Black screen delld600


Several things can cause your Dell Latittude D600 laptop's LCD screen to stop working.

Two of the most common causes relate directly to the inverter board and the backlight lamp.


The inverter board is a thin circuit board placed inside the LCD panel.

It's main function is to transfer power from the motherboard to the backlight bulb inside the LCD screen.


If the inverter board goes bad or the backlight lamp burns out, the screen will appear dim or eventually go completely black.


Turn off the laptop, unplug the power cable, close the LCD panel and place the laptop face down.

Remove the battery pack from its compartment on the bottom of the computer.


Flip the laptop back over and reopen the display panel all the way until it is in a 180-degree position.

Insert a flat head screwdriver into the right side of the keyboard bezel.


This is the plastic strip situated above the top row of keyboard keys. Carefully pry the bezel from the laptop.

Remove the two Phillips screws located above the top row of keyboard keys.


Grasp the top edge of the keyboard, tilt it upward and lay the keyboard face down on the palm rest area.

Unplug the keyboard's ribbon cable from the motherboard connector.


Carefully remove the entire keyboard from the laptop.

Disconnect the video and speaker cables extending from either side of the LCD panel to the motherboard.


Loosen the Phillips head screws on each LCD panel hinge.

Carefully lift the entire LCD panel off the laptop's base.


Relocate the panel to a flat work surface, and place the panel so the screen is facing upward.

Use a thin, flat head screwdriver to pry the rubber screw covers from the LCD panel's front plastic cover.


Remove the Phillips head screws revealed by the rubber covers.

Carefully remove the front plastic cover from the display panel.


Locate the inverter board situated below the LCD screen, inside the bottom edge of the display panel.

Disconnect the two cables from each end of the inverter.


Remove the two Phillips head screws fastening the inverter to the display panel.

Carefully lift the inverter board out of the display panel, and dispose of it.


Repeat this procedure in reverse to install the new inverter board, and reassemble the laptop.


Hope this helps

Middle keys not working


Did you spill a liquid on the keyboard? If not it might be the keyboard cable needs to be reseated or the keyboard is going bad. To reseat the keyboard, close the lid and turn the keyboard over. Remove the screws from the bottom of the keyboard. Some screws might have the keyboard icon on them which means they secure the keyboard. Remove the battery and most times there will be screws inside the battery case and some might have the icon of a keyboard. After you remove the screws from the bottom, turn the laptop back over and open the lid. Use a small flat head screwdriver to pry on end of the strip that is above the top of the keyboard, then the other end (usually the power button is on this strip). Be careful because this strip might have a cable under it. Once your remove the strip there might be screws that are holding the keyboard if so remove them. Now you can lift the keyboard up, but be careful because there is a cable under it. This is the cable that you want to release from the motherboard and then put it back. Usually this cable is secured by a little piece that you can flip up to remove the cable and push it back down once you put the cable back in.

Advent t9307 power switch not working


Your laptop's power button sits directly on top of a device called a power button board. This is a small circuit board where all power and control buttons interface with your laptop's motherboard. The repetitive use of the power and control buttons can damage the power button board. Repairing your power button means removing and replacing the power button board, which requires partial disassembly of your laptop.

1.Power down your laptop. Unplug the AC power adapter and all external devices from the computer. Close the laptop's LCD panel and place the laptop face down. Rotate the laptop so the front opening edge is facing you. Remove the battery pack from its compartment on the laptop's bottom side.

2.Flip the laptop over, and pull open the display panel as far as possible. Use a thin, flat-head screwdriver to pry the keyboard cover from the laptop. The keyboard cover is the plastic piece situated above the keyboard assembly that houses the power button board.

3.Lift the keyboard cover out of the laptop slightly, and disconnect the cables extending from the power button board to the motherboard. Remove the keyboard cover from the laptop.

4.Place the keyboard cover face down on a flat surface. Remove the Phillips-head screws fastening the power button board to the cover, and remove it. If your speakers are situated inside the keyboard cover, disconnect the speaker cables from the power button board before removing it.

5.Place the new power button board inside the keyboard cover. Align the screw holes on the button board with the holes on the keyboard cover. Replace the Phillips-head screws fastening the button board to the keyboard cover. Reconnect the speaker cables to the button board, if necessary.

6.Reconnect the power button board's main cable to the motherboard. Place the keyboard cover back inside the slot above the keyboard assembly. Press down on the cover until it snaps into place. Replace the battery pack and reconnect all cables.

4 beeps but won't come on


4 beeps of equal lenght suggest that system timer is not working, you need to change cmos battery on your laptop. If you are game, that is how you change CMOS battery on your laptop:

1. Switch off computer, remove power cord and battery, turn computer "proper" side up, open and press power button to discharge
2. Open display in full (180 degree), there is small indent on hinge cover, close to hinge on right and left side, slide in little flat (screwdriver will do) and lift right side up, slide cover towards left and remove it, do not lift on both sides simultaneously!
3. Remove two small screws on the top of keyboard, lift keyboard slightly up and towards you, be aware that keys and tabs on keyboard are fragile and difficult to replace! Lift keyboard connector and slide the cable out. it is not really necessary to remove keyboard, but it easy to replace without keyboard being in the way.
4. Find coin battery, disconnect cable from socket by pulling it gently towards the battery. Remove cable from guides and battery from it's seat
5. Replace battery with exact same type, put it back into it's seat, guide wire through and connect it back to the board.
6. Re-connect keyboard cable, place front keyboard tabs into palm rest and screw back two back holding screws
7. slide in left side of hinge cover into place, press from left to right till it click in place.
8. Re-install battery and power cord, switch on computer, re-programe BIOS ito previous state.

This should solve your CMOS batery problem. Of course you can send your laptop to the technician but that will be no fun at all... ;-)

C500 Laptop won't come on power button just flashes


Have you tried attaching an external monitor when the LCD screen is disconnected from the motherboard? this connector is located under the keyboard strip – a piece of plastic just above the keyboard.
If it works, this way, then the video cable isn’t seated properly in the connector on the back of the screen. Plugging the video cable back in should fix the problem.
I don’t know how comfortable you are with taking apart laptops but I think that this information could be useful for you.

Power button and speakers quit working


You need to remove the screws on the under side along the back. (anything that looks like it may reach through to the power bar). Then gently with a plastic pry bar pry up on the power bar starting around where it covers the hinges and work your way around. Be careful cause they do crack. Also the power button cable is very short.

There are TONS of screws in laptops, mainly hidden.  I just took apart a laptop today, and it took me a couple of hours to get the screws out.  There are so many screws!  They are usually under the panels in the back as well.  Here is a link for your computer model Acer Aspire 5100 http://www.insidemylaptop.com/taking-apart-acer-aspire-5100-laptop/
