Hello,
My Dell inspiron F10 laptop with i7 processor recently started showing black screen; the power switch light is on, but nothing else happens. I removed the ram, cleaned and refixed, still no display. Have valuable data, please help how to recover the machine, many thanks.

The data is probably still on the hard drive. Which can be removed an put into a USB enclosure for access from another computer.

The computer itself is best diagnosed by a local PC repsir shop.

Good Luck

Try this

1. Remove the battery and cable.

2. Press and hold the power button for 58 seconds.

3. Replug and start.

Good luck
