Why is my Dell laptop screen very unclear?

By wompai ·
Ey guys,

I'm working on a Dell Latitude D520 laptop who's screen is very unclear. The desktop and all its features are visible but barely. I'm now typing this message using a separate monitor, because the laptop's screen is to dark. I've tried increasing the brightness both manually and automatically. I've downloaded and installed the latest drivers and utilities.

Thanks in advance!

NOTE: When the screen's settings have been changed and the screen needs to refresh, there's a 50% chance of the screen returning to normal for a few milliseconds. The longest was when I installed the driver; it stayed normal for 2 minutes, afterwards the backlight turned off and the monitor turned unclear again...

btw, Does anybody know the amount of RAM or HDD space of the Fujitsu K-Computer?

Backlight lamp and/or inverter

If the laptop display backlight does not work properly in the BIOS setup sceens, or when running the Dell diagnostic programs for that model, then most likely the backlight inverter board is failing or the cfl lamp is. If the display has an orange-pink tint, that's a sure sign the bulb is going bad
