Turn the system off. While holding down the D key, press the power button. After the system boots up, the monitor should start to display colors. If it does, the monitor is working. If there are no colors the monitor will need to be replaced.
If the colors do not display, you will have to determine if the video card is good or bad. If you have an external monitor, hook it up to the notebook. Use the Fn + F8 key combination to turn on the external monitor. If you do not get an image on the external monitor, the video card most likely needs to be replaced.
You can also run Dell's Diagnostic program by holding down the Fn key and power up the system. The diagnostic program should start and test your system. If you still do not see anything on the screen, then this would be a graphics/video card problem.
Dell's Diagnostic program will also test your system memory.
