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.

Well i tried to solve problem as in finding limits and derivatives but the calculator won't provide me the answer and it says i should use cas. Im not sure what cas is.

CAS is short for Computer Algebraic system such as MAPLE and other software. But some calculators can not find general solutions or non-numerical solutions to problems.
Were you trying to find numerical solutions; graphical solutions, or symbolic solutions. Most calculators can not do the symbolic things; you might have to upgrade to a ti-89 or something more powerful.
Good Luck
