Having problems with your Dell Inspiron E1705 Notebook ?

Dell Inspiron E1705 does not show any picture

\015 I have a dell inspiron e1705 laptop that started giving me problems today. When I started my computer today, the display screen showed nothing but an illuminated black blank screen. In the background I could hear Windows 7 booting, but could see nothing. I also did not have a mouse icon on the screen. I have no idea what to do or what is wrong, the only thing that has ever given me trouble is the graphics card. I do not know how to use an external monitor, as that could possibly help to see if the lcd monitor is the issue. I am clueless and would love some kind of help. Thanks\015

Answers :

First of all, check that the laptop is set to output video to the LCD. There should be a function key which will determine whether it is outputting video to the built-in LCD, the external monitor, or both. That should be holding down your "FN" key and hitting "F8." If it is on CRT ONLY, it should switch within 1-2 keypresses.

Secondly, take a good bright flashlight and shine it directly at the LCD panel from about 1-2 inches away. If you can actually see the graphics on the screen faintly in the background, your backlight is not turning on. The backlight is literally a bulb which lights up the screen, and they can burn out. It is repairable, and shouldn't cost more than $150.00 from a reputable repair shop.
If you hook an external monitor to the serial port you can verify if it is your display going out. To swith between the laptop screen and the external press and hold the Fn key and press the CRT/LCD button (should be the F8)
