I cam across your post by googling an issue I've been having with the acer aspire 3610 laptop screen going extremely dark - like you say you can just faintly see the desktop, but it seems like the brightness setting has been reduced to 1%.

Re: Acer aspire 3600 laptop screen black
Sorry for the delay, yes I sorted it out - Basically the backlight had gone in my LCD screen, you have 2 options....1. Buy a backlight off eBay and try and fit it yourself (Very tricky, risk of damaging the screen or 2.Get yourself a relacement screen, this is what I opted to do, found a secondhand screen on eBay for £7.50 and fitted it myself - Works a treat....!
Big tip: If you can't find your model on eBay, look for a brand new screen and it will have in the listing compatible models, then look for a used one on eBay for that different model, my laptop is a 4150 and got a used screen from an Acer 3000,

If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LEDflashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faultyinverter or a faulty CCFL lamp.

Hi there. Remove the laptop battery and the AC power supply, open the lid as far back as you can take it. Get a small flat headed screwdriver, now, you have to take off the keyboard bezel, this is the strip of plastic above the keyboard with the power button on it, the best way to remove it is to start by the on/off button by gently prying the bezel up from the lid hinge, once you have one side out gently pull it up using your fingers, it will unclip and lift away. Next you have to remove 2 screws from the top of the keyboard, these should be visible to you, once the screws are out carefully lift the keyboard up, you will see a ribbon cable that is connected to the motherboard, gently pull the tab up on the connector that the ribbon cable sits in and it should release it and you can now remove the keyboard and replace it. To re-assemble just follow my direction in reverse. Please post back with the results and for any additional advice if needed.
I don't see a problem with the screens it seems that they both have the same specs. The casing is where you might have an issue just check to see if all the clips and screws are in the same positions. you never know till you try
