    When I turn on my laptop, the Dell screen comes on, the XP screen comes on,
    the screen goes black, then the Windows start tune plays while the screen
    is black. The wireless card connects, the screen stays black. It does this
    on every startup. The one time I was actually able to start it and use it
    for about 45 min it suddenly went to the "preparing to standby " screen,
    went black and I haven't been able to use it since. It's an 8 month old Dell
    Inspiron 9100 with XP. Is it going back to Dell?

    Have you tried to toggle the screen between internal and external. I
    it's the Function+F8 keys (a little purple FN on one key and the
    other is F8 which should say LCD/CRT in purple).
