Having problems with your Dell Inspiron E1405 Notebook ?

My laptop screen will not shut off. I have a Sony Vaio about 6 years old. When I power down the screen shuts off while everything is shutting down but then when everything is off the monitor turns a light grey and stays on. The same happens when hibernating and sleeping. The screen only shuts off if I unplug and take the battery out. Just started today.
