    Dell Laptop Common Problems - Freezing, Start Up Error, Blue Screen - YouTube

    Maybe look through all bios settings or reset bios to factory defaults ?

    quote from site ( http://www.daniweb.com/hardware-and-...en-during-post )

    I had a Dell Latitude D620 with this problem and the solution was to go in to the system setup (press F2 during post or F12 and then select from the menu) and under video enable "LCD Expansion". On some models I believe that Fn + F7 or F8 will work as well.
    I'll have a look at this but I can't actually see any of the BIOS because of the problem.

    Even if you use an external screen just so you can see the options in the bios ??

    After much messing about, the netbook finally decided to right itself. Went through about six different drivers to get there but it was eventually sorted out.
    Thanks for all your suggestions.

    You now have a fully qualified list of things to try for future reference inc ensuring its the correct display driver )
