Problem with Fan - Dell Laptop Inspiron B130 ?

\015 Problem with my Dell Laptop Inspiron B130. Turns on, shows dell boot up screen, then goes black but can faintly see the windows start screen. I was told in last posting it's the fan. Can you recommend a site to go to for instructions on how to properly replace the fan? To remove casing and such. UPDATE: When I turned it on again...I listened for the fan and did not notice it turn on. I flipped it over and looked at it and it was not moving. My vents look very clean. I unscrewed what I could and used compressed air and wiped up any visible dust. It's pretty clean. I think you're right the fan is toast. How do I replace it? What's a good place to search out a low cost replacement? Online instructions on how to replace? Thank you again for your time! :)\015

Hello,

\015\012If the fan is dead, then the laptop will shut itself off after a short while to prevent heat damage. It is normal for the fan to spin up when you turn on the laptop and then stop turning. The fan will kick in again when it is needed as heat builds up. The system fan has absolutely nothing to do with the lcd lighting up.......seriously.

\015\012If the laptop is running, but the screen goes dark after a few seconds, it sounds more like the backlight on the lcd panel is shot. From what you describe, I assume that your lcd is not 'lit up' at all, but you can see a faint image on the screen. If this is the case, then either the inverter board is shot, or the backlight for the lcd panel is dead. You can try calling Dell at 1-800-www-dell and try to purchase an inverter board. They are cheap, and it would be worth the gamble to buy one, because if the backlight is shot, then you need a new lcd panel - $350+ (the backlight is part of it and not replaceable). The inverter board is located at the bottom of the display module, right behind the dell logo at the bottom of the display. It's quite easy to get at.
\015\012
\015\012Here's a good test. Shut the laptop off, and attach a computer monitor to the 15 pin vga connector at the left side of the laptop. Turn on the laptop and the monitor should show you an image. If not, try holding the blue 'fn' key and press and release the f8 key. This should switch you over to the external monitor. If the laptop works fine when connected to an external monitor but has no image, then it's definitely not the fan, and you should try an inverter board. If still no good with a new inverter board, you can still use the laptop with an external monitor.

\015\012Hope this helps!.......let me know how you make out.

Same problem I also have a dell inspiron 1525 laptop that likes to shut down on its own. I thought it might be overheated so I got the program to monitor CPU and GPU temp.

It seems many ppl have similar problem with this product over on the dell support forum and dell has not issue any official statement. All the posters tried calling the support line and that's going no where.
