Default Need Help!

Hi guys!
Didn't quite know where to post this. So here goes.

I currently repairing my gf laptop (Dell Inspiron 1520). The problem is - after a while the display dims when it's charging. Something like the lights were turned off but I can still see what's on the display if look at it in light. This only happens when it's charging. When i run only on battery it's ok and never dims.

Suggestions?

Windows 7 just installed (from a clean format).
When it had Vista it had the same problem.

Have you checked the Power Settings to make sure it's not dimming the screen?
