Video problems are common on laptops. Use a remote monitor and plug it into the VGA connector on back of laptop. If you still have no video it is probably the laptop. If you dou have video then the video card is probably OK and the problem is likely the LCD on laptop.

Dell Inspiron 1420 switch off while on at Internet site and it will not start up again when pressing the on button.


you can first try to connect your laptop to an AC power source via the ac adapter, if it fails to charge the battery, then it must be your battery died. try a relacement dell inspiron 1420 battery,which usually lasts longer and is compatibale with your dell and costs much less than the original one!

boot in the safe mode, see if issue still occurs (F8 at boot) if it does, then likely there is a problem with the Video Card or the LCD itself, I'm leaning toward the video card.
Try flashing the bios to current and installing the most current video driver, see if anything changes.

Hi,

It seems that you have an integrated video card.

let me give you two options.
upgrade your mobo and video card which will probably cost you $500.00

or upgrade your memory for $200 to increase shared video memory.

hope this helps.

thanks,.
