There is a screen brightness function on your keyboard, press the Fn key and the appropriate number key with a picture of a screen or sun on it. There will be two, one brighter the other darker.

If that doesn't work, you've probably got an inverter fault, or the ribbon connector has come adrift.

Different with most laptops but, remove power and batteries, check between the keyboard and the screen, there could be a plate which is clipped/screwed into place. Remove any screws and, very carefully, prise the plate off.

Look for ribbon connectors and make sure they are home and sound.

If one was loose, you've possible resolved the problem, if not, then you'll have to get it replaced.

Click and hold FN button and search for a button having sun picture with UP arrow if you press that button for many times while holding FN button, the brightness will increase.

My hp nc6230 turns on but doesnt bright up


I take your question to mean your screen is not functioning?
When you switch your laptop on count six seconds then press F2.

If you get a screen coming up with systems information - switch off then on - count six seconds press F8

In both cases if no screen it could be your video card at fault.

Display problem


What's the problem with the display?

Nothing shows on the screen?

No DisplayShine a flashlight on the dark screen to see if youbarely see the icons on the desktop. If so, then the LCD Inverter isbad.

Plug in an external monitor and see if the display shows up on it. It can beany kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vgacable to connect to your computer's vga port. If so that proves yourvideo card is ok. The video will show on most systems when you rebootwithout you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN(Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correctkey for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key willnormally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

If you see no icons by shinning a flash light and the external monitor works,then your screen is bad. If you see no icons by shinning the flash lightand nothing shows on the external monitor, then most likely your video card isbad

Lock symbol


Usually you need to press a key in addition to the lock key. Try using a combination of the lock key and FN or CTRL or SHIFT.
