Flashing - ON -Flashing indicates a problem with the LCD. Reseat the LCD cable connection to the motherboard, then see if the problem is resolved. If not, disconnect the LCD from the motherboard, and connect and external monitor, see if the system posts normally (You may need to toggle Fn +F8 for external video) if it posts, the LCD/LCD inverter is bad. If it doesn't, the motherboard is bad.

I would hook up an external monitor to see if the laptop is working. If it is working fine then you must have a connection problem where the LCD plugs into the motherboard. I am willing to bet it is the LCD cable mot seated correctly. If it does not work on an external monitor try switching the memory chips one at a time if you have 2. Everything you mention indicates it is booting but no video. Good Luck Phil

Could you please run the diagonistics on the computer?
Turn on the computer. When the DELL logo appears, press <F12> immediately. Select Diagnostics from the boot menu and press <Enter>.
NOTE: If you wait too long and the operating system logo appears, continue to wait until you see the
Microsoft Windows desktop. Then shut down your computer and try again.
b Press and hold the <Fn> key while powering the system on.

Make a note of any errors that you get after running the diagnositcs on the computer.
