Hi to all,i have an emachine e528 laptop with a crack in the monitor. Everything else works fine so i just need to know how to shut off the backlight so i can hookup external monitor to keep using it.It was the 199.00 laptop from walmart last black friday.i tried google and emachine website and could not find an answer.I know usally it is a combo of a couple keys pressed at the same time.Any help would be great. Thanks Bob

You dont have to shut off the light. When you hook up the other monitor the laptop should stay dark i would think. And as far as i know you cant shut the light off totally anyway.You might be able to dim the main monitor but it might dim the other one also.
