      Hi Chuck
      'cntl' 'alt' 'enter' does nothing either. I get a message 'keyboard failure' then the computer boots up as normal

      Hi Chuck,
      Dragnet here. I am not totally familiar with this website so I don't know if U got my message yesterday. You asked me what happens if I tap F1 during startup. The answer is nothing. The computer boots up as normal. I still can't get access to the BIOS. I note you are running XP Home, can you access your BIOS? if yes, how?

      Hi Chuck!

      UHM...I actually tried to google this answer before writing you and didn't get much help ... I tired a different approach to the question and have a complete diagram of what to look for and how to install. I'm going to open my son's laptop and see what I see!

      Hi Chuck!

      Thank you so much for all your help! I ordered the inverter and am crossing my fingers. My experience has led me to this: I have another older laptop I purchased second hand for my son 18 months ago..after a few months the screen faded and I took it to a repair shop. They said the LCD was shot & it would cost more to fix it than it's worth. I asked if I could use aux monitor but they said no. Today I plugged it in and it works fine on aux. I tried to install new virus software and got the warning: "insufficient memory to run this software" My C: info says 15 free GB.

      I ran a test on Mcafee with virtual technician and it reported I have insuffcient memory and ram. Is it possible the repair shop removed it?

      I have another laptop I purchased at the same time for my daughter -- can I use the memory/ram from it in my son's laptop? If yes, how? Both Dell Latitude 120Ls.
