Literally.....I really don't know what other forum to choose, but since my OS is Vista.......but this is not a Vista problem.
I need ideas....the backlight on my HP Pavilion died a while back, and I have been using a spare external monitor. Now, the driver or whatever sends the data to the ext monitor port had died to. Didn't expect that. And now I need to know, is there any way to see again? When I shine a flashlight on the screen, and if I put my nose so close it's almost touching the screen, I can just barely make out the desktop icons. Hardly enough to do anything though. Maybe a brighter flashlight and a second person to keep it on there but I can't think of anything else to allow me to move things to a thumb drive. Nothing is life and death.....just favorte games, pictures, videos. Just wondering if anyone knows of a trick to let me see enough to give my laptop a proper burial. Safe mode changed nothing.
Thank you. J
