I turned on my Compaq R3240 Laptop and the screen is crazy-dark. I have to press my face up against the screen and squint to see what the icons are. Is there a fix for this???

Thanks!

Could be a failed backlight or backlight power inverter.

That PC should still be under Warranty? It could be an expensive fix.

Thanks Kiwi, Yes I spoke with Compaq Tech Support about 6 months ago for a different problem and the tech tried to get me to buy a warranty for the screen and I declined. Is their a way to use the screen to a usuable degree without spending the bucks to get it fixed?

Thanks again

If the backlight has gone, then no.

Like saying "my light bulb in the room has blown, how can I get some light out of it?"
