Question about Dell PC Laptops

1 Answer

My Dell Laptop computer screen went black.

I already tried taking the battery out and putting it back in. I was able to get the screen back for about an hour by flipping the the lid down and bringing it back up. But the screen only lasted a short time and I would have to do it again. Now it won't come back at all.

I have a Dell Inspiron 1545 Laptop. Just went to turn it on and you can hear it start but the screen is black. I tried the power cord/battery thing and it didn't work. Also I was reading about a magnet...


Hi cspeer1201,

Black screen is often caused by a defective screen. The easiest way to determine if you have a hardware or software problem is by performing a power drain. Please follow the steps below for additional instructions.

Power Drain:
1. Turn off the computer.

2. Unplug the AC adapter from the power outlet and take out the battery from the system.

3. Now, press the power button for about 15-20 seconds.

4. Put back the battery in and plug the AC adapter.

5. Turn on the system and try observing it.

--> If power drain did not work, you need to consult a repairman to have the LCD connector be replaced.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

I had been using my computer when all of the sudden screen went black and I could hear the windows shutting down. I thought maybe my battery was dead and I was not paying attention, so charged it. But when...


Do a hard reset by turning off the computer and removing the battery and unplug the AC adapter. Without any power source, press and hold the power button and put everything back after. Power on the computer again, if it does not work, try to connect your laptop to an external monitor. If it shows some display it means that the LCD monitor of your laptop has gone faulty.

HP Pavillion dv6700 - black screen


Do the following without the battery inserted.

Let the computer sit with no battery for 24 hours. Do not put the battery in at all. Try using your original memory stick ONLY, with no hard drive and see if it will POST. If it does, insert the hard drive and try again. Could be the new memory...

Another thing you can try is reseating the processor. Turn the ZIF screw, take the processor out (WATCH THE PINS!!) and put back in GENTLY. Leave the memory in the computer, hard drive removed, try to power on.

These models have been known for bad motherboards. Contact HP and arrange to send it in. If you do enough digging on HPs website, you'll find the service advisory.

Screen went black,but still on...turned it off...now won't start up.


All Dell laptops have a similar design flaw (in my opinion). The socket where the power cord plugs in to the laptop is probably loose. Use a toothpick or something to check it. Don't use anything metalic. If the socket moves easily then it has probably come loose from the motherboard. You may want to take the laptop to a computer repair shop to have the power socket soldered back to the motherboard. If you have the knowledge you can do this yourself but I don't suggest it. Laptops have a LOT of small parts. Hope this helps! Thanks!

Dell D600 Battery Causes Screen to go Black


Laptop batteries normally just last for a few years, depending on usage. If your battery is almost done, it may report a 'full' status, but just have the capacity to feed your laptop for a few minutes.

You may check this by disconnecting current while your laptop is started up. If low battery capacity is the cause, the same will happen within a few minutes.

Laptops normally go in standby on low battery, to avoid data loss.
