One last thing, And it is kinda off topic...and before i type this, thanks so much for your help in leading me in the right direction!!!
I noticed that my computer:
Which, if my comparisons are correct, can be swapped out with this:
(for a few hundred bucks of course...)
I think this is the fastest compatable processor there is for this laptop.
Has anyone else that may be reading this ever done this before? If i do, it will be my second time. just wondering.

Well, I just recieved and replaced the screen. Sma exact issue. I tried one touch button thingie and nothing. So, now I have a backup screen that may be good. What part can I try and order now?
Can I mail it in to the states? I will even pay to have it fixed.
Seeing how you all do not mail to APO's, what are my options? would replacing the LCD screen cable fix it or is it just trash?
I am so sick to my stomach I just want to stomp it and not ever buy another laptop of this brand.
I am really frustrated. help?

Sorry to hear the bad news!
A cable may or may not help, impossible to say without
trying the swap.
I have done a bit of research on the web, and the only reason
I have found so far for dim laptop led display is a fuse on the motherboard.
Motherboard Expensive through Lenovo, and may be difficult to find used.
(There is no inverter, as leds use +5 or +12 volts dc.)
This is only preliminary research, and there is not too
much info out there, as led panels are fairly new in laptops.
You may have voided your warranty with the screen swap,
as you know. But don't stomp it...Yet. It is always worth something

I have also this problem. I already change the LED monitor 2 times with my spare but the problem is the same. I checked the cable and didn't see problem. I suspect the problem is in the motherboard. What part in the motherboard is damage?
