Dell does not turn on.

My Dell laptop does not turn on, it goes into the dell logo and the windows log, after I can hear a sound like it is going to turn on but it goes into a black screen.

RE: Dell does not turn on.


Please list Dell model number and version of windows. Example; Dell Inspiron 3543, windows 10

In the meantime,

I'd suggest you run Dell F12 Preboot Diagnostics tool to check the hardware on computer. Please follow steps below:

1. Turn off computer and disconnect all peripherals - printer, flash drive, external drive, etc....).

2. Power on system, quickly start tapping the F12 key continuously. In boot menu, stroll down to diagnostic and then click on it. After quick tests, click on hard drive and run Thorough Test mode. Report back any error code. Please click on link below:
