Question about Dell Inspiron Mini 1012 Netbook
I turn on and all that the screen does is flickers on and off then goes black. Restart and the same things happens all over again.
It sounds as though the video card has gone bad in your system. There are a couple of things to try to eliminate the lcd.
If the LCD on the system shows no display or has other problems, here are some basic steps to take:
If you cannot get any video by connecting an external monitor then your motherboard will need to be replaced. The reason for the motherboard replacement is because your video card is soldered onto the motherboard.

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.
If you see a very dim image or black screen or flicking image on the LCD screen it means you have a backlight problem.
The buzzing sound is most likely the inverter problem.
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.

Insert the original Windows CD-ROM into the DVD-drive, and see if the computer will "boot" from that disk. If so, then it could be your 'C:' drive which is having the problem, and thus not "booting" your computer from it.

I believe I have found the problem with the 1525 that I am currently working on which has the same problem that you describe. Ultimately I think it's a problem with the inverter in the LCD. When the laptop is powered by battery the brightness is lower than full. When I plug in the power adapter the brightness goes to "full" and I hear a faint sizzle and the LCD's backlight goes off. Same as if you hold the Fn key and press the up arrow to brighten it, it will do the same thing when you reach near the full brightness. So for now I have fixed this problem by going in the Power Options and clicked on Adjust the display brightness on the left. Slide the slider to the left on the "plugged in" part and now when you plug it in it shouldn't make it go blank. I do want to note that I hear a faint buzz coming from the LCD when I plug it in. That must mean the inverter is faulty. WAY TO GO DELL!!!!!!
