Hello,

I have a Dell Inspiron which is getting switched on from the power switch but is not showing anything on the screen. The display is blank and nothing is showing on it.

Can someone please help me? I am in dire need of an advice

Poop!

It worked for hundreds like mirable!

If you hear a windows jingle, it's the screen!

If you don't hear the jingle, it's hardware or windows.

1. I suggest resetting to factory settings and if that fails we either have a hard disk or mummyboard problem for which I have no solution.

Sorry about that.
