Fell heir to an Armada e500.. it has a very dull display.. pressing Fn + F10 or F9 makes no difference.. I have put XP pro in it.. any thoughts out there? Its a Rage mobility graphic setup

By display you mean screen?
A CRT screen/monitor?
New/Replacement[secondhand] is the answer local computer fairs or copy of MicroMart [ comes out Thursdays]
Yet another victim these days of the throwaway society.

That's a laptop, is it not?

Try new graphics card drivers. Everest will ID the graphics chipset for you if you don't have a manual.

Sounds to me like it could be either the inverter or the screen backlight. Personally, I would replace the inverter first as they are less expensive. Get in touch if you need more help.
