Having problems with your Dell Inspiron B130 Notebook ?

Lap boots up, shows dell logo then screen goes black but runs.

\015 Laptop boots up, shows dell logo and loading bar (first few seconds of the bootup), then goes black and windows logo can be very faintly seen as it continues to bootup and wait for me to click to get to main area. Eventually, it stops booting up noise but the screen is black and impossible to see what to click next. It stays on and the harddrive/comp has on noises, just can't seen anything on the screen. It sounds like it's working just something wrong with the screen. If I let it "rest" for a bit, sometimes I can get the screen to light up after rebooting from an off state. If it goes into a standby mode for too long then it stays black. If I try to reboot then it does the black screen thing all over again. Now it's pretty much staying black when I reboot. I don't want to damage it by continuing to reboot and shut off repeatedly just to get a 1 out of X number of times opportunity to get the screen working again. Is it the screen standby closing mechanism? Is it a video card? The monitor? What should I do? Thank you! :)\015
