Try turning up your screen brightness (fn + up arrow); If this does not work it means that your fuser is broken and needs replacing.

Computers screen on desk top dark on phillips 190s


If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LED flashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp.

Blank screen on my dv9608ca laptop i changed power inverter and screen its very dark can faintly see desk top items. everything works when in connect to different monitor so can it still be video card


It sounds like your laptop's Back Light is out. The screen has two layers, the LCD display, which provides the image, and the back light, which gives it brightness and clarity. Unfortunately, it is no easy fix and typically costs more than a new laptop to replace. I'd recommend calling HP themselves if you want to get it repaired.

The back light is the whole of the screen, the screen is illuminated by a CCFL lamp (fluro tube) on the bottom of the screen. A inverter supplies high voltage to this CCFL lamp.

It may be caused by 2 reasons:

1. The notebook is not correctly configured for an external display - you may need to install the display drivers or update it.

2. The backlight inverter on the display may have problems and need repairs. Check if you can see a faint image in the screen.
