Try using the FN key and the up arrow at the same time while tapping the up arrow, also make sure that if you have vista, you are not in "power saver mode". if there is no light at all coming from your screen, you may have a bad display bulb, this could also be a faulty invertor, but you would have noticed a constant flicker.

My laptop screen went very dark, I can barely make out whats on the screen but I know its working. What can I do to fix this situation on my gateway p-6860fx pc notebook?


Hi josue fernan...
You need to see if your laptop lcd screen is faulty and/or the lcd inverer is faulty.
1....Test the lcd screen:
Hook your laptop to an outside monitor and then start your laptop normally...if the picture on the external monitor is good, then your lcd screen is bad.
2....Backlight Faulty: If the monitor is still as dark like your lcd screen on the laptop then it could be the backlight that is faulty.
Please take time to rate me thumbs up

450SX4 15" LCD SCREEN is too dark, can barely makeout


Use screen adjustment to lighten, if you have done that try it with another PC,

If that works either your vid card (If you have one) or the mobo drivers need updating.

When I turn on my monitor I can see the Gateway letters come on the screen but then it just goes dark again. It comes on for a split second and then goes dark again.


joel_herrera, Yes, this is a very common symptom of a failing Switch-Mode-Power-Supply and/or Inverter circuit! Very common in 2-4 year old lcd/fpd's. How old is your's? Do you have warranty? Have you tried the Flashlight test? DO THIS! Reconnect lcd monitor to your fully booted PC with a known good WIN desktop screen. Then power "on" the HD2201 and tell me what happens and what you see or don't see after the screen goes BLACK! Shine a bright flashlight onto the screen at different angles and let me know the results. I'm louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel @aol.com BYE

Screen too dark


Hi, This might also work for you, http://www.fixya.com/support/t162607-dim_compaq_s510_crt_colored_monitor However, this involves opening the monitor so not unless you're comfortable working with tools and open units, I would recommend that you ask the services of a qualified professional. Good luck and kind regards.
