First, try booting into system setup. That will require hitting F1, F2, F8, f10, esc or del when bootup starts. It varies by computer and you didn't identify yours. If setup is also dim, your backlight is bad and needs to be replaced.
You could still use the laptop with an external monitor but that is not a very portable option.

While in use screen went black, but you can see writing but is very faint


most likely your LCD CCFL bulb went out... they are relatively cheap to fix and any reputable repair store could fix it for you... you simply order a new bulb and in less than an hour in most cases your system is repaired.

Computer turns on, starts up ok... can hear the start up music, hard drive lightworks ok, screen goes black... after 10 mins. when this prob. started.... now it stays on (see the icons) for abt 1 min.- 30...


have you downloaded any new software? it might be the culprit if not try restoring to an earlier date when the system was working properly (like at least 4 wks ago) .. work quick since you only have 1.5 min go to start/all prog/access/systems tools/system restore...note when it shuts down it will boot up auto and you must click okay when prompt

Internet explorer will not open


try to do system restore 2 - 3 days from the time you first experience the problem.

to do system restore ( for windows xp) click start, click all programs, click accessories, click system tools and click system restore. click next and after that you will be able to see a calendar with dates that is bold form, it means that those bold dates are your usable restore points and choose the restore point 2 - 3days from the time you first experience the problem then click next or restore. after that the computer will process the system restore and will restart automatically, if the system restore is successful click the finish button if not just click ok and try another restore point.

---------------------------------

if that doesnt work try to go to safemode w/ networking, at that mode try to use your internet explorer.

to go to safemode w/ networking shutdown the computer completely. turn it on again after 10 - 20 secs, as soon as you see the dell screen immediately tap the " F8 " key continuously. if that is successful you be in the windows advance menu option screen. use your up and down arrow key in your keyboard to navigate, choose the safemode w/ networking and hit enter twice. log in to your account or name ( not the administrator ) just to check if you are in the safemode w/ networking, there will be safemode word in each corner of your screen and the desktop background is black.

if you are using windows xp and you are internet explorer 8, try to uninstall the internet explorer 8.

to uninstall the internet explorer 8, follow the instructions below
- click start
- click control panel
- click add/remove programs
- navigate and look for the internet explorer 8, click it then click remove and restart the computer after.

Although connected to DSL,internet explorer cannot display website. I upgraded to explorer 8 and wasn't pleased by it's slow,sloppy performance.I removed explorer 8 and downloaded to explorer 7.Now...


When you click on the home icon that is taking you to your homepage (Yahoo! is generally the default). IE isn't the greatest browser, anyway...try downloading Firefox. It's a lot better.

Two problems vx922 Black screen of Death and vx910 no power


You may want to tey another computer or another cable or update your video card drivers. Otherwise look very closely and see if you are able to see a very faint image of your background picture or icons if you have any.

Really im not kidding it might be a backlight issue.

Well, first thing would be to turn off screen saver. Right click on the screen anywhere, go to properties, screensaver, from the pull down check none, apply and close. May need to reboot. then let's see if it's a screensaver problem. Good luck
