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.

It's probably the lcd, but it could also be the GPU, lcd cable and or the motherboard.

You'll have to have a local tech check it out to verify the problem.

It sounds like the inverter on your LCD screen is going bad on you.  You can sometimes find inverters for cheap on eBay, but you will need to get the part number from Compaq to be sure that you are buying the correct thing, and I usually say not to buy any that ship from Asia even though they may be cheaper, as many times they are knock offs.

Dim display


Check power settings as it may be in battery saving mode, for games it should be set to maximum performance. There will be settings for brightness and contrast possibly using the function key and cursor arrows. It may help to change the screen, which is moderately difficult if you have a disassembly diagram, but it is worth trying to change the inverter first.

Ricky, I had a similar problem which I overcame by getting a softpaq from Compaq for.

and download sp22442.exe (2.5 MB) - this should hopefully fix it for you. Chris
