Hi everyone !
Sometimes the LCD of an old Dell Insprion E1505 I have goes dark.
If I turn off the room light, I can see the Windows Desktop, and my mouse moving, and the Start menu pop up, if I click on it, but the screen is really dark.
But sometimes, the screen works great!
After all the research I did... Everyone says that the only way to fix it, is to replace the whole LCD screen.
The LCD screen has a backlight, and an inverter on the bottom (from what I found)
And it could be either one of them that is not working properly
And replacing the inverter, can solve the problem for only few months before the backlight stops also...
I understand that.
But it's an old laptop, and I LOVE replacing parts on computers... So even if it breaks, it's alright. So, I don't want to go with the easy way (and most effective) and replace the LCD.
From your experience or what you know... What should I replace?
Backlight? or inverter? or something else?
Which one gives me better chances to solve my problem?
The inverter is easier to replace, than the backlight, because some people said that to replace the backlight, I need a CLEAN room (which I don't have)
Thank you for your help!
