Question about Dell Vostro 1710 Laptop
The lock 9 is flashing and my screen is black
First, try reseating the memory modules in the laptop.
If still nothing, try removing the hard drive, CD/DVD Drive, and memory one at a time (in that order) see if anything makes it boot.
Replace the parts and try booting again.
The error flashing means a processor failure. If you are knowledgeable you can try re-seating the processor.
However, if your unit is in warranty I would call Dell and have them replace the main board and the memory modules as a set. Warning: They will make you go thru these same tests even if you already have.
