Subject:  Dell laptop screen and inverter problem Date:  3/31/2008  8:35 AM

I recently replaced the inverter in my Dell B130 laptop because the screen was blank (very very very dim actually). That got it running again, but within a few days, the screen started going blank again, only not all the time. Now it randomly goes blank every few minutes (not at any constant time period), and the only way to bring it back is close the lid and open it again, which gives me another 30 seconds to a few minutes of use. Any ideas what causes this? I would appreciate your thoughts.
