    Oke here is a video of the problem i have with my m17x.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5uPbKxhAK9U

    Sorry for the poor quality but i got nothing better to record it.

    So like you can see the screen lights up when i move it down and turn to black when i move it up again what is the problem? how does this come?

    Is there a way i can fix it by my self?

    I don't consider that as a real problem. I think it is just an autoregulation function of the screen. As the iphone screen, when we don't have enough light, the screen lights up. And when the screen receive too much light, the screen lights down. It is just normal. Don't worry about that.

    When you try to move the screen down, it doesn't has enough light. So the autoregulation function of the screen activates and increases the light. When you move it up, the screen receives a lot of light. So the screen lights down to save battery.

    After all, that is my supposition. I am not sure.

    I don't know because I don't received my m17x yet. So you should wait for somebody else to help you. Sorry. But I don't think it is a "problem". It is just a normal function of the laptop screen.

    Thats weird, it is almost like your lid switch is working backwards.

    Try changing your power settings for your screen to "never dim the display" and see if that helps.

    1.click the battery logo on your taskbar and select "Adjust screen brightness." It will pop up your power settings.

    2. On any of the power settings you use choose "change plan settings" on the right of the window.

    3. The first option is to change when the screen dims. Make both of them never and then save the changes. Do this for each power plan that you use.

    NOTE: I did this using windows 7 and can not remember if it is the same with vista or not.

    It is pretty much the same on Vista, but you might have to go through control panel>power option
