Re: screen too dark

Hi, This might also work for you, However, this involves opening the monitor so not unless you're comfortable working with tools and open units, I would recommend that you ask the services of a qualified professional. Good luck and kind regards.

450SX4 15" LCD SCREEN is too dark, can barely makeout

Use screen adjustment to lighten, if you have done that try it with another PC,

If that works either your vid card (If you have one) or the mobo drivers need updating.

Too dark

This IS an inverter issue. You need a new inverter. Open the LCD and find the inverter model number and search Ebay.

Displays too dark..

take the bottom stand off, pop the back off usually 4 screws. look for a big pink wire running down fron the picture tube...follow it the big part on the pc board it is most like a black big component on your right closes to the back cover. ok this part is the x-transformer there are little screws you can turn but might be sealed in glue like polish. dont touch the the top screws for they the focus but turn the very bottom screw, closest to the circuit board, with a screwdriver clockwise braking the seal....just alittle 1/8 turn ...if u see white lines u went to far. I do this with a mirror and hook the pc to it and plug the monitor up just keep one hand away and you wont get a shock too bad if you clumsy. I turn the screen control clockwise until i just see the white lines or black background lightens to gray..then back counterclockwise till the gray is black and stop its perfect now...and u should see a alot brighter screen. adjusting the focus if needed turn the control back and forth untill see clear letters in small text. its tricky if u more than focus control u must turn them both then and concentrate on the center screen small text. if u didnt understand anything I said dont fool with it and take to a tv shop.

Compaq Monitor Model 7600

There are usually controls, button or knobs, to "Stretch" "Move" "Pincusion" and others... have you tried this, as this is what it "Sounds" like to me from ya description? If there are NO controls on the front to accomplish this task, at the REAR of the unit there should be controls marked to show the function. Below is a link where ya will find a Manual that may help ya.
