Right... ive had my laptop for over 3 years now. During that time, on average it has been used 12 hours a day. So we are looking at around 13,000+ hours of usage on the LCD and it is now starting to become just a bit dimmer then id personally like.
I have two options:
1. Effectively retire the laptop and either buy a new one (funds arnt too happy with that idea) or swap it for me mums PC, which used to be my overclocking rig so I know and love it lots lol, which she bought a brand new LCD for last year and she never uses the PC so essentially its still brand new and therefore nice and bright;
2. Somehow make my laptop screen brighter. Ive done as much as I can using the ATI utility to make it look brighter, so now its down to the screen itself. I have been offered a brand new screen panel (including all screen related parts excluding GPU of course) to fit my laptop for a bargain price of £25 (they usually retail at around £100+ a piece), it has only a 30 day warranty, but it should be fine as its brand new, just not direct from Acer or an Acer approved supplier.
My question is, does anyone know if replacing the panel itself and the inverter etc which comes included, will actually lead to an original brightness? Im assuming the bulb will be intergrated into the panel although to be honest I havent yet checked it.
Anyone have any idea's? If ye dont know, please dont post "I think" or "I assume" as that doesnt really help in anyway.
