    I have a dell inspiron laptop 8000 model no, pp01x.
    When I turn on my computer;the Dell sign comes on but the screen goes blank.
    When I hold a flashlgiht to the screen, I can see the screen.
    nothing loads and when my options appear(safe mode, last configuration, or regular mode) nothing happens if I press anyone of them. It just keeps restarting.

    u can try connecting an external monitor from a desktop if u have one or borrow one and see if that monitor shows anything without problems.it sounds to me that your monitor on the laptop has gone bad.. the led modules that light it up have gone bad or your video card might be bad.it could also be that the motherboard or hard drive is failing.usually if just the monitor is bad it should load up with no problems.hope this helps u.
