Looks like the backlighting on the display has failed, sometimes it is just a lose cable, buy most often the LCD needs to be replaced.

to check the cable see the manual at http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/ins9400/ for how to get to the LCD cables (usually just under the cover that the power button is on)

I have a dell inspiron laptop, and a dell monitor hooked up to it, i turn on the monitor and it is very bright for about half a second then it becomes very dark, so dark that it looks like it turned off,...


Does the fault appear on the laptop screen aswell? It appears by your description that the fault is only on the external monitor. If the screen comes on for a moment and then goes blank as described, then this appears to be an invertor fault. It is very common among laptop and tft screens and requires the invertor inside the panel to be replaced / repaired. Simply plug the screen into another computer to confirm.

Dell Inspiron adapter problem


Sounds to me like its a motherboard issue, especially with the randomness of everything and different adapters causing same issues. Get the motherboard replaced if the laptop is still under warranty.

Dell E1705...Same problem...lights on boot up


If the screen goes dark after BIOS, there is a software conflict - either a driver or screen resolution was set incorrectly. a couple of ideas to solve:
boot from disk, or another hard drive - if this works, it confirms the software conflict - which would mean having to re-install the OS.

Check your backlight settings, Power Settings, etc.....

You may have Vista (vista has other power settings such as a custom sleep mode which can fail sometimes to work properly with some hardware/monitor configurations).

My Dell Inspiron 6400 is extremely dark. +brightness does nothing


Hi there.
Yes, if you can see a very faint image on the screen that indicates that the inverter or inverter coil has become defective and needs looking at or replacing.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!

Hmm, this could be a problem with the backlight inverter or something as simple as power settings.

In power settings from control panel there should be an option to alter the brightness lever of the screen when on battery.

Have a look in there and set it to default to see if it makes any difference.

Let me know if you need any more help.

Regards
