I have a screen problem, I think. Well I know that I have a screen issue but I don't know what caused it. At first I was thinking that it was the inverter because the screen suddenly went out when I was working on it. I can still see the faint log in screens etc. and it works if you hook it up to an external monitor. In focusing on the screen I forgot to notice that the computer no longer recognizes when it is closed and continues to stay on. Prior to the screen going going dim, if you closed the lid it would go into sleep mode. Is it possible that I lost a connection inside and thinks that it is closed all the time so it does it supply power or light up?. I sent it in for repair and Hp sent it back saying that they tightened screws on the motherboard I believe. It worked for less than a week before the same problem started. So the things that I think might be wrong are the inverter could be out, maybe the lcd bulb, or the lid connections. Any ideas in resolving these issues?
