RavenChild Posted June 24, 2006 Report Share Posted June 24, 2006 I have a Inspiron 9400 / E1705 with a nVidia GeForce Go 7900GS 256Mb. ID: 298. Running 188.8.131.52 Drivers. These are the only ones I have gotten to work with Aero. I am running Vista Beta 2. I am unable to have the screen turn off when I close the lid. Setting the time in the Power Options does not have any effect either. In short: The screen will not shut off in any way (apart from shutdown/suspend/hibernate). I have used Vista on this laptop before and did not have these problems. I then installed XP Pro SP2 because some of my development apps would not work under vista. I just recently decided XP was a lost cause and went back to vista. I mainly did this to get rid of the screen closing problem. The video driver install went fine but now my lid still does not cause my screen to turn off and vista is also unable to turn off my screen after setting a time in the power options. Because of this I am starting to think this could be a problem with the hardware and not just the software. Anyone else have any problems such as this or any solutions? Throwing any of the possible search terms for this into google provides no useful results. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
