Dear,
This is a clear hard drive issue. Try reinstalling Operating System, If it fails again, probably you have to replace the hard drive

My Dell B130 laptop screen occasionally has horizontal lines accross the lower 1/3. I can correct by tapping the side of the screen a couple of times. Any suggestions please?


It sounds like your LCD is starting to go out - the screens are usually sectioned off in thirds or quarters, so when a third or a quarter starts having trouble, it's probably time to either replace the LCD, or replace the computer - because of the age of that laptop, it's possibly going to be cost prohibitive to replace the LCD. You can, however, hook it to a desktop monitor and continue using it just fine.

Dell B130 boots but nothing on screen and no boot up sounds


If you are seeing an shadow image on the LCD and you have video on an external monitor, then the LCD backlight has failed. The LCD will need to be replaced

I googled B130 LCD's and they generally run $125 to $200

Dell inspiron b130 won't boot up.


Connect an external monitor to the laptop and see if you can see what is happening on that.
It is a possibility that your inverter is faulty and will need to be replaced. They will normally power on for a few seconds, then cut out.
Remember to set the laptop to use the external monitor with the function keys.

Dell b130 lcd screen blank


Right under your screen there is usually a removable panel. Underneath there should be a ribbon cable that connects to the motherboard, make sure this is seated properly.
