Hi, display DIM cause by LCD or inverter Board (brightness controller). Might costly. Up to you either want to change it or not.
And using external monitor is best solution, I think so. =)

The back light is the whole of the screen, the screen is illuminated by a CCFL lamp (fluro tube) on the bottom of the screen. A inverter supplies high voltage to this CCFL lamp.
If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LED flashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp. Please click on this link and follow my instructions to identify the fault and possible fix :-

Samsung lcd 913v self test ok, no image when vga connected


This problem often occurs in samsung SyncMaster LCD monitors.

The solution is open your look for the LCD monitor power supply module (which have PCB connector to the AC power), on that board look for capacitors, now look for broken one which upper part is bloated, like the image below:

If you find a damaged capacitor as in the picture then you should replace it with the same value.

Typically this is a driver issue on the host (PC) side. DVI or VGA connection? Update the video driver. Some video drivers (especially older laptops) can't correctly send that resolution.

See if the problem happends in safe mode ( while booting hit F8 and aboot menu wil come up) if everything works fine then your issue will be the driver or a resulition that the display does not support or a refresh rate. Frist try to change the Res to a lower one and common (1024X768 or 800X600) also change the refresh to somewhere 70 to 75 and reboot if this dosent fix the problem try updating your video driver in safe mode

Monitor too dark....


Usually every laptop has the option of adjusting the screen brightness as you would want the screen to be pretty dim when running on battery to conserve battery life.
First thing to check would be just that.

Monitor dark


I had a similar problem with this monitor, mine was dim all the time to the point you cant use it, but the MENU icon was bright as new... also if cable was unplugged the box would float around as normal.... anyway I fixed it by taking it all apart and pushing in the socketed chip.. it clicked like it moved, I also pushed on the variable resistors on the power supply... now it works!!! First time since it quite working long time ago
