Dell :: Inspiron Where Do I Reconfigure The Monitor?

Jul 22, 2009

I had to reinstall Win XP and the utilities disk on my Inspiron 1100. Problem is that the monitor is not recognized so the default display is vga. How/where do I reconfigure the monitor? Right now only about 60% of the screen is being used. Very anoying to say the least.

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 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 :: How To Switch Your Inspiron 9300 WUXGA LCD Into An Inspiron 9400P

Aug 1, 2007

Guide to Switching your Inspiron 9300/M170 WUXGA into the Inspiron 9400/M1710:

You can't simply replace the display screens. The instructions below must be followed for your screen to work properly.

Required Materials:
- Small Phillips (I used #0 Phillips)
- Either 2 monitors (9400 and 9300) or part #YPNL-N017B (Google the # to buy it).

Step 1: Remove the display assembly. Dell has an excellent guide for this on their website.
[url] Click on Display)

Step 2: Remove the LCD Bezel (the gray trim around the screen). This requires removing the screws under the circular pads. I used a small flathead to pry open the bezel.

Step 3: Remove the 8 screws around the sides of the LCD. This will make it so your screen can be taken out. Do not worry about any screws on the top, they are for other things.

Step 4: At the bottom of the screen, there is a green circuit board. On the left side, you will see a screw holding the wire down. Remove this.

Step 5: Remove the LCD screen from the case.

Step 6: Look at the bottom circuit board again. This is the board we need to swap! Disconnect the 2 connections on the board. There should be on on the bottom and one on the side that is white.

Step 7: There will be 3 silver screws holding the circuit to the screen. Remove these screws. Note: This requires a very small phillips. I used a #0 Phillips to do the trick.

Step 8: Repeat steps 1-7 for your other monitor OR if you don't have another monitor...you will need to buy an inverter chip. The mfg # is YPNL-N017B. If you google that number, you should find a bunch of sites willing to sell it.

Step 9: Simply swap the bottom circuit boards between monitors or insert the new one that you bought.

Step 10: Follow steps 1-7 in reverse to reconnect everything back up! Before screwing everything back up. I suggest you plug it in first to test it out.

Congratulations. Your WUXGA LCD will now work properly on the Inspiron 9400. For anyone wondering, you MUST replace the bottom circuit board or the brightness controls will not work. You brightness will be stuck at the lowest setting and nearly impossible to see.

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 .....

Dell :: 630 W/ Dual Monitor

Feb 1, 2010

I am trying to run dual monitors on a d630 with Intel 965 video and the laptop, after reboot, will not hold its settings.

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

I have tried undocking and removing the dock profile so it can re-establish it but no success.

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.

Dell :: Inspiron 15 (or 1535) & Inspiron 6400 (or E1505)

Feb 20, 2009

I am looking into replacing my old Dell Inspiron 6400, as it has been excellent -I think I should buy another Dell!

I am looking at the new Inspiron 15, which has a 15.6" display.

Can anyone tell me whether the actual laptop itself is bigger or smaller than my current 6400? I am interested in knowing width.

I see a lot of dead space on my 6400, and hopefully Dell realized this, and instead of making another 15.4" with dead space, they made use of this and gave a better display!

Dell :: XPS 1645 Regarding Monitor Choice?

May 4, 2010

recently got a replacement for my laptop with an xps 1645. However when it got here I was having a hard time viewing the screen with the wide screen view. My current laptop has a

15.6 945p HD+ WLED LCD

However I have an option to get either a

16" FHD RGB Display in Merlot Red with leather and 2.0 MP Webcam, 1645/1647

or

15.6 FHD WLED Display in Merlot Red with leather and 2.0 MP Webcam, 1645/1647

I'd prefer to have a more normal screen size. Can anyone tell me what is the difference between these three monitors.

Dell :: FX2500M Temp Monitor

May 12, 2008

I've got a e1705 with a FX 2500M in it . 2G of ram, and a T2400 intel processor.

I got a copy of Neverwinter Nights 2 for free, so I went to play it. I was cruising along making my character, when my laptop shut off! I restarted, and it said it stopped because of temperature. So, I started up core temp so I could watch the temp, and restarted the game. Once I got into the game, and it's all that was running, neither of my cores went above 110 degrees F. Then, it shut down again. I was not running all the 'options' to make it pretty, but I was running it at 1920x1200. I dropped it down some so I could monitor the temps (same ratio, just a little smaller).

