Question about HP Computers & Internet

1 Answer

My HP Pavilion dv9740us Laptop's Monitor has gone to almost total darkness and I cannot get the Alt/bright keys to lighten the screen so that I can see my desk top images. What can possibly be wrong, and how can it be corrected?

    I suspected as much; I had to change a broken right side hinge due to THE Notebook falling on the right corner, so maybe that fall also damaged either components you mentioned, even though it worked fine for 5 days since the replacement of the hinge.

Back light has gone out or the inverter that powers it. This is what brightens up the screen when you hit the alt/bright keys that you mentioned. It needs to be replaced. If under warranty send it to HP, otherwise take it to a computer repair shop near you, probably where you got it. Let me know how this turns out.

Was cleaning dell laptop screen and it went dark, is there a switch To lighten it back up?


Look on the function keys for a delicate blue description ... press the fN key and the brightness increase key.

I doubt you accidently unplugged the screen ... but dont discount that totally.

Good luck to you

Your laptop's monitor went bad and needs to be replaced. I had the same problem on an IBM laptop I had. Replacing the monitor costs between $120-220.

Locks screen when I close the lid on my hp pavilion dv9740us


computer has gone into hibernation. Best to shut that function off, and replace with standby.

If you want it to hibernate, press the power button once, and it should come back on to the log in screen.

Monitor brightness


This is normal for almost every laptop - it is to conserve battery power. However, if you want to adjust the brightness anyway, you can do so by holding down the "Fn" key, and then hitting the number key that has the blue 'brighter sun' making on it. This is usually the F8 key, with the F7 key being the less bright key.
