Having problems with your Dell PC Laptops ?

Laptop screen goes blank at random times.

\015 My Dell inspiron 510m has been faithful for the last 3 yrs. Recently, ive seen the screen go blank randomly, and does not come back when the mouse is moved. If I just wait for a min or two, it suddenly reappears. I keep the power options such that the screen turns off after 2 mins, But this is not the same. On careful observation, ive found that the screen doesnt really switch off but everything gets extremely dark ,but i could still barely see my destop wallpaper. can someone plz help me fix this? The laptop has been doing this more often nowadays and sometimes i wonder if the screen will ever return.\015
