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.

Whirlpool microwave g2 - Panel lights but no text visible

It is a logic problem or at least electrolytic capacitors that dim the display too far. The display could be repaired if it isn't a ic (logic) problem if it is then you need the whole display replaced

My g60 -235dx laptop on startup error message say communication problem with I/O deveice, HD, flash drave , CD-ROM

G60-235dx. (2011 model, is my guess)
ok tell the full story please.
PC boots sequentially.
progress in that matters. so it seem windows unstated runs?
so you power on and what happens ?,
errors before windows logs in or after.?

my guess #1 is the main laptop battery is bad, remove it.
this pC runs on AC power pack endlessly, (AC power good)
dim screens. can be bad CCFL lamps or low power in the PC.
so again take out the battery
what flash drive, remove that, test the pC with no usb devices at all plugged in.

just an A.C power pack and no main big battery.
this PC has old CCFL lamp tubes that all go dim, fast.
turn yellow then dim the flicker and then DIE for ever.
all do. some in 2 years time never turned off. they do.

it the screen goes black use a flashlight if data is good on the screen the back lamp is croaking. (***** of CCFL tubes)
there are many cause of black screens, I can list 30. (will not)
but dim screens are only
1; main battery bad and shorted.
2: AC power pack near dead. (weak happens)
3: shorts in the main board, modules.overloading power buses.
4: CCFL dim as every one this old does, all do.
see flash light test.

My screen is very dim

boot to the BIOS (F2 at boot) and ensure that the LCD brightness is set to 8 and then reboot, if LCD is still dim, then, check the Control point system manager display settings and see if the LCD is dimmed there.
If no change, run diags Power + D at boot to run the LCD BIST test , if the 4 colored screens are DIM during the test, then the LCD has failed and needs repplacement.

My hp dv 2000 notebook is not get any dispaly on screen

Defective CCFL backlight may has the following symptom:
  • Screen flashs on red/pink and off.
  • Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal.
  • Picture flickering with dim display.
  • Picture flickering on and off.
All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp)
has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp

Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power it up, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight.

Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.
