Having problems with your Dell PC Laptops ?

Hi everybody my name is Andrew and I have quite an unusual problem with my dell laptop. Before several days my girlfrend has unplugged the power supply while cleaning around but unfortunately I have had removed the battery. Now the screen of my laptop cannot start working. It becomes green, red, black. Windows is starting normally and I use now a plug and play monitor to do my job. Please if there is someone who can help me?

Hi Andrew,

\015\012Since you can view the display correctly on an external monitor, it completely rules out any problem with your video/graphics hardware. So, it's an LCD problem. The "Screen Inverter" can often be the culprit, and after that (considering your symptoms are color indicated and there is no flickering of the light from the LCD panel mentioned) it can really only be the LCD panel itself. Replacing a Screen Inverter isn't something you'd want to do unless you're willing to disassemble the display Assembly. Since you have to have the entire LCD panel out of its "frame" (Cover + Bezel) to replace a Screen Inverter, you might be best off to just replace the LCD and when you arder a new one, make sure it comes with a new inverter already attached (at the bottom of the panel). You'll be able to find the part on eBay.

\015\012For a real "laptop guy", if you'd want to have someone handle it for you, this replacement takes no more than 30 minutes, so don't let anybody try to take advantage of you on the price for the replacement.
