    When I turn on my notebook (Inspirion 8600) I see the windows start up screen, however after just a few moments the screen blacks out and does not come on again. If I boot in safe mode, the screen will stay on a little bit longer, but eventually will black out.

    Any help will be much appreciated, thank you.

    Have you made any changes in the bios? You might want to boot up and go to the bios and look at the video settings. I also worked on some imb t20 laptops that would go black screen in the boot up process because it was running a chkdsk. Just a thought hope all works out for you.

    I think it is something physically wrong with the screen. For the few moments that I can see the windows startup screen, the colors are all wrong, seems to be something wrong with the light source or something...

    Thanks again for your help,

    Ben

    Hardware issues really don’t surprise me I have opened many IBM laptops fresh out of the box and have a bad display, hard drive and other problems. I don’t know how new yours is, if you feel comfortable enough open it up and make sure the monitor cable has not worked its self loose. Just another idea to try I have had to do that as well.
