Hello PK-her0,

even a replacement screen is dim
The replacement screen, was it an actual replacement notebook screen or did you hook the notebook up to an external screen using a display port on the notebook.

Can you post the model name or number of the Asus notebook for us.

Hello PK-her0,

The external display being ok suggests that your graphics solution is fine and the problem lays elsewhere.

Sorry but got to ask, have you tried increasing the screen brightness using the ASUS hotkeys, Fn + F6 is a common combination for this on ASUS notebooks.

If the hotkeys approach has been tried but not worked, two other possible causes, the port on the MB that the video cable/ribbon connects to is bad (this includes if the cable also connects to an inverter) and if the same video cable has been reused that equally could be the cause.

Will wait on the ASUS model name/number for now.
