If it's more than 3 years old, it might need a new "cold cathode fluorescent" tube.

If you have hands as steady as a surgeon, aren't afraid of high voltage or flying glass, and know how to solder, you might be able to purchase a lamp on digikey dot ca or dot com for fifteen bucks.

Dim screen for laptop LCD screen

We have all ran into a problem where you go to turn on your laptop and the screen turns very dim to where you can barely see the picture.

Alot of times the LCD cable the one that goes from the LCD to the motherboard becomes loose. If you see it loose or not, unseat and reseat the cable at both ends.

You should at this point have video. If you don't then its either going to be a problem with the LCD or the inverter.

Good thing is when you replace the screen the inverter comes with it so you'll definitely be able to fix the problem either way.

Take a bright light and shine it on the screen when it is on. Can you barely see any display, but really dark? If so, the lamp or the lamp inverter has failed (some laptops use LEDs instead of CCFL lamps and has no inverter either).

Just hooking up to another display doesn't necessary tell you anything if it doesn't show anything. As sometimes you have to change a settings in the BIOS, use the Fn key plus another key that looks like a monitor, or change it through a display menu on the screen.

Back light to light up screen on my packardbell lalptop does not light screen up but windows can vaguly be seen on model have i deleted the drivers by mistake or is it a hardware problem

Chances are, you have a screen inverter that needs to be replaced. Here is a website that can help you do just that.

Or, if you have a pc repair shop near you, you might want to take it in and get a quote.
I hope this helps.

Laptop screen light failure, the screen has suddenly gone really dim, i can barely see the screen.

The Inverter board that brightens the LCD is bad. It is easy to replace, if you are a little tech savvy. I purchase them from this site:

I opened my laptop and the screen is just black

If you have no image at all, you probably need an inverter.

If you can barely see a faint image, you need a backlight.
