It may be due to OS problem or your HDD is going bad.

So what i would recommend is if you have a old HDD laying around, use it and try reinstalling your OS on it. If it works then your HDD is probably bad so purchase a new one.

Okay, does that laptop post to bios first? Example: You see the logo of the company before it goes to a black screen.

Latitude B130 screen works great then cuts out to complete black, works with external monitor


Are you sure that the display is not set for external monitor only? Also take bright flashlight and shine on the display. If you can see the images then the problem is with the back light and usually caused by a bad inverter. Some times you can get the back light or inverter bu most times it is easier and cheaper to replace the entire display.

Screen Black but Working


It goes black because it went into shutdown due to fault in the inverter circuits, check the 4 transistors in the inverter circuits for shorts, http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/Dell%20E173FPb/

Dell Inspiron 1525 Laptop..the screen goes almost black after 5 minutes.


The screen goes black while in normal mode right? So try to boot in safe mode (power on then keep tapping F8 then select safe mode). Check if still happens in safe mode.

If screen does not goes black in safe mode it means there might be a software or driver causes problem when running in normal mode. You can try the following (update your anti virus software then run a full system scan, uninstall the video driver then download and install the latest one, uninstall any previous windows update or you can system restore to the time when it was working fine).

If the screen goes black even in safe mode they try connecting the laptop to an external monitor if still goes black, if yes then absolutely no issues with the LCD panel. You can try (uninstall and reinstall the video driver if still persist then this might end up replacing video card or motherboard, but before doing that update the BIOS first).

If does not goes black in ext monitor then the LCD panel might causes the problem. Reseat the LCD cable or inverter if you can.

Screen gone black


Sounds like the screen inverter may be going out. The only real way to check it is replace it or take it to a shop and have them test it.
