i have just been told from a recent message on this forum that my light tube in my laptop has gone if this is true can it be mended and if so how much will it cost me. i was wondering as the laptop works with an external screen would i be able to carry around a flat screen? any help would be greatly appreciated cheers...

What make of Notebook do you have? What operating system do you have? Have you been in the BIOS lately? Using the external screen have you tried to download drivers for the notebook.

Boot to BIOS and set the settings to default. F3 normally but have a look at the bottom of the screen, it should say.

It may not have a light tube.

If I remember correctly from your other thread, you said that the screen had gone blank, or black.

I think there is a connection between your laptop and display that is made through one of the hinges, it could be a fault there.

FE. was talking about a similar problem a few months back, and possible cure. J.
