TFT screen on my Compaq laptop - blinks ON & OFF .

... but the 19" monitor also attached is OK. The TFT flatscreen works OK for a while, then blinks from bright, to extremely dim - not quite black. When I trip the microswitch, the screen comes back to full brightness, but then almost instantaneously goes dim again. The 19" CRT attached works without a problem.

Also, when I boot up the laptop - the NTFS (black screen with Windows logo) behaves excellently - no switching between bright and dim states. Driver problem - or the TFT screen needs reconditioning?
