I have this same issue. Donald, so you are suspecting the bulbs? this system is just an inverter board and long tiny florescent bulbs correct? Mine is lit almost to XP showing up. Then it's dark. So if it were bulbs, would they still show up for boot?

first of all remove all the usb devices and start the system and it should go to the desktop
shut the system back and start the system on the dell logo start tapping the delete key and that will take u on the bios screen there u will find USB emulation put it to no boot and save and exit and restart and than connect the devices to the system ... restart to make sure its working fine

Turn on laptop, loads fine, screen comes up, then screen goes black. computer is still running and you can see it if you put a flashlight on, but screen remains black.


Try to adjust the back-light on the screen by pressing the FN and UP arrow to increase the light.

If that does not work then it means that your back-light on the screen has either failed completely of works for a couple of minutes and then it goes off. You need to have your screen replaced with a new one.


Sorry for the bad news.

Hi,
Pressing F8 during startup, just after the BIOS screen, will give you the
safe mode menu, including the option to create a '%windir%/ntbtlog.txt'

Spilled water on Dell Inspiron 600m


When you experience this problem it's usually one of these four hardware components.

inverter
video card
backlight
video cable

The only thing you can do is replace each item until you find the one that is causing the dimness.

I'd recommend getting it repaired through a local repair shop. Stay away from the Geek Squad.

Or you can go the d.i.y. route and buy the inverter from ebay for about $10-15. Problem is you'll have to install it, it's not hard but you'll have to put aside about 20-30 minutes to do it.

Hopefully this info helps. Let me know if you have any other questions.

Best of luck!
