    AARRRGGGHHH whats wrong with my laptop?

    I have just opened my laptop and the screen wouldn't turn on so I switched it on and off and still no joy!
    i could very vaguely see messenger and could see when the mouse moved over it but it is VERY dark.
    anyone know if i can sort it or if it will need to be taken in to be fixed?

    thanx
    lynds xx

    Tried your contrast brightness options?

    Could be the back light that may have gone

    Yeah the obvious one is the brightness, otherwise it's your backlight or inverter board thats gone...

    Have you tried turning it off and on again?

    Sounds like the graphics card is on it's way out, they seem to go if you use your laptop for long periods of time..

    It's getting a bit daft this throw away society thing isn't it :x
    I mean i spend most of my time on the little Asus eee pc as it's really good for the price in fact it's what i am using now!

    Its almost certainly the inverter. Check on ebay but be carefull fitting as they are high voltage.

    don't have a clue what that means but thanks :?

    Hi,

    Most laptops have a "function" key - usually in the bottom left hand side of the keyboard.
    Press this down and hold it down whilst you press a key on the keyboard which has a "sun" picture on it.
    If you look carefully at the keyboard you will see that various keys have more than one sysmbol on them. (the numbers 1 to 9 for instance)
    Anyway, probably the key you are looking for is in the lower righthand side of the key board.

    So switch the laptop on, press and hold down the function key and press down repeatedly on the brightness key. If the backlight to the screen is not broken then this might brighten things up for you!

    Regards,

    John
