The power LED under the power button on my laptop keeps going dim every time I lift my the screen of my laptop, (I suspect a short,) but when I put it back down the LED brightens again, is there a way to fix this?

If the system power itself is unaffected, meaning the laptop works normally otherwise, then the problem is most likely an intermittent connection for the LED at the switch. If the switch has a plug-in connection then maybe one of the terminals is loose, in which case you could unplug it, remove the terminal from the connector and bend the tangs to tighten it, then reassemble and test. If however the switch is soldered, then you'll probably have to resolder it.

It is also possible that the LED itself is bad, in which case you could try replacing the entire switch/LED assembly or just the LED itself. Let me know if or how you solve the problem. Scott.

PS: This sounds more like a cosmetic issue than a serious problem, so you might be better off leaving it alone...

If it ain't broke, don't fix it. That's my theory and I'm sticking to it.
