Hi. Recently I cracked my Dell 1018's original LCD with 1024x600 resolution. So I decided to upgrade my resolution when I order a new panel. I looked at eBay and ordered an item called "10.1"LCD SCREEN For Dell Inspiron Mini 10(1012) 1018 WXGA HD LED netbook NEW"
However, when I installed it, my computer rejected to boot by beeping for 8 times. I could successfully pass the LCD color test by pressing D in the boot sequence, but I could not boot normally, and I couldn't see anything on the screen.
Now all I can do is to connect my Dell Mini to an external monitor and boot it up by this way.
By the way, I also cannot use an higher resolution than 1024x600 on external monitor too.
I sent a message to the seller in eBay, he/she told me that I could need an alternative "high resolution cable" to connect my new LCD panel to my computer. So I called Dell customer service in Turkey and they told me that there was no such a cable. But the man I talked to was not educated about netbooks, so I could not justify if my netbook could handle this resolution or not.
As far as I know, GMA 3150 should permit up to 1920x1080, but I am totally confused at this point and I don't know what should I do.
