Dell Inspiron N5010 :: Not Booting Up - Screen Continuously Blank

Mar 25, 2013

For the past several days, when I've first opened my laptop there is only a blank screen.  The computer does not wake up even after I push the power button and the screen continues to be blank. The only way that I've gotten it to respond is by shutting off, unplugging, removing battery and then replacing battery and turning it back on again. I've done this in different combinations. Do I need a new battery or is something else wrong?

Dell Inspiron N5010 :: Beeps On Startup Continuously And Won't Show Screen?

Jan 23, 2014

I have a dell Inspiron 15 N5010 which is about 4 years old. It was working properly, but suddenly it went off and when i restarted it, there was nothing which appeared on screen, but  there was a beep sound which went on until i turned my laptop off. Even the startup screen didnt appeared during this. The power button lights up, fan is running, but the screen is not coming up.

I have noticed one thing also, if i put it on for long time, so that it gains enough heat due to constatnt running and then I restart it, the screen will come. and after sometime, the screen distorts and after few seconds, the laptop screen turns black and the beep sound appears which start crying until i turn laptop off.

Dell Inspiron N5010 :: Blank Screen At Startup (External Monitor Also Didn't Work)

Oct 7, 2012

I have an issue with my Inspiron N5010 screen, it doesn't work when switching on my laptop on Battery or AC mode. It happens a lot of times when I turn on the laptop the power button, the power indicators at the bottom turns on normally and the laptop is running without any weird sounds. But the screen is pitch black even doesn't show up anything when I concentrate on it in with a lamp or any light.

When I press the power button again even after 5 mins from the start time of being running the laptop just turn off immediately and doesn't take time to switch off as If the windows wasn't loaded!

I was resolving this problem by disconnecting the AC adapter > removing the battery > Pressing and hold the power button for 20 seconds technique.but today it doesn't work anymore, If there's anything I can do to get the screen backlight to work normally ....

Dell Inspiron 1545 :: Not Booting Up - Seven Beeps Continuously

Nov 16, 2014

I have a Dell Inspiron 1454 which when you press the power button it whirrs slightly (think it's the fan) before doing nothing else except having a blank screen and a white light indicating power to the laptop (solid white). My OS is Win 7 and I've had the laptop a few years now. So far I've tried the following:-

Pressing the D button while powering on to test the display - this works as I get the coloured screens so It can't be a screen fault.

Pressing the FN key whilst powering on to get the POST code - this is seven beeps continuously which seems to common and has to do with the CPU cache?

Tried the obvious removing battery, holing power button for 1 minute to discharge any residual power. Also removed the CMOS battery and put it back in again.

Also tried plugging in an external monitor but nothing showed up. Is it something to do with it being stuck in hibernation?

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: T430U Not Booting - Blank Screen Or Never Gets Passed Splash Screen

Nov 25, 2014

System specs:
Lenovo T430U
Intel i5-3427U
8GB PC3-12800 DDR3-1600MHz SoDIMM Memory
HDD 500G 7200rpm Toshiba
mSATA 24GB Samsung Cache
Win 8 Pro, upgraded to 8.1
I rarely use this machine but a couple of months ago I went to boot it up and found that I was not able to get past the Windows splash screen. Sometimes I don't even get the Windows splash screen, I just get a black screen. Rarely I get a Windows screen saying that it is diagnosing a system problem or something to that effect and I can even get to where it will allow me to do some Windows diagnostics but nothing ever comes of it and the process is extremely slow.
I called Lenovo, but of course my machine is out of waranty so the tech just gave me a few pointers and said I could send it in to the depo but the potential repair cost could range up to about 75% of what I paid for the machine in the first place. Anyways, after having me try a few things in the BIOS he suggested that it was likely the hard drive. I mistakenly thought from the time that I bought this machine that the OS was installed on the 24 GB SSD so I ordered a new SSD and swapped it in. This made no difference at all as I have now learned that the mSATA SSD drive is merely for cache to speed up booting.
I am afraid that this means the main HDD is at fault, and quite frankly, if I replace it I am going to do a fresh install of Windows 7. But I do have pictures and docs that I would like to salvage if possible.

Dell Inspiron N5010 :: Shuts Off While Booting In 10-15 Seconds

Jun 10, 2012

Dell inspiron N5010 laptop. When ever I carry my laptop to some place lets say from home to college it stops booting, when I switch on my laptop it starts but after 10-15 seconds it shuts off, also when I try to keep the system in bios it again shuts off within 10-15 seconds.

Twist in the problem is that if I keep my laptop idle for 20-30 minutes it starts working fine (I never remove battery or ram just left my laptop idle)

Another thing is i face this problem only when laptop is carried by me in my back pack or u can say when laptop is subjected to movement.

I noticed this pattern seriously. For past 15 days I didn't displaced my laptop from my desk and it work like any normal laptop but today when I took it to my friends place and there when I tried to boot it it starts and shuts off within 15 seconds while booting so I did the same left it idle without even removing ram or battery or charger for 10 -15 minutes and then it starts working fine.

Why is this happening is there is a problem i hardware or just some loose connection.

