What is the problem? Open Control Panel, Power settings, Advanced power settings, set to High Preformance, Set Sleep and Hibernate to Never , Set Lid close to Shut Down, adjust setting to your preference, Always shut down your Laptop, unplug when not in use. Remove battery if you use on AC most of the time, your laptop will last longer and a boot everyday resets the computer.

    Power settings were already set correctly such that closing the lid would have no effect. To be clear, the laptop is DYING occassionally when the lid closes, not sleeping/hibernating/shutdown. I'm much more suspectful of a hardware issue rather than Windows.

I have a dell e5420 on booting it brings a white screen display but when connected to an external monitor it display properly what can i do cheers


Hi omovik,

Good observation on the external monitor piece. Check if the notebook display works fine when you enter BIOS (F2 during start-up) or during diagnostics (Fn+Power). If the issue persists on these steps then it's a faulty LCD. Do keep me updated on the status.

Thanks and Regards.
Kiran Kumar.

Dell e5420 wont start up at all


Make sure no accessories are plugged into your laptop. First remove the battery and try a bootup. If does not bootup, remove the hard drive if you can and try again. If still no full boot, you can try the DVD drive and then the memory. Replace what you have found to be the problem. If none solves the bootup problem, it is either the power supply itself or a mainboard problem, which would required service from an authorized service center from Dell. Verify the center with Dell. The parts I have indicated to try are normally easily removed from the bottom of the laptop, by removing a few small screws.
