Question about Computers & Internet
The screen will work when plugged in to a monitor but the screen on the laptop wont' strike.
If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LED flashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp.

I have had the same problem
This happens from overheating or from physically abusing the screen
I have an acer, which can take a lot of punishment, but i throw it around and keep it on 24/7 until it gets so hot the plastic starts to smell and melt
Awesome computer, it still works very well for the price (500$)
It developed blue lines on the screen lately and i know from previous experience acer will replace your screen as this may be a factory problem
If you're a freak like me who runs his computer all the time though, they aren't going to listen to you for one second and you have to deal with it
A) Dont use your computer as much (that sometimes fixes it)
B) Buy a better cooling deck
C) Dont abuse the screen (any bending or even the slightest tap can kill it)
D) If the problem doesnt go away, make peace with it and get used to it
E) Replace the screen (i dont want to, so now i have kewl blue lines on my screen)

there will be power plan settings in the control panel... you'll have to modify it to have bright backlight even while working with battery...

The problem is in fact the backlight as you are saying but i am not sure if it is the wiring to the power supply or if your backlight is just burning out. You can ask the company if you can send it in for them to look at it.

The vertical line is because the screen is going, it needs to be replaced fix the problem. Try searching on Ebay if your laptop isn't under warranty.

You may have a defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom: Screen flashes on and off or displays reddish pink hue. Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal. Picture flickering with dim display or appear black. Picture flickers on and off. All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replace the CCFL lamp.
To determine if the video card or the LCD is faulty, connect an external monitor to your laptop and power the monitor up first then the laptop, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight. Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight. It could be a faulty inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out, usually the CCFL lamp fails before the inverter.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.
