My Cousin's fiancee has the Dell mentioned in the title, and we cannot access his BIOS. The internal LCD has died. The backlight and inverter still function, but no image is produced on the screen (I.E. dead screen). He has since connected it to an external display, a Dell 20 or 22 inch monitor via VGA. Now, here's the problem... When we turn the computer on, all of the lights flash, etc but nothing appears on the monitor until Windows has begin to load. No BIOS, no POST, nada. We tried Fn+F8 (the model's display switcher) to no avail. Perhaps we didn't do it right, I don't know, to be honest. If I can't get the BIOS to appear on his monitor, can I use the LCD from my Toshiba Satellite, (temporarily) to gain access to his BIOS so I can make the necessary adjustments, or will it fail too? I checked eBay for panel info. Both have 30 pin data cables, and 2 pin power cables. I'm assuming that the screen should work, even temporarily, right? I appreciate any and all info you might be able to provide. Thanks.
