Hi, sure is that the FL inverter has been damaged of the LCD, this one is located in the low part of the screen and you must remove the mask of the screen to be able to access it.

Unplug the laptop and remove the battery. The discharge the laptop by pushing the power button for 15 seconds while it is unplugged and does not have the battery installed. Then put the battery back on and power it up, and use your laptop as you normally would.

My dell inspiron laptop 1000 screen turns dark every few seconds. if I close the computer half way and open it,it stay bright for a few seconds and turns dark again


This is your back light on your lcd display, To prove that have a flash light handy when it goes dark point the flash light at the screen and you should see the screen and that would mean right there you got a back light going out or the inverter that powers it is going bad. Etherway if this is not your area of work you need to tech it to a computer tech local to have it repaired.

Thanks for being considerate with your ratings and feedback today.

The laptop starts but yhe screen stays dark


The Keybinding to switch monitors is Fn F4. Please try this, and if it still doesn't work, listen closely and see if it keeps rebooting, also go into a dark room with the laptop, and see if the screen switches from black to dark blue and back to black. If this occurs, it's a result of your OS crashing. If this is the situation please contact a local retailer to see if you can get a new version of your OS for free, but you may be charged.

Hope this helps ^^. Please dont forget to rate, Thanks

My laptop has no display


If the lights on the laptop are coming on and the screen is blank it can be a video card or LCD failure. Also other hardware conflicts can cause this. Try running the hardware tests.
First you'll have to power off the system.
You need to hold down the Fn button (Located next to the CTRL button on the left hand corner) and then power on the system. This will take the system to the diagnostics mode.
The tests will let you know more about the problem.
Incase you do not see anything on the screen in the tests look for the 3 lock lights above the keyboard. Note their status of the 3 lights.

Laptop screen stays dark. Hve tried the function and arrow buttons but no joy


Press the FN button and hold it down and then press the brightness functions. Most people dont know that also could just be the monitor or you have it on battery saver mode which will make the screen seem dark check the batt icon that might be the problem

Dark dark screen


that rubbery nipple when its pressed in is what allows the screen to go into sleep mode. Sounds like it might be stuck halfway in between. Go ahead and try to take out the top cover with the rubbery nipple on it. See if the screen lights up like normal, if it does then you know the rubbery nipple is the problem and just needs to be readjusted so it doesn't get stuck.

If it still stays dim then its either the lcd or the inverter that is bad.

Battery or Screen problem


Solution? - not sure yet but having read solution by Hector_ahab, tried various F() buttons in conjunction with Fn button. Pressing Fn with F6 switches between black and normal screen on my Acer Aspire 5920. Fingers crossed!

Screen light off


Back light has failed or the inverter or connector come loose. A repair shop job, unless you are up to taking it apart to check the inverter connector from screen to body of the computer Is it exposed or concealed in the hinge? If exposed try a little wiggle. But repair shop I reckon
