The first thing to try would be to turn the brightness up on the screen. There should be a FN (or function) key on the keyboard, and an associated key (usually under one of the F keys, such as F6, F7 at the top of the keyboard, or on one of the keys) that has a brightness adjustment for both UP and DOWN (brighter and dimmer). Try holding down the function key and press the key that looks like it would indicate BRIGHTER, usually a circle with some lines coming out of it indicating glowing. I assume you may have already tried this so...

This indicates that the actual LCD / screen on the laptop's back-light has failed. You can try to shut down the computer, make sure it is off and then take out the battery from the bottom of the laptop. Leave it off for a good 30 - 90 seconds and then go ahead and put it back in. Try turning the unit back on. If the screen is still the same you will need to replace the screen, or replace the whole laptop.
Usually screens are quite expensive, and unless you have expertise at installing them, I wouldn't try to do it yourself. Most likely you will want to buy a new machine. The good news is that you can still sell this machine on ebay, just make sure you list it as having the back-light "burned out" or something to that effect.

If you see a dark screen meaning look deep into the screen if you see a logo thru it then it means that the life of the bulbs is done you have to replace the screen is cheap on ebay i got mine there and it works fine to take apart is also easy. But before you spend your money attache an external monitor to it from the VGA on back if it show on the screen then yes your screen is bad if it does'nt then the board is bad.

The screen on my Compaq Evo N610c is dim

You could have a faulty inverter or a CCFL lamp, To determine if you have a LCD screen, inverter or video card problem, read this and follow these 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 the monitor up first then the laptop, 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.

Laptop dispalys to monitor but laptop panel cannot be activate


Thanks for all the details..

The issue seems to be with the video card drivers here...

Go to and download the latest video card and the chipset drivers

before you download ...uninstall the nvidia chipset or any display software from program and features.

after you have installed the software.. go to the nvidia control panel > setup multiple monitors. and browse throughout the options >
It should be dual display and not extended display.

Also try with a new user profile...

Hope this helps..

Sounds like video failure. If your video is integrated as most laptops are, it will require a motherboard replacement.
