Solved Acer laptop monitor problem

Specs: Windows Vista
I turn on laptop it goes through start up normally till the vista log in then the monitor goes blank. not off because I can still faintly see what should there but looks like it is a blank screen. i have figured out to get it to be bright again is Fn F6 but within seconds it goes super dim again and i have to repeat the process till it keeps bright usually about 5 to 10 mins of hitting Fn F6 every few seconds. i have checked drivers. i have uninstalled and then reinstalled drivers. checked malware, virus etc. i have also tried with and without battery in with restarts.
Can someone please help.
It is a Acer Aspire 8920

✔ Best Answer
Sounds like a faulty backlight behind the screen, or a faulty inverter-board.
Whichever, the fix involves removing the screen to change whichever of the above components is faulty. Best entrusted to someone who's done it before, otherwise you may break something else.
