Display I have had this laptop for 1.5 years and ever since I bought it, I have noticed that my screen is not very bright. Unless I'm in a dark room, it is hard to see the screen.

Just a problem with the display - its very dark and invisible. I have checked all the settings including brightness etc. they all good and laptop functioning properly. Changing settings won't make any...

Take the laptop into a dark room.
If the computer is on, and the screen is "normal" (icons & wallpaper & such) but still quite dim, then the "inverter" component of the LCD screen has failed.

It's about a $20 part to replace, but you should pay a qualified technician for one hour of "labour" to disassemble/replace/reassemble/test it.

Cracked lcd screen. Found a lcd replacement without the inverter. What does an inverter do? do I really need it? Can't i just take the one on the previous lcd screen and apply it to the new lcd? and just...

The inverter is the source of all the "brightness" of the LCD display. So, unless you use your laptop in a totally-dark room, you need an inverter.

I would try your current inverter, to see if it works, before going out and trying to find/purchase an inverter.

Screen is dark, can see images in a sunny room.

I see this quite a lot. Sometimes it's a loose connections between the motherboard and the lcd display. Especially if the laptop is 3 or so years old. I'm assuming you did a hard reboot and got the same thing. A lot of time the backlight will give out on olfer laptops and the only thing you can do is replace the lcd display or hook it up to seperate monitor. Two things I can recommend are;
1. Plug the laptop into a crt or lcd external monitor and see if you get the same thing or if you actually get a good image.
2. Press [Function] [F4} and see if switching between exteranl and internal monitors makes a difference.

The screen on my acer 5000 has no brightness. If

You need a new screen backlight. I was an Acer Repair guy a few years back and its definatley a physical thing. Only other possibility is the dim seetings are set to pretty much 100. If turning the brightness up which you can do from the keyboard fails call acer repairs for the part number or send it in for repair.

Lenova laptop display problem

If the display back light iis dimmer then normal, then it is probably a faulty inverter board inside the laptop.

The inverter board is the board that powers the backlight lamp.

Check display brightness settings and power settings first, to ensure it is not a settings problem..

Gateway laptop 3522gz display went "dark" after 2 years.

It sounds like LCD backlight problem. Bring your laptop to a repair shop.

Screen went dark (almost completely)

check your power cord and make sure it's plugged in all the way, and if it is, check your brightness setting.

Usually it's the Fn key + an arrow key. Make sure the brightness is up all the way