I updated my drivers to the newest MovileForce Drivers, and want to retest, but figured I'd also watch my card temps, to see if that was causing the shutdown?

I installed fangui, and no gpu temp is listed. I also was going to try nvtemplogger, but it said something like my card isn't capable of temperature monitoring?

So, how do I monitor it? Does my card have the ability to output it's temp to one of the tools?

Dell :: Monitor The Temperatures On 7950 GTX

Jan 4, 2008

i'd like to know what kind of temps to expect from a normally working card.

What are your temps on idle (normal room temp 20c-30c)
and what are the max temp it reaches when say we run the ati tool graphical view. (Just for reference - when idle, ATI Tool reports 65c on my card, and after running the 3d view of ati tool the card will reach 104c).

I'd like everyone who has that info to post it here and i'll do the math and calculate the avarage working temp of that card.

Since different monitoring progs report different tempratures please state which program is reporting the temps.

Dell :: Dual Monitor Resolution

Jul 13, 2009

having trouble with my second monitor that I am trying to connect.

I am using a DVI to HDMI cable and inputting it into the second screen (It is an lcd tv).

Windows 7 allows me to change the resolution of both monitors seperately. i made my regular monitor the same 1920 x 1200, but no matter what resolution i make the second screen, the edges, top bottom left and right are all cut off, sort of like a cropped version of what i should be seeing .....

Dell :: I Hate How The SXPS 13's Monitor...

Aug 26, 2009

What I mean is that the plastic covering that makes the monitor look edge-to-edge is not aligned right. The side of the glass sticks out to a point where you can push it in.

I mean, it doesn't even seemed like the plastic covering fits at all with the lid! Too bad pushing it in does nothing..the plastic cover just pops back out.

Dell replaced my monitor for this reason alone..except...the new monitor has the SAME EXACT problem. Is anyone else experiencing the same problem? If so, how do you fix it? I thought about trimming the side out to make it fit inside the lid, tho it does sound a little dangerous to do

Dell :: M6400 External Monitor

Dec 10, 2008

I was wondering if anybody else is having issues with using 2 external monitors with their M6400?

My configuration:
I have a M6400 Covet, FX3700M, 8GB, Vista Ultimate 64, A01 BIOS, updated drivers... connected to an E/Port Plus 210W Port replicator. I have a 24" Dell 2405FPW external monitor connected to display #1 (1920x1200) and a 19" 1908WFP connected to display #2. (1440 x 900). Both are connected via DVI connectors.

My problem:
The secondary monitor never has problems... However, the main monitor (24" @ 1920x1200) goes all crazy. It has red "dots" that appear all over the screen in dark areas. The bottom of the screen sometimes has horizontal bars. I see red and black vertical bars as well. The screen constantly flickers and the image hangs off the edges many times. If I change the resolution to BELOW 1440 x 900 the screen looks fine. Anything over 1440 x 900 goes crazy. (none of this occurs when using the LCD on the laptop itself)

The 24" monitor is fine. I have swapped cables and they do not help. If I plug up my desktop computer to the montior- it is perfect in 1920x1200. If I plug up my old Dell Precision M90 using it's old E/Port docking station- it too works fine in 1920 x 1200. So it's not the monitor.

Dell support doesn't know what the problem is. They say it's probably a driver issue. (I have the latest driver) They say they will contact me in the future if there is ever a solution and they are going to escalate it to their video hardware team.

Is there anybody else out there experiencing the same issues as me?
If you are running dual monitors successfully with the E/Port Plus 210W, what monitors are you using, at what resolution and what connector? (DVI or that new display port thing) If you aren't using the E/Port Plus 210W- what docking station did dell sell you?

I need to get a resolution to this ASAP.

I've attached two photos taken from my digital camera showing the screen issues.

Dell :: XPS M1330 & External Monitor

Aug 20, 2007

I am about to take delivery of an XPS M1330 with the 128MB NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GS graphics card. When at my desk, I am looking to use the laptop with a Dell 19-inch Widescreen LCD Flat Panel Monitor [url] I am hoping to use the external monitor at the same time as the laptop monitor (for example, Outlook on one screen and Internet Explorer on the other).

- Is this possible? Does the graphics card support multiple monitors / dual view in this way?

The XPS screen resolution is 1280x800 and the resolution of the external monitor is 1440x900.

- Will the fact that the screens have different resolutions cause any problems?
