Question about Computers & Internet

Open Question

I have an Advent 7085, it is around 3 years old. I have had numerous problems with it but eventually got it fixed.For quite a while now it has been playing up. When i load up my laptop (using the power cable) it loads up, i enter my password and as the desktop comes on the screen goes dark, as though a light has gone out, the laptop does not switch itself off however, as i can still faintly see the desktop if a light is shined on to it. If i load up my laptop without the power cable it works, but the battery life is very poor so i am unable to use it for the amount of time needed. Any ideas what is wrong with it?

    I have this exact same problem, I am wondering if this is the backlight rather than the whole screen, can I just get a new inverter or something?

    Thanks

To isolate the problem try this:

Plug your laptop to an external monitor using the monitor out port on the laptop. Hit the "function" key and the corresponding F key that has the LCD Screen/External Monitor icon. Usually around F6-F8 or so.

This will test if there is something wrong with the screen and if the laptop is booting up past the BIOS.

Please comment back with results.

SOURCE: Dell Inspiron laptop monitor is gone very faint

Connect an external monitor to the laptop and power it up, if you see a clear image on an external monitor, this means your video card is OK.

If you see a dim image or flicking image on the LCD screen it means you have a backlight problem.

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.

The rechargeable battery probably needs to be replaced, if the battery is 1 to 3 years old have it checked. Go to www.ebay.com Type: make and model of laptop, refine search to battery.

Advent 5401 left touchpad button broken


Had a similar problem a couple of months ago, The left button started playing up, not working with every mouse click, it gradualy got worse till it was nearly unusable.. I suspected that the microswitch under the silver button had some dirt in it. After taking a deep breath I removed the battery and the screws that hold the case lower and upper halves together and was able to seperate the case front by about 3/4 of an inch. Then using a contact cleaner Servisol Super 10 and supplied flexible straw I squirted cleaner into both mouse click buttons. After waiting for cleaner to evaporate and resecuring case halves and replacing battery I switched on .... The button works 100%..

its more than likely going to be the camshaft dephaser, this is quite a costly job as it requires replacing along with the cambelt and auxillary belt, its a common fault

Advent HT2751A display no good until after 1-2 hour warmup - maybe


After 3 years, I finally decided to open up the TV and do some troubleshooting. Found out the problem, It was a blown capacitor Location C554 Capacitor value is 2200uF 16V - costs about a dollar to replace yourself and the TV works brand new.
