Dell :: E6400 How To Change External Monitor Refresh Rate? CRT Monitor

Mar 4, 2009

I recently just purchased and received a fancy Dell e6400 from one of the many dell deals. My eyes are light sensitive from looking at many computer screens over the years and due to this I avoid LCD screens and much prefer flat CRT monitors. My goal is to use the e6400 as my workstation computer while using the VGA out to power my 19in Sony CRT .....

Dell :: Inspiron 1420 Only Works On External Monitor

Nov 2, 2009

i have an inspiron 1420, and want to bring it around school, i usually use it as a desktop at home using an external monitor(FN + F8), for some reason my laptop only works when plugged with a monitor, the laptop monitor is blank but you can see light at least, but no images whatsoever. I got it to work after reformatting the second time but not the 3rd 4th or 5th time.

I've noticed something strange though when formatting with xp, the letters were both gray and red, and when it gets to the page with the estimation(usually about 30 minutes) the picture quality was crap like 4bit.

I've noticed that when i successfully got the laptop monitor working the picture quality ran at a full 32bit

Dell Inspiron N5110 :: Detecting Second Monitor That Does Not Exist

Nov 13, 2014

I have an Inspiron N5110 that is about 2 years old. The hard drive was replaced in January this year after being damaged. For the past couple of months I have had a problem with a second monitor being detected when the mains power cable is connected. There has never been a second monitor connected to this laptop. The screen resolution changes and if you have the Display panel open you can see it switch between single monitor and dual monitor. Every time it does this the screen goes black and then comes back up, the mouse pointer resets to the middle of the screen and it makes the noise you would expect when something is being plugged in. All of this does not happen when running on battery power. It happens most when the battery power is almost full or almost empty and the screen can change anywhere up to every 1-2 seconds at this time. When the charge is more towards the middle of the battery it happens a lot less often, maybe only every couple of minutes. It is almost to the point where the laptop is unusable if it is charging. We have checked the display drivers and reinstalled them just in case it was that but it didn't seem to make any difference.

Dell Inspiron N5050 :: Monitor Won't Start After Any Update

Nov 26, 2014

I have upgraded my Win 7 operating system to Win 8.1. on my Dell Inspiron NS5050. All other components remain the same. The first deals with the USB Port.  I insert a USB and it is not recognized. I open Device Manager and in Properties uninstall the the Driver and reboot.  The USB now works correctly.  Why does this keep happening? Tried to update Driver but comes back device is up to date.  When USB fails I get message, "Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)".

Second Issue.  Monitor won't start after any updates.  After several times starting and restarting, I connected to an external monitor.  External monitor starts and I can Log In. Computer functions normally with external monitor.  Device Manager one time showed an error with the monitor.  I deleted the driver and the original monitor worked correctly. Other times with a simple "Windows Defender" update monitor won't start.  Using external monitor works every time.  Additional monitor switching sometimes works other times not.  Not sure what is wrong with the F1 key. Turns on and off monitor?

Dell :: Inspiron 6400 On External Monitor, Regions Of Image Flash

May 11, 2010

I have been using an external LCD monitor hooked to my inspiron 6400 for 6 months, everything is fine. but 2 days ago when I moved the laptop a little far away from its old place,

I tried to add a 6-feet VGA extension cable to the present VGA cable of the external monitor . the image with extension cable is horrible, so I take the extension cable off and move the laptop back to the old place. and a problem showed up:

when I hook my inspiron 6400 to the external LCD monitor via VGA port on the laptop, some regions of the image on the external monitor flash (if I put on a document, the words are shaking, or "dancing"),

for example the upper right corner, and the middle section of the screen are doing this right now. and if I take the VGA cable off and put it back on, the flashing region changes. but one thing for sure: Not all the screen flash, only several regions.

