|I've had nothing but bad luck with Dell laptops. I had a Dell CPT laptop from a few years ago and it developed the problem you described: Press power, then 10 or 20 seconds later, the screen goes dark. |
I have two other Dell laptops, both model C640 which have a similar problem. Turn on, wait a few seconds, screen turns off, computer turns off.
But all of my laptops are out of warranty and having searched on the web, it appears to be a LCD screen problem. UGH!
