Having problems with your HP Compaq Presario V5000T Notebook ?

Backlight Life I have a compaq Presario v5000 model and I have it on a lot. I have it open often for hours at a time. I already checked the LCD life, they last for 60,000 hours, but will having the laptop open all the time burn out the backlight? I really don't want a broken laptop, I'm not exactly tech-savvy.


Answers :

If the laptop is on all the time and the display is never on standby, then the backlight CCFL lamp life will be reduced.
\015\012If the CCFL lamp is worn out, this can be replaced without replacing the whole LCD screen.
Yes by leaving the laptop on all the time you could burn out the laptops back light. Set your power settings to turn monitor off after so many minutes of non use to save this. Further more I would recommend a chill pad under the laptop to help keep the CPU from getting to hot.
