Question about Dell Inspiron Mini 1018 Netbook
I also bought a new battery as i was thinking its battery problem. please its there anything else i can do to fix the problem
If it's connected to a power socket & still the problem persists , the problem is probably with the power supply located in your laptop.

There is a small board that the power button is integrated into that connects to the motherboard. When this power board malfunctions it will cause this issue with the machine. It can, and quite often does, damage the motherboard when it malfinctions. You should take the machine in for a power board replacement and a diagnostic to make sure that the power board hasn't damaged the motherboard.

You need to remove keyboard first, and cmos battery is right under it if I'm not mistaken.
Black screen issue I believe is related to video card. Anyways try to update bios too.

Unseat and reseat the memory in the laptop one stick at a time in each slot one at a time. Turn on the laptop after each reseat of memory.
If that doesn't work then take out the hard drive and then the dvd drive.
Turn the laptop on again and if you still can't get video on the screen then the motherboard is defective and would need to be replaced.

I believe I have found the problem with the 1525 that I am currently working on which has the same problem that you describe. Ultimately I think it's a problem with the inverter in the LCD. When the laptop is powered by battery the brightness is lower than full. When I plug in the power adapter the brightness goes to "full" and I hear a faint sizzle and the LCD's backlight goes off. Same as if you hold the Fn key and press the up arrow to brighten it, it will do the same thing when you reach near the full brightness. So for now I have fixed this problem by going in the Power Options and clicked on Adjust the display brightness on the left. Slide the slider to the left on the "plugged in" part and now when you plug it in it shouldn't make it go blank. I do want to note that I hear a faint buzz coming from the LCD when I plug it in. That must mean the inverter is faulty. WAY TO GO DELL!!!!!!
