    There are multiple posts from this user for the same issue. It has already been diagnosed in another post as a Windows driver issue since the display works with another OS.

    Please only post once for single issue and provide all details or add info to the same post. There were several posts with different descriptions and partial information.

Could be a burned out backlight bulb. If you can see some shadows in the background (hold a bright light close to the LCD screen), that's your problem. If you live in a big city, you can find a PC repair shop to fix.

If it's not the backlight, it could be the motherboard or the LCD inverter or the LCD.
Hook the laptop up to an external monitor to see if it comes on. If yes, it's a problem with the LCD or LCD inverter. If no, sell the parts on ebay and get another laptop as it' a motherboard or other issue.

Replacing an LCD with a used one from ebay, is really pretty easy. Generally less than 10 screws, and a couple of connections. search the web for the service manual for your laptop and it will provide directions.

My screen comes up black, but when i hook up another monitor, it displays normally. Is my screen bad?


Try attaching an external monitor to the laptop & see if you could get any display on it. If this is successful, then you might have either a faulty LCD cable or screen inverter board.
The LCD cable transfers data signal from the motherboard & video card to the LCD screen. It also supplies high voltage DC power to the screen inverter board. The screen inverter board works as a power supply for the backlight lamp mounted inside the LCD screen. It converts low voltage DC power to high voltage AC power needed for the backlight lamp

My dell inspiron b130 boots up but monitor is black


After your laptop boots up into windows, hold down the Fn key and as your doing that press the F8 button that should switch the output from the vga connetor to the LCD screen on the laptop.

If you still don't get video then you'll have to reseat the LCD cable from the back of the LCD screen to where it connects to the motheboard.

If you still don't get video then its either going to be a bad LCD or a bad motherboard.

Shutdown laptop ,turned it back on this morning and the screen is black,no picture, nothing. battery is fully charged. the touch inductive panel and multi-media buttons are all on.


There is only 2 reason why the screen is black. Your LCD backlight is broken or your LCD backlight inverted need to change. Bring your laptop to expert technician to replace that.

You could have a defective screen - a defective inverter or a CCFL lamp.
To determine if you have a LCD screen or video card problem, read this and follow the instructions.

Defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom:

  • Screen flashs on red/pink and off.
  • Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal.
  • Picture flickering with dim display.
  • Picture flickering on and off.
All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp

Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power it up, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight.

Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

Screen will not stay on


The first thing to check is the LCD or Screen inverter. It is a small board that at the bottom of screen. You have to open up the plastic part of the screen or LCD. Usually this part goes bad.

I am sending you a link of a sample from ebay,

Dell lcd display


if it is just half of the screen and the rest is black- you need a new screen. If it is half the screen all squished together (you can see the whole desktop) you need to reload the video driver
