Why is Dell latitude E5400 backlight ok in BIOS but screen black upon start up

It sounds like if your screen stays lit fairly well during BIOS that is would be an issue with the Operating systems settings themselves. If you are using windows i would look for any options that may have something to do with display lightness darkness contrast anything really. Also see if you can hold the Fn key on your key board and locate a sun or light bulb with an up arrow beside it. While holding the Fn key press the light bulb or sun several times and see if that helps.

Screen went dark withoput warning

If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LED flashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp. Please click on this link and follow my instructions to identify the fault and possible fix :-

I have a dark shadow on the bottom right corner of my new laptop

OK Mel, it's your dime.

The LCD screen is bad. It may be just the Backlight, but since you purchased this baby new; it will have LED backlighting. There is NO replacing the backlighting, there is ONLY replace the LCD screen.

Primer if I may;

An LCD screen does not produce light.

(Click on the monitor image)

An LCD screen needs an additional light source.
A Backlight is the additional light source.

A Backlight can be a CCFL, (Or two of them), or a series of LED's.
(Light Emitting Diode)

A CCFL is a Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp. (Bulb)
Similar to Fluorescent lighting used in homes, and businesses, but on a MUCH smaller scale.

Average thickness is 2mm. That is a little larger than 1/16th of an Inch. (-> O <- approximate thickness)
Average length is almost as long, as the LCD screen is in height.

General example,

(View the last 8 photos)

Newer laptops like yours use a series of LED's.

A screen Inverter is used to convert the power (Electricity), from the laptop, for the LCD screen, and Backlight.

LED backlighting does NOT use a screen Inverter.

When an LCD screen that uses LED backlighting, has problems with the backlighting, the entire LCD screen is replaced as a unit.

Is the problem with the LCD screen itself? Could be. The entire LCD screen is replaced. Either way, replace LCD screen.

Now,....the above is just GENERIC information.
I need the laptop manufacturer name, and model number. The model number may be on the Palm Rest Cover, to the right of the Touchpad.
It WILL be on the bottom of the laptop.
Post back in a Comment.

This way I can see if there is a link to give you for a free Service Manual, and perhaps some pictorial information also.
Then I will guide you step by step, and we'll get that LCD screen replaced.

It isn't hard at all, I assure you. YOU CAN do it.

Regards, joecoolvette

(Psst, they don't have them anymore because it was a special sale.
Whoever the laptop manufacturer is, though; is obligated to repair it. Kinda hard to get them to replace the entire laptop. DOES happen though.

Laptop was like that from the factory. Is not the consumer's problem, is the factory.

I don't care if it came from Best Buy, Tigerdirect, Newegg, or your uncle; the FACTORY is obligated to repair it. DOES NOT matter if it was a Black Friday sale, Christmas sale, or an Easter Egg hunt.

DO understand about the time frame thing, though. Plus DO commend you for your willingness to repair. It is people like you that built the world, not sat by and watched)

Sreen is dark, can barely see picture

The LED backlight went out. This happened to mine. It's the light that makes the screen bright. If you take it to an electronic repair shop, they should do it for around $30 dollars or so. Good luck!

Screen went dark (almost completely)

check your power cord and make sure it's plugged in all the way, and if it is, check your brightness setting.

Usually it's the Fn key + an arrow key. Make sure the brightness is up all the way
