My screen on my dell inspiron 1520 has gone black


You've lost your desktop display.
The first thing I would do is to start the computer in safe mode. Once there, do a system restore back to the time that it worked.
I would also, just to be safe, do your disk management tasks like checking your hard drive for errors and running defrag.

Hold down CTRL and ALT keys and press UP arrow to turn it back to normal. For the screen size, right click on an empty space on Desktop and select Properties then go to Settings tab. On screen resolution move the bar to adjust the screen size to your desired one.

Sounds like a Registry problem .. maybe after some Microsoft auto-update failed to properly install ???

You could try 'rolling back' the last couple of auto-updates ...
