Question about Dell INSPIRON 6000 CENTRINO 1.7GHZ,512mb,40GB,DVDRW,XP (086216118098) PC Notebook
My computer sounds like it is starting up, the lights indicating that it is starting are lit up, however the screen stays black? Any idea if this is a virus? How can I fix it if it is not a virus? Thanks
I have this issue with a Dell Inspiron 3800. An external monitor works, but the lpatop screen stays black.

Can you hear the Windows startup noises but can't hear it?
Does it work plugged into an external monitor? (Any good CRT or flat screen should work.
Be sure to plug in the screen before you turn it on.
If it doesnt output to the LCD automatically you may have to hit FN-F8 to switch to external.
If it works on external monitor you are just dealing with a screen problem of some sort - either a bad inverter or backlight in the LCD most commonly...
Let us know.
