Question about HP NX9010 Notebook
When I switch on my laptop the screen is very dark and I cannot do any work. I can connect it up to a monitor then it is fine. It is quite old and no longer under guarantee. Would it be advisable to get it repaired?
Based on your post/description that the laptop still works using an external monitor, then perhaps what is at fault is your laptop's display. Chances are that it is the CCFLamp (Cold Cathode Florescent) that provides that backlighting or even the inverter that powers it. In some extreme case, it is the LCD display screen itself that is at fault. You can verify that it is the CCFLamp/Inverter by shining a flashlight at the darkened screen while the unit is operating. Some semblance of your desktop would be visible albeit too dark to be of use.
If indeed you have verified that it is the screen backlight that is at fault, it is, from a technical point of view reasonable to repair. Your concern would be local availability of the replacement part, cost of shipping (if otherwise) and local qualified service personnel for the job.
In some areas/regions, cost of repair would not exceed 100USD if it is the CCFLamp and/or the inverter.
Hope that this be of some help/idea. pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.

Ok i am having the same issue with an NX9010 but we replaced the lcd inverter and back light ... took the screen assy off the laptop and put it on another one and it works fine. Any settings maybe to turn off the backlight on this model? or can this be a motherboard issue??
