Hello,

I was recently donated a Compaq Presario M2000 and was told the LCD screen is dark. I am thinking that the problem with this is that it needs a new inverter. I also thought that the LCD might need a new bulb. Is there any other problems that could be a possibility with this LCD?

As far as I know, it runs just fine, everything else works on it. Its actually still usable if I hold the screen up to a light that way I can see everything on the LCD.

if you can see by shining light on it, it means the backlight is out and needs to be replaced. That's a relatively cheap replacement and can be a DYI project if you've done things like that in the past.
