The fan on my Dell Inspiron 710m spins on start up and then stops. Should it? Does it go on intermittently or should it be running all the time? Thanks.

    Thanks for the clarification. I'll keep an eye on it. It already started and stopped because I wasn't doing much.

The fans should be running all the time they only change speeds based on your computers cooling needs but it should never really stop.

It will run intermittently. It turns on to cool your laptop once the cpu reaches a certain temperature and turns off when it cools it down. It does this to save energy and battery life.

When turning on my Dell710M, I just get a black screen

Start with the basics, take out all the removable items (Battery, Modem, RAM, Drives, Wireless card) see if anything changes powering the system on via AC. If no change, then the motherboard is the most likely failure point. On my system, I had a broken AC plug (Adapter connector wobbled in the plug) and eventually the battery wouldn't change and system would not run on AC. I had to replace the motherboard to resolve.
