Re: no screen visible
Run win xp boot cd and access recovery console... run chkdsk... hit y when it asks you to... another way of doing this is right click on ur hard drive and choose properties.. tools... disk check... choose both the options asking for complete scan etc.. itll then say that scan will be done when windows is restarted.. say ok.. restart...

Try turning the key on for two seconds, don't turn to the start position yet, then turn it off, then back on for two seconds, then try to start it. It sounds like you are losing fuel pressure and by cycling the key, you will be re-pressurizing the system. It's usually caused by a faulty fuel pressure regulator that is not holding pressure properly.
This will not set a diagnostic code usually,and on the rare occasion it does, the code will read as a "lean" problem.......not enough fuel
Maybe the lcd screen is going bad. Try an external monitor. if the external monitor works fine then your lcd screen on the laptop is going bad. If the external monitor behaves the same way, then the Video Card on the computer is going bad.
Plug in an external monitor and see if thedisplay shows up on it. It can be any kind of monitor even the old big fat crtmonitors as long as it has a vga cable to connect to your computer's vgaport. If so that proves your video card is ok. The video will showon most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systemswill require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold downthe FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thruF12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will havethe icon of a display.
Please restart your machine and keep tapping F12 key from the keyboard
It will display a menu with options
Press enter on DIAGNOSTICS option
Let's confirm if the hard-drive is not gone bad
It will confirm if all tests are passed, you don't necessarily need to run the extended memory tests
Or you can also check in F2 menu (BIOS menu) during reboot
if the Hard-drive/SSD is detected on your XPS 13 notebook
Try to load BIOS defaults too.
if the system doesn't boot past the Dell Screen, the most likely issue is the hard drive.
See if you can bring up the F12 menu at boot and run HDD diags.
If you can't do that and have the dell resource cd, you can try booting to that CD, and run diags there
Run a test on the system first and also update video and bios.
Drivers can be downloaded from www.support.dell.com
Running a test can be done by pressing FN+power button and turn on the system. Fn is the key found on the left lower side of the system otherwise press F12 when you start and the system and see a dell logo, go to diagnostics and run a diags and let me know if you get any error messages
The system may not be able to refresh after the defrag. Press ctrl-alt-del and try to turn the computer off from the task manager. If task manager wont popup. You can turn the computer off by holding the power button for 10 seconds or until it turns off.
To prevent file corruption which could be caused by the improper shutdown which you will have to do. Don't forget to tap F8 repeatedly when you restart the computer. Start tapping after you push the power button to turn it on. Choose 'last known good configuration' using the arrow keys on the keyboard. Press enter. And wait until the computer reboots. It should come back to normal.
If it still locks up. Run diagnostics and check if your hard drive is still ok. Turn the computer off. Tap F12 when you turn it back on. Choose diagnostics. If you get an error for 'DSt short test' call dell, so they can give you options for replacement. If all the tests passed, your software is corrupted. Post back what happens.
