Black screen after WinXP boot, same in Safe Mode

\015 My friends Dell Inspiron 600M screen goes black after being able to see the Windows screen. Some time she gets to logon in both and then it goes black whether or not she clicks the logon. She can hear the hard drive and sees system lights.\015

Answers :

If it displays fine to an external monitor without going black, then, unfortunately, it sounds like you have a problem with the laptop display. Backlight might be going out. Either you can just get an external monitor and leave it connected or have it repaired. I'm not sure you wan to try this yourself unless you're especially adventurous. You'd have to get the service manual and start replacing parts(an example of a parts store).
