Re: Compaq Presario 915US Backlight Out

First, are you sure it's the backlight and not the "inverter" or the motherboard not turning on the "brite" signal ?
Any way, to fix the backlight, you have to remove the screen from the laptop (in most cases) and then open the screens plastic case. Then, there should be a little circuit board at the bottom of the screen;that's the inverter.Disconnect both wires from it (there should be wires on each side of it).Now remove the screws holding the screen in the plastic case and lift out the screen.At the bottom edge of the screen,you'll find a piece of silver / metallic tape. remove this tape CAREFULLY . Also on the bottom edge there are tiny ( I MEAN TINY) screws at each end of the screen.Remove these carefully lift the metal cover along the bottom of the screen and the backlight is underneath this cover.

Do you do your own dentistry, and do your own exploratory surgery?
Probably not, because you would need to ask "how" to do it. :-)

If you need to ask "how" to fix your laptop, you should STOP, because the risk of damaging your laptop while disassembling it, is too great.

Pay a qualified technician for less than one hour of their labour, and get it done correctly.
