The inverter flaked out in my Inspiron 6000, so I ordered a new "compatible" (same part number/specs, different design) inverter, which does work, only if the LCD is outside of the chassis.
Once the LCD is placed back into the chassis, something grounds and the inverter does not work. Once I take the screen back out of the chassis, it works fine. I'm not sure what could be grounding it or causing it not to work
I have a dell inspiron n5110 laptop that was recently slammed to the floor because of some crazy incident. Anyways, the screen shattered so i replaced the screen and attached the cables properly. The laptop powers on, but no display on the screen what so ever, its completely black.
I did the take out the battery and power cord, held power down for 60 sec. that was a no go
I don't know what could be the problem. I even hooked the laptop via hdmi to my tv and it works fine on the tv so i know the laptop is working. Also my warranty expired so that won't do. would really like to resolve this issue without forking over a couple hundred bucks.
I have been getting the dreaded blue screen every couple of days for the last few months but since last week I keep getting it every 15 minutes ! My lapotp is 4 years old so I guess I cannot drag it anymore and have to think about a replacement hard drive or a new laptop.
So which one is the best option. I dont want to shell out the extra dough on the new one so was wondering if its worth buying a new HD and upgrading the RAM and keep working on the old one. I just use it for internet, word processing and Photoshop.
I recent;y installed a version of windows on my Dell Laptop, Inspiron 6000. I worked for a week or two then when I turned it on a couple days ago, it won't go pass the black screen with the blinking white line. A user some where on this site on an other post that had similar problems said that it to re-install and delete the existing partition and create another one with 120GB. I did but when creating another partition, I tried to type in the 122880 MB (122880MB = 120GB), and upon pressing ENTER, the numbers 122880 goes back to the number of MB of the partition disk space I had previously. I hope this all make sense. I do not have the money to buy another laptop. I have a Windows XP CD, but not the original. The laptop worked fine before with this version.
To fix the blinking line on the start-up black screen, all I need to do is to re-install windows XP and change the partition to 120GB. But every time I try to change the number of MB, it doesn't work but reverts back to the original number. Is there another way to fix the blinking-white-line-on-the-start-up-screen?
Also, I tried to use the repair control...doesn't work.
I purchased a lid, bezel, and cable, too. But the cable has a blue connector that looks like it would connect to the inverter. Is there actually an inverter board that goes just below the led lcd screen? If so, does anyone know the part number?
I have a dell inspiron 600m laptop and my screen is dimmed out. If I turn of my laptop and restart it, the display will come on for a second ( but it is a little bit reddish) and then I hear a noise and it light goes off, and I can;t see anymore. However, I am sure the computer is still running properly
I am sure that the computer is on, and is functioning properly for two reasons:
1- if it is sunny, i can see my desktop, and what ever I have open, be that a browser, a word document, so on and so forth
2-when i connect my laptop to an external display everything is fine...
i have a sony vaio c2z - nvidia geforce 7400; x-black lcd
i have had a lot of problems with my display since august. although i didn't notice at the time, it happened soon after i installed the Win 7 RC.
when i start the laptop up the screen looks all distorted and the colours arent correct:
[url] [url] [url] [url]
but when i take screencaps and connect it to another monitor everything looks fine.
i assumed the screen was knackered, but i installed a game a few weeks ago and it brought the display back to life, only for it to look crap again when i restarted. this also happened when i did a clean install of vista, only for the display to go bad when the updates installed.
i have tried many times, but have been unable to replicate this...............
I'm pretty disappointed since the whole reason I bought this computer was for photo editing and the RGB Led screen was just perfect. But the Dell rep tells me that they are no longer offering that screen and that they will be sending me a 15.6 inch WLED.
They are still checking with the dispatch people to make sure that they aren't shipping the RGB Led, but I was wondering what my options were? I'm tempted to ask Dell to give me the Studio 17 instead, since it seems to be one of the last Dell computers to offer the RGB Led.
Alright Well I bought a new inverter plugged it in and it still is doing the same thing. Only when i jiggle the wires the light goes on and i see the screen but not for long. I check for loose conncections but can't find any. The external display is fine. I'm wondering if it could be the actual bulb.
I received a Latitude E6500 with a WUXGA screen with the dreaded screen brightness problems. This is the same problem discussed here: E6500 WUXGA -
The bottom corners on mine are very dark. I had been expecting a little, and had been planning on dealing with it like I have with some laptops in the past, but it's kind of outrageous how discolored they are. Screen brightness evenness is very poor as well, with the bottom part of the screen significantly brighter.
