Threaded View
I have a 1.5 year old Dell Inspiron 6000 laptop. I am running into a
display issue and I am not sure how to trouble shoot the same. This is
happenning after the lap top was roughed up a bit by the little
one :)The video appears to be squished and the aspect ratio appears to
have gone weird.The display is squished to the right side and there is
black unlit screen on 1/2 of the monitor.This is at startup (the
console which appears at POST check) ie in the Standard VGA mode (no
windows video driver setting)
As a last ditch effort I tinkered with changing display settings/
graphic properties after windows loaded up  and reset BIOS to factory
setting. This did not help .
Any ideas / pointers /suggestions ?

Sounds like one of the LCD grid boads went bad. If this problem does not
occur on an external monitor, it is probably a bad LCD. If you need a
replacement, just send me your service tag and I will find the correct one
for you.

To see if LCD ( probably) or system board/ connector, connect the VGA
connector to a desktop monitor and turn on laptop. Enable external monitor
by pressing the Fn key AND F8 together. If external monitor ok, then it's
an LCD problem.(good stuff sent from system board just not showing
properly on dislpay.)  If both bad, then system board issue.

Hey, If your laptop is still under warrenty then get the screen
replaced and do not tell the dell guys about your kid rough handling
the system. There is a known issue with insp 6000 & 6400 that the
screen goes bad after a period of 1 to 1.5 yrs.
If you are in US call 180062499896 and ask for the supervisor after
some time if the guy is not ready to replace stuff.
