    also try hitting the F5 and F6 keys, they are used to toggle the screen in projector mode which will cause it not to light up..

Dell inspiron 1100 laptop screen won't light up


Sounds like a back light problem, power reset it, pull out the battery and ac adapter and then hold the power button for 1 minute, then replace the power cord and battery and start it up, if it doesn't work try calling dell to see if you can get it repaired under warranty if it is out of warranty take it to a shop.
