acer screen problem

Hi my laptop screen fades, goes black then after a few minutes comes back on and is ok for a while. Any idea why?

Fading to black is an invertor problem but not heard of one that comes back on.

Brought up device manager list but can't see any exclamations marks. I notice that when it starts to fade, it fades from the left hand side. Could a bulbs or something be going and as I am not remotely technical, what would I do if it was?

If your not technical then you will need to take it in for repair - stripping a laptop even to do a lamp or invertor change is not for a novice.

There are many videos / tutorials on the net for this job.

Make and model?

Thanks but I don't even know if it is the inverter. I am getting an expert to do it. Thanks for your advice.
