Laptop Screen goes blank - HELP ASAP

By cdeleon701
Aug 11, 2007
  1. I have a Dell Inspiron 6000 laptop.

    When I turn it on, screen remains black, but the computer continues to load.

    I have a friend who also has an Inspiron 6000. I plugged my laptop screen connector to his laptop and my screen worked as normal showing my friend's sign-on screen, etc. However, when I plugged his laptop screen on my computer... his screen does not work but you can hear my computer load.

    In another situation, I plugged in an external monitor to my laptop and it worked. I tried the Fn F8 but nothing happens to my laptop screen.

    Is this an inverter problem or a work of a virus?

    Help!
