It may also control the hardware outside of Windows. Maybe try a LiveCD of Linux and see if it shows normal there (which I suspect it wouldnt)

Attempted to boot from linux dvd in Recovery section in settings - gave me the choice to boot from DVD....

Went through the motions, but never completed - then booted to windows

Tried to repeat the procedure and could not find "boot from DVD" anywhere after that .... ????

Plugged in external monitor to VGA out - picture OK on monitor when power removed from laptop....

Does that prove anything ?!

OK

Tried another slightly faulty screen in it and Asus logo lights up on battery, so it is the screen, not windows

Thanks for info

Good to know that you were able to troubleshoot the screen. Glad you were able to find the answer!

Nice piece of troubleshooting swapping screens. (y)

I would put the original screen back to make sure it wasn't just a poor connection.

If it's still not lighting up with battery power you may be able to find a cheap used screen on Ebay.
