I don't have a solution but I have a similar problem. The cat knocked my Dell Inspiron 6000 off the chair yesterday. I ran the check with the Fn key and all passed except for the LCD connection test. It states unable to detect LCD. I have an external monitor plugged in to see the screen, as my is just blue. Any advice would be appreciated.

black screen at startup? do you still see the Dell logo at startup? try pressing Fn+F8 at the same time at the black screen and see if it works. Or else, try a working external monitor and check if its a OS problem or a screen problem. You can also run a diagnostic test by holding down the Fn key while its off and then press the power button while still pressing on the function key to check if you will still see the diagnostic test for the LCD.

Black screen on laptop

When it is in that state, try hooking it up to an external display. Also look for a extremely faint image on the screen. If it's really faint you have a bad back light, if you see nothing but you get a display on an external monitor it's probably the display going bad.

My laptop came on but my screen is black. I can hear my coputer on but my screen is staying black.

Here are some discrete steps you shall also take besides fixing your Windows 7 registry which is inevitable for safer and stable computing:
* Conduct an antivirus and antimalware scan. Fixing for malwares after a registry scan gives an extra protection to the PC and saves PCs from lots of dangerous infections.
* Start Windows 7 in safe mode and restore your PC/system to the previous date after which you received the Windows 7 updates. It is believed that some updates may be behind these screen issues in Windows 7.
* Adjust your display settings since the wrong settings may also cause the Windows 7 black screen also called the blank screen. You can do this by starting Windows in safe mode.
Follow all the guidelines and start from registry repairing scan for Windows 7 to fix Windows 7 black screen.use registry cleaner reg in out to solve the issue

The issue might be corrupted display drivers, I recommend you to boot the laptop in safe mode by using F8 key and if you are able to get into safe mode, update your display drivers and update BIOS.
