Maybe press and holding the key Fn and pressing the last right down key on the keyboard, the arrow indicating to the righ hand, the monitor will see more brillant.

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.

Where can i find the power inverter in hpg62 screen


It miight be the backlight for this unit. It all depends on whether the screen came with the backlight. There is a remote chance that the display circuitry on the motherboard is faulty too. Try to plug a monitor into the VGA port and check to see if it is dim there too.

Screen is blank when powered up and i cant see anything on the screen


Hello.

Connect an external monitor / display to your laptop to see if your laptop's display is faulty.

If faulty, it is the display's backlight or inverter board.

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 rather than a slow degradation, the inverter would be indicated.

In either case, a technician in your area should be able to help. Evaluate to see if the repair is cost-effective.

Hope this helps.

When i turn my notebook on, i cant see the monitor. It is too dim. Sometimes it is fine and sometimes it is not.....


Failing backlight in the screen. Or, perhaps the VDU cable failing
Test on an external monitor to see if it works on that and this will eliminate any issues with your laptop graphics chip at least

Dell inspirion 2200 notebook screen really dim cant see hooked up another monitor and it works . how can i fix?


Hello,
If your screen is dim but still displays everything then please check if the screen's brightness has not been accidentally reduced. If that is okay, then you have a damaged screen inverter and it needs to be changed. If the screen does not display at all, then you may have to change your screen.

All the best.

Black screen battery charged new ac cord turns on fan is on nothing on screen wont go on to hard disk i guess


Your LCD screen is probably bad.. Can you see anything? It may be very very very dim. If it is very dim(use a flashlite to see if anything comes up), if you can see something but is very very dim then it is the backlight to your LCD screen and you need a new screen

Try connecting your PC to an external monitor.. then try getting it to work..

If it works on an external monitor then it is your LCD screen.
If it fails, then it is your video card or motherboard.

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.

Monitor


Sounds like you may have a bug, you could try re-ionstalling everything fresh, it may need a driver update. Check the funtcion keys. Sometimes you can turn up the screen contrast by holding the function key and hiiting the function key that looks like a white and black sun, Black is for darkewer, white is for brighter.

Also, ost laptops when on battery power, will auto dim to save battery power.
