Having problems with your Dell Latitude D505 Notebook ?

Display goes off after few minutes of working. But the system is on. System has to be switched off by pressing the on/off button.Same problem continues if you switch on the button after some time. A lock glows in one of the warning lights by the side of the on/off button. A solution to this problem is greatly appreciated.


Answers :

Before I can give you a solution you need to troubleshoot further. If you can, connect your Laptop to an external monitor. Use the PC as normal, if it continues to work with no issues on the external monitor then you will need a new LCD screen.

\015\012Is the display off.... or is it just really really dim?? If it is dim then the backlight on your LCD screen is bad, and you will need to purchase a new LCD screen.
\015\012
\015\012Does this only happen in Windows? Can you go into the BIOS and leave it for a while and see if it still does it. If it only does it when you are in Windows then it is a software issue, probably a driver. If it occurs outside of Windows OS then it is a Hardware issue.

\015\012What does this mean... "Same problem continues if you switch on the button after some time." ?????? what are you trying to say? That you have to let it cool down before you can turn it back on to get video... if you have to let it sit for a while before it will work again, then your PC is OVER-HEATING. Which is probably fixed by cleaning out all the dust from the heat-sink and fan. Hopefully you didn't fry your video card.
