Dell STUDIO 1537 black screen on first boot up ??

The inverter maybe faulty, it supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp and would cause the screen to be black.
Since it was just repaired, I suggest you return it to Dell to have it repaired under warranty.

Dell studio 1555 won't power up. LED flashes 4 orange, one white.

First, check the RAM.. If possible replace it by a good one for testing or clean the pins of the old one using clean paper.
Second, its processor...
Third, maybe it is the inverter of your LCD display or the whole LCD. Test it using external monitor by plugging your data cable to it monitor port.

Dell Studio 1537 laptop will not power up.

Did you recently changed the system configuration? if so you need to reset it to the default value from the bios or you remove the Bios Battery leave it for few mins and reinsert it, if you can't even boot up to this, then remove the HDD and see whether you can access your bios or not. Good luck..

The screen will not come on when the computer comes on on my dell xps notebook. The laptop comes on but the screen stays black when turned on.

I had a similar problem with a one year old Dell laptop, and it turned out that the screen was OK on battery power, but when you plugged it in to the AC charger the screen went very dark. It turned out to be the LCD backlight inverter, which I purchased from a fellow in Florida for about $16 and installed by following the instructions at . Hope this helps you out a bit...

My C610 Dell has a screen that is a little darker than it should be. Would this likely be the backlight or inverter. Should both be replaced at the same time as a matter of standard procedure? T R

Have you tried adjusting first the brightness level? If nothing happens when adjusting it, the LCD and LCD cable needs to be replaced. If im not mistaken, i believe there is no backlight/inverter that can be replaced since its already built in the LCD. Some Dell laptops have inverters like Studio 1737 that can be replaced. Hope this helps
