So I have a older laptop Dell inspiron 1521 it will not turn on at all just a black screen. I have not got to really use it my ex husband used it mostly cause I used the desktop computer I bought it from Dell yrs ago and Im hoping to get it to at least turn on again it may need some upgrades on memory and what not but I would like to turn it on. Any ideas?

 

 

Thanks

First thing I'd do...run Dell Diagnostics on it.

I won't turn on meaning it won't power up or it powers up but the screen is all black?

 

 

To bypass the battery make sure its plugged in and on charge.

 

Is the screen all black all the way through startup?

 

You could have a faulty LCD inverter which powers the LCD screen.

If the screen shows nothing you could have a faulty LCD inverter which powers the LCD screen.
