Having problems with your Dell Vostro 1500 Notebook ?
Laptop inverter problem
\015 My display turned dark although i could make out distinct images under torchlight. I replaced the inverter and now its working on ac power . as soon as i turn to battery power the display again goes blank as it was with the faulty inverter. also the laptop display brightness control function keys don't work and i cant change the screen brightnessplease help me i use a dell vostro 1500 laptop\015\012\015\012I have the very same issue with my Dell Vostro 1500 and of course it was out of warranty (just ONE year!) 3 months ago. My brightness controls work, but I have the same issue with the screen going dark after about 1-2 minutes. It's VERY frustrating. Not sure if I should work with Dell to repair or take to Geek Squad or something. Any suggestions?\015
Its funny I don't know if this is related, but I have pretty new Compaq CQ50. The computer was droped and the back panel fell off. Eventually the screen inverter needed to be replaced. I bought a cheap screen inverter from Hong Kong for $5. When I put it in the screen inverter was buzzing enough to be worried. Anyhow the way the inverter is mounted in the CQ50 is its held on with a magnet instead of screws. I became suspicious and I lifted the inverter off the magnet. Basic engineering tells you the mounting magnet was interfering with the coil in the screen inverter. Its almost like electrical/computer engineers at HP/Compaq did this intentionally so no other company could fix the screen inverter. Anyhow i removed the tape from the mounting magnet and took it out and just taped my screen inverter into place. It works perfectly and no buzzing because of no magnetic interference. And I didn't pay alot for another screen inverter. It takes a good GT engineer to see engineering dessign sabotage Ha Ha Ha!! :-) I'm a Helluva an Engineer
NVidia drivers have a problem it seems, not sure if fixed ever or not, but I had this problem and it drove me NUTS. I didn't have this problem for the first year, then I updated to NEW DRIVERS and all hell broke loose. The PROBLEM is (in my case anyway) that sometimes the system thinks the MAIN monitor is OFF and it PRESUMES the EXTERNAL monitor is in use. For awhile I hooked up an external monitor every time it came up blank, then reset my video settings and it would just work. Then I realized that by using the Fn-Switch Video key combination (to switch which monitors were being used) that I could do it BLINDLY sometimes, however... if you closed your lid while running, Windows Media Player, and power off or screen saver kicked in anywhere along the way, it would HANG until I FIRST killed Media Player.. then it would let me reset video settings. Eventually I just went through NVidia drivers backwards until the problem went away.. SEEMS to have gone away anyway. Good luck :) m.i.k.o.l.a.v.i.s.i.o.n
