When I boot up the laptop, the screen looks fine. When it gets to the point where I log in with my administration password, the screen goes almost black. I can still faintly see the screen and see myself typing, but it is black. It happens at the same point every time. I don't see any colored tinting of the screen. Does this sound more like inverter or backlight?

I believe I can help you. Is this a Windows password after it boots up, or is this a bios power on password before it boots? The bios password on a Dell is generally on a white screen when it's first powered. Get back to me, and I'll get you thought this.
Assuming you did not set an administrator password - you can hit the F8 key when booting - and then select Safe Mode. Once the machine boots to safe mode, you'll be able to login using the Administrator account, and you can go into the control panel to change the actual user's password.
If you did set an admin password that you do not recall, you can use Petter Nordahl-Hagen's Offline NT Password & Registry Editor to reset the Admin password.
