Any fix for old laptop with dimming screen?

Acer / Travelmate 2400

Specs: Windows XP
My laptop screen seems to be getting dimmer and dimmer each time I use it. It's pretty old and way past warranty.
Is it time to get a new one? Or is this fixable?

Fixable maybe, most likely not worth your time and trouble. Unless you have a stock of spare parts to swap it tends to be a guess as to correct part. Some lamps are not too expensive and may be worth a try, maybe.

Why did it take me over a year to phone in a problem to ATT?

Try using an external monitor to determine if the issue is the screen or not. Could be just the back light or inverter. If the external is also affected then it is the GPU and not worth fixing for sure.

Guess it could be a power setting in power management. Or some brightness or contrast setting you over looked too.
