Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

\015\012If you need/want the unit to remain portable, you'll have to get the light replaced. If you feel comfortable working on electronics and if the tube is available to the consumer. Then you might be able to do the task yourself. In order to advise you better on part availability and replacement instructions I would need to have the brand and model # of the laptop.

\015\012Now if you just need to be able to see the screen and portability is NOT an issue, then there is a vga connector on the back of your laptop. Plug an external monitor into that connector and turn on the laptop. If the image doesn't come up on the monitor immediately then push <FN> and <F5> at the same time until the display comes up.
