Having problems with your Dell E173FP 17" LCD Monitor ?

I have similar problems. Though my LCD is a Dell E178FPv and the monitor will come on very dim for about 3-4 seconds, then go black. Green power button on. I have isolated this to this monitor. Some of my questions are, now that I have this monitor completely apart, how do I check the output for the lamps and inverter so I can purchase the right parts to install? I have a volt/ohm meter. I am very comfortable with de-/soldering, so if the inverter is bad I do not mind changing out the transisto
