Question about Dell Inspiron 1300 Notebook

1 Answer

Screen goes blank soon after switching on

Hi,
I have a Dell Inspiron 1300. It worked fine until yesterday.
When I switch on it starts as normal for the first few seconds
ie I can see the F2 Setup and F12 options. Then I get the single blue banner with www.dell.com at the top and then a brief message flashes up
'Loading PBR descriptor.....done....' but then the screen goes blank.

Any suggestions would we welcome - I have gone into Setup and done disgnostic test but all seems ok.
Thanks
Robert

Try "Safe Mode" (holding F8 key on boot and selecting "Save Mode"), then run diagnostics and an up to date (virus definitions) Anti-Virus full scan.
If Safe Mode is not accessible then you may want to consider a format and clean install by booting to your Windows (?) CD.

    Robert,
    Yes, sounds like a format (NTFS Normal and not NTFS Quick) and clean install of Windows will either fix this problem or point to another cause (I doubt another cause but can't be certain). I believe the format (NTFS Normal) and clean install should get your PC back to good operating status.
    Good luck

Hi there,

Black screen is often caused by a defective screen. The easiest way to determine if you have a hardware or software problem is by performing a power drain. Please follow the steps below for additional instructions.

Power Drain:
1. Turn off the computer.

2. Unplug the AC adapter from the power outlet and take out the battery from the system.

3. Now, press the power button for about 15-20 seconds.

4. Put back the battery in and plug the AC adapter.

5. Turn on the system and try observing it.
--> If power drain did not work, you need to consult a repairman to have your screen be checked for possible damage.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Blank screen


If, when it does start and you see normal screens your version of Windows is probably corrupt or you have some type of virus. I would recommend wiping your hard drive and reinstall Windows.

Dell Inspiron 1300 blank monitoe


Hello,

the problem might be from the screen or from the screen inverter.

Connect your laptop to an external monitor and try again.

If there is a display, then its obvious that the problem is from screen or screen inverter of your laptop.

Good luck.
