Have you tried with an external monitor plugged in?  If you can see
the normal screen on the external display it might be the same issue
I encountered with my Dell Inspiron 8600.  The lid switch was stuck in
the closed position.  It's a tiny plastic pin and the friction with the
part of the case around it prevented it from coming back up when the
lid/screen was opened.  The system, thinking that the lid was closed,
didn't turn on the primary screen.  The fact that you've said it's
intermittent points even more in that direction.
