The screen on my mum's laptop's suddenly gone super dark, you can only see it if you tilt it at an angle and even then it's still really dark and practically impossible to see.

I know that's a really vague description (sorry) but does anyone have any ideas of what might be the problem? Would it be something that I could sort out for her or would I have to take it back to the shop?

I'll check back on this thread tomorrow afternoon cause I'm gonna go to bed in a bit. Any help would be appreciated

Like REALLY REALLY dark? Like if you turn off all the lights in the room you can't see it at all?

I haven't tried it in a room with all the lights off. But if I did I imagine I would only just be able to see it..

I just went down there and asked to take it out into the bathroom and it's in a cardboard box waiting to be collected and fixed.

No one tells me anything around here

If you read, I've already tried all that stuff and I couldn't get the screen to brighten.
