SOURCE: Dell Inspirion Laptop Screen Randomly Flickers, Then Blacks Out

If this laptop is only a few monthe old, then it should be still under warranty. I suggest you return it to the supplier for repair or replacement under warranty. If you try to repair it, most likely you wil void your warranty.

If you don't have this choice then read the following info.
You most likely have a faulty CCFL lamp or inverter, To determine if you have a LCD screen, inverter or video card problem, read this and follow these 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 or appear black. 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 the monitor up first then the laptop, 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.

not to get to concerned just yet, a few tips, when you press on the top of the laptop case by the screen area in the back of the laptop do you notice the screen flickering off? and when you let go dose it come back on? if so this can be a faulty wire or bad inverter, they are actually both very simple to fix and relatively cheap fixes.

Blank Computer Screen


First I will suggest you to Return BIOS settings to their default levels. An overclocked or misconfigured BIOS can cause all sorts of random issues, including Black screen
After that restart your computer in safe mode by press and hold F8 keys until you get Advanced Options menu screen.Use the arrow key to highlight Safe Mode, and then press Enter, your computer will boot automatically to safe mode
Inn safe mode Update your graphic drivers from your system manufacturer site
If this is helpless then simply get Reginout that cleans your computer of temp files, history and cookies. Its also used to fix any registry errors.
Hopefully it will help you

I have a compaq paserio notebook and when I boot up the computer, either I get a blank screen or I get a very faded image that I can't hardly see so I can't log on. Most of the time I just get a blank...


Have you checked the brightness options for the screen using the HP function keys? Fn +F7 or Fn+F8 should adjust the brightness of the screen for that C306 model laptop. If adjusting the brightness has no response then try the next steps.

What happens if you turn the computer off, plug it into an external monitor or projector, and then turn the computer back on? If the video displays correctly on a computer monitor or projector, but it stays dim on the LCD screen of the laptop, then the laptop LCD Screen Back-light or inverter is probably going out. You'll need to contact HP for a replacement part or take the laptop to a certified repair center.

My phone is being very lethargic...there is a time delay between hitting a key and the response. this just started happening randomly and isn't stopping. any suggestion as to why this is?


Try turning the phone completely off and then back on. Cell phones are computers. Just like if you leaving Windows on and do many things at once, it will start slowing down.

Good luck.

Blank screen


if this goes blank randomly, it could be that there's something wrong with the monitor or its starting to die on you. if there's a factory reset button on the monitor, you can try doing it and if that is still not going to resolve the problem then just get it replaced if its still under warranty and if not then get another one.
