Oh, my bad. So I assumed that you also checked the kernel logs then. Are
you sure there's no kernel trouble _very early_ in the boot process?
I don't know about the Dell model you have, is it a laptop? Some
motherboard BIOS/ACPI are known to have a bug where they mis-report
the lid status of the laptop, and so on boot the computer "thinks" the
lid is closed and turns off the screen. Though the kernel would
usually complain about not finding an active screen attached to the
video card or something like that.
