sounds like your boot record on hard drive is bad or hard drive turn on computer and hit like f10 or f12 it will tell you right after asus screen what key to hit for restore, if this doesn,t work hard drive is bad. hope this was helpful
Power off the laptop.
Power it on and tap F2 at the Dell logo. check if the screen is sidways in the BIOS or not. If it looks normal in the BIOS restart the computer and go to control panel and uninstall the Video drivers. Restart the computer. It will boot up with basic drivers. Install the video drivers and the issue should be fixed.
If the display is side ways even in the BIOS try a BIOS update from support.dell.com and if you dont have an update reflash the BIOS with teh version availbale on the website.
Try going into your BIOS by starting the notebook and tapping F10, when the screen comes up then tap once on F9, and choose to save default settings, and tap F10 again and exit. One other thing you can try is to connect your notebook to another screen or another PC so that you can see it is your video card or your screen. If you are having problems with your video card it will not show up on an external screen either, but if its your screen then you should be able to get video on another screen. If you do not get a screen in the BIOS screen then I would go to Radio Shack and have your video card tested.
It could be a couple of things, but it seems most likely that it is the RAM Memory that is causing this. You might need to add more. I have seen this before with one of my customers, we upgraded his ram from 1.5 to 2 gbs, and his games/windows no longer crashed
it sounds possibly that it is going into hibernation. a single press of the power button should bring it back alive.
also feel the bottom of the laptop.... if it is getting close to meltdown you need to clean the dust and dirt from the heatsinks. the fan area may appear to be clear but all the junk gets blown against copper heat sinks so you need to remove the covers to get at it.
