My dell just went blank screen had 3 firefox pages opened up. Turned it back on every thing came back up desk top and all firefox started back up as it always dose when pages crash and the screen went blank again and will not come back on. When I push power button caps light blinks for a few minutes and then computer shuts down. This happens on just battery or plugged in also. Have taken battery out took hard drive out and put back in tried almost every thing I can. Any advise would be help full

Check your monitor connections? Or you may have a backlight going out on an LCD monitor. They are replacable, but I couldn't get my back cover off; mine was either glued or vacuum sealed, so I donated it to goodwill and bought another one. If you have an old crt monitor, try it.

Hi

Sorry to hear about your computer. It looks like an issue with your hard drive. You can try and run diagnotics on the hdd, by pressing F12 at the Dell Logo, and then run custom diagnostics on the hard drive. You may not be able to run the diagnotics if the hard drive is gone bad, because the diagnostic partition is saved on the hard drive. You can reach out to us on twitter, @dellcares, or facebook.com/dell, will be glad to help.

Thanks
Royan
