or brightness or bright bars or light bars or whatever you call them, mine has em on the top of the screen and the bottom. I called Tech support today and the guy asked me to make sure they were still there in the BIOS screen. Kinda hard to tell as the BIOS screen has a bright teal border on top and bottom. Anyway after making sure the LCD connector was firmly plugged in he said the screen needed replacing adn I needed to send it in. I told him I felt competent enough to do it myself and he said this may void my warranty. I tell him I have read of several others doing it, and he said "Oh, it's an Inspiron 8600 ... yes that is a consumer replacable part" or something to that affect. I now have a new Sharp screen (was told the same thing as another user about getting a Samsung, can only replace like for like) on the way and if it does the same thing we will do this about 50 more times until I get one that works to my liking! I'll keep you all updated.
