Screen goes black after 30 seconds


Yes, this is a backlight problem. However, it could be either the light itself or the inverter that powers the backlight when it fails like this. I'd recommend replacing the entire screen plus housing and hinges (it is often sold as a complete unit) or just replace the inverter (often relatively cheap) and then if that doesn't fix it replace the screen (the backlight is non-replaceably attached to the screen).

The other option is to simply attach it to an external monitor and use it like that. This is also a free way (well, as long as you know someone that has a monitor) to make absolutely sure that the problem is the screen and not anything else.

Black screen


I had a much older dell laptop (2001?) that did this. For whatever reason it had 5 or 6 drivers loaded for the monitor/display. Of the five, four were identical. I disabled the identical ones and kept the normal one enabled and this solved the problem.
