Now, some of these D620s shipped with NVIDIA graphics chipsets. If you remember back in the day, there was a lawsuit and recall regarding these chipsets failing prematurely due to heat-related damage. One of the symptoms of a failed graphics chipset is the screen turns on but stays blank. If you plug in an external monitor using the VGA port and you get garbled or no output, that's a guaranteed failed graphics chipset.
