Having problems with your Dell Latitude D400 Notebook ?

Partially blank screen on top of my DELL latitude d400

\015 Hi need help on my Dell Latitude d400. The top of my screen is partially blank. I can still use it by using the move command to move the applications in a good viewing location. Initially I thought this is infected by a virus but after removing the virus, it was suspected to be an LCD defect. Please advise...Ramir\015

Answers :

To determine if the LCD is faulty or the video card, connect an external monitor to the laptop's external video port, power up the external monitor first and the the laptop. The video will automatically switch to the external monitor.
\015\012If you see a normal Windows image then the video card is OK and the fault is the LCD screen, then try reseating the video cable/connector on the motherboard.
\015\012If the image is faulty on the external monitor then the video card is faulty and it is part of the motherboard and cannot be repaired.
