Question about Compaq Armada M700 Notebook

1 Answer

The screen is very very dark on the compaq armada m700

The computer runs very well on an exterior monitor but the lcd screen is very very dark, thought you can see what is displaying but barely, the back lighting is not working any more, it does not appear to receive any power, it is not a major issue since I can use an exterior monitor, are they a quick fix on that problem ? is the circuitry that gives the power to light the lcd screen on the motherboard or in the lcd screen ?

Its in neither its a seperate circuit board that connects the screen to the motherboard and its called an inverter

you will need the correct inverter board for your laptop and will need to find the relevant instructions on how to replace / repair it and take care and have lots of patience and persistence as it can be fiddly

What would cause dark blurred display all modes?


I suspect the monitor is dying. Unless it is under warranty, you may need to replace it, as getting it fixed may cost more than a new one.

Hp laptop dark display


Shine a flashlight on the dark screen to see if you barelysee the icons on the desktop. If so, then the LCD Inverter is bad.

Plug in an external monitor and see if the display shows up on it. It can beany kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vgacable to connect to your computer's vga port. If so that proves yourvideo card is ok. The video will show on most systems when you rebootwithout you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN(Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correctkey for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key willnormally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

If you see no icons by shinning a flash light and the external monitor works,then your screen is bad. If you see no icons by shinning the flash lightand nothing shows on the external monitor, then most likely your video card isbad.

No display


No Display? Does it seem like the computer is running but the screen is black? Do you hear fans, disk drive spinning, lights?

If the computer seems like it when through the boot process and is up and running but the screen is black, then you either have a Video Card problem, LCD Inverter problem or the LCD Screen has gone bad.

The screen goes very dark within a minute after booting up = I can just barely see the menu page


When you say screen goes very dark when it booted to windows so it means that when you turned on the laptop when the dell logo flashes the screen was fine? if thats the case could you please try this. after turning on the laptop you will see the dell logo flashes immediately keep tapping on F2 and then it will show you the BIOS setup utility, please check if in BIOS setup display goes dark as well. If yes then try this, after turning on the computer when dell logo flashes keep tapping on F12 to boot menu then select utility partition to run the diagnostics. Please run test on the LCD check if display goes black when running the LCD test. Then try this when you sees the dell logo keep tapping on F8 to boot in safe mode check if in safe mode display goes very dark. Try this too, boot in F8 then select last known good configuration check if the settings on your display will be fix. If you can boot to safe mode no problem then uninstall the display or video driver. then restart computer.
You can also try to connect an external monitor if you have one just try to isolate if issue is on the LCD or the video card. If the display is dark as well in external monitor then video card needs to be reseated if fails then replaced. In situation like this most video cards is integrated to the motherboards. So replace motherboard.

The screen on my laptop computer has become dark. If I shine a light on the screen I can barely see the display and if I connect an external monitor to the computer I get a display on the remote monitor....


The LCD display connection is loose. Try reconnecting this and the display will be fine. The connection should be at the top of the base right above the keyboard under the plastics.