Dell Inspiron N5010 :: Black Screen When Turning On - No Beeps

Apr 5, 2013

I have a problem turning on my dell n5010 laptop with win7/ubuntu dual boot , I was doing some blogging using ubuntu and I went to have lunch and left it on but when I got back I found my laptop dead with the black screen and not turning on again with only the power led always on then the hdd led for a few seconds but not hearing any beeps and not seeing anything on the screen.

I have followed some solutions posted before but none of them worked.

1 - I tried to remove battery , ac and press power button to drain static electricity then trying to boot with ac adapter only but it didn't work.

2 - I tried the LCD test and tried an external monitor but neither works.

3 - I tried removing the memory modules , cleaning and reinserting but no change.

3 - I tried Dell Diagnositic but the only difference was that I heard 7 repetitive beeps when on the mode but not seeing anything on the screen .

Dell :: Screen Went Blank Inspiron 1521

Feb 2, 2009

Her mum was using the laptop a couple of nights ago and the screen just went blank suddenly when she was browsing the internet.

She held the Power button in and turned it off as it was still running. When she tried to Start it up again the Laptop is starting up but nothing is coming up on the screen, The screen is staying completely blank,

Although when you hold for talk sake the Light of your mobile phone around 1cm away from the Screen you can see the Desktop of the Laptop. So basically the laptop is working but theres no light to light the screen up it just stays black as if it isnt turned on.

Dell Inspiron 6400 :: Screen Almost Always Goes Blank Within Less Than A Second

Mar 28, 2013

Whenever I switch on my Inspiron 6400, either via the On/Off or Media Direct button, the screen almost always goes blank within less than a second. I would like to reset the computer to its original factory settings via F8 or reinstall the operating system via F12 but cannot do so because of the blank screen. Occasionally, I hear the sound which accompanies the window screen a few seconds after switching the computer on; the computer will also sometimes whirr and the number lock and wife symbols will illuminate, all whilst the screen remains blank.

This problem first developed yesterday when I received the message "NTLDR is missing". With a bit of perseverance yesterday, I could eventually get the computer to work by repeatedly switching it on an off, but this no longer seems possible today.My computer has Windows Vista.

Dell Inspiron 17 R SE :: Started Booting To A Black Screen

Apr 18, 2013

I have a 17 Inch Inspiron R Se that I purchased in has started booting to a black screen...if I press the power button again to turn it off then back on it boots is very annoying seeing as it is almost new...I had the same issue  a couple of weeks after getting it and did the computer renew thing which fixed it (until now) but I don't want to do that again as I have a ton of stuff on it now that I don't want to mess with and have to reload etc...

I tried the hard reset and it did absolutely nothing...ran the diagnostics and everything passed.

Dell :: Inspiron 1526 Blank Screen After Hibernation

Oct 21, 2009

My Dell Inspiron 1526 won't restore after hibernation.

After a recent Vista update the laptop was placed in hibernation mode before the normal 'restart to complete update' process. After a minute or so i press a button expecting to see a logon screen, instead the monitor was off, blank screen with no power.

I presss every button but nothing happened. After a restart the monitor remains off but i can still hear 1526 checking the cd drive. I restarted several times trying the Fn+F8 option with an external monitor and pressing the up button while holding Fn but still the same.

1526 appear to be in a wierd state because i placed a XP boot cd and restart then hit Enter several times. If the backlight or inverter was the only problem then 1526 would boot from the cd as normal though i wouldn't be able to see. It doesn't, it simply power up, checks the cd drive then does nothing.

Dell Inspiron M5010 :: 7 Beeps With Blank Screen

Apr 1, 2013

Just two days ago I was using my laptop then turned it off like any other day. Later in the day I proceeded to turn it back on and received the dreadful 7 beeps with a blank screen. For the time that I've had it, I've taken good care of it, (never dropping it etc.) I have read on some of these forums that the 7 beeps could mean a bad motherboard/processor.

My Dell Inspiron 1520 does not complete booting. It start booting, then the screen go black. I am currently doing is 'diagnostic test'. This also came back with no problem, but a window popped up and asked whether I want to continue to full diagnosis. I closed YES. I hope this solves the black screen problem.

Dell Inspiron N7010 :: 8 Beeps On Startup And Blank Screen

Dec 7, 2014

My Inspiron N7010 was working fine until 2 days ago.  I had it playing a movie through the HDMI port to my TV & then the video started to freeze up.  Starting the next day, when I tried to start it up, it beeps 8 times & goes to a black screen, then eventually it turns off.  I opened it up & re-seated the CMOS battery & checked all the ribbons.  Tried holding the "d" key while powering on, the screen cycles through the colors & then goes black & powers off.  Tried connecting to 2 different external monitors, could not get a picture on either.

Dell Inspiron 1425 :: Power Light Is On But Screen Is Blank

Apr 2, 2013

My laptop was working fine till yesterday night. I had left it with the power cable connected and it had gone to sleep. Today morning I tried to switch it on but the screen wont show anything. I switced it off (using press and hold the power button) and now the laptop wont start. When I press the power button, the power light comes on, the hard-disk light switches on for a second and turns off and the screen is always blank. This happens regardless of the laptop being connect using battery or power cable. I have tried pressing the Fn key along with the lcd screen key and the screen did show up some tests in a blue screen and they were all a pass. But when i try to do a nromal boot, the screen never shows anything.
