well the title kinda says it all.
ive got this flat screen monitor hanging around my house, and i want to use it, because this one is sooooo long, its right in my face when im using the PC.
well as i said, i turn the PC on and the backlight flashes on then off, and i get a very faint display, i can see whats going on on the screen, but not very well, and only with another light source shining on it.
also if i turn it off and on when the PC is running the backlight flashes up and i can see for about half a second what is being shown.
when my brothers laptop messed up similarly (but without the flashing backlight), there was something to do with a part you could change to do with the backlight, but it just turned out the little button that presses in when the laptop is closed, was jamed down :cheesy:
anyway, can someone please help me with this, im reasonably competant with PCs and electronic, so if its a part that needs changing i can give it a go, because its no loss if i mess it all up.
and if i cant do it, how much do you think it will be to get fixed?
