Hey, everytime i start my laptop computer the backlight of my computer is off on my login screen [windows vista]. I can make out my little picture and the password just barely. So what i do is tilt the screen towards the bottom and then lift it back up. The screen then turned back on....any idea what might be causing the blackness at startup? Or what i can do to fix/check on this issuue? Thanks!

this may be worth a try,click start and type msconfig and hit enter and in the boot tab put a tick in no gui boot.that should give you a different boot screen,if it works do the same and untick the no gui boot if you want to go back to the default screen.its a long shot but worth a try.

Or, try after you have booted and have things working go to the power options in Control Panel and turn off the features about screen and see if it is a function of that facility.

Some laptop manufacturers also have their own power saving sofware installed ( my Toshiba does) so you might want to see if there is something there also.
