Try turning the brightness up on the monitor (stupid thing i know but i have to say it) if that is at maximum but its still very dull... then i dare say you have blown a blobe in the side of the monitor.. or the inverter in the base of the monitor that regulates power to the globes is playing up (but genreally the screen will be almost completely black when that happens) best bet is to try another monitor if you have one.. if its fine with that one then its the monitor! if not then you will probably have to take it to someone to get looked at.

Hard drive not showing in explorer


Maybe a virus has hidden it. It seems like you are booting up ok and everything seems to be normal since you are able to run explorer. The drive is there otherwise you wouldn't be able to run explorer.

Try booting up in safe mode then checking explorer or click Start/My Computer to see if the drive is there.

Turn off your computer, then hit the power button to turn it on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see Safe Mode. Select Safe Mode and let it boot up. Things will look different in safe mode. The desktop will be darker and the icons bigger, this is normal.

My mytouch 4g lcd backlight is dim but it gets brighter when i plugin the charger, is it the lcd? Or the connector to the lcd.


I'm not sure what a Mytouch is but on laptops if you don't have the power cord plugged in the display is normally dimmer or darker to preserve energy because it is running off the battery. You can make it brighter to some degree by pressing the correct keys on your keyboard. Once you plug the power cord in, laptops automatically display a brighter screen. This is all normal protocol.

Why is my picture darker than normal


It may be the backlighting has been readjusted by someone other yourself. Whenever you go on battery, I'm sure you've seen the screen darken a bit. This is the backlighting being turned down to save battery life. There is usually a blue function "fn" key that allows the user to brighten or darken the display. Look at the blue icons in the F1-F12 keys. The one to brighten the display looks light a sun and the one to darken the display looks a full moon eclipsed. Press and hold the fn key and tap the desired function key to brighten or darken the display.

Screen is too dark, barely can see the print. Is there an adjustment to use? was working fine a few days ago, then, has been getting darker.


Most computers have a key combination to increase brightness. This is usually Fn+UP for brighter on Fn+DOWN for darker. If this is not the correct key combo, look for keys that have symbols looking like the sun or a light, those keys combined with Fn will change the screen brightness. This can also be changed in Windows, if that is the OS you are using. Go to Start->Control Panel->Power Options and an opiton for screen brightness will be there. Also, right clicking the battery/power cord icon in the system tray can get you to the power options.

The screen brightness changes due to plug in or battery power


This is quite common actually I see it a lot. There really isn't any reason, it seems that when on batteries it trys to save power by Dimming Down, but it often just mucks up.. I always now set it via the keyboard keys. whenever I change from power adapter, to battery.

Check your display settings in the Power save part of Control Panel. You can set a brightness for battery and AC. Normally you set it brighter on AC and dimmer on battery (to save battery life) but if you've adjusted it for some reason that would explain it
