When my xps m140 laptop boot up after few minite lcd screen blak out. how to fic this?

There could either be a problem on your LCD screen, or Graphics card, to determine it. Try plugging an external monitor on your laptop and see if the display turns black also on the other monitor. If no, the problem is the LCD, but if yes (still black screen on the external monitor) it means the problem is on the graphics card.

The dell logo flashes then the screen goes blank. The hard drive keep flashing like the laptop is booting up okay it is a xps m140 and has vista home as a o/s

After the logo flashes, press F8, repeatedly, until a white-over-black "boot menu" is displayed. Choose "Safe Mode", to see if this "minimal" version of Windows will startup successfully.

Dead screen on an xps m140. How can I figure out why it won't work? The computer boots up and can be attached to an external monitor. But when I boot up without the monitor the laptop screen is a blank...

Take a flask light and hold it at an angle toward the screen. See if you can see the desktop in the background. If you can your inverter needs to be replaced. The inverter is a small circuit board that lights the screen, much like the balast in a flourescent light.

Dell XPS M140 laptop shuts off after powering on

Most laptops that I have worked on that power off that quickly turned out to be an overheating problem. Is the cooling fan running for the brief period that you can hear the hard drive before it powers off ? If the fan is running another potential resolution might be to remove the processor and apply new thermal paste.
