I did a search for topic, no results : My monitor with HP Pavilion All-in-One PC has gone dark. Not black. I can navigate but can barely see. I increased the brightness, but it didn't help. Much searching revealed a reference to "a backlight problem". Couldn't find anything else. Not sure how I'd fix that, but willing to try. Would appreciate any input, suggestions.

Hi wmorri. I kept poking around, trying to find a fix, and finally did. I right clicked on the desktop > Personalize > Display > Brightness > then selected Balanced (Recommended). Instant brightness. I'm sure glad it wasn't a backlight or inverter problem. Thanks for your response. Hope this helps someone else.

Glad to hear you fixed it. If you would mark your thread solved at the top when you are all set that would be great!
