Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1200 Notebook ?

Dell laptop monitor is blank. When the computer boots I see an image for a split second, then it goes black with a faint ghost image that eventually fades.


Answers :

Hello there,

please ensure it that the graphics adaptor is working properly by combinig laptop and an external monitor.
If you still face the same problem, then the graphic adaptor maybe malfunctioning and has to be replaced..

The internal intel 900 GMA Chip can be replaced and purchased seperately, but unless you do have some experience in exchanging notebook parts or are willing to cope with such issues I would leave it to a technician to do the replacement.


Good luck

VA1930WM monitor turns on, displays normal for one second then goes black. Then it turns on again after a minute or so for one second and goes black. This keeps repeating over and over.

The screen on my packard bell laptop flickers. It is approx 1 year old. This happens if it has been on a while or has just powered up, when plugged in or running on battery regardless of what it is being used for (ie watching films, research etc). The screen flickers black. It will be running as normal then will flick once for a split second or it will do it continuously and eventually stay black.

Okay, so I had a customer come in with this laptop and said that the screen wouldn't turn on. So I fiddled with the screen for a while and eventually it came on. 3 days later it goes black again, I figured it was the inverter board and have already ordered a replacement, but I am wanting a second opinion. Also, the computer wont seem to boot for some reason but it did when it was working for those 3 days. Things I've Tried: Reseating the video cable checking output voltage of inverter (0.03
