Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Toshiba Qosimo G45 Screen goes dim but is still on.

I can't see the screen unless I hold a flash light to it. It will stay on only for a few seconds. From what I've found through research the sensor for closing the laptop is stuck. Supposedy there is a pin to tap to get it to work but I can find no such pin. Just got the computer today and Toshiba tech. support was no help at all!

Good morning, Chase!
I'm not familiar with that particular model, but will try to help. Most laptops have a switch that is activated when you close the lid. These switches are normally located somewhere around the hinges. What you are looking for may be a small area (1/8"x 1/8" or smaller) that has a pad, or something, that can be depressed. That pad may be level with the surface, or located down in a depression or hole. It may be square, round "D" shaped or whatever. One hint is to look for a projection of some type that is normally located somewhere on the bottom part of the LCD bezel and that projection will activate the switch. I have seen them mounted on the lower outer edge of the lid, but that is usually found only on older units. And yes, it can be interesting to find some of them. ut, rest assured that it is there, somewhere..
I realize that this is kind of generic, but hopefully will be of some help.

My screen brightness its lees


Then brighten it. You brighten it by Holding Down either FN, CTRL or DEL key + Hit the corresponding key for brightening the display.
For example on my computer I press and hold the FN Function key while I hit the UP Arrow key to brighten the screen.

The brighten/darken keys normally have the icon of a circle with sprockets around it like the sun or it looks like a washer that goes between a screw.

If you plug the charger into the computer without the battery and the laptop runs fine, then I would suggest to you that your battery is failing and will no longer accept the charge. On the other hand if the laptop will not stay running or acts strage and the screen dims and gets bright, then I would suggest to you that the charger's built in voltage regulator is failing and will damage the laptop if it continued to be used. A bad charger will also permenently destroy the battery condition.

LCD starts to display for about 2 seconds then goes dark.


lamp(s) perhaps.... with an LCD monitor (the desktop kind) you can shine a lite behind it. if you can see things on the screen it's the lamps... if you can't it's something else.

Dell AXIM Screen


First, to dim/undim the screen, hold down the power button for a few seconds. A quick press will turn it on/off. Also, when dimmed, if you tap the screen, it should be fully lit. FYI...to change the brightness in either the plugged-in or battery mode, hold in the scroll dial on the left-hand side and press the navigation button (big round one on the front) either up (brighter) or down (dimmer). As for the time, tap Start >> Settings >> System (tab) >> Clock and see if your time is off by 12 hours.
