Dell Latitude C800

My C800 will boot up and go to the main desktop but then after a couple minutes, of not doing anything, the screen will turn off. If I look really closely then I can barely see the desktop. What can I do to have the screen work because obviously the computer is running??

Thanks,
Jordan

Does this happen with both the power plugged and running on battery?
Check the power modes, because the screen intensity is one of the power saving settings.

No boot sector on hard disk Dell C800


It sounds like you bought the computer without an operating system, if you just bought it you need to install an OS (Windows or linux).

You might be able to get recovery discs from Dell if this sytem is entitled to a windows install. Does it have a Windows OEM sticker on the bottom?

In short, You need to install an Operating System.

You can submit a form to request replacement CDs at https://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/dellcare/en/backupcd_form

You may need to do a ownership transfer with Dell before they will send this there is a form for this as well or you could call customer care http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/change_order/tag_transfer?~ck=ln&c=us&cs=19&l=en&lnki=0&s=dhs

Note forms are all for US customers

It turns on and shows the BIOS screen? Can you access via F2? If it shuts down, check the RAM and RAM slots! Wrong CPU can also imitate a dead machine

C800


I am assuming that you disabled any screen saver and checked the power settings, right?

What happens if you boot in Safe Mode (F8 on startup). A lot of devices and drivers are not loaded, so you can check if the same happens then. If not, that's a good point to start from.

Otherwise I am fearing it might be a technical (hardware) problem :(
