Display lights up then quickly goes dark

I googled this problem a while back, and somehow I found an article saying that this is a frequent problem with the backlight inverter with this model, but have been unable to find anything about the problem since. What happens is, when I turn it on, the display will quickly flash what I should be seeing, then it goes dark.

It could be your LCD backlight giving you problems. With the computer on and the monitor power LED green shine a flashlight in the lower left hand corner of your screen. Look for the ?Start? button, if your backlight is not working you?ll see a faint ?start? button if you look closely. If you do see the ?Start? button then either your backlight tube is bad or more often the inverter board is bad.
