Hi and welcome to Geeks to Go. When it starts to boot, you said the Dell logo flashed. Have you tried to get into safe mode when it starts up? Do you have video in the safe mode? If not, then either the monitor or the video card has died. You can swap each one out with a known good one to rule it out. Start with the monitor.

If you have video in the safe mode you probably have a driver issue.
