You need a new lcd screen & while you're at it replace the inverter. There's no other option. Check ebay for the parts.

My computer had not been used in a couple of weeks and when I turned it back on it started beeping and the monitor will come on but cannot see screen

The problem maybe the RAM, it is faulty or just needs reseating to make proper electrical contact.
Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up then remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you.

I have a Dell Inspirion 3000. Was working fine, but when I went to start it up, The Dell sign would pop up for about a half second, then the screen went black. You can barley see the scrren, not enough to...

most likely its a GPU issue since your external monitor is affected as well, since GPU for laptop is connected to the board you may need replacement for it. if you are still in warranty with dell they will send out a technician to replace the whole motherboard. if not they may charge you for it.

Inspirion laptop 1521. monitor stopped working.

The problem is the inverter, possibly a bad connection or a dry solder joint.

To check this remove the screen bezel (plastic screen surround). At the bottom of the screen you will see an elongated piece of circuit board with wires coming from either end covered by frosted plastic.
That is the inverter, check the connections on the inverter (both sides) and power the laptop up to check the display, to remove it gently pull the plugs from each end and remove the screw from the middle and pull the board away.
Look on the back of the inverter itself for a copper coil, if you re-solder the solder points around the coil you may find it works again as components that suffer from extreme heat the solder joints dry causing bad connections, re-floating the solder solves the problem in 90% of cases.

Good luck.

The montitor goes black and/or the system shuts down after only minutes of use. a detailed test of the system did not reveal any problems.

Dear rdg5980,
Try to replace the battery (if it is a Laptop PC) or try to check the hinge or rainbow-cable that connect your Power to Monitor screen, it might be the socket little bit loosen.

Laptop inspirion 6000 screen went black, can only see shadows of windows but, it works. Please help. Thanks London

London the only option is to replace the display or the back light itself. If money is tight you then can use an external display but that does limit your mobility. I had a D610 go out on me but it would work if hooked up to an external monitor. Once I replaced the display it was fine.
