN up and down arrows. What next?


Battery in the laptop could be dead. It doesn't have enough charge to boot into windows possibly.

If your into windows then check the power settings. You can adjust the brightness if vista type power in the search. xp go to control panel power and maintenance.

My laptop is very dark and holding fn and the sun


The Back-light on your LCD screen is bad, your crystals aren't illuminating, so it is dark.... very dark.

You need a new LCD screen.

Sorry.

Dell Vostro 1400 LCD Showing Black Screen


If you can't see it with an external monitor - it generally means the system board needs replacement. I hope that you still have a Dell warranty. Good luck.

Dell Vostro 1400 LCD Showing Black Screen


If you connected the laptop to an external monitor via VGA and the display, then it is not "an NVIDIA GPU defect" .

The video chipset connected to the LCD screen is the same connected to the external VGA port, and is working fine since picture is OK on monitor.

More likely the problem is either LCD ribbon cable, or LCD display, the fact that the backlight is working means that the inverter is also working.
