May be I should stick to legacy?

System:    Host: gnudev Kernel: 4.9.0-2-amd64 x86_64 (64 bit)
           Desktop: MATE 1.16.1  Distro: Debian GNU/Linux 9 (stretch)

Maybe legacy could work for you...

I have the same computer (Inspiron 3552 Linux Edition) and I have the exact same issue. Stretch boots (after LVM password screen) on a blank screen (to be very descriptive screen backlight turns on two or three times and just goes away for ever) even in legacy mode (with a straight debian BIOS install) ... Nevertheless, I can boot with nomodeset but that's not a solution (no backlight control, some graphic issues, etc.)

Have anyone find any solutions to these problems ?

Do you have an EFI-installed stretch on your system ? Can the lack of EFI explain this kind of issues ?

My system is UEFI booted and running smoothly so far, my system was not a Linux ready model (Linux was not offered as a purchase option) but I have been successfully running 3 OS's and have tested a few others (with varying degrees of success for different distro's).
If this is a legacy boot problem that could explain why I have not experienced it as I don't use legacy options...
