Thank you for writing to Dell Community Forum.

Please run the LCD BIST test on the system and check if you get any display.

* Turn the computer off.
* Press and hold the D key while pressing the power button. This will start the Laptop LCD BIST.
* The screen will display multiple flashing colors. Look for lines, distortion, or any other video issues you have observed.
* The laptop will restart when the test is finished.

Check with an external monitor.

Please private message us the service tag of the system along with your email id.

(Note: please don't mention the service tag or email id on the public forum as it contains your personal information).
