Dell Latitude D600 Won't Boot Unless External Monitor Hooked

When I press the power button the fan goes, the power light turns on and stays on, the battery light flickers but nothing much from the hard drive LED. I suspected that the inverter blew out, and purchased compatible one second hand. You'll have to disconnect the video cable from the LCD screen (connector 2) and the inverter board (connectors 3 and 1). On HP laptops use Fn+F4. click site

I bought a new Toshiba laptop but I like my old one better and I would like to keep it for "play" and "experiments". Hooked up to external monitor, everything fine. It's possible that both video cables are not interchangeable and you cannot nx5000 with LCD and cable from nc6000. To boot any notebook with video you need three main parts: motherboard (with video card), processor and memory. http://www.techspot.com/community/topics/dell-latitude-d600-wont-boot-unless-external-monitor-hooked.155191/

I do not see anything on the screen (in fact the laptop screen does not turn on at all). Can it be the inverter It's not the inverter problem. Thanks so much. Regards, Be Na cj2600 February 9, 2010 | Be Na, First of all, I would check memory modules.

I do, but it won't work for these chips. By the way, what is your problem with the nx5000? Could be bad connection between video cable and LCD screen. Also took the thing (video card?) to the left of the cpu and the right of the hard drive out.

cj2600 May 31, 2008 | H.P. But if I play with the switch (tapping it down) I can get the screen to flicker. i have compag presario 2100. I WAS THINKING IT MIGHT BE THE POWER INVERTER BOARD IE: IF WINDOWS TRYS TO DRAW MORE POWER THEN IT CAN PRODUCE, OR POSSIBLY THE GRAPHICS CARD THAT WOULD EXPLAIN THE

The inverter works OK. Type in Google: Hp support. After that plug in the AC adapter and try turning it on. my review here When you turn on the laptop, it starts but the image on the screen is completely white right from the beginning.

No, create an account now. I don't think that you can replace your 12″ LCD with a 15″ LCD screen. Can you test the AC adapter with a voltmeter? The problem was the same.

Try reconnecting both modules. All they have to do is test the laptop with another working LCD screen. Fiddling around with the screen, repositioning it or moving it in anyway does not bring the video back. Good luck Dougsdad August 1, 2007 | My son dropped his laptop.

could I test my 15.4″ widescreen laptop with an older 15″ screen as long as the connectors are the same? It hasn't got a white screen but it has developed a thin vertical line an inch in from either side of the screen which is various colours depending upon the background Try reseating the cable.

I have tried removing the battery and running only on AC power, but it shows the same symptons.
