Having problems with your Dell Studio 17 Laptop ?

Will not get to post

\015 When i start my dell studio laptop the lights will come one one by one and after that it doesnt do anything. The cd drive seems to go on then off and if i hold down d when i start up i get the lcd to flash solid colors. It seems like its not getting to post. i have attempted everything i know any advice\015

Answers :

Hi there!
If you're saying that the lights come on one by one then
you're post completed.

Do you still hear the windows load up?

The best way for the problem of yours is to plug in an external monitor,

In that way you will see if you need to replace the motherboard because you have tested the LCD and it works fine,

Try re seating the battery and ac adapter.


Hope this helps!

Faulty Monitor? I bought one of these Xerox flat panel 19 inch monitors to replace my convention Sony unit about 4-5 months ago. It has worked just fine until about 7 days ago. Are there any known problems with these Xerox units? I turn my computer off during the day, when I am at work. I also turn my computer off during the night when I am asleep.
