Having problems with your Dell PC Laptops ?

Dell Inspiron 6000 about 3 years old. When I boot up, sometimes it goes through the early Windows XP screens and then goes to a blank screen. It indicates that activity is going on but cannot see it on the LCD. Other times I can load up okay but then after an indeterminate period of time, the screen goes blank. Any ideas


Answers :

The screen cable is most likely damaged. Try connecting an external monitor. If it works, you need to take the computer to a repair center to have the cable changed.
