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.
the IT guy had to come out and replace the system board last month in mine. Hard drive was fine. This month the problem is Windows XP and a change I made with a graphics program, awaiting a solution. At least now I get the Dell and Windows XP screen everytime before I get the black screen.
Most probably your LCD screen has got spoiled and the liquid has leaked making the screen blank. Remember our old calculators, how its display changed colors(black) when pressure was applied on it?.....sodeep
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.
