Don't like to disappoint you but there are so many possibilities for failure after being dropped, I don't think anyone here can help you without having your unit in hand for inspection.

One thing you might consider doing yourself:

You apparently have another computer available.
If it is a desktop, (locate one in any case), follow the cable from the monitor to the system box backside.
Not the cable that goes to the wall or powerstrip, the one that attaches to the system.
Detach the cable from the desktop's system box (should be two thumbscrews) and find the mating connector on your laptop.
Be gentle - the pins are fragile.

Turn your laptop on and watch the desktop's screen for signs of life.
If you see anything recognizable (text, wallpaper, etc.) then your laptop has survived up to the screen section.
Ths means you could at least retrieve data from it so as not to lose your work.

I don't recommend trying to peer inside your laptop, the cases don't always come apart easy and you may not know what you are looking at even if opened.

Laptop repairs are not cheap or always lasting so you might consider getting your docs off of the machine or just buy a cheap monitor and make your laptop - a desktop.

Good luck-

As a laptop repair tech I use http://www.unlockbiosrecovery.com/Unlock_Dell_Bios.php when I need to clear a Dell bios password. They charge $20 and guarantee it to work or your money back. Use them couple times a month and they always come through.

Hello,

It is definitely possible you have a damaged screen component. At this point I would recommend taking it to a service center or call them and have it shipped for repair. You may even have a local computer repair shop that could help you out and maybe save some money :)

The problem has been narrowed down by connecting it to the TV. We know the laptop works fine otherwise except for the screen.

Regard,

Hi,
You can reseat the HDD by yourself. It is something that you can do it without taking it to a professional. You can download the manual from support.dell.com, for assistance.\
Hope this helps.

Screen goes blank when on battery power


Two possibilities: The display is a power hog. It's possible that the battery is failing, and has enough power to run the PC, but not the PC AND display at the same time. You would need to replace the battery, in this case. Or, in Control Panel, in Performance and Maintenance, in Power Options, there should be settings somewhere for the display when on battery or AC power. Make sure that the one for Battery doesn';t turn the display off after 0 minutes.

Dell inspirion 5100 fell


Before you can think of fixing it, ask yourself what is there to fix.
open your laptop check for any broken parts on the board if its fine which i highly doubt also check whether any broken piece got into the fun. And for the monitor connect an external monitor and see what happens.
