This problem is associated with the LCD back light, it is either faulty (LCD) or the LCD connectors are not making proper connection with the motherboard.
I suggest you pull apart your laptop and reconnect the LCD connectors to see if it fixes your problem. Then you can decide to get it repaired (it won't be cheap) or just connect your laptop to an external monitor, which means you are desk bound.
Or buy a new or second hand laptop.

  1. Please try by reseating the RAM modules.
  2. Please check the VGA output port is properly fixed.
  3. Reset the BIOS to its default.
  4. Check whether the monitor colour resolution is out of range
If yes, set it to default.

Please check whether is works with different computer
IF yes, Check the VGA port.

When im on face book my screan dims and i cant click on anything, I refresh and its noema for a few seconds then dims again. Help


It may hace dying caps in power supply just like the one I show here: http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/Viewsonic%20VA721/

If you are going to DIY and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply (they should be replaced in a set), blown fuses; poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

Cant see anything diplayed on my computer MT3422


Connect an external monitor to the laptop and power it up, if you see a clear image on an external monitor, this means your video card is OK.

If you see a very dim image or flicking image on the LCD screen it means you have a backlight problem.

Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

Dell inspiron 4150 video dim


The empty slot is for a mini-PC card, usually a wireless network card. The 2 wires are actually the antenna wires that connect to the wireless card. The dim LCD may be a problem with the LCD panel display, video controller or motherboard. Try connecting the laptop to an external monitor by connecting to the Video Connector located on the back of the laptop. If the display on the external monitor appears to be normal, then your LCD display panel on the laptop has a problem. If the display on the external monitor is dim then you probably have a bad video controller card or motherboard.

Thank You.
