How to fix very dark laptop display?

jluppino

I have a laptop that has a screen that is so dark that you can really only see it when you are in a dark room with no lights. I’ve tried all the setting changes I could think of in the control panel, but nothing seemed to help. Any ideas of what the problem could be? Do you think it is a bad screen? I’ve never had a screen fail by just getting extremely dim before.

It sounds like you should consider bringing it to the manufacturer for repairs or replacement. It doesn't sound like something that you can service yourself. Often it's better to let the company who made it give it a look over to fix the problem.

That actually sounds more like a bad inverter board. Check the inverter board and I think you will find it is the issue.
