Hi are you sure it displays nothing or is the display dark ? try shining a light at the screen see if you can see anything. if you can see something on the screen then it is quite probably yout lcd inverter, this is a part that is responsible for lighting up the screen.
if nothing on the screen try pluging a monitor into the the laptop if it displays to an external monitor try switching between monitor and lcd this is usally Fn + F4 or F5 you should see a screen icon on the correct key. if you still get no display then my best guess would be the screen is at fault.

Compaq Armada E500 is working, but display is so dark, I need a flashlight to see the display to navigate. ideas please?


Backlight or the inventer is gone, check www.pchub.com for parts. I got one of these laptops for around 20usd, it may not be worth the repair. You can also use a external display, the laptop has a VGA - for a desktop display connector and a tv connector aswell.

VGA- blue connector 3 lines of pins on the back.
TV connector, yellow, round connector on the right side.

Hi,Have you installed new RAM recently?if so it might not be properly seated,it's worth reseating it and see if that helps,or try removing RAM sticks alternately it may be a faulty one.

It looks like your keyboard is wrongly configured, go to control panel, keyboard and set it to standar (101 or 102) keyboard. Also check your local (regional and language) settings are set to correct country.

Let me know if this solved your problem.
