    When I turn it on the windows welcome screen comes on and then the screen just turns black and nothing happens no matter what keys i press.

    The person who gave it to me said she was trying to make the fonts bigger and she thinks she made them so big that now you cant see anything.

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.

Video problem on my Dell Dimension 4600 PC, HELP ASAP.

the resolution set by default when you load your graphics driver is outside the range of your monitors capability.

try starting in safe mode then adjust your resolution to 640 by 480 then restart.
if this works, adjust upwards to 1024 by 768
then up again till the screen blanks.
when it does, dont panic, wait 20 seconds and the settings will restore - you then have the optimum settings for your monitor.

good luck
