Answers :

Yes I can. Sounds like a laptop or flat panel display. Both have a small florescent bulb in them that backlights the screen.

If you can order the bulb the bulb is easy to replace.

Laptop/Monitor: Split the plastic case around the lid/monitor (if there are screws you will need to remove them - check under the rubber pads on the inside of the lid as they often hide screws underneath.)
Run a small knife or flat screw driver around the seam and the two halves will split apart. Once you have done so you can easily access the bulb - replace it - reassembly is reverse of dis assembly.
