I have a Fujitsu laptop computer (lifebook S series) Since I dropped it, the diplay light is not working. the system is boot up and I can see desktop screen in the dark if I get enough light and look at it from certain angle.
I don't know if this is because of some loose connection from the shock or brocken hardware. Please give me a direction to solve this issue.

Re: My laptop displays very dark
Unfortunately, (Isay that a lot on this site), your lcd screen is backlit with tiny flourescent lights, sounds like these have been broken not much to do except talk to a local tech and hope that he has an lcd screen to swap or steal parts from.
Sorry my prognosis is not better...

BIOS on a Fujitsu C-Series LifeBook b> Resetting the BIOS system of a computer can help revitalize the computer's usage. Oftentimes computers are "broken" when they are misconfigured in the BIOS menu of the computer before it boots up. When the settings are improperly selected, the BIOS prevents the computer from working properly. To get the computer back up and running again, the BIOS needs to be reset. The Fujitsu LifeBook C2111 has its BIOS system located on the motherboard beneath the keyboard.
Turn the Fujitsu laptop over with the computer powered off. Remove the AC adapter and push the battery release latch in and pull the laptop battery out of the Fujitsu. Remove the screw holding the hard drive in place and slide the cover off of the laptop. Remove the two screws underneath the cover that holds the hard drive onto its bracket. Slide the hard drive out of the laptop. Turn the computer back over and lay the screen down so that it is parallel to the surface on which the laptop is resting. Remove the small screw above and to the left of the keyboard with the Phillips screwdriver. Push the keyboard toward the screen until it disengages. Fold the keyboard over the screen and rest it there with the keys facing the screen. You will now see the motherboard of the Fujitsu C2111. Locate the small, round lithium-ion battery on the motherboard and remove it. This is the BIOS battery that stores all of the settings and password of the BIOS when the computer loses power. Hold the power button in on the computer to drain the BIOS system and leave the battery out of the laptop for at least 30 minutes. Place the BIOS battery back into the motherboard and reattach the keyboard. Tighten the keyboard screw that you removed earlier, and turn the Fujitsu back over and reattach the hard drive along with the covers for the hard drive and RAM. Push the computer battery back into place and attach the power cable to the computer. Turn the Fujitsu back on and the BIOS menu will be reset. or b> Start the computer and press the "F2" key while the system boots, if the computer is currently off. If already on, restart the computer and press the "F2" key while the system boots. The BIOS setup utility will appear. Press the right arrow on the keyboard and scroll over to the "Exit" tab. Press "Enter." A drop-down menu will appear. Scroll down to "Default Settings" using the down arrow key and press "Enter." A dialog box will appear, asking if you are sure you want to load the default settings. Scroll over and select "OK" using the arrow keys and press "Enter." All BIOS settings will reset to the default value. Scroll back to the "Exit" tab using the arrow keys and press "Enter." Scroll down and select "Save Changes and Power Off." Press "Enter." The computer will save the default BIOS settings and power down. Fujitsu Lifebook T Series b> Restart your Fujitsu Lifebook T Series computer. Press "F2" as soon as the computer starts booting. Enter your current BIOS password if prompted. Use your right arrow key to select the "Security" menu. Use your down arrow key to select the password you want to reset. Press "Enter" to select the password. Enter the current password when prompted. Enter your new password or a blank password if you want to clear the password. A blank password resets the BIOS password completely, meaning you do not have to enter a password to enter the BIOS or boot your computer. Press "Enter" to save your password settings. Repeat the process if you have multiple passwords set. Press "F10" to save all settings and exit the BIOS.
I can't guarantee that you will receive a e-mail to your address, because I just work here and you must contact me through channels. Now, let us see... If you think that the computer is alive, forget it! Dwelt by mysterious ghosts, boo hoo! However a computer is a complicated machine and can think for itself and make decisions, but not like any brain of an animal or a human. Computers have to have someone make their decisions. This is actually the one thing that they can do: they follow instructions 100%, had two memories: one short term and one long term. But still they are not living beings! I am sure that your computer will be fixed and you will be very happy for it if you can provide me with the following information: Name of computer, model number, Mother Board ID and a detailed description of what happened in your own words... Even though I am sure that you know, I would like to caution you, not to tinker with any of the controls on the MB. A slight increase to the CPU chip supply voltage, can cause such a high current that certainly the heat sink of any CPU cannot dissipate the heat and the CPU chip will commit suicide. The MB ID can be found in between the white PCI sockets, or else around the RAM memory sockets. They only list the serial number. Using the serial number on the IT, you can find the name of the manufacturer. So, we need that number. The letters and numbers are so large that you cannot miss it...So, I will expect your information! Thank you for considering our service... My name is Constantine (arzconst is my nickname to be recognized within <Fixya.com>...
Most likely a hardware issue already as how you described it. So your fan is not working? Your system is heating up already. It might also have gotten some damage on the video as well. You have to get someone check the hardware locallly.
Your LCD backlight is not working. It is fixable but it is not a repair I would recommend to the typical user. The reason is that you have to disassemble a fairly good portion of the laptop to access the light source and/or the electrical components that control it. If you have excellent attention to detail, patience, experience with the disassembly and handling of electronics and the tools then give it a try. It is also important to also realize that by doing it yourself you risk the real possibility of damaging your laptop beyond economic repair then it may also be worth a try.
Otherwise I would strongly suggest you take your laptop to the local authorized repair shop.
