Hi bobby03,

This problem could happen because of the video driver failure or because of any hardware failure. Either the Graphics Card drivers or the Operating System (Windows 7) has become corrupt or there is some hardware component failing. In order to isolate which one of these is the actual cause of problem follow the steps below:

1. Power on/Restart the computer and start tapping the F8 key when the Dell Logo appears.
2. If the Advanced Boot Menu appears select Safe Mode with Networking and see if the computer boots to the Desktop.
3. If the computer boots to desktop visit the below mentioned link and download the Video Drivers:

http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/19/DriverDetails/Product/inspiron-duo?driverId=GP1R5&osCode=W732&fileId=2731101767

4. Once the download completes. Uninstall the existing drivers and then reinstall. Restart the computer if required and see if the computer boots to windows.
5. If the computer doesn't boot to Safe Mode with Networking, restart the computer and start tapping the F12 key.
6. Select Diagnostics from the menu that appears.
7. Run the Dell 32-bit diagnostics on the machine to identify any Hardware failure.
8. If the Diagnostics returns any error code, do replace the defective part indicated by the diagnostics.

Please revert for clarification.
