Having problems with your ASUS m6n Notebook ?

I have an asus z7100 laptop and just reloaded windowsxp... ever since then my screen goes dim then light then dim then light... can you give me any suggestions?? My power setting is at max level and either of the function keys for the dimming or brightness options aren't working. I never had this problem before??


Answers :

I would agree with clb199 mostly, I'd certainly try a different power supply before dropping any money on a repair. A lot of times a loose connection can cause the backlight to brighten and dim as it goes from AC to DC to AC again.. does it do this even when the AC adaptor is unplugged

Could also be the FL inverter going bad.. but usually the screen would go from lit to black (but you could see the display in bright light) if that were the case.

Try plugging in an external display and see if that display does the same thing.

Last but not least, boot your Windows XP (or any other bootable) disc. Does the screen still flicker when you are in the boot menu or does it only do it after Windows loads? If it only does it when logged into Windows then it is a software issue and we can troubleshoot further from there. (you can test this without a disc by rebooting your PC and loading the BIOS setup, usually the F2 key)

Keep us posted or PM me directly.

It sounds like you laptop video display or video hardware is beginning to fail. Sometimes a power supply that is surging can cause this, but most of the time it is an electrical circuit failing from overheat on the video card. Without seeing the unit, everything here has been speculative.