My purchase order lists my screen as: Module,Liquid Crystal Display 15WU+,2CCFL,Samsung Maybach/Avia
How are people getting the exact model number and part number for their displays?
At any rate, it's the bad Samsung kind of screen. A lot of threads including the one I linked to state that there is also an LG/Philips screen that is much better for the same Dell WUXGA screen component.
Has anyone managed to get Dell to change a Samsung screen for an LG/Philips? If so, how did you do so?
My chat rep tells me that they can only replace using whatever was in the order initially.
I have a 3 year old Inspiron 6000. A few months ago I left it sitting on the couch and it overheated and shut itself down.
Fair enough, it's happened before. Except now the fans will not stop running on full speed.
I recently reformatted the computer, and reinstalled Windows and all the drivers, and it's still doing it.
I installed a temperature and fan control program and it shows the CPU temperature at 85 degrees steady, the CPU speed at 217 MHz (its a 1.6 GHz) and the CPU load is constantly spiking between 0ish and 50-75% .....
my laptop's lcd screen died 1 month after guarantee expiry. Since original LCD replacement screens are crazy expensive, I bought physically compatible lcd screen, that supports same resolution.
But I cannot get any higher resolution as 1024x768 (I've used 1400x1050 on original). I suspect there is a problem with drivers - my screen is recognized as plug and play monitor, but settings won't offer me any higher screen resolution.
Dell Inspiron 6000 with Dell diagnostic error code 3700:011B Fan runs at low speed, but there is no high speed. So the notebook works for many things, but I have to watch the temperature.
Dell tech suggested updating the BIOS, which I did. Then I replaced the fan, using excellent instructions on Dell's web site. No small accomplishment for this notebook. But I still have the same problem. There was no dust inside .....
I've got a 4-year-old Inspiron 6000 with 256 MB of RAM. I really don't know the first thing about laptop hardware, so I have a few questions that I hope someone can help me answer.
My laptop has been running pretty slowly for a while now. I don't play video games or do much that would require a lot of memory, although I suspect that Norton AntiVirus slows things down a lot, and iTunes as well (although I don't know that for sure).
Since I only have 256 MB of RAM, I'm wondering if upgrading by adding 512 MB, 1 GB or 2GB would help much/at all. If so, my other questions would be: how much should I get? What specifically should I buy (brand name, model, anything--cheapest would be preferable)? And how do I install it?
I just recently tried to power on my Inspiron 6000 and I got no display. The num lock, caps lock and another green light all lit up together briefly and that was it. The hard drive light blinked a couple times indicating the hard drive was trying to work, but nothing happened.
I put my ear to the laptop to see if I could hear the fans running and it appears the fans are on. The power button stays illuminated, so I know the laptop is on. The laptop just won't go through it's boot process at all and the screen is blank.
I just got my laptop back from Dell right before Christmas and the extended warranty expired the day after. They were fixing some cosmetic issues such as missing keys from the keyboard, the palm rest, etc. They also checked the functionality and performed all necessary changes to ensure my laptop was working properly as I purchased the complete care warranty initially.
I had just ordered new memory for it right before it stopped working. I have received the memory, but now the laptop doesn't work. I only had 512mb of memory originally so I ordered 2 Kingston 1 gb sticks to install. I've done some reading online and it seems my problem could be anything from a bad motherboard, memory, video card, etc. I don't want to post a novel but I can provide more info about the functionality of the laptop before sending it to Dell, if needed.
My Dell Inspiron 6000 (sisters actualy) is 2 months away from its final stage in its 3yr full coverage nd accidental coverage warrenty and before i send it in for a final check over and fix up (nt reali any probs wit it tho) i would like to see what her future upgrade paths are.
I have always noticed that this baby heats up like theres not tommoro and its mostly from the laptop side so is there a specific HDD i can buy that is cooler then the dell ones? size isnt an issue.
Another main issue wel its the only basic issue is heat towords the main air vent and near the ram stick ... is there any mod or fans i can buy to change the current fans with so that the laptop cools better .....
I have been trying everything to get the sound to work on this Dell Inspiron 6000 of my son's (he's in Iraq) and despite my best efforts and even the efforts of the IT guy here at a networks company in the silicon valley.
We could not get any sound no matter what and it says there are no sound devices installed even though it lists the SigmaTel C-Major audio driver in Device Manager.
The IT guy says he has never seen something like this so I am wondering if a format and fresh install of Windows XP is in order? It seems my only option.
