Your screen or the inverter underneath it which controls the power to the screen is bad.

Dim screen acer 5100-3019


Try going into power option settings and taking the brightness to the max there. Start, control panel, power options, then you should see a setting for battery and for plugin. Hope this helps.

Screen has lines


More than likely the screen. The inverter normally causes things on the desktop to be barely visible. The whole screen looks black, but with a flashlight you can see the images are there when the inverter is bad.

Compaq presario cq61 screen went dark but can still see window faintly through the dark sreen.


Look at the LCD screen very closely and check if you can see a faint image on the screen. It's possible that the LCD lid close switch stuck in the "closed" position and the back-light stays off even when you open the LCD screen or turn on the laptop. The switch turns off the back-light when you close the LCD display to save the laptop battery power.

If no luck, try to remove battery and drain the power, then replace battery and turn on.

If that didn't fix it then there are 3 things that could have gone wrong:

1. Video cable connection from inverter to LCD got loose. To check this, follow instructions from step 3 on how to open the LCD and check if cable is fitted properly.

2. The video inverter is faulty
The screen inverter failure is very similar to the back-light lamp failure. In both cases the screen gets very dark and the image on the screen becomes very faint, barely visible under a bright light. If it's still under warranty, take it for a replacement. You can replace this otherwise - you can find the inverter under the screen, follow the procedure described at point 3 to open up the screen.

3. The LCD monitor is faulty
If it works on an external monitor most likely the LCD is faulty and needs replacement. If it's still under warranty, take it for a replacement. If not, you can do it yourself, it's pretty easy. Remove the rubber covers on the side of the screen, unscrew the screws take the plastic cover off, disconnect the video inverter and put in the new LCD after you connect the video inverter to it.

My screen is extremely dark. barely visible. external monitor works ok.


You probably have a bad LCD panel back-light. Time for the repair shop. Probably not worth repair though. Unless you have warranty or extended warranty.

Could also be an inverter board ... which supplies the high voltage for the back-light.

My Compaq Presario v2000 will turn on but the screen is just black what do I need to do to fix it?


Can you see any image on the screen in a dark room, using a flashlight sometimes helps. An image will be most visible right after you turn the laptop on, when the logo appears. If you can see the image but it is dark you need a new probably backlight inverter which is a relatively easy and cheap repair - I usually charge less than $50. JC Hunter

Screen on Toshiba M35x S149 Laptop blank/flickers


Ok, from the beginning. Can you do a cold boot and get into the bios? (is there an image on the screen then)
Secondly, can you connect to an external monitor and see an image?
Did it do this only when it was heading in to hibernation? If so, it sounds like the power management needs some adjustment.
If there's no image on the external monitor, you may have a video/motherboard problem, or it still could be the operating system/power management.
It all depends on if you have video in bios.
Let me know.
Good luck
