The monitor screen goes dark, then comes back with everything enlarged and the colors wroong. Then, it goes dark again and comes back looking normal. What's wrong and what can I do? PLEASE HELP!! ...


could be with the monitor or video card/controller. first thing is to test another monitor if available and use a working video cable. if same thing happens, test if it is stable in safe mode. Restart the computer and press F8, then select Safe Mode. If display is stable in safe mode, it would be a video controller. Uninstall the existing driver, then download the latest one for your system through Dell support site.

The Screen is Dark and Cannot be Bright by the Brightness Keys. It Flickers when it first comes on but goes Dark. Can see it if you shine a Flashlight on the Screen. Also the Lid Switch if you Press that...


Assuming all of the connections are secure this is most likely due to a failing LCD inverter which is basically the backlight of the screen. If it's less than a year old cash in on the manufacturer's warranty. If it's not you might as well buy a new one. Hope this helps.

My screen is to dark


I am assuming this is an lcd. Usally when a screen goes dark the back lights are not lighting. This can be caused by
  1. Back light failure (not Likely)
  2. Inverter failing. (most common reason)
The inverter board supplies the voltage to the back lights, it also supplies the video signal to the LCD tab welds.

If the monitor is a CRT, first, attempt to degauss it. if that fails then the cost of repair would exceed the replacement cost.
