Normally this is caused by the power inverter for the lcd. It is a small circuit board right below the lcd, that powers the backlight. If you take off the front bezel of the laptop you should be able to see it, it will have a 2 wire power cord coming out the one end, and another plug in on the other end with several wires.

9 times out of 10 the problem is just the inverter going out, check ebay for a replacment but make sure you get an identical model as the one you have, as they are very specific to each laptop. The inverter will have the part number written on it.

Will not boot

Sounds pretty desperate. I suggest you find the Dell boot disk and insert it before switching on. Then come back here to report progress. Wish you luck!

You can only change the back light level in the BIOS. Boot the computer and press F2 immediately. Once you are in the BIOS, set the back light level you want, then save and exit. When the computer comes back up, that will be your back light level.

Boot light staying on on display

Might have to get the computer reset. The code is probably locked in.

If it boots up then the cable is probably loose. If all the lights just come on and it does not boot then it might be the motherboard. Post back and let me know.
