Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 8600 Notebook ?

Dell Inspiron8600 display is blank. It begins booting, the screen flashes with the Dell logo then it goes blank. I can see faint images on screen but can't read anything. Can I hook up to an external monitor to get my stuff off to my hard drive...then get a new computer?


Answers :

You can hook up the external monitor and confirm if it's the LCD.\015\012The inverter could have gone kaput but a place to check would be the ribbon cable.
If you get the boot image on your screen then you screen is working correctly unless there's something that you not explaining. You can try an ext. monitor if you think it is something related to your LCD screen not woring during boot up. If the ext monitor not showing your laptop to boot then you have problem with your OS and may need to get it repaired or restored.

My screen in my dell 1525 laptop died. I bought another one from dell. After installation the screen seemed to work great. After 4 or 5 min the screen goes blank. I use vista home. Could it be a driver? Would the vista install disk have that driver on it? An external monitor worked fine. That's a different port though.
