Question about Dell Inspiron B130 Notebook
My wife's computer was working on a recent trip, but spontaneously began with the screen going blank after the windows xp logo and its action bar showed up. With repeated booting with problem solving efforts the screen remains essentially blank except for a brief (less than a second) flash of the Dell logo and none of the usual boot chimes or any other noises are audible. However, in a well-lit room it is possible to see a shadow on the screen if viewed on a tangent that suggests that the booting has occurred. No cooling fan noises are audible either.
If you are seeing an shadow image on the LCD and you have video on an external monitor, then the LCD backlight has failed. The LCD will need to be replaced
I googled B130 LCD's and they generally run $125 to $200

Well he stole my thunder but, you never did hook it up to a monitor. But i will say that with the computer being so old the cooling fan may have died but, you really are better off getting a new computer. My brother just bought a pretty good one for his girlfriend for $500 it was a reman. with a factory warranty. Just keep an eye out and you will find a good deal. This is also an opportunity to get a system that will be able to handle the newer releases of windows and other software.
