Re: screen

The problem could be that you accidentally pressed some button so the computer gets darker so it can save more energy...

that tends to happen when you press Fn + (a but with a screen a sun and a +)

i hope that helps..
otherwise.. your laptop could be having contact problems on the little thingies that hold the screen.

Carefully open the screen lid and look at the back of the screen there is a type number [like LTN15ox3] you can then obtain a replacement screen from ebay searching for this type number.
However if the screen only shows a faint dark image the fault could be the screen inverter that powers up the backlight tube in the screen.
