    20 pounds = $31.60 US? Not bad... What is the full model number of this Presario? CQ61-?

    Hello, I am having the same problem you are having with the compaq cq61. I am VERY frustrated :oops:! I just bought a new LCD for $113.00 and I replaced the screen and I still have the same problem! The screen starts just fine and then dims where I can barely see the desktop. Please let me know if you were able to solve this problem. Thanks!

    I found the problem was the connection on the motherboard when the cable conects to the mb was the problem
