My netbook starts up but the screen is extremely dark. In sunlight, I can see the images faintly ... appears backlight is out. Has the LED LCD screen gone bad? I can hook it up to en external monitor and the external monitor works just fine. Just nothing on the netbook's LCD. Any ideas on how to fix?
I had a similar problem whereby the brightness level would even reduce before my eyes as I set it in the adjusting screen settings...even wiped the hard drive and re-installed the whole OS and it still was the same after a short while...then one day it fixed itself with no updates or anything...but...it may just need resetting so have you tried to reset the brightness in the power options ? ...click on the battery icon in the right hand tray bar by the volume etc to reset.
