Sorry to give bad news, but the backlight is probably on its way out, this could also be down to the inverter, difficult to tell without seeing it. The acid test is to try the laptop on an external monitor and if it works on that, this confirms the dying screen issue.

If however it does not, your problems are likely to be related to the graphics chip on the motherboard.

Call Dell tomorrow... it will still be under warranty!

One thing to try is removing the battery and running it straight from the power adaptor. If it runs, you have a bad battery.
