I can only see safe mode on the alternate monitor. The lcd screen on the laptop is black with a very faint impression of what is on the alternate monitor.

Your back light has gone out I would try to replace the lcd inverter first as thats most likely the culprit inverters run about $15 and can be replaced easily where the backlight is cheap but the labor to do it is expensive almost to the point its cheaper to buy a new lcd instead of replacing the back light

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
