Post Screen Issue
I am working on a friends Gateway MD2614u with amd turion x2 and radeon HD 3200 graphics. Problem is that after couple mins of use, screen brightness goes way down. Way down as you can barely see anything on the screen! It doesn't matter if i am in windows, running a live cd, or in the bios. Funny thing is that if I connect a external monitor via vga, it doesn't suffer the same issue as the laptop screen. I already replaced the thermal paste and cleaned the dust clogged heatsink.

Since the external monitor works fine, I am guessing the issue is with the lcd panel itself. Any input besides replacing the laptop?
