Dell laptop screen not bright

by punjabihawk / March 29, 2008 2:03 AM PDT

I bought my dell inspiron 630 M laptop in Sept. 2005 since then the hard drive crashed and was replaced by the company , it becomes very slow now and the screen is not bright enough to see the matter on it.
I spoke to dell service center in INDIA and they insist me to get my screen changed whereas they never bothered to investigate the problem.I myself investigated and found the high voltage going to screen is not present thus screen is not bright , but LCD sreen is working( can see fade information on it).
Any information on this will be appreciated.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
