LCD periodically going "off or blank or just black"
- I have installed RH 7.2 on a Dell Latitude CPiA 366 for some time

(flash codes) during booting but the LCD may be black even from the
The LCD is not damaged or something. It just goes off from time to

stochastic phenomenon i can't explain or solve.
Does anyone has this problem too?
