Dark screen

Discussion in 'Computer Information' started by Stephen DiPasquale, Nov 23, 2005.

  1. My daughter has a Compaq Presario 2100 laptop about three years old. The
    screen is almost totally dark, you can see a faint image on it. Does this
    mean the screen is shot or is a cost efficient repair possible? Any
    knowledge of this problem is appreciated before I have to purchase a pre
    Christmas present.

  2. It sounds like the backlight is out. The backlight looks like a small
    floresant tube. They can be changed. I used to do many of them.

    Probably repairable, but it may cost $250 plus.
