Question about Dell Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Laptop screen goes blank at random times.

My Dell inspiron 510m has been faithful for the last 3 yrs. Recently, ive seen the screen go blank randomly, and does not come back when the mouse is moved. If I just wait for a min or two, it suddenly reappears.
I keep the power options such that the screen turns off after 2 mins, But this is not the same. On careful observation, ive found that the screen doesnt really switch off but everything gets extremely dark ,but i could still barely see my destop wallpaper. can someone plz help me fix this? The laptop has been doing this more often nowadays and sometimes i wonder if the screen will ever return.

Peter, your system clock can be reset on your Windows screen, either in the lower right if you have the time function displayed (double-click to time and make any adjustments) or by going to Control Panel/Date and Time icon to do the same thing.
