Need help with laptop. Dim screen. I have ruled out the inverter and the lcd bulb. Also have good video to external monitor.
Nice laptop. Acer Extensa. What to do next? Check cable as well.

Welcome to bleepingcomputer!

Hate to sound like a jerk because this is the most obvious thing to do, but have you tried turning the backlight up with the combination of fn and the up arrow (may be different on some laptops)? Hey you never know, sometimes people forget :thumbsup: .

I have tried this. But I don't think when you turn the brightness down this way, you can actually dim it completely.
Correct me if I am wrong. I have been messing with this laptop for a long time. Can't figure it out.
