Re: partially dark screen

This sounds like a loose connection of your LCD back-light called the display inverter. squeezing, with your hand, the outer edge of the frame (NOT SCREEN) on the side affected could conform this.

The screen on my aspire 5100 is so dark i can hardly see it

hi mary welcome to the forum! 1)you have an Fn key bottom row left, hold down while also pressing right arrow, bottom right. Each press increases brightness. Each press of left arrow decreases brightness. 2)go to the manual of Aspire 5100 that you there is the option "AcerClearVision" in the software "AcerArcade". See manual:"Acer Clear Vision is a video enhancement technology that detects video content and dynamically adjusts the brightness/contrast/saturation levels so that you do not need to change the color settings if the movie you are watching contains scenes that are overly dark or too bright." So you opened "AcerArcade". There you take: "movie or cinema--> settings -->display settings" en there you change in the option 'color profile' 'ClearVision' to 'Original'.

Most likely, the problem is NOT with the motherboard, but with the screen itself. It could be either the flourescent bulb or the inverter board. Cost to repair should run about $175 or maybe less, depending on which of the two it is.

If you can't get it repaired locally, contact me for information about shipping it to me for repair.
