hp ze4900 blank screen

The screen on my hp ze4900 lap top is very dark. I can still see it a little but not very much. Is my bulb or is my inverter going out or is it something else. I did not hear a hum and I am not sure about a red glow. I can still see the screen a little but it is very difficult to see. If I shine a light on it I can see it or if it is very dark I can kind of see it. I know there is a "how to take the bulb out and fix it in instructables" but I just wondering if it might be another thing? Also, how do you take the screen apart on this model? Thanks, Carmitsu

Clicking a forum topic takes me to a blank page.

I went to look at one of my topics I posted.  It took me to a blank page with nothing on it.  I tried with a different topic.  Same thing.  I tried with all the topics in the first page of the "life" category.  Same thing.  I tried clicking a reply I got on the topics.  Same thing. I'm using the newest version of Firefox, and Windows Vista if this helps anything. *Edit* the problem seems to have disappeared for now, but it's still odd that it happened in the first place.

Less then 2 yr old flat screen - has died....I believe...

My 17" Gateway flatscreen went blank this morning while I was at meeting. My wife claims she didn't do anything.....that it was blank when she saw it. It was not in sleep mode, nor was a screen saver on. I noticed the "power button" which is normally green (power up, with computer signal) or amber (powered up w/out signal), would not come on. I attempted to see if any of the adjustments on the side might have been bumped, no effect. I tested to make sure there was power from the surge protector (switched power outlets after a shut down) to no avail. After my 4th reboot, I subbed in my old monster sized 17" CRT tube monitor, and it works fine. Resolution is different, but it works.....but that pushed the monitor about 2 feet closer to my nose then I would like (it is about 10 inches from my face. )Did I miss anything as far as testing the monitor before replacing it? I personally think the PSU in the monitor went on the fritz, but I am open to suggestions. EDIT: The old CRT is now back ni it's storage area, and the newest LCD screen is up and running.

Modifications to a pistol to allow blank firing? Answered

 What  modifications are needed to allow a semi-automatic pistol to fire blank ammo? The reason I ask is that on various film prop sites I have come across a photo of a gun, ( for an example see accompanying image), and the phrase,  "Note how the gun has clearly been blank converted." I can guess at the reasons but does anyone know? (Don't even bother trying to google this.. .you will get thousands of pages on how to convert a blank gun to fire real ammo.) This is from the film, Heat. Thank you.

I'm on Windows 10, using Chrome Version 46.0.2490.80 m The project with this issue is here: I think the reason for the bug is because I want to put a spacing between bullets without creating bullet on the blank line I pressed SHIFT-RETURN instead of RETURN.  Somehow it SOMETIMES mess up because as you can see other lines above and below it works fine.

My computer isn't working, anyone know why? Answered

 I would like to know this for informational purposes next time I open up my PC just to fix a few hardware problems. One of the RAM chips on my PC didn't want to work, so I decided to open it up and clean the contacts (which were covered in enough dirt to stop all connections). So I did so, and when I put it all back in and booted it up, all I see on my LCD screen was nothing, absolutely nothing. I tried reseating the video card. I tried reseating the RAM chips. The only thing I didn't try was to clear the CMOS memory, but I was afraid it would make things worse since I have a tendency to touch other components. For all I know it can't be the CMOS memory, but I can't be sure. I do know I accidentally touched the video card out of nowhere (no ESD). That video card I touched has a reputation of taking more than 10 attempts at it to make it work, so I might have moved the contacts out of place, so I reseated it. It still doesn't want to work. I do know that my dad knows the problem, so don't tell me to bring it to a computer repair shop which will raise the price needlessly anyway. According to the LED's at the front, the CPU is going at it. I just want to know what to do and what not to do (aside from the usual ground yourself, don't touch other components drill) so that I don't mess it all up all over again. I'll go have another shot at restarting this... Might be the cable from the monitor to the PC...

How would you imprint a graphic or text onto a blank aluminium or stainless steel blank switch plate cover?

I'm making a pedal board/road case with a buddy of mine. It's in its early stages, but it will consist of a pedal board and lift-away lid, covered in tolex with metal corners and such. I'd like to put some sort of small name plate or logo on the front end of it. I've found a blank switch plate cover, normally used to cover up spots where light switches or power outlets used to be, and by some means apply a logo or text to it. It's about the size that I'd like the logo/text to be anyways. I guess I could go and print a sticker and call it done, but I'm looking for a way to make this more permanent. It will be on the outside of what is essentially a small road case, so it will be up against the elements. So I guess if there was a good way to print off a design and put a layer of something over it so it will stay in place, possibly be shiny ( :D ), and be protected from the elements, I'd be all set! For the sake of aesthetics I've decided whatever plate I get, it will be some kind of metal. I've found brushed aluminium, stainless steel, and chrome.
