    The screen on my Inspiron 8500 wont come on after a reboot. I have have to sit there and hard restart it with the power button several times (which is probably bad for all sorts of things) and finally once it will decide to give me display. From that point I just put the computer on standby whenever Im not using it, but thats not always possible. No amount of tilting or movement seems to have any effect on this, it seems totally random when it will decide to come on.

    Oh and the VGA port works every time, and it works every time coming on from standby, but not startup.

    possible loose ZIF connector inside. Would require disassembly to diagonose.
