Question about Dell Inspiron 1200 Notebook
When you turn on the laptop the screen is so dark you can hardly see it, then it disappears and stays black. I can hear the computer on, but can't see screen! Just wanted an idea what I was looking at before getting serviced.
Try an inverter sold on ebay for 15 bucks
the only other thing it could be is the lcd backlight bulb,but rare
inverters make the light bright, and they do short out

How long have you had your computer? Mine has been doing this. The battery has died out over time, and now I think the adapter is too. It's kind of kinked near where it plugs into the computer (probably from the weight of the chord constantly being pulled down). It just gets a bad connection, a little less power, and goes dim like that. If I readjust the connection and turn off/turn back on the computer, it usually comes on bright again. But I ordered a new battery
