Try pressing "esc". If it doesn't help call the dell technical support hotline. Or ask the shop.

Good luck

Inspiron5150 don't come on and I have a blank screen and underscore....


Turn off the system. Remove the battery and AC adapter. Press the power button for 20 seconds.

Put the battery on and try to turn on. If still same problem persists. Put the AC adapter on and tun on the system.

Then try to tun on the system in safe mode by pressing F8.

If this does not help. Try checking for the diagnostic lights in the Num Lock, Caps Lock and Scroll Lock LED's. This will indicate any kind of hardware issue.

Please do comment on the LED's if they are flashing in any pattern.

Try to reseat the Memory and hard drive if possible. This will resolve the issue.

Dell inspiron 5150 dark screen, faint image in background


If it showed a pinkish tint on the screen before it went out it could be the backlite. If you can see a faint screen when you turn the room lights out it chuld be the inverter. Inverters are cheap ... a used one for around $8 on ebay. Try that first. Make sure that you buy the EXACT model that is presently in your laptop.
