Justinbur167 it's a WXGA screen. I don't know if yours is Glossy, or a Matte finish.

This is one example,

http://www.laptopscreen1.com/ls1-froogle.shtml?brand=Dell&family=Inspiron&screen=1525&size=15.4&res=WXGA&backlight=1+CCFL

Here is another example,

http://www.laptopscreen.com/English/model/Dell/INSPIRON~1525/

You'll note that offerings list With Inverter, and Without, also Glossy, or Matte finish.

[An LCD screen cannot produce enough light by itself. A Backlight is used to provide the additional needed light source.

A Backlight is a CCFL.
Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp.
Similar to Fluorescent lighting used in homes, and businesses, but on a Much smaller scale.

An Inverter is used to invert power from the laptop, for the LCD screen, and the Backlight ]

This is the Service Manual for the Inspiron 1525 Notebook PC, (Free),

Clicking on Display at the bottom of the first column, will provide information in replacing the LCD screen.

    Thanks again

    Gloss or matte does not matter other than looks right?

    Yes. The finish is mostly a personal preference.

    You're very kind Justin, thank you for the rating, and kind words!
    [Note* As stated remove ALL power before replacing the LCD screen. Suggest you use a multi-compartment container for the screws you remove. Many look to be alike, but are NOT. If a multi-compartment container is not available, you can use a clean egg container, and mark each egg holder for the are the screws come out of ] joecoolvette

    Error: "and mark each egg holder for the are the screws come out of ] ", should state, "and mark each egg holder for the AREA the screws come out of ]"

How to make the picture from laptop to projector the right size.


I would suggest it's probably a screen resolution an older laptop VGA output was probably 800x600. The projector will also have a recommended and maximum resolution. The newer laptop will have a much higher resolution. You will need to adjust the laptop's video resolution to the optimum projector resolution

Streak in LCD Screen


Judith,

I'm going to state in my own words, as to what I think you have stated, originally; (Please bear with me as this may be clumsy)

" I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 Notebook PC.
This laptop has problems with the Hinges, and Base Cover.

The Base Cover area where the Hinges, and their respective screws go, is beyond repair. To properly repair it, I would need to purchase a Base Cover, Hinges, Hinge Brackets, and a 'Bezel'."

At this stage I am a little unclear,
" I think I would have to buy the entire bottom of the case,
{ Base Cover. Got it }, and replace the bezel that had pieces break off at the hinges too,....."

Hmmm.....Bezel....
Bezel that is close to the Hinges,..........

1) The Display Bezel that is in Front of the LCD screen? Thin plastic frame that resembles a picture frame? Bottom part has Hinge Covers formed in it?

2) Palm Rest Cover?
The cover that covers the top of the Body, of the laptop?

The major portion is below the Keyboard towards you. The rest of the Palm Rest Cover, is two rectangular pieces on each side of the Keyboard.

One of these two pieces broke? (Connector piece?)

3) Center Control Cover?
Is above the Keyboard, and below the Display Assembly.
Has the Power on button in it, for one.

To go on;

You purchased the same model on Ebay?

Same exact model number? Look on the bottom of the laptop.

Reasoning?
Primer:

An LCD screen cannot produce light by itself. It needs an additional light source.
A Backlight is the additional light source.

A Backlight (Present technology), can be a CCFL, or a series of LED lights.
The Dell Inspiron 1525 series used a CCFL.

Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp.
Similar to Fluorescent lighting used in homes, and businesses, but on a MUCH smaller scale.

(Approximately 2mm Thick, by almost the height of the LCD screen, Long.
2mm is a little larger than 1/16th of an Inch. { .0787 )

A screen Inverter is used to convert the power (Electricity) from the laptop, for the LCD screen, and the Backlight.

Point?
The screen Inverter, and the LCD screen, are a MATCHED unit.

Looking at the back of both LCD screens, what is the Dell part number/s, or LCD manufacturer model number/s?

[ One LG example from an article on InsideMyLaptop,

http://www.insidemylaptop.com/replace-lcd-screen-inverter-dell-inspiron-1525-laptop/

Scroll all the way down to Step 14. Read under the first photo, and view the second photo ]

Want to see if the LCD screen you are using, matches the Inverter in the laptop.

