Mutiple screens after startup

After I start up my dell inspiron 6000 laptop I get my desktop x 4 ( in 4 small identical screens)

  • Lisa Musarra Jul 29, 2007

    Thank you I am still having the same problem, as I never have time to speak to dell about it I have my laptop hooked to an external monitor as my second screen and I can drag the windows that are too small to see over there and they are full size! So you could do that for the time being but it is still not a solution!

This is a common problem for some motherboards. Its easely fix by a professional, if you have no experience on laptops hardware dont try it.

You justa have to open de laptope case and find the GPU and CPU chips. Then see were is thermal mass, then wipe it clean and apply fresh mass.

That solves the problem. its related to overheat, bad manufacture of the board.

Help this doesn't solve the problem, it just changes the wallpaper on the desktop of the 4 screens. Someone said maybe I have something wrong with my video card?? Sometimes when I restart a couple of times it will restart normally but now I cannot get one screen. I have four identical squares of whatever I am running on my screen, separated vertically by a black band about 2" wide.

From your description it sounds like you've got an image set as your desktop background and it set to "tile" mode. If this is the case you can change it as follows: -Click on Start, settings, control panel -Double left click on Display. -Click on the Desktop tab -If you want to remove the background image just highlight None from the list of backgrounds. If you just want to display one, small image click on pull down arrow to the left of the Position field (bottom right hand section) and select Center. Use Stretch to make the picture fill the entire field. If this solves your issue please don't forget to rate the posting, otherwise give us some additional details as to the exact nature of your issue.

Probably it has some virus that slows down the booting process.Besides that you might have many startup programs,which you can un-install if you don't need at startup.Also, cleaning your disks will be a good idea.These tips might help solve the sluggish attitude!

My Dell Inspiron 6000 turns on but then it says there is a problem with it and goes to a blue screen.

Dell inspiron 6000 screen splitting

Hi,
This is a generic problem in most of Dell Laptops ( mostly inspiron ). It is caused due to a fatal fault or breakage in the Hinge Assembly. You need a new Hinge Assembly. Is it splitting more on decreasing the angle of the monitor. If yes, Hinge assembly is the only culprit. If you are under Warrenty then Dell will be liable for it and replace it free. If not under Warrenty, I approx. costs 300$. Thank you Sir, Have a nice day.

Image on the screen is very faint

It sounds like yout lcd inverter is blown. You can usually get a new one and replace it yourself. I would look on ebay. Its just a small computer chip that fits inside of the monitor housing.

Screensaver on my Dell Inspiron 6000 does not work

Several things can interfere with the operation of a screen saver. Usually it is a process of elimintaion as to what is preventing it from working.
Start, RUN, MSCONFIG <enter> will open the system configuration utility. Disable the startup group, reboot, see if issue still occurs.
If screen saver then works, you can go back and add items to the startup group until you ID the item causing the issue.
If disabling startup has no effect, go to the services tab of MSCONFIG, check HIDE ALL Microsoft services, then disable the remaining ones and follow the same process
