|hi fellow :)|
iv got this laptop from a close friend to fix up.Its SONY VAIO PCG-K315S
The problem is i cant seem to adjust the brightness controls even from the Fn keys.Iv looked over other laptops in this section with the same problem yet they are different models with total light dim out.Though mine is a little strange.The battery is so dead so probobly usage is through AC all the time.When i turn it on everything is ok fully bright,in bios.And when the OS is about to start XP,win7 or any other the screen turns dim but i can actually see with a sharp eye that there is display.What i did once was i removed it rams and changed them it worked of fully bright everywhere straight 10hours and then when i restarted it again the problem started to piss me off then i tried the same over still managed to run it restarted it the problem was there for me.I even checked the bios for shortcut key types as to it says if one type doesnt work try the other one,tried all three non was effective.I never opened it though.You guyz think it may be an issue with the FL invertor? erm why so cause it acts normal at boot up screen,dos,bios but OS start is the start of dimness.
Please guyz im looking for a permanent solution for more over 4 months now :( i'll be more then happy if any of you may help me out.OH yeh i even tried it with an original sony vaio xp dvd as mine is no longer exist.but when it starts to install gives some error which i cant even see due to dimness.There is not a single driver or anything for this laptop on sony vaios site :(
