That's your RAM, it's either bad or has come unseated.

Boot problem on inspiron 1150


Try connecting it to an external monitor.
When you do, as soon as you press the power button to turn on the laptop, close the laptop lid - as this forces the laptop to display on an external monitor.
If this works, then it means the laptop screen is bad.
If it doesn't, the most likely cause would be that the laptop video card went bad.
For a while, some older Dell laptops with high-end nVidia graphics cards tended to die suddenly.

I have a Dell Inspiron 5100. I've had it for about three years. One day it did the same thing, no power, no fan, nothing. I replaced the power supply with a 350 watt unit from Office Max. I spent about $40 and I'm using my Dell to send you this response.
