    Hiya, azzz949 & tans nut.

    this problem with the screen is on going now for over ayear and the only time it works is when i get the inverter replaced, which is more often than i would like.

    by the way if i connect to an external computer the laptop works perfectly. Which leads me to believe it is associated with the physical elements rather than the technical...also i dont know why their called laptops cos this machine cooks the lap off you after 5 minutes.

    Hi, please can you explain a little more. What are you doing on the laptop when this happens? Is it all the time or just sometimes?

Is it happening when u do not use the laptop for few minutes??
Or it could be something to do with the power on the battery which is reducing due to usage. Screen would get darker to make optimum usage of battery and give longer back ups.

I get an intermittent shadow on the left-side of myscreen. Computer works fine, except at times I have the shadow.

If you mean that the left side of the screen goes darker than the right side, then this is an indication of a faulty backlight. There are probably two CCFL tubes, one on each side of the screen. If one starts to fail, then that side of the screen will get less light and look darker. The tube may need to be replaced.

The laptop screen freezes and fades out slowly becoming darker and darker. Moving the screen however helps restore it back to life for a short while


Ok, because the screen gets better for a little while if you move it, this might just be a simple connection problem. The thing is, and it is quit common on notebooks, is that the data cable linking the screen to the motherboard sometimes get a little loose. Hence, the screen still works, but not properly.

I would suggest that you open up the unit and just make sure that the data cable is plugged in correctly. If you do not feel comfortable doing this yourself, you can take it to your nearest computer repair shop.

Hope this can be of help.

Kind regards

The computer still works, just the screen keeps getting darker and darker.

check and see through hp if there is a driver that might have been installed from microsoft that caused this problem. if the drivers where changed put them back to the original drivers. if this started to happen after an update. check your update settings and turn off the automatic update from microsoft. it is some times better to see what upsdate is being installed before you let it.
