You could have a defective screen - a defective inverter or a CCFL lamp.
To determine if you have a LCD screen or video card problem, read this and follow the instructions.

Defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom:

  • Screen flashs on red/pink and off.
  • Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal.
  • Picture flickering with dim display.
  • Picture flickering on and off.
All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp

Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power it up, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight.

Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

Blue screen problem


Persistent blue screen that results in Hard Drive dump? or Flickering Blue screen? Persistent: get a new hard drive if you have a friend to install it for you- not that hard to learn yourself, or buy a new computer. Flickering: try factory restoring it, make sure you back up your data from the boot menu first.

Dell desktop monitor screen flickers.


The monitor is about to go bad. Replace it. Borrow a monitor from a family member, neighbor or friend just to see if the flickering stops. If it does stop your monitor is bad. If the borrowed monitor flickers, you will need to replace your Video Card in the computer.

Flickering screen


Try an external monitor to the laptop and see if it flickers. If it does, more than likely your video card is going bad. If it does not flicker on the external monitor you probably have a loose video cable or lcd inverter cable. Go back inside and remove the 2 cables that go into the LCD Inverter that sits at the bottom of the LCD Screen, then plug them back in. Then unplug the video cable at the top behind the lcd screen, plug it back in and secure it with a piece of tape right where the two connections meet.

My screen below the taskbar keeps on flickering


that sounds like a either a monitor issue or video card issue. in most cases, if it is a video card, you wouldn't see the image on the screen. I would try the monitor, if you had it for quite a while, it is possible that the monitor is going bad.

I know it is not software problem.

Battey not charging, red light flshing


Check the power adapter with a multi-meter, the voltage of the power plug that plugs into the power socket on the laptop should be slight higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the adapter.
If it is faulty, there are replacement power supplies available on the Internet or at your friendly computer shop.
If the adapter is OK then the power socket on the laptop is faulty or this socket has a dry solder joint connection on the motherboard.
You can test this by wriggling the power plug when it is connected to the laptop, if the charge LED flickers and if you hold this plug in a certain position the charge LED stays on without flickering, then the power socket is faulty.
This can be repaired, but requires the laptop to be completely
disassembled. I suggest you get a quote first.
