Acer Aspire 5330 Backlight


I have installed Fedora 16 on an Acer Aspire 5330. However the backlight for the screen does not seem to work. If I look at a certain angle I can see the desktop. I can also connect an external monitor via the VGA out and am able to see everything OK. Is there anything I can do to enable the backlight?

Re: Acer Aspire 5330 Backlight

You mean the screen goes dark when you boot the system?

Have you tried the enable backlight button on your keyboard?

But it was working during installation?

Which kernel are you using? Did you install the latest updates yet?

Can you check if it's working with other live cds like Fedora 15 or 17 beta?

Maybe you should try the Laptop section?
