Question about Computers & Internet
It sounds as though either the backlights or the inverter(which supplies power to the backlights) has gone. If you can still see the desktop but only if you look closely and it is very dark, then the monitor will need repairing or replacing. If it is the invertor it can be done at a resonable cost - if it is the backlight it would probably not be worth repairing. Also it will cost just for an engineer to check it out.
