    4 years later and people are still trying to solve this? Shouldn't there be a statute of limitations on these trouble requests? Would be nice if those who post questions indicate that they solved their problem, else this website is just dumping ground and a waste of everyone's time don't you think?

The image on your screen is made up of two parts the lcd screen that creates the image that you can see dimly and a backlight that shines trough the screen brightening it so you can easily read the screen. In your situation in would appear the backlight bulb is burnt out and needs to be replaced. If your handy this is something you could do yourself a search on google for "backlight" and your specific laptop model will bring up available replacement bulb and quite possible detailed instructions on how to replace

The palm of my hand accidentally hit a button on my laptop, and all of a sudden my screen went dim..I thought it must of just hit the brightness buttons on my keyboard but when I went to go turn it back up...


Do you mean 'dim' or 'black'? If it's black you might try one of the the hotkey combinations of holding Fn + F1, or F2, F3, F4, etc. They do various things depending on the computer make. It will probably tell you in your computer manual.

My screen went really dim...very hard to see, after my husband was playing with the "F" keys. Now it only gets bright and usable when it's plugged in...any ideas on how to make it go bright...


You will see a picture of a circle with lines resembling a sun on one of the F# keys with a arrow up beside it and another with the arrow down. Hold down the key that says FN down by the spacebar and press the sun up button to increase light

Display light is dim


Hello, If you display light is dim, could be 2 reasons. 1. the Lamp(s) on the display or the Inverter (the unde supplying power to the monitor). It´s hard to determine from here without physical inspection. What you can do (because you have to either replace the whole screen or these components- not an easy task for the regular user) is connect an external monitor and press FN + F4 (twice) while you get a replacement.
If you really want to replace it yourself, just go to Ebay to get the parts and youtube on How to´s, but again I do not recommend this. This has to be performed by a professional.
I hope this helps.

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.

Dim screen


If its very dark and you can barely see anything its probably a bad back-light. I'd suggest to take it to your local Best Buy. And yes, they can look up PSP#'s with your credit card, but even easier by telephone number.

Toshiba Laptop - Dim Screen


Hey, sounds like the back lights in the laptop are faulty, if it is backlights you should be able to see the whole picture but will be hard to see and dull.

Heres one website that sells them, aint sure if its the cheapest place, last time i think i was about £80 for them. which is alot of money but depends on the laptop make etc.
