Hello, my Thinkpad screen went dark all of a sudden. When I connect laptop to external monitor through VGA, I can see my computer, so the graphics card is OK, right? When I bring a flashlight close to the screen I can see my computer although very very dim. I replaced the screen with a new screen but still same problem. I read in the forums that the LCD inverter might have gone bad, but then in the screen specfication they say that this screen does not need an inverter. I am completely confused as to what might be the problem? Help anyone!!!

Connect AC adapter to see if it helps? Check the power settings too for anything power related to the LCD.

GLaDOSPulse - laptop battery is old and hardly holds any charge, so I am using AC adpater all the time, while the battery is in place. When I press Fn + brightness up and down, I see the brightness bar going up and down (laptop connected to external moniter) but hardly anything changes. Is it possible that the brightness is somehow stuck?
richk - is possble to diagnose which fuse blew and possibly replace it?
