Question about Dell Inspiron E1705 Notebook

1 Answer

When I turn my laptop off or I am done using it, I close the lid/screen. The last time I used my laptop, the screen would not come on. It was a black screen, but I could very faintly see the windows startup screen. I have a Dell Inspiron E1705.

It sounds like it did not properly go into stand by or hibernate. Try holding down the power button for about 5 or 6 seconds until you hear it power off. Then wait a few seconds and then turn it back on.

Has a Toshiba Tecra 9000 won't power up. Power light on front is blanking which appears to be a code 3-3-2


The problem is cause due to one of the following: the backlight or the display, check your monitor brightness settings. Sometimes your brightness may accidentally have been all the way turned down, resulting in a blank/dark screen. The monitor controls are on the keyboard, directly above the numeric keys.
Look closely at your laptop's screen if the steps do not restore power to it and if it remains blank. Can you see a faint image on the screen? If so, the backlight may be off due to the LCD "lid close" detector malfunctioning. This malfunction likely happened due to the lid close switch being stuck in the "closed" position even though the lid is open. The switch is located beside the LCD's screen hinges, and tapping the switch a few times should unstick it.
Use an S-Video cable and plug your laptop up to an external monitor, such as your television set. With the laptop and TV hooked up, turn both on and see if your computer's desktop is displayed on the TV. You can also use a fifteen ( 15 )pin monitor desktop monitor by connecting it to the blue fifteen ( 15 ) connector at the side of the laptop if you cannot see anything on screen it is the display problem. If it is, your laptop's display needs to be replaced. If not, your motherboard and/or video subsystem may need to be completely removed and replaced.

I have an Aspire 6930. The screen has become damaged when something fell on it during an airline flight. The lap Top works OK when hooked up to an external screen, Is there any way to remove the damaged...


Hi,

It is not that much practically easy to remove the damaged screen including the lid. Instead, you can get an external mouse and keyboard, connect it your laptop and can use them while keeping your laptop lid closed. For this you need to hook up your external display and in the control panel -> power options, by default the settings will be there to put your computer into sleep mode when the lid is closed. You have to change this option such that when lid is closed nothing should be done.

I hope the provided solution is useful to you.
Thanks

My dell C610 Screen does not come back on when i reopen the lid. I turn the computer on use it then close the lid for about a min then reopen it and the screen just stays off but the computer itself is...


Known issue. The windows default settings for power saving mode tell the computer to switch it off (sleep) when the lid is closed. The sleep mode doesn't turn completely the computer, just the visualization devices (mainly screen, also some other components not required for the computer).
What I would advise you to do after restarting the computer (press on the power button for a very long time, until you cannot hear it working), is to change the power settings.
go to control panel, choose "power options", then see if you have "choose what closing the lid does". If it's not there (not all laptops show this option), choose "change when the computer sleeps", then change " put the computer to sleep" to "never".

That should do it. if you have any questions feel free to ask me.

Signal is not compatible with this input when i connect my laptop


If the screen resolution on your laptop is to high or not supported by the TV, that is the usual error message.  I'm not sure what video output you are using but if it's the common S-video output, high resolutions will not be supported through it so maybe try a lower resolution and work your way up until you get the message again.  Then you will know the threshold.

Dell latitude Cpi LCD screen Backlighting?


What do you mean exactly?

To increase or decrease the backlight brightness use Fn-key(next to left Ctrl-key) with up and down arrows.

There is not some key-combination to turn off the screen, you can make your computer turn it off after some time (if you're using XP this can be done in control panel->Power options), or just close the lid :)

No visual display


Function F7 will enable the external video monitor connection and will toggle between the screen, the screen plus external monitor, and the external monitor only. Try hitting function F7 and see if that helps. Also there is a small switch that is activated when you close hte lid to turn off the display when the lid is closed. make sure that this little switch is not stuck.

Compaq presario v2000 monitor is having horizontal purple lines that flicker.


Try reloading the drivers, delete the device in device manager and reboot. It should then pick up the drivers and reload them, if that does not work I would suspect the screen is on its way out (flickering normally means the screen or its connection is bad)