Dell, just like all laptop manufacturers, use different manufacturers of LCD screens. (LG, Sharp, Hitachi, etc)
May go with one for a few years, then off to a different one. (Or one's)
May change when a particular laptop model comes out.

The LCD screens may be slightly different models. In turn they would use different screen Inverters.
This = No.

4) Translucent 'streak' going from bottom left corner, to upper right corner.

That translates to;

A) Video Cable damage (Dell = Display Cable)
B) LCD screen damage
C) Bad graphics chipset

Have you used an external monitor to diagnose? A VGA monitor?
If so disregard the following;

A) Laptop OFF, monitor OFF. Connect a VGA monitor to the laptop.
You can use a CRT monitor (Looks like a small TV), or a flat LCD screen monitor that has a VGA cable attached.

Example of a VGA Cable, and VGA port, (Connector),

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_connector

Connect to the left side of the laptop.

B) Turn the monitor on. If a CRT type allow it to warm up.
Turn the laptop on.
By default the display should show on the external VGA monitor.
If not:

Hold the Fn key down, simultaneously tap once on the F8 key.
Still nothing showing on external monitor?

You have at least three display options;
1) Internal monitor of laptop ONLY
2) Internal monitor of laptop AND external VGA monitor
3) External VGA monitor ONLY.

Try again.

If the display is the same on the external VGA monitor, you have a bad graphics chipset. (G.P.U.)

If Not, the problem lies in the Display Cable, or screen Inverter, or LCD screen.

As you have seen the Display Cable connects to the motherboard, then routes up under the Left Hinge, and up into the Display Assembly.

The Display Cable can be damaged from normal use, over time.
Now add to it that you have had extensive Hinge problems.

If the sheath of the cable shows any visible damage, the tiny wires inside stand a chance of being damaged, also. (Stretched/Broken)

I would suggest testing the Display Cable. Perform a continuity test with a multimeter, for each wire in the Display Cable.

[ An economical multimeter can be purchased for around $8 to $12.
Available in a multitude of stores. An auto parts store is but one example.
Or perhaps you know someone who has a multimeter. Analog or digital is fine]

C) Did you reconnect the Wireless Antenna Cables correctly?
Reaching here but inquiring minds want to know.

[ The above is from - Dell Support > Inspiron 1525/1526 Service Manual,

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/ins1525/en/SM/index.htm

]

D) Would like to know what you did to follow Anti-Static Precautions?


I'm not following on the points of;

1) You installed what you considered to be a working LCD screen, into a laptop you bought off of Ebay; and the display stopped working on the Ebay laptop?

Or;

2) Or is your statement, that after receiving the Ebay laptop, your original laptop would no longer show graphics on it's display?

IMHO I would use the case parts of the Ebay laptop, and rebuild your original laptop.

Awaiting corrections, and possible questions.

Regards,
joecoolvette

Try connecting an external monitor to your laptop via the 15 pin VGA connector located on the left side of the laptop.If the laptop display is normal on the external monitor then most likely your LCD (liquid crystal display) panel is damaged and needs to be replaced. The spider web effect is due to cracked display panel.

Your laptop's video circuit is integrated into the system board (motherboard). There is no VGA card. Try using a different VGA cable, if no go, then your motherboard has a problem.

Hi,

You'll need to locate the VGA port on your Laptop to your monitor. The VGA port looks like ...
5cfe79e.jpg

You should have a VGA cable that came with your monitor?

When you have connected the two together and turned on your Laptop the monitor should autosync and show the display. If this does not happen predd Fn+8 (the function key for external monitor support - should show a screen and a laptop on the key)

The Laptop may of course be damaged and not booting. Do you hear any disk booting? ... are the normal leds for keyboard etc lit?

Hope this helps, if so please leave feedback. If not, please let me know and I'll try and help some more!

Vista is not letting things go away


It's sounds like it may be an issue with the screen refresh rate. From your desktop right click and select properties. Then select the display tab. From there, choose the option to reset to default settings.
