It is possible that the problem is in the video card - that it's just not turning on the backlight. But it's so much more common for it to be the backlight or inverter that I'd try to get a second opinion.

How to replace backlight on compaq 2570us laptop


What is wrong with the backlight? The computer screen is just dark? I would start with the inverter. The inverter is usually the problem when the screen goes dark but people think it is the backlight. The backlight alone is very hard to change too. Go with the inverter, I would bet that is the issue.

I have a compaq laptop that the screen is dark but beyond the darkness you can see the stuff on the screen, i took it to a repair shop and its not the backlight or the inverter.what else could be causing...


the number of these i have fixed..... i'm 95% sure its the backlight, though it could have some underlying issues with the connectors on the motherboard, and a slight possibility of it being the graphics chipset, check if its under warranty with compaq, if it is have them walk you through thier troubleshooting, and have it sent off to them, they will get ya fixed and on your way, try a power cycle though. pop out the battery and pull out the cord,then hold the power button down for a minute and put the battery and ac adapter back in, if it dont work call compaq. :D cheers

Screen is dark


Hi Yacob

First Run a diags on the dell laptop. You can initiate it by pressing fn+power button together and start the laptop. It will go to the diags screen. Tell me if the diags pass or not and then we will troubleshoot further.

Compaq Presario R3000 dim screen but not dark


Sounds like the auto-dim in the BIOS is set too low. Fortunately the Compaq R3000 allows you to adjust the brightness right from the keyboard. Hold down the [FN] function key while tapping the [F8] key will brighten the screen, while [FN]-[F7] will dim it. The settings are different for running on AC power and battery, so you must do each individually.
