    using windows 7 dell studio 1558
    Black screen on startup no life at all but can hear the normal functions of the computer starting up.. hard drive etc
    Replaced the ram and it makes no beeps.
    I know the screen works because when I hold down D on startup it gives me the multicolour screen test. I’m losing the will to live now! Also tried vga cable which won’t appear on my tv or monitor. Is there anyway to jump start this comp back to life!?!

    if you have the battery inserted please unplugged it. Also insist on try another ram memory, or be sure the one you are testing is working fine in another computer. Also try a different dc adapter. If problem persists you may have problems with your motherboard or the cpu

    Are there any function keys I could use on startup to bring it back to life? Or run diagnostics etc
