Question about Dell Inspiron E1705, Intel Core 2 Duo T5300 , 17" WSXGA+ LCD, 1GB DDR2 SDRAM, 256MB ATI V... PC Notebook
Screen content is clear but very dark, can just about read screen if shine a bright light onto it. When open lid or press Fn-F8 or change the screen settings, the screen flashes normal brightness for short moment. Any advise appreciated. Peter
My computer screen has just gone dark. I can see that the images are there and can manipulate the mouse, though I can't see it. I have a Dell Inspiron 1150 and live in France
What do I do? My Inspiron E1705 works for a few minutes then goes totally dark. If I have a monitor hooked up doing dual so that I can continue using the laptop. If I change Graphic options and clone the display (same setting I used to turn on the clone monitor) it will come back and work properly for 5 or so minutes and then go black again. If I reboot it comes up and works again for 5 or so minutes. I have reloaded the drivers and checked the cables; does any one have any recommendations?
There is a power inverter controlling power to the display, in the monitor of unit, it could be this part needs to be replaced typical repair us$15 part us$45 labor if it changes by moving the monitor it could be the cable that passes through at the hinge about the same cost to repair.

Check your backlight settings, Power Settings, etc.....
You may have Vista (vista has other power settings such as a custom sleep mode which can fail sometimes to work properly with some hardware/monitor configurations).
So Disable any unconventional Hibrid Hibernation options k!
