Question about Compaq Presario R3000Z Notebook
It's like my screen is dim! I can barely see my screen pop up the windows welcome sign, but I can't see my desktop icons. It's like I need to replace a light bulb or something. Any ideas on what's the problem?
There's a chance that it could be your brightness & contrast settings. (Which someone stated earlier) If not, there's a good chance it's the inverter board inside the PC. It can be replaced, although I don't know what the cost is because I've never had to do it. I'm taking classes for the CompTIA A+ certification (Industry standard certification) and the inverter boards were covered in this class. Hope I helped you out and good luck with it.

Your screen is dim because you need to replace your battery. But first make sure you are plugged in AC wise. Compaq notebooks will not run properly without a battery pack. When your battery needs to be replaced, the battery will not hold a charge. You also might try unplugging the AC power, wait a minute, then replug the power cord. Restart the computer and immediately push the shift key and the F-10 key. Sometimes this helps light your screen. But you should still replace that battery if it's not holding a charge. It will dog you until you do it. P.

Do check the LCD brightness settings..its usually on the function keys..you press the function key and the other key at the same time there should be a icon on the keys..some laptops have the arrow buttons(up,down or right and left) for controlling brightness...hope it helps!
