Dell Inspiron 1545 :: Screen Loads For Awhile Then Fades Into Black

May 31, 2012

I have a Dell Inspiron 1545 and have had this laptop for 3 or  more years. Last night I shut off my laptop normally but today, upon booting, the screen just turns black and nothing else.When starting up, the Dell logo still loads and the screen still shows "safe mode or start up regularly."

Upon choosing either option, the screen loads for awhile then fades into black. Nothing else happens after.I would atleast like to know how to save my files within the laptop. [Atleast to start it up once more to save all the files to a USB and not lose them forever..]

Dell Studio 1558 :: Screen Fades To Black / Stays Black For 2-3 Seconds And Then Pops Back Up

Apr 26, 2013

I have a Studio 1558 laptop running Windows 7.  Recently, when I open an application (ex. Microsoft Word, McAfee, Excel), the screen fades to black, stays black for 2-3 seconds, then pops back up.  It has happened at a few other times too, but I don't recall the specific circumstances.  The laptop is 2 1/2 years old, unfortunately out of warranty ....

Dell Inspiron 3520 :: Upgraded To Windows 8.1 - Breaking Up Of Screen With Loads Of Horizontal Lines Running Across It

Dec 15, 2014

I inadvertently upgraded to Windows 8.1 which I had been trying to avoid doing and don't know how it happened as I had continually knocked back prompts to upgrade.  I originally did upgrade to 8.1 last year and had such major graphics issues I eventually restored factory settings to get back to Windows 8 which solved all the issues.  Now the same problems are happening i.e. breaking up of the screen with loads of horizontal lines running across it.  

I downloaded all the updated drivers I could from the Dell site but the graphics driver and video driver would not work and I kept getting the message that the laptop was not compatible with the downloads.  It is a Dell Inspiron 3520 and the recommended drivers just will not install. I don't want to have to go through all the hassle of restoring factory settings again.  I am sure the problem is with these 2 drivers mainly the NDJN4 video driver.

Dell Vostro 3460 :: Not Boot Only Loads The Dell Logo And Then Shows A Black Page

Feb 9, 2013

my laptop vostro 3460 won't boot any more. When I turn it on it loads the Dell logo (I suppose it passes the POST) but then it just shows a black page. It could be anything, but I guess that it may have something to do with Windows 8 and the UEFI system. I also would be quite happy to install linux mint and get rid of Windows, but I don't know how to change the boot priority order.

So my questions are:

1 is it a hardware issue ? if not, can I solve my problem easily ?

2 how can I change the boot priority order, to install mint ?

Dell :: Inspiron 1545 With Bright Screen

Apr 3, 2009

I've noticed that the screen doesn't seem to be evenly lit. For example when I set the desktop background to black, it looks pretty black at the top of the screen, but as I look further down towards the bottom it turns almost medium gray/blue-ish.

I've tried all brightness, contrast and gamma settings with no luck.

Has anyone else seen this problem, and is it a reason for sending back the laptop? Or is this something "you get" for buying a lower-end laptop like the 1545?

Dell :: Inspiron 1545 To Have 16:9 Ratio Screen

Dec 8, 2008


Dell has unwittingly revealed a major revision to its Inspiron notebooks courtesy of a company-hosted technology guide discovered late yesterday. The Inspiron 1545 will be one of Dell's first truly mainstream notebooks with a 16:9 aspect ratio display and should switch from today's 15.4-inch LCD to a more movie-friendly 15.6-inch, 1366x768 (WXGA) screen with the option of an LED backlight. It should also mark a jump to Centrino 2 that carries anything from a 2GHz Celeron to a 2.53GHz Core 2 Duo and will bring GMA 4500MHD integrated video as a result.

Little else is known from the leak, though the baseline RAM will be doubled to 1GB while the enclosure appears headed to a darker, glossy look versus the silver tones of the existing Inspiron 1525. Dell also makes clear plans to ship the system with an Ubuntu Linux option in addition to the expected Windows Vista choice.

When the 1545 or a smaller equivalent like the 1445 would appear hasn't been divulged with the leak, though the proximity to the holidays without a matching announcement may point to an early 2009 update. [via Engadget]

Dell :: Inspiron 1545 LED Screen No Back Light?

Apr 24, 2010

Recently I broke the screen on my laptop and I have purchased and received a replacement Dell Inspiron 15.6" Matte 1600x900 LED screen from an internet retailer.

The problem is that when I connected it to the laptop first time it did not work, I figured out there was a loose connection for my flex cable (my bad), then I made the connection firm and I got my new screen working perfectly! I got happy and screwed back the screen. Before assembling everything back, just tried it again and damn - the picture became very-very dark. I mean, no colorful details on the screen - I do see a picture but it is shades of dark grey - i can hardly see something there but again, the picture is there. I don't know much about LED screens but I would say it looks like there is no "backlight" or something like that.

Note, when I switch to the external monitor - everything is fine. First I thought the culprit is the flexible LED cable that goes from the motherboard to the LED screen. I just thought that maybe I broke the cable or its connection when I was disconnecting/connecting my LED screen. I figured out the cable part number (R267J) and ordered a new one from Dell. Once it arrived, I tried it - the same problem . So right now I definitely know the following:

1. The replacement LED screen must be good cause I saw it working and it is actually showing something, just there is a lack of brightness or "backlight"

2. The LED flex cable is good (I have the old and new one - they work the same)

3. The external LCD monitor connected via VGA works well - so it looks like the video controller is OK

Guys, what should I try next?

Dell Inspiron 1545 :: Flickering Screen And Won't Turn On

Feb 6, 2013

So I was using my Inspiron 1545 and everything was going fine, then suddenly the screen just went nuts. It was green and pink, flickering, and had bars flashing everywhere. I turned it off manually, and after that it would turn on a few times (BIOS graphics were fine) but the desktop would be messed up. Then soon after that, I couldn't even get to BIOS. I press the power, the fan starts for like 2 seconds, then the laptop completely shuts down. I've tried removing the power supply and battery, holding the power button, then putting them back to no avail. I've also tried having it only connected to the power supply. I've even tried removing one of the two RAM.

Dell Inspiron 1545 :: Won't Boot - Stuck At Screen Starting Windows

Mar 6, 2013

I have a Dell Inspiron 1545 that doesn't boot successfully. It gets to the screen indicating "Starting WIndows" and then just sits there. I tried safe booting but when it should be displaying windows files that are loading, the screen just stays blank. I tried selecting "Repair" boot but the system just blinks and returns to the window that asks me to select Repair or Normal Boot. (If I select Normal Boot, it gets to "Starting Windows" and that's it.

I checked out the hard drive externally and it appears the hardware is functioning normally. I successfully booted with Hiren's Boot CD. I would like to attempt a RECOVERY but can't get beyond the Repair screen.

Since Dell doesn't provide an OS disk with the computer that would allow me to reinstall Windows 7...

Dell Inspiron 5547 :: Black Border Around Screen?

Sep 14, 2014

I am having issues with my Dell 5547 laptop. There is a roughly 1cm border all around the screen which wasn't there before and I noticed it now as my taskbar is adjusted 1cm up but when I put google chrome in full screen it sort of chops the top bar down a bit.

I noticed through google searches other people have had similar issues with Dell laptops however I can't seem to find a solution because every time I try to turn off the "maintain display scaling" it won't let me turn it off.
