Re: [linux-dell-laptops] Inspiron 5000e display identification?
- two great urls here for you where you can retrieve all the informations you
need on your laptop are:
here, you need to log in using your computer service tag
(this can be found on a sticker at the bottom of the notebook
and somewhere in the bios setup screen as well) and browse
thru documentation. this link will also provide you other
specific information about your very own computer.
no need to login here, but still a great basin of informations. and, wow, a
very whole _LOT_ of links about the i5ke and its monitor.
