    So this can be intermittent? Sometimes I'll get a black screen as windows starts or while I'm working and then it may not start right for a week of trying. Then suddenly it'll work right again.

Hi! Only one thing can cause the display failure. The video card may be near to it's break point so be ready when it reached that time. You will need to have the video card replaced to resolve this. Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

If the screen blacks out randomly without any warning sign before or an error message after then this is a hardware problem, not a software one. To determine if it's in the LCD panel or the video chip you must connect it to a tv and configure it as a second clone monitor - you can do that in the as explained here
http://www.intel.com/support/graphics/intel945gm/sb/cs-022119.htm
If when that happens the image on the tv remains the same then the problem is in the screen - the wiring to it has a bad connection: open it and reseat them all very carefully.
If the image on the tv also goes then the problem is in the video chip and this is unfixable - the video chip's power fails. Either you find a new motherboard or you get a new laptop.

In most cases the problem occurs due to a short in the LCD's connection and the system has deactivated the LCD to prevent further damage.
To fix this hold down the power button until the system completely shuts down(no green light or operating noises)
then turn it back on. after that things should be back to normal.
In many cases this is a manufacturing defect but it's not always covered by warranty and in some cases when it is, it is a problem that is in fixable.
