    ok, the monitor was fixed for couple of months, but yesterday it went dark! It was only after 10 min, so do you think that it is the same problem? I will change the power saving settings. oh, by the way, this laptop was originally purchased in USA, now i am using it in Europe, could this be of any effect?


    Thank you for your help, and have a great day!

If laptop is running on battery, that will be normal, check the AC adapter cable.

If laptop does that even when connected to charger, change power saving settings.

Does sound like a power issue. Assuming it's windows xp, you can check to see if it is a poiwer management setting:  
Go to start, settings, control panel, display, and on the 'screen saver' tab at the bottom should be the "monitor power" area, click "power".
There is a power schemes area there. Check out what your settings are. Laptops often have settings for when plugged in versus when unplugged; when troubleshooting this make sure you are positive about if you are 'plugged in' or not as it will affect settings! :)
(On Vista go to Control Panel, Power Options; same thing, change your settings there)

Sounds like your inverter or your backlight is failing. The inverter is an easy repair, the backlight can be replaced but it involves taking the LCD panel apart, The backlight comes installed on new screens.

The LCD display dims almost to black after 20-40 mins.


Power save settings or it may have an ambient light sensor that automatically adjusts the screen to "match" the surrounding light. Power settings in the control panel will hold the key.

Dell inspiron 6400 display goes off < 1 min after switch on time


Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power it up, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight.

If you see a very dim image or black screen or flicking image on the LCD screen it means you have a backlight problem.

The buzzing sound is most likely the inverter problem.

Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

Dell inspiron 4150 video dim


The empty slot is for a mini-PC card, usually a wireless network card. The 2 wires are actually the antenna wires that connect to the wireless card. The dim LCD may be a problem with the LCD panel display, video controller or motherboard. Try connecting the laptop to an external monitor by connecting to the Video Connector located on the back of the laptop. If the display on the external monitor appears to be normal, then your LCD display panel on the laptop has a problem. If the display on the external monitor is dim then you probably have a bad video controller card or motherboard.
