Question about Dell Inspiron 1525 Notebook

1 Answer

I Have a Dell Inspiron 1525 and tried to add a 21.5" Dell Monitor. The color on the monitor was purplish, and even talking with the service techs, couldn't resolve the problem. They sent a second monitor and that color was the same - both monitors did not show the same color as my laptop. When I tried to use the laptop with a PowerPoint projector at school, everything looked greenish. Could it be a bad VGA card?

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.

I have a Dell 1525 Inspiron laptop. All of a sudden it DOES boot up, (I can hear the HDD) the LCD display looks lit up, but NO DISPLAY either of boot up or windows. I hooked up an external monitor an

It sounds like your LCD might be bad. The fact that you can see the display on an external monitor tells you that your video card on the motherboard is ok. Is it booting all the way into windows so that you can see the desktop on the external monitor? Take a flash light and look real hard at the LCD on the laptop. Sometimes you might be able to faintly see the same thing you are seeing on the external monitor. If you can faintly see the icons or desktop that means your LCD Inverter is bad. If you see nothing, you screen probably needs to be replaced. I would find another repairman because you don't need to know anything about the bios to replace the lcd monitor. Look on ebay and type in "Dell Inspiron 1525 LCD Screen" . Set the options to "Buy It Now" so that you can only see the items you can buy and not bid on. Also set the Sort By to: "Price + Shipping Lowest First". The first thing you will see are LCD Inverters that can be purchased new for under $10, then you will see used LCD Screens from $50 - $75. A new LCD Screen for your system can be purchased as low as $86.69. Also notice that it shows that the screen will not only fit your dell inspiron 1525, but also the 1501, 1505, 1520 and 1526, so once again it sounds like you need to boot the repairman that says you need to know the bios number. If you need a good hones repairman try: They will fix it and ship it back to you for less than any quote you get including the shipping. I had a friend that got a quote from HP of almost $400 to replace the screen, they did it for $155

If you have an external monitor, try connecting the laptop to it, then toggle FN+F8 to project display from lalaptop to external monitor.

If the external monitor does not have a display aswell (totally blank) , then its a problem with the video card.

You can also run an LCD Bist test by turning off the system , then while the system is turned off press D + power , If you dont hear a beep but no display at all, then its an LCD problem.

Hope this helps

Thank you.

My dell inspiron 1525 screen is turning pink in color when ever i restart it this process is from booting itself not in operating system what might be the problem with it?

Hi Friend, In this case I would recommend you to please try and connect any external monitor to the system and check if you have the same issue with the external monitor also, so, that we can check if the issue is with the hardware or with the software.

Try this...Hook up an external monitor to the VGA port and hit the FN+F8 key. This should switch video over to a monitor.
