Question about Dell Computers & Internet

1 Answer

When I turn on my Dell XPS M1530 laptop, it shows a white screen that then fades slowly to gray and blue, instead of showing the bios. An external monitor shows the same. Anyone has had this issue and fixed it? Unlucky thing, happened a month after the 2-year extended warranty expired...

It seems you're having issues with the internal video card or motherboard.If you're not able to boot to bios it means your laptop didn't pass the POST (Power On Self Test). tried running the dell diagnostics.

here are the steps:

1. turn off the laptop.

2. while the laptop is off, press and hold down the FN key then press the power button. The dell diagnostics should come up. If nothing happens, you should call Dell to check more options.

Good luck,

Ryan

In that case, I would reinstall Windows. Something must corrupted in windows. Do you have your OEM Windows disk with you?

Check out the ribbon and other connectors that are powering/connected to your screen. It appears you may have an intermittent wiring situation.

Or the circuitry or keyboard switch that switches the video back and forth from screen to external output may be the culprit.

Try to see if there is a BIOS update for your laptop. The last version is A12. That sometimes will fix the problem. If not then it is most likely that the internal charger is built into the motherboard of the laptop is starting to fail. You would have to replace that part or most likely the entire motherboard.

Display problems with dell xps m1530 laptop


These models have known video card problems, so first thing connect an external monitor before booting - boot and see if the image on the external monitor stays on, if it's fine on the external monitor then the LCD panel might be defective, otherwise if you see blurred / distorted image on the external display it's the VGA card. which means you should contact warranty (if you still have) because the mainboard needs servicing / replacement.
