Having problems with your Dell InspironTM 1501 Notebook ?

New inverter in Dell Inspiron 1501 now the LCD screen gets hot!

\015 Laptop display very dark. Ordered and swapped the display inverter and the LCD display lights up and looks good but the lower left corner of the LCD smells like burning plastic.The inverter was a perfect (physical) fit and looks identical to the original and one from another like laptop (Dell Inspiron 1501).Could the backlight in the LCD be the problem?Should I just get a new LCD screen?Thoughts? Experiences?\015

Answers :

I've had the same problem with a Dell Lattitude D531. I've been told that it's the screen itself (which may have led to the original inverter going bad) but that one should also check to make sure none of the screws are making contact with any wires back there.
It might be the fanning problem of ur laptop.So provide a proper base to ur laptop.
