Specs: Windows XP
Dell Inspiron 1300, the screen has gone darker but still usable. However when i slightly twist the top left of the screen it lights back up, is this just a loose connection somewhere? If so how do i fix it or do i need to replace something?

I have had this before a few times and its mostly a loose connection to the inverter
Its most likely the invertor or the connection to it.
you have to remove the 4 rubber like pads that cover the screws on the laptop lid (the ones that stop the lid from going full down on the keyboard)
then remove the 4 screws and prise the like frame away from the lid (most click out all the way round )
then the inverter is at the middle shaped like a rectangle
push the white connector in as they often get loose
then put everything back together and glue the rubber feet back on the screws

btw you might find a tutorial online if you search for it but i dont know if you are allowed to link here or not i cant remember

Apologies for late reply, not had internet connection for a while.

Thanks for the info.

I tried this and it seemed to work for a while. However the problem has come back and now it sometimes goes really bright/white and you cannot make anything out on the screen. Any further suggestions?
