Dell :: Inspiron 600M
My Dell Inspirion 600M hard drive died.
I am getting a new hard drive now, nut I lost the Original Recovery CD so I cannot install the Windows XP Home Edition ...
Does anyone have an ISO copy of it? Is it easy to install?
I don't want to install pirate copy on it.
Dell :: Inspiron 600m: Backlight Or Inverter?
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...
Dell :: M6400 Covet - Rubber Screen Stop
This is driving me crazy. The left rubber bumper on the keyboard deck of my m6400 keeps coming off. I called dell and they ended up replacing the entire deck just to replace this one little rubber piece and it just ended up coming off again.
I really don't want to call dell and set up a service call just to replace this one little piece. The last time I did the tech completely disassembled my laptop and it took him 3 reassembly attempts to get it to boot,
but I'm worried the my screen will get cracked if I don't (I have the covet with the glass screen). Seems like a really bad design.
HP/Compaq :: Black Rubber 'bumpers' On Screen
What is the best way to clean the screen and black rubber 'bumpers' on the sides of the screen (they attract everything to them and seem impossible to keep clean.)
I ordered my system with the infinity display (fake glass over the screen lol), can I use a solution spray (like Monster, etc) to clean the whole thing or what?
Dell :: Inspiron 1525 Touchpad Buttons
the left button on the touchpad is playing up. When I click the left button the diagram of the left button on the little Dell Touchpad icon in the system tray lights up as if it's being pressed when it actually isn't. So it basically makes it impossible to use the touchpad because it then acts as if I'm holding down left click so it highlights everything. It's a real pain in the butt! The right clicker works fine.
Physically there isn't anything wrong with the button and it isn't sticking or anything like that. I tried reinstalling the drivers and it was ok for about 10 minutes and then just did the same thing.
Dell :: Cleaning Inspiron 1720 Media Direct Buttons
With my recent acquisition of a Studio XPS 16, I am selling my Inspiron 1720 to a friend of mine (yep he's getting a good deal and I am throwing in 200 or 300 bucks worth of stuff to boot because he's a good guy),
but I've noticed that my play and volume up media direct buttons tend to stick as if they've got some buildup behind them.
I hardly ever eat when using my laptop and I've never spilled anything on it so I'm guessing it's just normal buildup gunk but I'd rather take it apart and clean it to give it to him as clean as possible, if it's a relatively easy task.
Dell :: 600m Memory Upgrade
My hdd crapped out and I'm replacing it - I am toying with the idea of upping my memory as well. Current memory:
DUAL IN-LINE MEMORY MODULE, 256, 333, 32X64, 8K, 200
I am looking at one stick of:
Transcend 1GB 200-Pin DDR SO-DIMM DDR 266 (PC 2100) Notebook Memory Model TS128MSD64V6A - Retail
I mainly use office and surf the net.
PROCESSOR, 80535, 1.5G, 1M, PENTIUM M BANIAS, PLASTIC GRID ARRAY, INSPIRON
1) Given my usage and proc, is adding 1gb overkill?
2) Is there any advantage to getting 2 new sticks of 512, rather than one new stick of 1gb and 1 old stick of 128mb?
3) Is there any advantage to getting higher-speed ram (PC>2100)?
Dell :: 600m Need Driver To Install Mini PCI
My SMC PCMCIA adapter died a few days ago, and I'm really tired of dragging the cable with me as I move around the house. I can get a mini PCI wireless card from eBay [url]. It doesn't look like there's an installation CD in the eBay listing. Will I need a driver for it? What driver would I use? Also, is the antenna built into the card or would I need to add that? If I have to keep buying things to add wireless to this laptop, I'll just stick to USB, although I'd rather not tie up a USB port.
Dell :: Pointing Stick Covers, The Bumpy Rubber Ones, Who Has Them?
I'm hunting for some elusive pointstick covers for several D-series latitudes. Specifically, the broad,
flat caps that have about two dozen tiny rubber bumps on them. NOT the narrower, domed, classic "cat tongue" caps.
The Dell website lists four possible parts:
Manufacturer Part# 3X705 | Dell Part# 3X705
Manufacturer Part# KH487 | Dell Part# 310-7703
Manufacturer Part# 7X050 | Dell Part# 310-2870
Manufacturer Part# KH487 | Dell Part# 313-4188
...but they all show a picture of the old cat-tongue caps, not the bumpy ones that came stock with the later D-series laptops .....
Dell :: Power Cord/jack/battery Voltage: 600m
First post here...
Here's the deal, my 600m won't charge the battery anymore and will not run off of the power cord.
The power cord is showing 19.5v which is correct.
The back of the power adapter jack on the mobo is showing about 3.5v when plugged in and the two outside pins that charge the battery are only showing about 0.02v. Is this normal voltage or do you think the mobo broken?
I'm not really sure which of the battery charging pins to check the voltage from and can't find a diagram of it anywhere.
Dell :: Inspiron 1420 Screen
My 1420 is suffering from a bad screen problem. There is a horizontal split in my screen so it is showing double.
