View Full Version : Back-Light on my 2 1/2 y/o G73JW-A1 stopped working...

The back lights worked perfect for 2 1/2 years and just stopped working. Assuming it just broke but I guess it could be the "back-light cable" ? I doubt it though since my laptop never gets jarred or banged around.

How does one check this cable? I am a nub with fixing laptop hardware... I see 5 little notch/cut-outs the look like they are there so I can can take the keyboard out. Do I turn the laptop off and get a flat head screw driver and pop this thing out and check the cable?

Sorry for being a noob... I just dont want to break my laptop. =D
