Dell atitude D610. Turns on with red screen for a couple of seconds, then the screen blacks out. Replaced the ac adapter and didn't help. Shouldn't it work without the battery in place? I tried removing the battery and it seems to work the same.

Hello cellarjeff;

It kinda sounds like the screen itself has gone bad.
Or it might be the graphics chip on the motherboard.

I would also throw out that the inverter might be bad. Do you have video when you connect an external monitor? Can you put a flashlight to the screen and see anything?
