Having problems with your Dell Latitude D600 Notebook ?

Laptop will boot up but only shows color lines/pixels

\015 Dell Latitude D600 will boot up to the desktop(can hear when OS loads)..but screen only shows color lines/pixels. I can still see the cursor but it's a black box in pixels. tried VGA with another monitor, replaced hardrive..still the samething..I'm not sure if it's the LCD or the Graphic Card(which is mounted to the motherboard)...thanks\015

Answers :

If you tried another monitor, and you've verified that the other monitor is campatible and functioning, then the problem is most likely the card. However, you might check the pins in the video cable you used on the other monitor. Also, when you used the other monitor, did you use the keyboard controls to direct the video output to the other screen. If you don't know how to do this, you should be able to dicipher the controls by looking at your keyboard for something that looks like a monitor. Each laptop has slightly different controls. Mine is the function key+the F4 key. Typically there's a cycle in this control. e.g. 1st time pressed = both monitors, 2nd time pressed, just other monitor, 3rd time pressed=laptop monitor.

Hope this helps.
If you get the same thing with an externe monitor then your Video card is dead. sometimes it's separate from the motherboard, if it's the case it might cost you 150 USD to replace it (used on ebay). If not sell it for parts...
