I have a Dell Inspiron 1525. I have it connected to a samsung lcd tv through the hdmi port to watch movies. Yesterday I connected the hdmi lead but the tv didn't detect a signal. So I tried a system reboot. The screen on the laptop lights up as in you can see the back light working but thats the limit to it. The laptop sounds like it is loading fine. dvd drive running hard drive working lights flashing etc. Anyone with any clues as to what the problem could be, and a possible solution would be very much appreciated.

Tony, so the problem is your laptop is turned on, but the laptop screen isn't displaying an image?

Disconnect the HDMI cable, first. Look across your top row of keys on the keyboard. Tap the key with an icon on it that looks like a computer screen, then wait a second and see if your screen lights up It may be the F8 key, not sure. On some models you have to hold down the Fn key while you tap the F8 key. That toggles your LCD screen on and off.

Hello, I need some advice with the hardware in my laptop. Someone gave me a laptop recently because the screen didn't work (they would rather buy a new laptop than pay to fix it). I fiddled around with it (took the top part of the screen apart and check connections, replaced inverter) and...

Dell Inspiron Mini 1018 Wireless not working
Hello, I recently decided to switch from Windows 7 to Ubuntu netbook 10.10. It hasn't been the best start, as I had trouble installing it, now trouble getting my wireless to work. I have just about given up, so I hope someone here can help, since I am really liking it other than the fact that I...
