It's the Inverter, you have to change it. It's a common problem with laptops.

Sony Vaio E Series VPCEH37FX screen goes dark, but fine otherwise


If you can see faint dim images on the screen, then your back light or power inverter has failed. They are not adjustable or repairable and must be replaced. If you can't see anything on the screen, the LCD has failed and must be replaced. Sometimes it's hard to see the dim images so use a flashlight to help determine if there is any image on the lcd.

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

I have a CrystalView XT Android Tablet/Netbook. My son tried to dim the brightness on the screen and ended up darkening it out all the way. How can I fix this through the keyboard? As I can't s


i have the same tablet/net-book and also accidentally lowered the brightness past 4/10 of full brightness setting. I couldn't see anything on screen. I found that if i put a bright flashlight to/on the screen, I could see what was on screen, it was dim, but not off. I used this technique to maneuver my way to the settings, display, brightness, and turn up the brightness to where I could see it. I hope this info didn't come too late.

Dell inspiron 1318 lcd screen completely dim


The backlight in your LCD has gone out. You will need to replace the entire LCD. You can look on ebay or here, you will be paying around $300 for it.


Good Luck!

I have a Toshiba Satellite A55-S1063 the scrren is dim but I can still see using a flashlight. I have had the back light replaced once it worked great for about 2 weeks and then went back to being very...


Hello !

Since the screen is dim, the display's inverter board needs to be replaced.

If you were experiencing discoloration in the screen (pinkish lower light hues) before it failed, that would indicate a CCFL backlight issue. If the screen suddenly went dim on you rather than a slow degradation, the inverter would be indicated.

Hope this helps.

LCD dim.


If you have replaced the screen and the inverter, about the only thing left is the flexible cable from the monitor to the video card. I take it that the Fn+F8 makes no difference?

Screen extremely dim


I think you should look at the sleep button on pin.When you close LCD it should push that pin down(Stanby or sleep pin).
When you press or it get stuck, this pin will block or not send voltage to inverter so that the light on monitor should go off or computer go to standy or sleep mode.Check this one.
best of luck,takecare

Help Please.


Is it so dim that the screen cannot be read with shining a flashlight into it? if so this is a hardware failure not a brightness setting. let me know if it is.

If it is just somewhat dim but readable, there is probably a hotkey. Gateway laptops are all different.

Google search for your particular model and specifications. you will get the gateway support page for your notebook.

for example if you have an mx6550 enter this at google.com
