What would cause dark blurred display all modes?


I suspect the monitor is dying. Unless it is under warranty, you may need to replace it, as getting it fixed may cost more than a new one.

Gateway m280 notebook black screen.


Why did you replace the lcd inverter? Were you able to barely see icons on the desktop which is an indication that the lcd inverter is bad? If not, then you need to replace the lcd screen. If you could barely see the icons and you replaced the lcd inverter, then the inverter is bad. Just because the inverter is new does not mean it works. If the video shows on the external monitor, but you can't see anything on the laptop's screen even when you shine a flashlight on it then the lcd screen is bad.

Shine a flashlight on the dark screen to see if you barelysee the icons on the desktop. If so, then the LCD Inverter is bad.

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.

Compaq presario cq61 screen went dark but can still see window faintly through the dark sreen.


Look at the LCD screen very closely and check if you can see a faint image on the screen. It's possible that the LCD lid close switch stuck in the "closed" position and the back-light stays off even when you open the LCD screen or turn on the laptop. The switch turns off the back-light when you close the LCD display to save the laptop battery power.

If no luck, try to remove battery and drain the power, then replace battery and turn on.

If that didn't fix it then there are 3 things that could have gone wrong:

1. Video cable connection from inverter to LCD got loose. To check this, follow instructions from step 3 on how to open the LCD and check if cable is fitted properly.

2. The video inverter is faulty
The screen inverter failure is very similar to the back-light lamp failure. In both cases the screen gets very dark and the image on the screen becomes very faint, barely visible under a bright light. If it's still under warranty, take it for a replacement. You can replace this otherwise - you can find the inverter under the screen, follow the procedure described at point 3 to open up the screen.

3. The LCD monitor is faulty
If it works on an external monitor most likely the LCD is faulty and needs replacement. If it's still under warranty, take it for a replacement. If not, you can do it yourself, it's pretty easy. Remove the rubber covers on the side of the screen, unscrew the screws take the plastic cover off, disconnect the video inverter and put in the new LCD after you connect the video inverter to it.

My screen is extremely dark. barely visible. external monitor works ok.


You probably have a bad LCD panel back-light. Time for the repair shop. Probably not worth repair though. Unless you have warranty or extended warranty.

Could also be an inverter board ... which supplies the high voltage for the back-light.

Dark screen/ Barely can see the desktop, I tried some suggestion of taking the battary out and changing the power manegement min to 100% , and followed all the instruction, but the problem still in pl


The screen is just defective. There is 2 components in LCD screen.
1. the LCD
2, The back light witch is like a big neon that makes the screen bright.

In your case the LCD works since you can see the screen if you get close enough, but the back light is dead.
You can fix this by basically replacing the screen.

Laptop fell from 3 foot high shelf. Display is barely visible now, can see it but only if direct light is shone at an angle.


It sounds like you broke the backlight in the display. You will need to replace the LCD screen.
