Hi,

The screen of my Dell Inspiron 6400 laptop has been changing colours over the last few days and has now completely died. It powers up but the screen remains completely blank.

Any ideas???

Yes, my Lenovo just did the same thing. It was flickering and started kind of pinkish, then would work for a minute when I closed and opened the lid, then black. The screen is dead, sorry. If you want to save any data you'll have to hook up a monitor and save to a hard disk (the reason I say this is Lenovo wants about 300€ for replacement!!). Unless with some kind of light you can read the screen and mouse pointer to do it without a monitor (I can see the icons but not the pointer myself).

Thanks for that Pete, I had an idea it would probably be terminal.
