Question about Dell Inspiron 6000 Notebook
Based on your post/description "barely make out the screen" you have a backlight problem which can either be the CCFLamp or the inverter that powers it. The problem may be component failure, heat related or cold solder, loose connection.
Since this would involve opening the screen display panel, electronic circuitry diagnosis and possibly component replacement, your best bet might be to seek the services of a qualified repair person. To give you an idea of the possible cost, pls refer to this site.
Should you venture into giving it a go for yourself, this site might be able to give you an idea how it is done. This link is a possible source of replacement components.
Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turn up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
