dell c600 does not power up
Hi, I have a dell c600 motherboard which does not power up. I purchased a new motherboard on ebay and got the laptop going so am now left with a...
Wow, Google really is my friend. I just entered "Inspiron 6000 display rash" and it brought me right to it.
Here's what it says:
"Though the Inspiron 6000's 15.4-inch wide-screen display comes standard with a WXGA (1,280x768) native resolution, you can also select WSXGA+ (1,600x1,024) or WUXGA (1,920x1,200) resolutions.

I'm sure it's been fixed because a lot of people say they love their 6000 screens.
I've had an Inspiron 8600, 600m, 700m, 4000, 4100, and Labreastude D510, so I knew right away that my 6000's display was defective because it was far inferior to any other laptop displays I have had.
