Hello
Please I desperately need a help for my dell laptop inspiron 1520 windows xp for it has suddenly went black for quite some days now. I have tried all the suggestions I got from people with similar issue but to no avail. Now the problem is like this. The screen when switched on is blank and on the caps lock light is on but blinking continually why the screen is still blank and after the caps lock light continous blink, the laptop goes off by itself. Please what could be the problem? And what can I do to get my laptop screen on again? Thanks for your swift response and God bless!

Thanks for your response! I've done what you ask me to do by pluging it to power but that still does not change the blank screen as well as the alphabet key that keeps blinking. Pls is there any other alternative? Thanks for your swift response and God bless you.

Pull the RAM out, and try to boot. Does it do something different, or does it show the SAME indication as if the RAM was in it?
