So I have an XPX M170 that’s running windows xp, and whenever I boot it, it boots normally, but then the display gets really dark, I thought the display turned off 100% but when I put a flashlight up to it, I seem to see a dim computer screen. When I made a new account and deleted the old one, I saw the display for like 10 seconds then it went back to the dim computer screen

Aside from attempting any dimness adjustments available on the machine which I'm sure you've already tried;

Mate, that laptop is over 10 years old. Could be entirely possible that the illumination portion of the monitor panel is going out.
If you firmly tap on it in different places does the dimness return or flicker? I'd be trying that to test a connection issue.

Whenever I firmly tap it, nothing happened, it stays dark.
