    The "bulb" is called a backlight. All LCD screens have one... Even LCD TV's do

    I had the very same problem on my comp...

    So i tried unplugging the sreen from my graphics card and taking the graphics card out.

    Then i plugged it in to the video on the MotherBoard, if this works then ure video card may be toast...as was mine.

    The last post in this was 6 months ago... Do you think the issue is dead?

    Quite possibly, but you bumped it by just asking :p

    Also it's still available on google, and since there was no resolution I felt it wouldn't hurt to throw some feedback down for others.

    You bumped it first... Would posting your findings in a new thread be more valuable?
