Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

The back light on the 17" monitor of my new,(almost 6 months old)Laptop, just dropped by at least 50%, while on screen saver for about a five minute period. I use it very little, I probably turn it on about three or four times a week, for a few hours each time, what could be the reason?, and what can be done to fix it?.

The monitor is usually governed by the power settings. It will drop after a certain period of non user interface in order to be energy star compliant out of the facotory. Use F1 to enter help and type in power settings, this will guide you on changing the presets.

My 4 month old laptop is not working


If the monitor turns black - maybe you have a screen saver or there is a fault with your display. Try using an alternative monitor or flat panel.

What do you mean by blockt?
