Well, I'm not sure if my LCD is gone or that some type of other LED has went out on the LCD. When I look at the screen, I can see the desktop,menu bar, and dock just fine, proplem is, it's very dim, I mean very very dim. I was able to naviagate my way to the display options, and brightness was all the way up. I tried moving the brightness up and down, but couldnt see a difference. I'm wondering if there is a seperate LED that the brightness control uses. Any info wil help, and I'll start doing google searches too.
