Help.

My screen goes dim when I plugged it in. I tried to increase the brightness but nothing happened. It just getting more darker. Then, when I'm set it to zero, something weird happened. It just got little brighter. The brightness seems like its inverted (darker - brighter). I though maybe it just a driver problem. So, I open Device Manager, Display Adapters and check if it has an update. But, after installing the updates, nothing happened. Even when I change my adapter to Microsoft Basic Visual Adapter, the screen keeps dark.

So, I connected my laptop to my TV. Guess what? It work just fine. I think its the driver or my screen have a problem.

Anyway, here my system info :
Asus X441S
Windows 10 Home Single Language (x64)
Intel Celeron
Ram 4GB
Hard disk 100GB
Intel HD Graphics

I don't know what monitor is it. The screen is very dim to see the system info. The connection type is the HDMI and the monitor just one and a half year.

Well yeah the screenshot is gonna capture the graphics card is displaying not what your monitor is showing. In all honesty it sounds either like the monitor is bad or you need to try another cable to see if the issue persist on your display if it does you might have to look into replacing the display. Sounds like LCD deterioration or bad hardware in the screen.

Nope, the screenshot brightness is normal. So, its not the driver faults but the LCD display. Also, I've tested it with the HDMI and it work just fine.

Is the desktop too dark to see it?

 

If it is this could be either the backlight or inverter failing.  If this is the backlight you can shine a bright flashlight at the screen and you should be able to see the desktop.  If this is the inverter you will need to replace this to see if this solves the problem.

Yeah, I can see it a little. But it was too dark to see even in a dark area. The brightness seems to be 0%.
This happen when I'm trying to plugging in my laptop. The possibly cause this thing is the backlight have burned.

Did you shine a bright light on the screen to see if you can see the desktop clearly?

In all honesty sounds like you need to purchase another monitor as your appears to be dying.

In the OP's first post they posted the make and model of this computer... Asus X441S

 

This is a laptop which does not use a monitor as it has its own display.  This consists of a LCD display, a backlight, and an inverter.  We will have to wait for the OP to reply to learn if this is the backlight.

I honestly didn't check the model, its just appeared as if he was using an external display. But yes lets wait for OP to get back to us.
