Having problems with your Dell UltraSharp 2000FP 20.1" Flat Panel LCD Monitor ?

7 year old Dell Inspiron 4150 has black screen. If I plug old crt monitor to serial port I get picture there fine. Computer is fine but monitor shot? Do I need a new LCD? Can I get one for $100 or less?


Answers :

This is a common problem, I don't think the LCD per say is bad. The backlight tube may be bad or the power inverter that powers it may be bad. GO to support.dell.com and search for these parts, get them both and replace them both. It is tricky as you must dissasemble your laptop lid panel.
