    Do you see anything on the screen at any time when you start the computer?

    Describe all the lights that come on (and stay on or flash).

    If you look very close, or you shine a flashlight from the top of the screen do you see anything?

I have the Dell 1525. The screen is black with only the cursor appearing. Please advise

Check to see if you have the machine switched out to a stand alone monitor. This is a feature on many lap tops that lets you re-direct the signal out to a larger monitor, or if your monitor fails you can display the computer info on another screen. This feature is engaged by holding down the Fn key and tapping teither the F4, or F6 key on many lap tops. This feature can be toggled by both displaying at the same time or switched to the stand alone or the Lap top.

The other cause is that the machine has malfunctioned usually because of the CPU failure and there is nothing to boot the machine up.

Dell inspiron 1525 shows black screen after dell logo?

The computer cant find a bootable device. Either your boot sector on your Hard drive is gone/damaged (most likely a virus) or the Hard drive failed. Start with booting with your windows disk and try to do a repair installation.

When I first turn on laptop you see the dell window for a split second then a black screen that says " disk read error press ctrl+alt+del to restart. Nothing works to bring the computer past this.

Please try the following DIY
1.Please go to bios by tapping either F2 or specific key for your machine and check the boot priority.set the first priority for the odd and second for hdd.
2.if then also it is not booting issue might be with the HDD but once check with the reinstallation of OS.
