Having problems with your Dell Inspiron B130 Notebook ?

Unable to view screen - computer starts up and no lcd usage. I tried connecting another monitor and doesn't work either. Could it be the video card. Thank you!


Answers :

Press the combination keys Fn+F... key that switches on LCD or external monitor. If that solution does not work...it means that your video card chip is dead.
Try this first, after you plug in that external monitor, press Fn key and F8, That should transfer the image to the external monitor, to double check the LCD,
\015\012try to run the diagnostics by pressing FN key + POWER button while the computer is off, that will
\015\012display colors on the screen and your will hear a single beep. If you see that then your LCD is good.
\015\012And for the external monitor if it really doesn't work
\015\012and the monitor is working with other source,
\015\012Then you'll end up replacing the video card.
