Dell Lap Top

The display went very dark where I can't see anything. Is it time to throw it out? It was working great until this happened. It is 4 years old and had to be been fixed twice.

Hi Robert,

You probably have two choices..one of them is obviously to if it can defy gravity on top of a tall building. The other is to press function and the up arrow to see if you can max out the brightness. You should also try to increase the light within windows control pannels or right mouse click the desktop go properties then to the display options to increase the gamma or lighting.

Another option is to see if its worth getting a new screen as cheaper alternative to replacing the whole computer. You may only want this if you are happy with speed of your laptop right now.

good luck

I think as per your question this seems to display resolution problem happens some time with games.

For this follow these steps
1. Switch on the Laptop
2. When you get screen before use F8 function keys for few seconds until you got a list of options.
3. Then select "Safe Mode"
4. After entering into safe mode then reset the default display settings to 800by600 and apply.
5. Restart the system.

Hope this information is useful

Thanks & Regards

I would completely disassemble it (it really isn't that hard), let it dry out, then put it back together and see what happens.

Monitor is very dark


I have to assume you have tried through existing means to change brightness and contrast.
These are generally provided for the user.

LCD screens are backlit via a fluorescent lamp. This is a high voltage device so the problem could come from either a failing lamp or the inverter circuit that drives it.

Access to the lamp varies greatly and to even check it may well be a job for a technician.
