Hi I have a Compaq presario V2000 and it seems like the blacklight/inverter went out. As soon as I open my laptop, I can see my screen for about a sec then turns black. This will continue every time I close - open laptop. I can see my desktop icons with a glare from a light. I replaced the inverter with NO luck. My next step is to replace blacklight but afraid its not going to solve my problem. Does anyone have a solution for this? thx

What happens if you connect an external monitor? In the controlled panel and under power settings what's.the dimmer setting at. Lastly it could be a faulty lid switch that isn't telling Windows your lid is open and its keeping the lcd dimmed. If all that checks out then I would suspect the backlight
