Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 6400 Notebook ?

LCD screen partially display's

\015 My LCD screen is only partially displayed. I have a black or sometimes blue or white area to my right side on the screen. When I press on the screen(Top just left of center-where the connector is), it sometimes resolves the issue and the full screen appears. Could this be the inverter board or the other board at the top of the screen where I press to get the full screen to appear. It appears at though the lcd screen is ok since it sometime shows a full screen. This happens at start-up. Usually when the full screen appears it remains for the time that I have the laptop on.\015\012\015\012I also have a light blue streak just left of center that is about 1.5 inches. This never disappears.\015

Answers :

This kind of issue is usually due to a loose inverter cable, re-seating the cable is a relatively simple matter. \015\012
\015\012If the laptop is still under warranty you should contact Dell to have it repaired, if on the other hand it is out of warranty you should shop around for a repair quote unless you are absolutely confident you can strip and reassemble your laptop.
