    Hi, when I turn on my laptop, there is nothing shown on the display screen. I can hear the fan is running and the laptop is still on.

    Since I haven't been turn on my laptop for about 1 months, will this cause the probelm? My laptop model is Dell E1405.

    Thanks for the help

    Its possible that your moniter died. I currently have a Latitude C600, and its screen is dying. When it turn it on, the display is garbled, and I have to use force to get a readable picture.

    Also, its possible that the video cable came lloe from the motherboard. To make sure that its not your graphics card, use an external moniter

    What are the symptoms it has if the laptop screen is dying? When I turn on the laptop, basically there is nothing shown on the screen. Is the laptop using the same graphic card for the display screen? Because even I connected the external monitor to the laptop graphic card, there is nothing shown on the external monitor too. Thanks for the helps.

    Yeah, that sounds like a hardware problem to me. This thread should probably be moved to the appropriate topic. However, if you are still under warranty, I would recommend calling Dell support.
