i just replaced my LCD screen, and compared to my last screen this one seems cloudy or whitish. i tried messing with the brightness and contrast, but it didnt help much, where do i go to adjust the other settings on the screen? thanks.
also, i know its OT for this forum, but after replacing my screen and my palmrest recently, i noticed that when i turned my computer back on the system bios clock had reset itself and it asked me to adjust it, and now when i turn the computer on, the dell logo and the starting windows logos and progress bars are very small and in the middle of the screen instead of taking up the full screen, anyone know how to solve this? it goes back to full screen when windows starts, but id like to fix it anyway just because im curious why it did that. thanks in advance.
Pressing FN-F7 should resolve the small screen booting problem.
(This key switches between streching image to fill the LCD or using black border. As during booting the res is only 640 x 480 it needs to be streched to fill the screen).
As for the brightness. Did you replace the LCD with the exact same type as you had before? If not, it may be incompatible with the video card causing some problems as dells video card are specifically tuned to the screesn that go with them). If it is the same screen, check the connectors and if the screen itself was dissasmbled, the backlight, foils, reflective layers, etc... if they are present and correctly placed
