Go to Control DISPLAY...and you should either find a adjustment there to brighten your screen. Or look On the "F-Series" keys or somewhere on your keyboard for a Brighten SUN or dark SUN, which you have to press the blue key along with that F series key to brighten or darken the laptop. Good luck

I have a black screen on my Lenovo T400 laptop. It seems to be working in the background. Anyone any ideas?

If you can see the OS in a bright light on the moniter,"It seems to be working in the background", I would thing it's the CCL or back lighting. Sometimes the small switch that shuts-down the CCL when you close the lid of the laptop gets stuck with age. I have repaired some monitor problems, the switch is located near/under the hinges. Locate the tiny switch and make sure it is moving freely, as in, up to turn-on CCL, and down to turn-off CCL. The other issue I fixed was the "ribbon-cable on the rear of the flat monitor. It get jared loose sometimes with a bump.

Thinkpad R32 - Memory was increased, now when power turn on, the screen is black. Need to turn Off power, wait few minutes and re-power On, then screen starts showing. Why !

I would guess two things, 1. you have a bad connection on the DIMM socket or on the DIMM fingers. You can try to clean the connections. 2. You have a bad DIMM or the wrong speed DIMM.... check to insure you have the right memory.

I'm trying to hokk up my old dell moniter,i brook the screen


First, make sure that your old dell monitor is working. Also make sure that the VGA out-port on your laptop is also working (by using a known good screen on it first)

Connect the Dell screen onto the VGA port of the laptop, then use "FN and F6" to source to the Dell monitor as external unit. There should be a mini screen that pops up where you can choose the monitor with the FN F6 key combination.

My screen is not working on laptop . I hooked it tp another moniter and I get start up and works fine. I thinks its could be 1)wire from mother board to screen. 2)Inveter gone bad. 3)Back light . Any ideas...

you can try to change wire but extremely hard to do so. most like your monitor has blown and to fix this problem you have to get the exactly same monitor for the laptop your better off hooking it up to and external monitor.

Laptop screen

Have you tried hooking up an external moniter? If so do you have video on that moniter? If you do have video on the external moniter then you most likely have a bad inverter or a bad lcd panel.I would replace the inverter first because it's not very expensive.If that doesn't work then you can replace the lcd panelAnd if that doesn't work you have problems at the system board level.

Display Issue

I think your right although have you noticed when you change a TV from PAL to NTSC,(and other display settings) that the screen turns green. Is this a possibility. If your LCD was fine B4 and the problem has occured without your help then sorry to say it sounds like the moniter is playing up. Anyway its just a thought.
Good Luck