Dell Inspiron N5010 :: Display Now Only Works When External Monitor Is Connected

Apr 27, 2013

My laptop was working correctly and then I booted up one day, the bios worked fine but then the screen went black. I connected an external monitor to the lap-top and the laptop display works fine. As soon as I remove the external monitor, again, I get a black screen on my lap-top.

I have run the full system option of the Dell diagnostics and have 2 errors, battery and dvd flash rom. I have ordered a new battery. I have also noticed that my lap-top does appear to get quite hot.

Tried (and sometimes successful) to connect HDTV to laptop, Inspiron 5720.  Now laptop screen does not display (goes black) without an external monitor physically attached.

Dell Inspiron N5010 :: Blank Screen At Startup (External Monitor Also Didn't Work)

Oct 7, 2012

I have an issue with my Inspiron N5010 screen, it doesn't work when switching on my laptop on Battery or AC mode. It happens a lot of times when I turn on the laptop the power button, the power indicators at the bottom turns on normally and the laptop is running without any weird sounds. But the screen is pitch black even doesn't show up anything when I concentrate on it in with a lamp or any light.

When I press the power button again even after 5 mins from the start time of being running the laptop just turn off immediately and doesn't take time to switch off as If the windows wasn't loaded!

I was resolving this problem by disconnecting the AC adapter > removing the battery > Pressing and hold the power button for 20 seconds technique.but today it doesn't work anymore, If there's anything I can do to get the screen backlight to work normally ....

Dell Inspiron 15R 5521N :: When Try To Connect Laptop To Acer Monitor With HDMI Cable / It Gives Signal Error

Mar 21, 2013

I have recently purchased Dell Inspiron 15R 5521N laptop with Windows 8 Pro. When I try to connect my laptop to an Acer monitor with an HDMI cable, it gives me a no signal error. But when the same laptop is connected to a Philips monitor using the same cable, it works perfectly. As usual I thought that the monitor was the culprit, but when I connected another laptop to the Acer monitor using the same cable it worked without any errors. So where does the problem lie. The HDMI cable is OK, the laptop is also OK as also the Acer monitor?

Dell :: Buying A Monitor

Jul 23, 2007

So I have been looking into something bigger than a 17' (yes i know im getting greedy as far as size) However Im not sure of the quality, performance and other things and was wondering if you guys could fill in the gaps.

Will be used for
-Light gaming, but i definately want a low 'response time'
-Watching movies
-Browsing internet

My main questions are.
-what is a good 'response time'?

Ive seen 2ms, 5ms as the lowest times and im guessing these times are more than reasonable for playin a few games.

-Will a 7900GS be strong enough to handle displaying a resolution of say 1600x1200 or 1920x1200 and play a game or two w/o any issues?

Dell :: Monitor Heat

May 19, 2010

I wish I had found this place before I purchased my new Dell, I had an old dell xps laptop maxed out and never had an issue with it and after 4 years sold it on ebay for 800.00. bad decision.

What to do what's done is done, my question is, On my old dell xps i use to use a program to monitor the temp and was able to bring it down 3 degrees by changing the thermal compound.

Before I do anything with this beautiful looking studio xps. I would like to know if and what people are using to monitor the temperature. I have installed speedfan and it seems ok but as we all know with dell systems they like to make it difficult for us to monitor the temps.

I checked the logs on speedfan and did not see anyone else posting settings for the studio xps .....

It always wants to revert back the VGA screen as primary and ignores the second DVI monitor.

Dell :: HDTV To Use As A TV And A Monitor

Dec 9, 2007

a couple of months ago my brother bought a big HDTV to use as a TV and a monitor. To me it didn't look good at all, it's hard to describe but it just didn't look proper. Since then we recently got one for the living room too, and I have to say I'm very disappointed. It looks the same as my brothers, kind of fuzzy, like the FPS isn't as good, and rather pixelly :S and this is when watching TV. Our old school TV looked 10 times better. Also, when hooked up to my M1710 it looks absolutely horrible, even at 1900 res.
