My System Specs

Default Laptop display shuts down

If I have a Dell Inspiron 700m on hand (could very well be any laptop, if I'm not mistaken) that after 1-2 minutes the screen shuts down, it's the inverter that's dying, right?

'cause if I use the VGA out, it's fine. But in Safe mode and in BIOS the screen's behavior is the same.

Well, take two. Inverter was replaced, and same behavior. Lappy starts, 1-2 minutes into Windows XP screens turns blank. If I use the VGA, it's fine for hours - so it's not the onboard GPU overheating.

What else?

Maybe the backlight is going out? Does it have a red/pink tint?

Also, when the screen "goes out" can you still see the image if you shine a flashlight on the screen?

Negative.

Nothing at all on screen.
