The Inspiron 1526 features AMD processors, Windows Vista, up to 4GB shared Dual Channel 667MHz DDR2 SDRAM, ATI Radeon Xpress 1270 graphics (integrated), 15.4" Wide Screen display and up to 250GB3 configured with a single 5400 RPM SATA hard drive.
When I turn the laptop on the screen stays blank.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
I'm having the same problem with 1 of my laptops I've tried resetting it and it is still black, the charger is in and there is a green light on the rectangular thing
*The laptop is the same model Inspiron 1526
use an external monitor just to make sure your LCD is not broken
I worked out the cable at the end on the plug had been pulled and there was a virus. The laptop was originally vista but it currently xp which isn't supported anymore. But when I go to boot manager it doesn't say vista is there a way of reinstalling vista even though I don't have the disc as I think it might be in storage
Here is a link to an article I hope will help you. Good luck, Ralph.
