If it is actually booting, then you should hear some beeps as it starts, if there are actual problems with the system &/or hard drive.. You need to count the beeps & report them here, so we can decide what the problem is.. If the system is starting up ok & it's a screen related fault, the easiest way to test is to connect an external monitor, via the external monitor port. Most laptops have them. In fact I know the Dell 1100 does. Once you have connected the monitor, there is a sequence of keys on the keyboard to press, to switch to the external monitor. This will prove where the problem is..

However, I have some sad news for you.. Apparently there is a law suit against Dell (Class Action in fact) for overheating CPUs.

I think your 'video' problem is most likely because of that, then a faulty screen. There is a rather complicated procedure for fixing the problem here:

This something you should really think about doing, if it's already not too late. I know it looks complicated, but if you know someone who knows how to use tools, it should be done.

Also, if you want to join the class action.. Here it is:

Lots of luck with all this. Feel free to talk if you need help.

I have a Dell Inspiron 5100. I've had it for about three years. One day it did the same thing, no power, no fan, nothing. I replaced the power supply with a 350 watt unit from Office Max. I spent about $40 and I'm using my Dell to send you this response.

Dell Inspiron 5160 screen


The only way to fix it is to buy and install a replacement LCD.

LCD's are available for about $100 on EBay, but the you have to know the size a resolution of the screen before buying a replacement. (14.1 or 15 inch, XGA, SXGA+ or UXGA resolution)
