The screen on my Lattitude 120L won't come on after I close it
The screen and computer work fine for hours, but if I close the screen to the point where the monitor goes off and then open it again, even one second later...the screen will not turn on, but the computer is still working and running as I can sometimes hit keys and it will make the usual error noises.
If I restart the computer, it comes back on and works fine again for hours until I close the lid and the screen goes off..then the whole thing starts all over again where I can't see the screen and have to restart again.

You can use the System Restore function available with your Windows operating system; or, you can use the pre-installed system restore utility that comes with your Dell Lattitude laptop.
Turn on your computer, and then click on the Windows "Start" icon in the bottom left-hand corner of the screen. Click on "All Programs," and then select the "Accessories" dropdown menu. Select "System Tools," and then click on "System Restore." Wait for the System Restore welcome screen to appear. Click on "Restore my computer to an earlier time." Click on the "Next" button to continue. Click on the back arrow next to the calendar until you have reached the date you purchased or set up your computer. Select that date, and then click on the "Next" button to continue. Your computer will automatically restart. b> Using Dell System Restore Utility b> Turn on your computer, and then press "F8" as your Dell Latitude is booting up to enter the "Advanced Bootup Options" screen. Press the down arrow, and then select "Repair Your Computer." Press the "Enter" key to continue. Select "English" as the default language, and then click on the "Next" button to continue. Enter your administrative username and password, and then click "OK." Click on "Dell Factory Image Restore," and then click on the next button to continue. Click on the box next to "Yes, reformat hard drive and restore system software to factory condition." Click "Next" to continue. Wait for the factory restoration process to complete, and then click on the "Finish" button to complete the system restore process.
Overheating problems are hard to diagnose, and in some cases hard to fix. One recommendation I can give is to use a compressed air can to clean out dust from the vents on the outside of the computer. If that does not work I would recommend taking it to a professional PC repair shop.
Make sure you are saving your changes after altering the password in the BIOS. If altering the password in the BIOS doesn't fix it, then the BIOS is at fault, and your best bet is probably to send it to Dell.
blue screen errors are usually from a malfunction of the ram memory ...an fatal error of the system ...or a change of hardware without re-installation ...so ..if you know that your system its intact and has to work ...usually re-installation of the operating system ...I mean a brand new one ...not repair or upgrade...but one with formatting C partition ...will fix this problem ...also restore bios settings to the factory optimal defaults
