Please provide the exact Dell Inspiron model number so that we can find the correct screen and hopefully a guide to help you replace the screen yourself and so do away with paying any tech or tech store.
Example Inspiron numbers include the Inspiron 14R, Inspiron 15 and Inspiron 1750 etc, hopefully once we have this information we can find you the information that you need, the average replacement Dell screen costs circa $55 - $60 for the 15.6" LCD type.

How to check if your replacement Dell Inspiron screen is CCFL or LED
You can only tell whether you need a CCFL screen or LED screen once you have removed the panel from the Dell laptop. There are no distinguishing features to allow you to detect which version it is until it has been removed. Once removed, you may see two thin coloured wires hanging from the bottom of the Inspiron 15R laptop display panel which will meet in a small white 'plug'. If you have these wires present then you require a CCFL screen. If not, you should order an LED panel.
Alternatively, all laptop screens should have a part number printed on one of the labels on the reverse. You can cross reference this part number with our list of compatible part numbers opposite the relevant replacement laptop screen.

You are welcome btw

It is a Gateway Inspiron maybe I should just invest in a new PC when I can.

BTW do you mean a Dell Inspiron as opposed to a Gateway Inspiron.

Does the HDD activity LED blink at all.
Do you have another display that you can connect the notebook to by way of the VGA port, this to see if the video data cable is not securely connected.
Another thing to check is that the Ram has not become loose but only after you have checked out the above.

Can you answer this please.
Is this with the AC adapter connected to the mains power, this in case the battery has lost all of it`s charge
Have you tried removing the battery and using the AC adapter to power the notebook.
If needed an example guide to help you remove and then reseat the Ram securely, see here
