I have a inspiron 1521 that i have been having problems with. It's an older laptop.
When i turn on the power, nothing is displayed on the screen. When i hold fn+power I get 2 flashing lights and one solid. The num lock and cap lock flash. I don't really know what this means. I have also done a BIST and the laptop seems to pass this just fine. (Different colors flash on the screen). I have tried removing ram 1 at a time but it always blinks the same lights. Could this be a problem with the motherboard?
My son has a Dell Inspiron 1545 ... The problem with its is, that it receives power into the unit but nothing is displayed onto the screen and therefore, nothing shows or happens. I know that the unit is receiving power due to the fact that I can open the Disk Drive. I have attempted the flea start without any success.
I have dell inspiron N5050 laptop and it is under warranty. Recently i formatted it to upgrade my system from 32 bit os to 64 bit os. After formatting, I am not able to access my desktop and a blue screen is displayed that says:
"A problem has been detected and windows has been shutdown to prevent damage to your computer.
If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer.
If this screen appears again, follow these steps:
The BIOS in this system is not fully ACPI complaint, Please contact your system vender for an update BIOS.

I have an issue when using the HDMI port.With the Yoga 3 in Laptop mode, when I plug in the HDMI port, the screen flips 180 degrees and then flips back when I unplug it.It also flips back correctly when I close the lid.Is there a setting that I need to change to prevent this from happening?
Recently, it can't power on. Assuming that it was a static-flea problem, having happened before, I did the "remove the battery & AC power, holding down the power button for 30 secs" solution countless of times. Yet, to my dismay, it still couldn't power on.
I did notice, however, that each time the battery and the ac power were in and the socket power on, the battery indicator and the ac power cord were both lit. With this, I am certain that the AC power cord is working, and probably the battery is as well. I have also tried directly relaying the ac power to the laptop without the battery attached but failed.
I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 with an HDMI port. While the port was hooked to my AV receiver, I hit a few buttons on the receiver and somehow disabled the HDMI port on the Dell.
I cannot figure out how to reactivate the HDMI port. I know this is what happened--cable, receiver, balance of computer is all fine. Somehow, the received "talked" to the Dell and turned off or disabled the HDMI port or its driver, is my best guess.
Anyone else's HDMI port break on them? I barely used it.. I've had the XPS M1530 since late March/early April but when I tried to hook up my surround sound today it did not work. I tried using different cables, different port on the receiver, and tried directly with my HDTV but my computer does nothing. I updated the audio drivers and flashed the bios, but no luck. Pretty sure HDMI port broke. What a piece of garbage.
After my lid randomly cracking when I closed it less than a month ago and now this.. I can see how this computer will definitely break by the time my 3 yr warranty ends. Good job, Dell. Could they even replace the HDMI port on the machine or would they have to put in an entire new motherboard?
I just ordered an M4400 from the outlet, and in the Accessories page during the order there was no option to buy a DisplayPort to XXX Adapter for $15 like there is when you are buying a new one...
I figured it wouldn't be a big deal to find one after the fact, but now that I'm looking the only DisplayPort to HDMI Adapter Dell has to order is $59.99 !! Any ideas one where to get one closer to $15?
I have heard numerous comments stating that individuals are only getting Stereo Sound from their HDMI port but then other comments explaining that yes, indeed, it supports Dolby Digital....5.1 Audio etc.
The HDMI port is 1.2 which allows for a PCM 8 audio stream signal.
I have a receiver that allows for internal 7.1/5.1 Audio streams (all of the latest codecs can be decoded and processed) with HDMI output/input connections.
Will I be able to send a 5.1 PCM Audio stream to my AV Receiver and thereby utilizing the full range of audio?
When i bought N7110 when i pressed the fn + sound up/down button(f11/f12) a little box would come up showing me what my current sound level is and dissapear after 3 secs or so. But doesn't happen anymore. The buttons still change the sound but the box doesn't show up. This happens with all of the fn functions like f2(wireless settings), mute button, f4 f5 (brightness), f3(touchpad on off). They all work but they dont show up. So if i want to close bluetooth i need to do it blindly by pressing f2 + fn a few times to finally get it.
Bought a 5920G yesterday, when I plug the hdmi cable into the HDMI out port on my laptop into my HDTV it simply makes my laptop screen go blank and the tv (set to HDMI channel) does not pick anything up andjust says 'no signal'
I have the 5920G version with the Ati 5920G graphics, VGA works fine but out of principal im determined to get the HDMI working,
I'm trying to connect my dv7t with the geforce 9600m to my hdtv via hdmi but the tv isn't picking up the signal. With my old dv9000, it recognized it right away and I didnt have to do anything. I can't check my control panel when I connect it because the laptop screen goes off and nothing else happens. I have dox's latest customized drivers if that matters.
It comes with nVidia 7200 Go video card. Theoritically, nVidia video card could come with HDMI, but not always the case. So..how do I know if mine has one? I am actually looking for eSata port since I want to purchase an external HD for backup purpose.
I'm planning on buying a new laptop soon and have been going through some of the threads regarding the HDMI port and I am a bit confused.
I would like to be able to take a 1080p/5.1 BD or .mkv on my laptop and connect it to my AV receiver via HDMI which then outputs 1080p/5.1 to my HDTV/speakers. I have no idea what minimum video card/sound card/processor is required for this.
I would like to know if the HDMI port on my B570 laptop is an input or an output port. I would like to use my laptop to play games from my ps3 three system so that the tv can be used by another member of my family.
i have HP 2000 notebook and all of a sudden HDMI port stopped working. Factory restore and a chipset driver worked and it started working. my bad, i installed a graphics driver, that took me back to sqaure one. HDMI port on the laptop is not working. HDMI cable and TV HDMI port is all working.i ran HP support assistant and it shows all required updates are in place. though it worked in between, it should be an issue with the chipset driver.
