Do anyone of you have got the clue. I have Toshiba laptop and it shows dim/almost blank screen when swithced on. I use 'Fn' key with F5 kay to change to external/internal monitor. And after toggling/repeating for some times the brightness of the screen comes back. Mostly I get this problem in the morning time and never get the problem whole day of work and some time there is no problem at all. Can anyone suggest the solution for this problem....

Thanks,

Gaurav

Ok i have a idea your laptop has a like floresent lamp to add light to your lcd screen and it allso has like a ballast sounds like your ballast needs to be replaced NOW dont do what I allmost did and replace the screen to have the ballast replaced costs 75 bucks to have the screen replaced 1200 bucks. You tell me what you should have to replace LOL ... Here is the url to one repair place but search around under laptop backlight.

Do you leave you laptop in the trunk of your car when you commute to work? If you do the light coulld be freezing up and needs time to return to room temp. before you can use it.
