Hi, what has happened is that your backlight has failed, that or the Inverter that drives it has, or sometimes both.
You need to get this fixed, replaced, this can be done quite cheaply. or you could DIY.
I have given you a link for your service manual below, in here it shows you how to replace the LCD backlight and inverter as necessary.
You can get parts from eBay, or straight from the manufacturer, the service manual also has part numbers too.

I have had the backlight and inverter replaced but still dark screen--Could you help? it is a dell latitude d610. Can I brighten the screen and would a new battery help? Thanks


You can use the function keys to try brightening the screen, but it doesn't seem like it would help. Hold down the function key (the blue "Fn" key next to the Windows logo key) and press the up arrow in the lower right corner of the keyboard repeatedly. Every time you press the arrow (with the function key held down) it should brighten the screen by one degree.

If the backlight and inverter have both been replaced, the problem is most likely either the screen itself, or a pinched cable somewhere in the connection between the screen and the motherboard or video card. If you know how to take the laptop apart, you can check for pinched cables or harnesses -- if you don't see any, it's most likely the screen.

Dim screen


Its going to be either the lcd or the inverter more then likely. Go ahead and unhook the lcd cable from the motherboard and the back of the LCD. Reseat the cable into the LCD and the motherboard. If its still dim then the best thing to do is to replace the LCD cause it comes with the inverter.

My laptop is very dark and holding fn and the sun


The Back-light on your LCD screen is bad, your crystals aren't illuminating, so it is dark.... very dark.

You need a new LCD screen.

Sorry.

Password


is this a bios password (you enter on a black screen with white writing) or your windows logon password.

If its your windows logon reboot, and before the windows logo appears hold F8 for safe mode. at the logon prompt clear the user and type Administrator for the use and leave the password blank. From there you can go to the control panel and clear the user's password.
