    The safe mode does not work. I am sure it is a virus problem. Is there any other suggestion?

What would cause a Dell Inspiron 580 that powers on but display nothing on the screen?


Some types of memory will only work as matched pairs, try only using two sticks of the same type, Otherwise check your memory and graphics card are seated properly, remove the power cable to the monitor for a few minutes then plug in, check you haven't loosened the monitor cable. Do you get anything onscreen? if you get start up then check BIOS see what memory it reports & the graphics settings. Its most likely something loose or the memory.

Screen Goes Blank


Ive seen this on other monitors. Look for a 1 and 2. Some monitors do NOT auto detect a signal, and this one might not. Look for a way to set the monitor from Digital input to VGA input. Try that and see.

Blank screen


See lets isolate the fault...As u have checked the monitor cable is fine,the monitor is fine and the video card is also fine..I believe you have tried these 3 components on another pc and it has worked fine..Rit? Now the last thing is first download the latest BIOS update (Find the current BIOS version number,Press F1 when Pc starts,on Main menu u can find BIOS number ; From ur other PC,check the Internet for BIOS or ROM updates keeping in mind the BIOS version number u have noted down ;Download and install the BIOS updates to a CD ..copy the BIOS files to the hard disk, and then restart the computer with the CD still in the drive...That should work..2ndly,I would update my video card driver from the internet using my other computer in the same way..
