Laptop screen no display RRS feed

  • Question

  • Laptop" Dell Inspiron 8600,  Running off battery or power pack.  Windows XP Pro SP 3

    Weeks ago when the computer was started, on occasion, it would not display.  Turn off and back on and all is well.

    THEN:  Screen came up during Windows load.  Welcome screen on and bright.  Then as desktop loads, the screen goes black. By shining a flashlight on it at an angle I read a message "Run a dll as an app encountered a problem and at one time displayed "Inverter detection test fail".

    I can work the mouse and the computer works perfectly when the light is shined on it but I can barely see the screen.

    Did a full system scan with Bit Defender and MalwareByte with no results.

    Ran a SFC /ScanNow and nothing showed up as bad.

    On occasion the computer will work normally but not that often anymore.

    Any assistance would be appreciated.
