Laptop monitor has become dim Tags: Laptops Last response: November 21, 2010 8:33 PM in Laptops & Notebooks Share cheerman1 November 21, 2010 3:28:44 PM --My laptop screen has become suddenly very dim, its very difficult to see. --The screen lights up during boot, able to see the startup screen and turns dim immediately -- When fn+F7 is pressed twice, the screen comes alive for 2-3 seconds and then once again goes dim -- when i try to increase brigtness using fn key, there is no effect --when an external monitor (tv) connected, the display appears properly in my tv. Although if i try to make my tv as my primary monitor it does not work (guess thats a different issue). Can you please help me with this issue.

This is usually the case in older laptops. If it is a newer laptop though, I'd get in touch with the manufacturer and see what they have to say about it. | Report abuse Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Laptops & Notebooks>Laptop monitor has become dim> Related ressources: ForumLaptop Monitor has become dim ForumHow can i dim the monitor for my laptop compaq window vista ForumLaptop LCD becomes dim when plugged to power supply ForumLaptop Display very dim ForumHP Pavilion DV8000 LCD Monitor Dimmed Out ForumLaptop is still dim .
