You can only do a system restore if you can boot into safe mode. If you do not have Dell rescue discs then you need to reinstall your OS and you would need an OS disc for that.

Do you not have other options like pressing F5 or6 during boot?

Try unplugging your video card and re-seating it. Sometimes, when they are cleaned, the card gets bumped and isn't quite seated right. If that doesn't work, try doing the same thing with your memory sticks.

Turn power on and nothing but a black screen dell 1545, any ideas. Is there a reset button?


If it turns on and makes all the normal sounds, hold the screen up to a light and move it around. If you see a very dim picture then your inverter has failed. This can be fixed.
You can also plug an external monitor into the laptop to make sure that your graphics chip hasn't let go.

I have a Dell laptop D505. The laptop powers up but the screen display is very dim. I can't see the image on the monitor. I've tried to manually increase the color/brightness button and nothing changes. ...


Sounds like your inverter or your backlight is failing. The inverter is an easy repair, the backlight can be replaced but it involves taking the LCD panel apart, The backlight comes installed on new screens. I can include a service manual below and possibly a generic guide to backlight replacement....

Getting frequent black screens on 1501 Inspiron Laptop


Black screen is probably a screen saver or the screen is turned off by power management software.
Check your screensaver setting. Change the screensaver to None to disable screensaver.
I assume you are using Windows XP.
If the LCD is turned off by power management, on the same screen with screen saver, on the lower part of the box there is a Power button. Click to open Power Options Properties. Set your monitor power properties there.
When the screen go blank and you have to push power button, probably the computer is set to go to stand by mode after some idle minutes. You can also set it here in system standby setting.
