Monitor flickers and goes to black

About a month ago, the monitor on my Dell Latitude 610 started to flicker. After a few minutes, the screen went to blackish (I could still see that the screen was on, but it was just too dark). I searched for solutions and found that it seemed like the backlight needed to be replaced. Well, instead of going to the hassle and expense of replacing the backlight, I just started using my wife's computer, a Dell Inspiron 600m. This was a good solution for the last few weeks until now. THE SAME PROBLEM STARTED TODAY!!! How could both computers have the same issue? Now I am wondering if there is a different problem with the computers. Maybe a software issue...PLEASE HELP!

One more piece of info, the problem is exacerbated if I unplug the computer from the AC power.
