Screen blackout when using AC cord

Warranty expired last spring. When I power up, the screen goes black around the login XP screen. I pull the AC cord out and try the same thing off just the battery and it's fine.
I tried another power cord from out IT dept. at work and it does the same thing. I also tried using the machine AC without the battery and no luck.
All power settings are normal.
What's the problem?

    I've wiggled the plug quite a bit and nothing happens. The only way I can use this laptop now is let it charge, pull the plug, then run it off the battery.

I think you're goin to have to replace your" dc-jack" as it's called. This is where your AC cord plugs into your laptop.DC-jack problems are very common in laptops.Over time they wiggle loose just enough to mess up the solder connection on the motherboard.Try gently wiggling your AC cord where it plugs into your computer ,if you screen returns to normal when you wiggle the plug a certain way,then you've most likely got a bad dc-jack.

Is the screen black from the moment you turn your PC on? Or do you see the BIOS splash screen and Windows loading, but when Windows starts it goes black?

My screen keeps "looping". starts, goes to black


You can try to get the processor to do a cold start. To do this, unplug the power from the set - turning it off is not enough, you must unplug it!

After 15 minutes, plug the set back in and try to power up. If it works OK, you are good2go!

If that did not work, your set probably has a power supply problem. The best option if it is under warranty is to exchange it.

If your warranty has expired, find a good TV repair shop and ask for an estimate before going any further.

Good Luck!

Getting a black screen and no device found. what


First unplug everything from your AC/outlets.Then systematically check every plug going to and from your screen by pulling them out one by one and reattaching them. POWER cord / VGA cord .The VGA cord looks like a D and has 15 pins it goes in easy no force is necessary, thumb tight the screws on each side.Now power cord make sure it's tight, in the socket.Then plug your AC plugs back into the wall. If that doesn't solve your problem either your screen has gone bad or your video card. Good luck!

sounds like you need to reload operating system. do this, on boot up strike F12 until it goes to another screen. choose boot in safe mode or last known good config.

Laptop Screen goes blank


Are you running on battery or AC? Try using the power cord, remove the battery and see if it continues. I have seen a battery that is on its last legs do some weird things to a computer. Also, check your power management setting. Control panel, power, and set the computer to "always on" just to see if it could be a power management setting. If none of this works, i would back up all your files, and try to reload win xp from scratch.

Screen goes black after windows XP logo, then no response.


I would suggest checking your hard drive to see whether or not it has a bad sector on it.

Screen Blackout


Don't bother with DELL if out of warranty, they can't fix it. Have the same model and same problem
probably It is a bad inverter board, in my case one of the 16 transformers is burnt out on the inverter board. still trying to find a replacement component. if not replacing the board is the only option or getting the inverter board repaired.

by the way, this TV has a Samsung panel: model LTA320W2-L03. so it needs parts for a Samsong not a DELL.
DELL does not manufacture or fix them becuase they don't make them
