Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1300 Notebook ?

When I close the laptop and reopen it, there is just a black screen and I can't get it to work. So I end up having to turn off the computer. Also when I go to the shut down from the start menu, the standby button is grayed out. Why is that?


Answers :

Sounds like the screen saver and power management are competing for the control of the LCD. I'd try the following.\015\0121. Disable any screen saver\015\0122. Update the system BIOS and Video driver to the most current available from support.dell.com\015\0123. Set power management to turn off the LCD after 10 minutes and set the LCD to HIBERNATE when the LCD is closed. (Hibernate will require you to press the power button to resume windows, but your windows state will be saved to the hard drive)
The computer may have the Standby feature disabled. When you close the lid, the computer would normally go into standby, sleep, or hibernate. Is this machine running XP? If it is you can go into the power saving settings and tell the machine to not hibernate or sleep when you close the lid. You can find the settings in the advanced portion of the screensaver tab in the Display settings controls.
