Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1525 Notebook ?

The screen just shut off and when I restarted the computer I see an image for maybe 2 seconds before the screen goes black again?? Please help.

Answers :

Test an external monitor and see if the same thing happens. If the display goes out even before your computer gets to the part of loading Windows, it may mean your computer is not booting up, or there is a problem with the LCD. Check and confirm that your system power indicators are okay. If you know your system is turned on, but not display, run the diagnostics from dell using the FN + power button combination. observe if the display will work properly during the test and if you get any error that can indicate the point of failure.
