Mylaptop screen keeps dimming then going bright

\015 My laptop screen keeps dimming then going bright again on its own Medion Akoya S5612\015

Answers :

I suspect the backlight power of your monitor. Try to find out if the dimming is indepented of the angle of the monitor (e.g. just the time that the screen dimms out open or close SLOWLY the screen). If that is correct there is a problem (cut) in the internal cable that gives power for backlight at your screen. Reply by post.

This only happens if their is a problem with you power supply, either their is not enough power supply or u have installed a program that does not comply with resolution of your laptop screen.
\015\0121st - try to connect your laptop to a single power board where no electronic devices is sharing it. If the same problem occurs, try to uninstall any games you have installed in your laptop.
