To state the obvious, make sure the brightness is turned up. This is usually a function key on the keyboard (the icon is probably shaped like a sun). If this doesn't accomplish anything, then the backlight on the LCD may be damaged, or else there could be a problem with the inverter. (I had a very similar problem myself: the screen would appear incredibly dark when I turned it on/woke it up, and then openning and shutting it a bit or jiggling sometimes helped, at least for a while - this is NOT a solution, it's merely a quick fix, and it only works so many times.) The inverter is more likely to be the cause: the backlight is a CCFL (Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp) and such last longer than the inverter. You can purchase an inverter or backlight relatively cheaply on the internet - I would recommend checking the related links I've provided, they have more information on the possible problems and fixes, as well as instructions on how to replace the inverter or backlight.
Dell has made a "laptop" with a 20 inch portable screen, if you're truly looking for a large screen.
No, you cannot be killed by looking too closely at a television screen.
The monitor is a screen used for a computer or a laptop. The one you're looking at right now to see this answer.
I believe the most common laptop size these days is a 15 inch screen. A smaller screen usually means a lighter weight which is what most people are looking for these days.
You Can not make a regular laptop touch screen you have ti get a touch screen laptop. NO YOU CANT
Most laptop screens will cost between $80 and $150 and then to have it installed in anywhere between $100 and $200 dollars. One is looking at a total of between $180 and $400 to have the laptop screen replaced.
It depends on the manufacturer and the laptop/ screen size. Basically many different factors play into this question and you are looking at $100-$200 for the brand new panel.
It will depend on what screen size the laptop has.
Try plugging in a vga plug in the laptop into a tv or a screen.
my laptop is turned on but my screen won't work.
I would suggest looking at netbooks. Many of them are coming out with larger screen.
Well it depends on if you think you would need a bigger screen or a smaller one. My laptop has a 16 inch screen and I absolutely love it!! In my opinion i would personally go with the 15 inch screen because it is bigger and easier to see on. But it is your choice on what you are looking for.
