Most laptops dim when you unplug A/C power from them, there are also usually software switches or keystrokes you can press to change the brightness. Usually 'Fn' key plus another key on the keyboard indicated by a sun with an up or down arrow. If none of these apply then it becomes a possible hardware problem.

You have created a power drop with too much load on that circuit or you have a bad receptacle. Try plugging it in directly to the wall outlet in the other room. Let me know if this is helpful, we can go further if necessary.

You definitely have a Video Card Error related.
  1. Find Where Your Graphic Card located (asuming your computer has a separate card for video .
  2. Check the connection from your display to your video card (these connections are very thin wires running all the way to the video card or the MB).
  3. If the second step is clarified then have your graphic card checked. or have *********** Board chip set checked for bios and fermware.
Mostly you have a connection problem.

Dark screen with dull image in background


You may need to check your desktop image for your monitor and change it to something lighter
The external monitor usually uses your computer's default and not ncessarily the one from your laptop monitor

Without taking it apart myself, it could be some wiring from the laptop to the screen

I have a compaq presario 2500 laptop was working on it last night stepped away and when i went to get back on it the screen was dark like it was in sleep mode i can hook to a desktop and see screen.


Replacing laptop LCD inverter board is quite a job but this is what you need to do if it is under warranty Have HP do this.

If it isn't warrantied, you can buy these off of ebay for 9 dollars that's what I had to do it worked for me. Good Luck

My acer laptop screen is dark


Hello,

If your laptop screen is dark, it could be the backlight,inverter, or bad lcd. You can test the backlight by starting the laptop and give it a few seconds to load and take the laptop in a dark room and shine a flashlight on the lcd and see if you can see any pictures or icons. If you can, you may just need an inverter to correct the issue, If not, you may need to replace the inverter and lcd both.

If you find that you need parts to correct the issue. I would suggest that you begin with replacing the inverter first, as they are usually less expensive.

If you can supply me with the model number of the specific laptop you are having trouble with and I can try to locate more information on replacing the parts.

Thanks
