How come the desktop icons are very faint on my computer?

Q: How come the desktop icons are very faint on my Dell XPS Laptop w/ MS XP Pro? They are so faint that I need a flashlight and a dark room to navigate! Scanned and cleaned with Vipre; no light on power button but will power up, cap & num locks lights up; cannot auto boot to OS disk or after F12 entry to boot to CD – it just goes to Windows then the faint desktop icons that I can barely see. I’ve checked the device manager – what else?

    Did you try a different monitor? If the problem persists post a link to a screenshot.