Also I cannot start up my laptop. It runs the Dell thing then some garbled letters/numbers are everywhere. This problem started when I took off my battery since my notebook was charging.
Afterwards my screen froze, I got the BSOD and when I rebooted I was stuck with this problem.
Dell :: Inspiron 1520 Screen
can't see a thing on the screen. He left the laptop on hibernate for around 3 hours and when he came back, the screen was very dark.
He says he's restarted several times since then and the only thing which seemed to "light up" the screen was taking the power out; allowing the laptop to run on battery. However, just 5 minutes ago, even though the laptop was on battery, the screen has gone dark. He can barely make out MSN conversations by shining his lamp onto the screen but he can't see the mouse cursor.
The laptop is around 1 and a half years old.
Dell :: Inspiron 1420 Screen Brightness
I've got an Inspiron 1420 running vista ultimate. I've had some bug issues in the past where I would set the screen brightness to 100% in both battery mode and plugged-in mode and it will still look dim but those issues always got resolved after a reboot.................................................
Dell :: Inspiron 1545 With Bright Screen
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 :: Old Inspiron 8100 Screen Blacks Out.
i found a old dell inspiron 8100 at my work that needs repaired.
the laptop works good except when i first got it couple days ago the screen would stay on but when you first start it would have a red or pink tint to it than would clear up after like min or 5min to normal.
so i ran it for couple hours because it did say with a note on the laptop the screen blacks out.
so that was true it went out than when i close the lid and open it would come back on for awhile.
and than it got to the point it ony comes on for like 5sec at start up than goes right off but you could see everything with a flash light facing it .....
Dell :: Screen Went Blank Inspiron 1521
Her mum was using the laptop a couple of nights ago and the screen just went blank suddenly when she was browsing the internet.
She held the Power button in and turned it off as it was still running. When she tried to Start it up again the Laptop is starting up but nothing is coming up on the screen, The screen is staying completely blank,
Although when you hold for talk sake the Light of your mobile phone around 1cm away from the Screen you can see the Desktop of the Laptop. So basically the laptop is working but theres no light to light the screen up it just stays black as if it isnt turned on.
Dell :: Replacement Screen For Inspiron 6000
i have a inspiron 6000 model# PP12L and need a new screen.
the one that is in there has the number 154X2LO2.
do i have to get one with the same number or can it be a different one, like one of these: LTN154X1, LTN154X2, LTN154X3, LTN154X3-L03, LTN154X3-L06, LTN154X3-L09, LTN154X3-L05, B154EW01
Dell :: Inspiron 6400 Screen Shuts Off
Whenever I play any type of game that needs a moving screen or any graphics at all, my screen will just shut off.
No sound comes out of the computer, the backlight isn't on, the screen is just dead.
I've been turning it off by taking out the battery and removing the power plug but haven't tried holding down the power button yet
Dell :: 1525 Inspiron Broken Screen
i got a dell1525 which all worked fine kids broke the screen, it has a hdmi lead out on it so i connected it to my tv which has a pc channel but when i go to hdmi 1 it just stays black screen
on the tv i have also tryed a vga lead with the same effect even pressing the fn key and
f8 is there a way i can get some picture or test as the laptop seems to boot up fine and id like to just buy a new screen rather then bin it
Dell :: Inspiron 1520 Screen Shuts Off
My screen just shuts off sometimes. It goes black and i may or may not be able to get it working again.
Pushing buttons on the keyboard or moving the mouse does nothing, nor adjusting the display's brightness. When it goes on i can hear the "da-dam" sound that Vista makes when you connect/disconnect something to/from a USB port.
It is very annoying as you might deduce...
Dell :: Inspiron 1545 To Have 16:9 Ratio Screen
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 5160 Screen Backlight
First off before I get into the problem I want to say that I am an experienced computer technician having worked on hundreds of laptops in the past. So I'm very familiar with the problems and solutions for them.
I just want that disclaimer to be up front that I'm not a rookie seeking laymans terms or solutions.
Anyway, that aside. A customer dropped off an Inspiron 5160 last week. The system wouldn't half power on he said so after testing, I determined that the AC jack was 'broken'. Sure enough after disassembling the computer I could see on the bottom of the motherboard where the AC adapter had been knocked loose.
I replaced the motherboard and immediately noticed that the screen would display the BIOS Dell logo for about 5 seconds, and then cut off.
With a flash light I could see the data images on the screen, just no CCFL light from the bulb to brighten the screen.
Dell :: Inspiron 6400 / E1505 Screen Brightness
I've had my trusty Dell Inspiron 6400 since 2006 and it's still going strong, but over the last couple of months
I've noticed that the screen doesn't appear to be as bright as it used to be. It's as if the brightness isn't set to full, but when you try to increase it you discover it is at full brightness.
Can LCD screens become dimmer over time and would a replacement screen fix this?
Dell :: Inspiron 9300 WUXGA Screen On M90
I moved my WUXGA 9300 screen to my new M90. It works okay and looks gorgeous, but it's 'off' position is solid white. Meaning when the screen turns 'off' it goes to solid white.
