When I unplug my Toshiba Tecra 8200 with windows XP, the screen becomes dark, but not too dark. Please help!


Check your power setting preferences - although I am not familiar with your computer, some laptops reduce power to the processor and screen when unplugged to save battery power. You can normally change the settings so that it runs normally whether plugged in or on battery (although of course the battery will then not last as long)

MONITOR VERY DARK


Try using the FN key and the up arrow at the same time while tapping the up arrow, also make sure that if you have vista, you are not in "power saver mode". if there is no light at all coming from your screen, you may have a bad display bulb, this could also be a faulty invertor, but you would have noticed a constant flicker.

Laptop screen stays dark. Hve tried the function and arrow buttons but no joy


Press the FN button and hold it down and then press the brightness functions. Most people dont know that also could just be the monitor or you have it on battery saver mode which will make the screen seem dark check the batt icon that might be the problem

First test if it works on an external monitor. If it does you will need to clear the CMOS. To clear it:
remove the battery, unplug the cord, and hold the ON button down for 30-60 seconds. Then turn it on. Thats how you clear it on most laptops.
If it does not work on the external monitor, you probally have a bad video card and need to replace the old one

Screen went dark (almost completely)


check your power cord and make sure it's plugged in all the way, and if it is, check your brightness setting.

Usually it's the Fn key + an arrow key. Make sure the brightness is up all the way
