Hello Piet,
Happy New Year.

Once you connect the Adapter, Increase the Brightness to the fullest.
Then Disconnect the adapter, Increase the Brightness to the fullest again.

Then try connecting the adapter again.

Its like you need to set a brightness level for "On power" & "on Battery";

& every time they are switched across the Brightness level selected .. kicks in.

Hope this helps.

Thanks Happy Dude

I hope you have an excellent 2008.

I solved the problem. When I started looking to do what you suggested, I discovered Funct F8, and Voila!, my screen is good again.

Difficult to be so stupid.

Thanks again.
