Sounds like a memory problem. Try turning your computer over and finding the access panel that has memory. It usually a small rectangle and may have an icon of memory. Remove the screw (usually only one on Dell's).

You should do this at your kitchen table to avoid static electricity. You will likely have 2 memory sticks in your computer (one may be on top of the other). Spread the clips that holds the memory and remove the memory. Try to keep your fingers off the metal. Remove both sticks (if there are two). Now put them back.

Plug-in your computer. Turn the computer back over, and try to start the computer. If you get the same result, you have some bad memory. The next question is which of the two sticks.

Unplug your computer and remove one of the sticks and try starting again. If it starts, you know that the memory removed was bad. If it does not start, try the other stick of memory and try starting.

If you find the bad stick of memory, all you need to do is get new memory. You can go to one of the memory websites and it will test your machine and determine what memory you need.

Hope that helps.

It sounds like a driver recovery issue, you may have to do a hard reboot. Hold the power button in for atleast 10 seconds or until your laptop shuts down completely, wait 30 seconds then turn it back on. If this fixes the problem you need to upgrade your video driver and/or your Operating System.

Screen remains blank once power is turned on


You should still have warranty on the laptop. Contact the manufacturer and have them repair it. If they say you don't have warranty, then contact us at 800-595-3564. Thank you.

Powers up but black screen


For that you need to refix RAM memory.
It is in back side of laptop.
check in back side you find 1 plate upon battery open it then refix RAM memory.
if still same issue then you have to reset bios settings for that open back cover of laptop then find motherbord pull CMOS cell from motherbord for 10 minutes so all settings goes to factory defaults.
Then check.
Let me know if you need more assistance.
Thanks.

Blank screen


Hi there,
Sometimes an easy solution to this is to turn off your laptop completely, remove the power lead from the socket and the laptop, then remove the battery, leave for a couple of minutes and then try again.
If this does not work, then you are into the realms of programming / restoring.
I hope this helps you, Chris
