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.

You could try updating your USB, chipset, and display drivers. I have encountered this problem multiple times, solutions are hit and miss due to the variation in hardware device customizations by individual manufacturers.

If you would like help finding updated drivers let me know, I will need the model number of your laptop (usually on a sticker on the bottom).
