It sounds like your “Suspend Switch” is acting up. The Inspiron 1501 uses a mechanical switch to detect if the lid of the system is open or closed. A camber is built into the hinge of the system that activates the suspend switch plunger as the LCD is lowered to the closed position. If the switch is broken or nonfunctional, then it can be replaced separately. It is located under the hinge cover next to the right hinge on the system.

It could be your LCD inverter is going bad. CLICK HERE to see. It is relatively easy to replace. Remove the LCD screen bezel screws and gently lift away close to the bottom. The inverter is on the bottom right under the LCD itself. Usually 2 screws to remove and unplug then replace. If it is not the inverter then it is your LCD backlight in which case you will need to replace the screen.
