Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

Dell Laptop Inspiron 1525, boots up but once booted the screen only stays bright for a few seconds - a minute and the it seems to fade/ become very dim, you can barely see the windows behind it. This only seems to occur when it is plugged into the A/C, This does not occur when running on the battery until the battery runs low. I have tried adjusting the power settings, brightness etc did not work. I have connected the Laptop to another monitor and it works fine with both the A/C & battery power


Answers :

Try running the Built-in Self-Test (BIST) by holding down the <FN> + D. If your screen start \015\012turning colors red, green, orange, ets. the LCD display is good.

Could be a backlight or inverter problem. The inverter is time consuming to replace due to the many screws, but is a fairly inexpensive part, around $35.

Hope this helps.\015\012
