Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 9400 Notebook ?

Dell Inspiron 9400 notebook display blank

\015 I had a similar problem when not long after starting up notebook I experienced zigzag lines running horizontally across the screen. The screen flashed off and on several times and then froze. I restarted notebook several times and got nothing on the screen at all. I followed the Dell troubleshooting guide that instructed me to run diagnostics by holding down key whilst pressing power button until keyboard lock symbol lights begin flashing. I did this but got no images or beeps. I also tried an external monitor (via HDMI cable) but got no signal. I'm assuming that the problem is the video card which will need replacing? However I live in the country and servicing/parts are difficult and slow. Of course the Dell warranty has run out as well. Any guidance would be appreciated.\015

Answers :

Most likely, as you have said, this is already a hardware issue. For hardware issues the best thing to do is to have your system checked out by a local hardware technician. If your video is in fact the issue here then most likely you will be needing replacement for the motherboard now this costs a lot. so you have two choices really, 1) Just get a new laptop because the price of a new one will cost almost as much as replacing the part. 2) Have it fixed by Dell and have the part replaced then ask for warranty reinstatement, if they have one.
