Specs: Windows XP
i have lots of problems since its old and over used, but recently it used to close itself then when i close it and reopen after a while it give me message that it was over heated but opens fine after i skip it, i think its not a heat problem cause sometimes it close after a while.
anyway today when i was using it i noticed the light getting darker than normal in seconds then suddenly screen turned black i tried to close it and reopen i see dell start screen and low beep then screen turn black but its still working and i can hear it open normally just screen black.
i tried to take off battery, AC chord and pressing power button for a while but didnt work same thing happens though the screen sometimes give red light.
i tried to work with AC chord or battery only still not working.
i tried to connect my laptop to another screen but it doesnt connect i dont know if it needs options first or no but with black screen i cant see everything to download program if i need.

well i dont know whats wrong all happens dell start screen low current beep then open normally but with black screen.

a note if it helps, my screen side cover broken did that cause problem or it doesnt matter?

i tried to open it again its fine but screen black i can barely see shadow of everything, i think something happened from cover damage or is it something else?

Best first step would be to beg or borrow a monitor and plug it in as an external. That would tell you if you have a monitor fault or not.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Also make sure you clean out all your vents weekly. If it was reporting a heat problem before and you ignored it, it's possible that this could be the end result. but otherwise, ditto Derek; use an external monitor first if you can get one.
