Compaq Armada M700, Dim Screen

I dropped my Compaq Armada and the screen is now too dim to be much use. Is there a dimmer adjustment for the screen and how do you access that?

There is a dimmer function that is part of the keyboard on most notebooks. You use the Fn key and some other key (Mine is F1 and F1) Look for what looks like Sun in blue print on the key. You should find 2 of them. One will be the brightness up and the other brightness down. You can try those.

More likely, something has come loose internally.
1. It could be the backlight for the screen is broken or a connection loose. You should be able to see the light when you look at the side of the display.
2. The AC power connector may have been broken and the notebook is only on battery power. By default most systems are dimmer when on battery power. Check to see if your charge indicator light is on. If not, that may be the problem.

I hope this helps.

How do i get to the recovery partion on compaq armada m700


Dear Lizanne,

To get to the recovery partition on your Compaq Armada M700, turn on the notebook and press F11 repeatedly until "Windows is loading files..." displays on the screen. Then, follow the on-screen instructions.

If your notebook originally came with Windows XP or an earlier version of Windows, try pressing F10 to enter recovery instead of F11.

Hope you may find these instructions useful!

Best regards,

Miguel L. Martins

LCD display is not working


You could have a defective screen - a defective inverter or a CCFL lamp or simply the video cable needs reseating. After reseating the video cable and the problem is still there then :- To determine if you have a LCD screen or video card problem, read this and follow the instructions. Defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom: Screen flashs on red/pink and off. Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal. Picture flickering with dim display or appear black. Picture flickering on and off. All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power it up, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight. Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case. The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills. Check out www.lcdparts.net for parts, repair service and DIY info.
