Re: Dark screen?

Either it is set to use an external monitor, or the backlight or inverter is bad

My dell inspiron laptop 1000 screen turns dark every few seconds. if I close the computer half way and open it,it stay bright for a few seconds and turns dark again

This is your back light on your lcd display, To prove that have a flash light handy when it goes dark point the flash light at the screen and you should see the screen and that would mean right there you got a back light going out or the inverter that powers it is going bad. Etherway if this is not your area of work you need to tech it to a computer tech local to have it repaired.

Thanks for being considerate with your ratings and feedback today.

The computer will start up but the screen will be blank

Try plugging in a regular computer monitor, if that works then you will need to open it up and check the screen's connection. if you get now lights from the regular monitor then you will need to check you ram/memory to see if it is connected properly.

The screennn, keeps going blank!!!!

If the laptop is still running, the video card or the backlight could be the culprit. To see if its the backlight, this might work... Get a LED flashlight. The kind with a few lights in them. Not the bar of lights or the spotlights. Now when the screen goes blank again, shine the flashlight at the screen at every angle you can think of. See if you can still see the image of what you were doing. If you can, it is the backlight. If you or someone you know is good with a soldering iron and fixing digital electronics you might have hope. Google backlight replacement for LCD displays. If you don't want to do that, try adjusting the backlight settings with the acer power management.

Toshiba setellite black out

Sounds like the back light on the screen isn't working properly which will need to be replaced if this is the case. Check for a very dark image on the screen when it is booting up in a well lit room, if you can see the computer start up then it is the back light.
