I'm not quite sure exactly when this started, but it is becoming more and more of a problem. I want to see if I can possibly fix it or find a way around it until I am able to get a new computer.
I am currently running on win7 sony vaio laptop. The issue is that the lamp/back light goes out at some point. I believe if I idle too long it goes out and must sit shut down for quite a few hours before I can boot up again successfully. At first I thought it was failing to start all together, but I realized it was starting up just fine, the backlight was just out so my screen appeared blank/black.
I am able to use my computer at least once a day. If I shut down and restart more often than not it restarts fine. If I let it idle too long chances of it starting up again within the same day are slim. I am usually able to open it roughly 20-24 hours later after it goes out.
So I'm not sure if it's a faulty wire or driver failure or something. I'm not that computer savvy, so I require some help!
Hopefully this can be sorted for the time being.
