Hi, recently I broke my Dell Laptop screen. Upon replacing it with a new one, it seems that my laptop isn't detecting the freshly installed screen at all. I know the laptop is booting up, because when i connect it to my TV with HDMI it works fine, but I know that the screen isn't detected because it shows my TV as the primary display.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks :)

Hiya, thanks for your answer! No need to do that, managed to fix it by switching out the screen while the laptop was on. Worked a charm.

Hey I'm having similar issues. Actually extremely similar. What was your original thought? I'm not about to attempt what the last guy attempted as I may not be so lucky and short circuit something... Is there some sort of reset I'm missing after installing? Thanks much!

Hiya!

What I did was pretty risky, but I booted the computer up while attached to the TV - once it turned on and I was on my desktop, I connected the screen then. It came on the moment I touched the video cable to the port.

(Maybe not the best idea to try this, but it worked perfectly for me and I've had no screen problems since then)
