    Es LCD screen not working - Dell XPS M1730 - Help Please!!!

    Hi,

    I recently re - installed windows onto my Dell XPS M1730 laptop, also installing the drivers and utilities CD and the Media Direct 3.5 software. The latter I installed correctly after reading up about it, so I know that is not the problem, I have installed that correctly.

    The problem is that the LCD screen on the laptop, for people who don't know what I am talking about, it is the little black screen above the keyboard which is displaying the CPU and RAM details, on the right in the following picture:

    That screen usually shows details like the time, game stats etc but know it just has XPS in white writing permanently. There was a dell direct option in my program list which I could click on and change the sequence of what was shown on the screen but I cant seem to find that now either.

    Can anybody help me sort this little problem out, I would really appreciate it .

    Kind regards,

    Mark

    You need to instal the driver for it.
    http://support.dell.com/support/down...&catid=&impid= under the Application tab, look at the Logitech Auxiliary display.

    Thanks a lot mate, sorted out now

    I thought I had to download one of the applications from that page but I wasn't sure which was the correct one. I appreciate the help with that, thanks again.

    No problemo, glad it solved it.
    I rarely use th LCD screen so I disabled it, since it`s just using CPU cycles.
