Our laptop has been idle for a while (months) and would not power up. Ended up replacing the motherboard. Now it sounds like it has powered up but nothing on the screen?? Have rechecked all connections but nothing. Appreciate any suggestions.

When Windows logo disappear on the I-INC, do you still see it on the Laptop monitor?
All laptops have function keys to switch the screen between the external monitor (I-INC) and laptop monitor. On your laptop, it is Fn+F8 key. Press them once and wait for 3 seconds, it will switch the image between 2 monitors (external monitor ONLY, laptop monitor ONLY, and both).
During start-up, do not close the laptop cover. Because it may put your laptop into a stand-by mode and turn off the screen. You need to modify this Power Option setting within the Control Panel.
This is generally due to a failed component in the power management system on the motherboard. I suggest that you take it to a service center in your area to have the exact problem area traced. Power issues dealing with the PM system can be created by several different components, some are replaceable, and some require motherboard replacement to fix, so, this will be an issue that will be near impossible to diagnose on line.
There is no exact name for this main board. All you need to know when replacing the main board is that the Insp 1100 and The Insp 1150 main board will fit. If you are going to change out the board, I suggest going with the board from an Inspiron 1150, it is an upgrade for the Insp 1100, and has built in wireless.
I also have a dell inspiron 1100. It seems that it has overheated, and your motherboard or CPU has fried, or died from the heat. What you say sounds like a motherboard failure
There is currently an ongoing lawsuit. Also, take my advice, and instead of trying to fix it, you're better of getting a new computer, as the dell is getting old anways. I spent some extra cash and got myself a vaio.
laptops are very specific about what you can replace parts with. Take it back to where you bought it and ask to exchange for a 14 " If you want to see a bigger picture on that laptop the only way is to plug in an external monitor; in the back there should be a plug for an external monitor. Plug this in to any computer monitor. You will have to adjust the resolution.
