I own a Compaq laptop which I kept on for downloading for about 4 hours , it is fine , I shut it down , laptop is fine. 8 hrs later , I boot it up to and I only see the Windows Icon very daply.The laptop works fine and boots up , but there is almost no display.

Why does this happen and how can I fix it ? I would prefer not to go to the Customer Care Office.

Thanks ,

Sgt Bruce

P.S This is my first post and I hope you can help me !!!

Welcome to G2G.

I am not that adept in laptops, so you may have to wait for someone more versed.

Something we can try to rule out a couple things. If you have access to another monitor, then you can plug it in to the laptop. If you can now see the display, then I would suspect possibly the inverter for the backlit.

Your backlight has probably gone bad. This is an easy fix, just not cheap when done by a repair shop.
