Question about PC Desktops
Mine was the same - very feint writing but external VGA was OK
It is the inverter located at the base of the screen
Did a google on the part number on the bit (ASO23170376), sent me to ebay when I ordered for £16
Easy to fix - just 2 plugs

Could be the backlight of the laptop. When the laptop is running try tilting the screen back and forward till you notice what may be your OS...
If so your gonna have to contact a local repairer for your laptop brand...

Shine a flashlight on the dark screen to see if you barely
see the icons on the desktop. If so, then the LCD Inverter is bad.
Plug in an external monitor and see if the display shows up on it. It can be any kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vga cable to connect to your computer's vga port. If so that proves your video card is ok. The video will show on most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.
If you see no icons by shinning a flash light and the external monitor works, then your screen is bad. If you see no icons by shinning the flash light and nothing shows on the external monitor, then most likely your video card is bad.
