For sometime, whenever I rebooted my laptop or brought it out of stand by mode, when the screen image appeared, it had a red tone to it. The red eventually retreated to the lower left-hand corner of the screen and then disappeared. This had been going on for a while but everything seemed ok otherwise.

This morning, I was working on the laptop and noticed that the brightness would periodically fluctuate. I hoped against hope that this didn't mean disaster. I turned to work on another computer for awhile and the laptop went into standby. When I woke it up, I could barely see the image. It was almost completely black but I could faintly detect the folder I had left open on the desktop.

I shut down the laptop for awhile and then started it again. The image appeared, red as ever and eventually the red disappeared but...the brightness fluctuated like earlier today. It seems like the LCD screen is about to go. Any chances of fixing the problem or am I looking at buying a new laptop?

Thanks for the input, Freddy. As you are probably aware, I queried folks here, at CF and at TU and got a consensus opinion. It seems that the problem is at least potentially repairable. I took the laptop to my favorite computer place today. Fortunately, they have an in-house laptop guru and listening to the techs talk about what the problem could be pretty much matched up all of the forum opinions.

Incidently, it's a Dell Inspiron 8200. When they booted the laptop, they saw I was running Ubuntu so hopefully, that'll tell them that I know a little bit about computers. Wink
