    When i recvd my comp i could close the lid and the lcd would go off, now it will not. i have not done a fresh reinstall(not interested). I think it is a driver issue...any ideas which driver i would need to reinstall?

    its an issue with your power settings.

    go to quickset, gaming, then the power schemes tab, all the stuff is there

    if you have ATI video card, then you need to set "ati hot poller" in services.msc to automatic (reboot)

    Well, if its a M1710, he probably has an Nvidia GPU.

    Roaddy is probably right - you'll have to play with your power settings to make the screen go off. A restart might help if you haven't done that in a while.

    LOL, yeah, sorry. I get the M1710 mixed up with the E1705 since the numbering is so similar. Ignore what i said.

    See my post in this thread. My guess is that you did the same thing as me - it worked when you got it, but you reformatted the system and proceeded to install a non-Dell video card driver.
