Laptop screen way too dark

By maryunger3 ·
My monitor is so dark you would think it was off. if i hook up an external monitor it says "check connections" and then starts untill it gets to the xp logo screen then the monitor turns off. Is it the back light on the laptop plus a programing problem?
Its a presario r3000, pentium 4,512 mb ram,40 gb hd

Video problem

Yes, it sounds like the backlight has failed.
This is a panel that fits behind the display.
It will take a trip to the shop and maybe
around $50 to $100 for repair.

Laptop Screen way to dark

When your laptop screen is way to dark but you can still read the characters, it is probably a bad inverter card which is usually located in the bottom edge of your laptop display. The card is a thin strip about 1/2 in wide. This card is what kicks on you display back light.