Anyone know why this is happening or what I could do?
I'm running the A08 Dell BIOS and I have a Quadro FX 1500m.
Dell :: Inspiron 8600, Straight To White Screen
We replaced the motherboard. Then it would start up but then shut back down. Swapped out the video card on a hunch, then we got a white screen with an odd color line through it periodically.
We can plug it into another monitor and it works fine so we're getting output.
Would this mean my screen is shot? If so, are there other models that will have compatible screens (17" XPS, for example)
Dell :: Inspiron 1525 Screen Becomes Very Dim On Power ON
I bought a DELL Inspiron 1525 model last year in March. Everything was perfect till yesterday when all of a sudden, when I put the power plug and switch it ON, the laptop screen becomes dark.
If I look carefully, I can see the Icons on the screen (which is very dim) suggesting the laptop is working properly. Another thing is that when the power plug is switched OFF,
I can bring back the screen to its normal functioning. I tried changing the brightness through BIOS settings, but it didn't help. I tried changing the adapter also but of no help.
Dell :: Inspiron 1526 Blank Screen After Hibernation
My Dell Inspiron 1526 won't restore after hibernation.
After a recent Vista update the laptop was placed in hibernation mode before the normal 'restart to complete update' process. After a minute or so i press a button expecting to see a logon screen, instead the monitor was off, blank screen with no power.
I presss every button but nothing happened. After a restart the monitor remains off but i can still hear 1526 checking the cd drive. I restarted several times trying the Fn+F8 option with an external monitor and pressing the up button while holding Fn but still the same.
1526 appear to be in a wierd state because i placed a XP boot cd and restart then hit Enter several times. If the backlight or inverter was the only problem then 1526 would boot from the cd as normal though i wouldn't be able to see. It doesn't, it simply power up, checks the cd drive then does nothing.
Dell :: Inspiron 6000 Screen (already Replaced Inverter)
My screen went black. Did some research and found it it was most likely the inverter.
I replaced the inverter but it still flickers and then goes black while its booting up.
How can I tell if this is the back light or if this is the lcd itself? I've heard the backlight is hard to replace and I might have to take it somewhere to have it done which would cost $$ .....
Dell :: Inspiron 14, Studio 14z 900p Screen
Does anyone know if the 900p screen on the inspiron 14 is the same as the one on the studio 14z?
It seems like people here are saying the screen on the 14z is great and I was wondering if the same panel is used in the inspiron 14, as that would be the laptop I'd like to buy.
Dell :: Inspiron 9300 Screen Swap With 9400
I'm trying to repair a 9300 with a radeon x300 video card in it - after the LCD panel died.
I've tried two panels to replace it, a WUXGA and a WXGA both from a 9400 - both panels are tested, and known to be absolutely working, as are the inverters.
In the 9300, the LCDs work, but the backlight doesn't come on, so they are effectively useless. I've tried them with all combinations of inverters, the ones specifically for those screens, then swapped around, and then changed for the original 9300 WUXGA inverter - nothing makes any difference, even though all parts are tested and working in a 9400.
The machine works fine with an external monitor, and in-a-sense works fine with the LCD panels - the output is working fine both ways, just not the backlight.
I've just never heard of a backlight problem on the card, only ever the inverter or backlight. The fact that the card was working fine before the old panel died also makes me doubt a problem there (and the old panel was an LCD problem, not a backlight problem).
Unfortunately, an LCD panel with no backlight at all is unusable, as it's almost impossible to see anything at all - much worse than a dim backlight. You have to hold it at the right angle, in the right lighting conditions, and squint
I've just tried flashing to the latest A05 system bios, and the latest ATI video bios from Dell, and that hasn't helped. Is there some good reason that 9400 panels aren't compatible with a 9300, or have I got a video card with dead backlight output?
The video card is the only thing I can think of, but it was working fine before the old panel died, and I've never heard of symptoms like this.
I don't have a working panel from a 9300 to test with, and can't afford to risk buying another panel, also replacement cards for the 9300 are like hens teeth.
Dell :: Inspiron 1545 LED Screen No Back Light?
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 6400 Changing TFT Screen In Laptop?
I have a Inspiron 6400 laptop which has a tru life screen, but it's the shiny type that is more of a mirror than a monitor
I've just upgraded to a latitude 6500 and the wife is having mine but hates the screen, so I need to get a matt finish one..... I guess cheapest place is eBay???
I also want the new screen tosupport a higher resolution, would this mean I need a new gfx card, as I'm sure it uses a intel one built into mobo ....
Dell :: Inspiron 9300 Screen Crapped Out, Pic Included
in the past few months i noticed some minor screen snowing that went away with time or repower of the system. while using pc tonight the screen all the sudden crapped out. don't know if i should replace the part or just sell it as is for scrap
the bar also changes color and is there regardless (bio, safe mode, normal ...)
i haven't hook it up to an external monitor because it's kind a hassle this late but will try tomorrow
bios still a04 since the battery died 4 year ago and i'm too cheap to buy one since it's plugged in 24/7
