Question about Dell Vostro Computers & Internet
Only the cursor can be seen. It does take awhile to go off when I shut it down so I am assuming that I just can't see what is actually on the screen.
Have you tried updating the Graphics drivers? Some driver issues have been reported with Windows Vista and 7 coming out of resume and most are fixed by updating to the latest drivers?

SOURCE: Screen goes blank at start up
Its failing to go through the full boot process. Try pressing F8 on boot until the boot option screen comes up and then select safe mode. Follow this though until you are given the option of using system restore instead of safe mode. take that option by clicking on the NO button. Restore the machine to a date some time a few days previous to the fault developing.
If that fails then put in any OS disc and boot from it. select R at the first options screen, follow it through and then select the C drive option. Just hit enter when asked for admin password.
now type chkdsk /r (copy and paste this to be sure). let it run and then reboot and see what happens

it is possible that the latch is sticking. located under the lid.
try pressing the small button, with a small blunt screwdriver.
Failing this, adjust the settings in My Computer/Control Panel/Display settings or Similar. If they,re adjusted to hibernate/sleep/shut-down computer, when i close the lid.
this is where the problem will be. Try changing to Do-Nothing or similar.
Thankyou For Using Fixya.

Remove and re-seat your RAM cards. Remove your battery but leave the power supply attached. Try to start. If this doesn't work, your motherboard has died and needs to be replaced. Not a do-it-yourself job unfortunately.
