Windows 7: Laptop screen blacks out randomly

I am having the same issue. Did the new bulb solve the problem?

MS Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit SP1

Sorry for the long delay. I did buy a new backlight bulb for it off eBay, and had a heck of a time installing it. I don't recommend anyone go that route unless they're REALLY confident in their repair abilities and have a lot of time. It took me about 8 hours, start to finish. Maybe other laptop brands will be easier, but mine was a nightmare. Anyway, here's one of the tutorials I followed to install it: Laptop Repair Help How to replace laptop backlight lamp (CCFL)

It now works great. Thanks for everyone's input.

EDIT- Sorry to everyone who helped me, it looks like it's been too long since you all posted for me to rep you. I didn't know there was any kind of time limit to repping people. So I guess written thanks is the best thing I can offer at this point. :)
