Bad Dell Inspiron Laptop Screen

By alkaline ·
Just recently the display on my laptop has gone flaky. Only half the screen displays, the other half is black. If I close and reopen the monitor it will display in full again only to fade to black within seconds. Any answers?

It sounds like the cable that goes to the screen is damaged and needs replacing.

Try trouble shooting

Try hooking up to an external monitor. If the problem repeats, your video card/driver has likely fried. If the problem is resolved, your screen is likely fried. Either way, you will know what needs to be fixed.

Good luck!
