Hi. My computer is having a problem loading. Apparently, I went to work and then my wife decided that instead of turning it off the correct way just turned it off by hitting the power switch. Now when i try to turn it back on to reload, it powerrs up but the screen is black. Also I am not sure if there is a problem with the motor of my fan, because it is making a weird zzzzzzz noise. The fan is turning so the motor is working. As for the screen, I have held down the power button for 10 to 15 sec

I have a Dell Inspiron 5150 that doesn't seem to post. When I turn it on, the power light comes on, the battery light comes on, I hear the heat sink fan run, but I don't get the Dell splash screen. I tried a different video card. Nothing. I connected to an external monitor. Nothing. I have heard of a lot of problems with this model, but never about the video socket on the motherboard. Is there anything else I could try?
