You need to take it in for warranty service. The hard drive and possibly motherboard have failed.

Dell Inspiron 1420 switch off while on at Internet site and it will not start up again when pressing the on button.

you can first try to connect your laptop to an AC power source via the ac adapter, if it fails to charge the battery, then it must be your battery died. try a relacement dell inspiron 1420 battery,which usually lasts longer and is compatibale with your dell and costs much less than the original one!

Sounds like your graphics adapter isn't working correctly or there's a problem with something in Windows (I'm assuming you're running Windows XP). If so, restart your computer and hit F8 until you get a menu. Select Safe Mode and see if it boots up correctly. If it does, note any error messages you may receive and then shut it down. After shutting it down, let it start up on it's own and see if you get your picture back.
