    I am so stuck! I have a Dell Latitude D505 laptop and had been working fine. I started to use a monitor with the laptop so i could watch the screen infront of me in bed. Shortly after i started to use the monitor with i had problems with the laptops screen, even when the monitor wasn't plugged in. The screen was working, however the light was off, you'd have to look very carfully and indeed the image was still there but with no light to see the screen! This happend for a day or two where it would start to flicker randomly sometimes untill after a few days, which is now, when the device is activated (such as when I slect the laptop screen and not the monitors from the display settings) the light comes on for about 4 seconds but then goes off! I can still see the image there but no light so unusable! I am using my monitor now but i will need my laptop to be portable soon! Please help :confused: :(

    Sounds like either your lcd inverter or your backlight are going out.

    You have to either do the repair and troubleshooting yourself or take the computer to a repair shop. There's obviously a loose/bad connection or failed hardware. The only way to find the problem is to check connections and replace parts.
