Logically it would be lcd screen assembly? something to try first...

Connect an external monitor. Allow the system to boot as normal (if it will). Then use the F key combination to route a signal that monitor. presuming ithe system will boot ok, and the F key routine does work... Then if you get a signal on the external display, you know it's on,y the laptop's screen that has died?

Connect an external monitor... By that do you mean should I connect it to my laptop through the USB port.

Also it looks like it doesn't even turn on anymore. But cant tell.

Thanks for your post.

✔ Best Answer
I was going to reply: "No - most (all?) notebook/laptops have a VGA port to which you connect an external monitor?"

However I discover (useful to check on Dell's site) that you have a mini touch-screen tablet system?

Seems Dell make usb-C adapter to allow assorted connections to external destinations... Some general details here - thought I feel you may not be able to connect to an external display that way...

Have you the manual for your Dell device?

How old is your Dell device?

There are a few led style indicators that ought to flash, glow etc. depending on whether or not the tablet is even starting up; and this presumes the battery is charging of course when the mains adapter is connected....

The user manual lists the assorted blinking lights significances...; perhaps have a look-see?

Incidentally when you say the screen is broken - do you mean it's physically damaged (as in cracked etc.)? What happened immediately prior to the screen failure?
