Dell Vostro 5470 Wont Turn On Not Even Power Led Blink

You don't have to remove the whole display panel, it may stay attached to the laptop. i am assuming the water made its way into the inverter somehow but am not sure. Mouse works, keyboard does not. Then, some weeks ago, I started experiencing another annoying problem: basically, at random periods, the screen starts flickering…in other words, brightness increases and diminishes itself just a little bit for some check over here

What could this be? But first,BEFORE YOU DO ANYTHING POWER RELATED, REMOVE YOUR HARD DRIVE, DOCK IT AND SAVE EVERYTHING YOU NEED!Ok, now, if you have another laptop that is the same model, try the PM me if you're running the same thing and have accomplished it, I'd love to know.

Ubuntu detects the printer but there are no drivers available for it. Workaround: install feisty then upgrade rather than doing a fresh gusty install. Many thanks stoodleysnowNovember 21st, 2007, 10:27 AMTry a different monitor.

After some research, it sounded like an inverter problem as it usually works for about 30 seconds after a reboot then goes black and an external display works perfectly fine. This is Ubuntu Oneric Ocelot (11.10), as well as any distro based on Ubuntu (Mint for example). and there is no way to make it be recognized. Issue #3 Cannot dim/brighten the screen with the hardware keyboard controls.

fn+esc (Stand by) must be pressed first. You can search for the whole display assembly (LCD screen, inverter, cable, plastic covers, etc…) If you can find one, you simply unplug the old display assembly and install a new I had a customer with a Compaq laptop with a nearly identical lcd screen that was cracked. I would try replacing the inverter first.

UPDATE: Updated BIOS, 2.10, and now it resumes after suspend. You'll have to figure out how to remove the inverter and replace it with a new one. I then managed to run Gnome classic and installed XFCE and this was ok but I don't prefer it. ACPI: DMI BIOS year==0, assuming ACPI-capable machine This is the error displayed, and after that the Live CD won't do anything.

Try replacing the video cable. I think there is no accelerated driver for 7500? Totally black. suggest you go to a local thrift store with $5.00 US in hand and pick up a spare key board..

After letting it dry thoroughly, we tested the computer. Where can I buy these parts? I'd love to be able to do the repair myself and save a few $$s but I've never worked on my laptop and I have all the files for my company http://fixmyacer.com/dell-vostro/dell-vostro-5470-ram-upgrade.html MERCI bibasAugust 18th, 2007, 03:47 AMGraphics card ATI Raedon xpress 200 Fiesty lagitupAugust 20th, 2007, 03:10 AMI just installed ubuntu and my x-fi is not recognizing.

Do you have a white sticker glued to the video cable somewhere close to the connector which plugs into the system board? but when i disassembled the unit and reseated the display cable, the display was divided or tiled into 4 parts and when i tried reseating it again the display was totally Only the card reader does not work - have not tried to fix that yet ... Usually if it does show up at all, it just shows a mouse and not the touchpad itself (I don't have a mouse connected and never have). I don't think it's a

Please, point me to a Laptop Hardware Incompatibility List so I can "show" future buyers that this computer won't work in certain ways. Have you ever seen the reddish tint caused by an inverter or is it always the backlight?

At what point do you decide it's working fine and can be deployed? It also comes back on if I close the display lid and reopen it, but only for 30 secs. Cannot hibernate or suspend. For some reason it's not providing enough power for the inverter board and because of that the backlight will not light up.
