    That's another problem.........there's no where on the back to plug in an external monitor. Only usb inputs and a video jack on the left side. The monitor I have has a larger plug that will fit into the video jack.

    Yesterday I tried booting my computer (dell inspiron b130), and the
    dell logo flashed for .5 seconds before going to the black screen. My
    keyboard indicates power is going to the computer via the power brick,
    but it doesn't seem like the computer is actually turning on. The fan
    also doesn't start up like it does during a normal boot.



    My problem sounds like the one that was described by the other Steve,
    but I'm mildly retarded when it comes to electronics and wanted to get
    another opinion.

    Thanks in advance,

    Steve

Connect an external monitor at the back of your laptop and see if the display is fine. If the display is fine with the external monitor, it means to say that there's something wrong with your LCD's backlight. You may have to contact Dell Technical Support to check if your system is still under warranty.

Thanks! :)

The screen goes very dark within a minute after booting up = I can just barely see the menu page


When you say screen goes very dark when it booted to windows so it means that when you turned on the laptop when the dell logo flashes the screen was fine? if thats the case could you please try this. after turning on the laptop you will see the dell logo flashes immediately keep tapping on F2 and then it will show you the BIOS setup utility, please check if in BIOS setup display goes dark as well. If yes then try this, after turning on the computer when dell logo flashes keep tapping on F12 to boot menu then select utility partition to run the diagnostics. Please run test on the LCD check if display goes black when running the LCD test. Then try this when you sees the dell logo keep tapping on F8 to boot in safe mode check if in safe mode display goes very dark. Try this too, boot in F8 then select last known good configuration check if the settings on your display will be fix. If you can boot to safe mode no problem then uninstall the display or video driver. then restart computer.
You can also try to connect an external monitor if you have one just try to isolate if issue is on the LCD or the video card. If the display is dark as well in external monitor then video card needs to be reseated if fails then replaced. In situation like this most video cards is integrated to the motherboards. So replace motherboard.

The theme chane does not change anything. the error is right from the booting....the welcome screen onwards the monitor config is out?????


you mentioned monitor. this is a laptop right? so monitor is the lcd correct? now when you turned on the laptop and sees dell logo it means display is ok. after windows logo or after you type in your password display goes black? try startup repair first. using the windows media.

My dell inspiron b130 boots up but monitor is black


After your laptop boots up into windows, hold down the Fn key and as your doing that press the F8 button that should switch the output from the vga connetor to the LCD screen on the laptop.

If you still don't get video then you'll have to reseat the LCD cable from the back of the LCD screen to where it connects to the motheboard.

If you still don't get video then its either going to be a bad LCD or a bad motherboard.

Dell B130 boots but nothing on screen and no boot up sounds


If you are seeing an shadow image on the LCD and you have video on an external monitor, then the LCD backlight has failed. The LCD will need to be replaced

I googled B130 LCD's and they generally run $125 to $200

Dell inspiron b130 won't boot up.


Connect an external monitor to the laptop and see if you can see what is happening on that.
It is a possibility that your inverter is faulty and will need to be replaced. They will normally power on for a few seconds, then cut out.
Remember to set the laptop to use the external monitor with the function keys.

Screen will not stay on


The first thing to check is the LCD or Screen inverter. It is a small board that at the bottom of screen. You have to open up the plastic part of the screen or LCD. Usually this part goes bad.

I am sending you a link of a sample from ebay,
