It sounds like the Video card has suffered a catastrophic failure. Remove & go to a parts store or order from someone like Frys.com or ebay or Tigerdirect.com If you don't know how to use someones computer to look up "How to change the Video Card on a Desktop PC" & you will find a video of how to.

SOURCE: Dell Inspiron Desktop PC won't start up

Hello.

Try holding down the delete key or f2 key while starting.
Should bring you to bios page.
Reset all to factory defaults.save and exit.

Next.you may have a bad video device or monitor.Since you can hear the pc running but have no screen im thinking its more a video issue.

Try taking all the power from the pc away,unplug from the wall for a min ot two.Then try again.

SOURCE: Hi, my Dell Vostro 200 monitor isn't working; when

Your monitor is most likely fine. That message is the monitor telling you it's not getting any video signal from the computer.

If you're hearing all the sounds that go with a normal startup (usually a beep from the motherboard, then hard drive activity, finally the normal Windows startup sound through the speakers), and seeing that message, then you may have a monitor problem. You can try another monitor as a test.

The trouble is probably that the computer is turning on, but not actually starting up. This may be due to power supply, memory, processor or motherboard problems. Or one of the drives or expansion cards connected to the motherboard may be keeping the system from starting.

Make sure the memory modules are firmly seated in their sockets, and disconnect everything else but the power supply. If the motherboard, processor and memory are working, the system will start and you'll see something on the monitor. Then you can start reconnecting parts and see when the problem returns.

SOURCE: Power Save mode on, can not use computer

If your computer is indeed running, simply unplug your monitor from the wall, and then plug it back in. This will bring your monitor out of power save mode instantly.

SOURCE: My XPS 200 keeps shutting down and power light blinks

If it does it when it "gets loud" it is obviously overheating. That will cause it to do lots of things including shut down-it may also render your HDD/system inoperative.
Just out of curiosity, have you opened it up and cleaned the dust bunnies out??

Testimonial: "Right on with the diagnosis. Dell even mentioned "dust bunnies" as a possible cause."

I tried to clean the dell vostro 1014 fan, after i assembled the fan and turned on the laptop it appear black screen with dim image on my laptop screen, When I plug in external monitor it shows boot s


It sounsd like your GPU may be BGA chip and would require a re-flow/re-ball if your laptop shows graphical distortion on both monitors.

However I would first try taking the laptop apart again and double check you have connected everything properly.

My Dell monitor goes to sleep right after windows xp starts to load and it won't come on after that. my computer is still running but the monitor is a sleep. I have hit f8 and f12 with nothing happening....


Go into safe mode
Under settings, control panel, power options set "turn off monitor to never
reboot

I think this is not a sleep problem but the incorrect monitor settings were set. This will cause the screen to go black when the OS comes up. Boot in safe mode and change the display settings
to 640x480
OR
in safe mode, delete your monitor. When you reboot it will load a default monitor and you should be OK

Okay, so everytime i start my Vostro 200(Windows XP) it always shows a blue screen that tells me to restart but it never works, what do i do?


Try starting in SAFE MODE. You may have a virus that kills the booting.

Hit F8 at the right time during booting to get into safe mode.

Dell Inspiron 1525 Laptop..the screen goes almost black after 5 minutes.


The screen goes black while in normal mode right? So try to boot in safe mode (power on then keep tapping F8 then select safe mode). Check if still happens in safe mode.

If screen does not goes black in safe mode it means there might be a software or driver causes problem when running in normal mode. You can try the following (update your anti virus software then run a full system scan, uninstall the video driver then download and install the latest one, uninstall any previous windows update or you can system restore to the time when it was working fine).

If the screen goes black even in safe mode they try connecting the laptop to an external monitor if still goes black, if yes then absolutely no issues with the LCD panel. You can try (uninstall and reinstall the video driver if still persist then this might end up replacing video card or motherboard, but before doing that update the BIOS first).

If does not goes black in ext monitor then the LCD panel might causes the problem. Reseat the LCD cable or inverter if you can.

Dell Vostro 200 won't boot


From your description you have corrupted the boot files of the machine

Try hitting F8 repeatedly when you power the machine up that should put you into safe mode

If you can get there go for a system restore

If that fails there is a program called ERD Commander which was written by a company called Winternals but is now under Mocrosofts control.

That replaces the normal OS and allows you to do repairs

Make sure that the OS disk you are using is a bootable version not just a collection of files
