Dell Vostro 1400 LCD Showing Black Screen
\015 Hello - I just wanted confirmation on something. I was playing Solitiare just now on my Dell Vostro 1400 and then the screen dipped black, came back in and then went totally black and has stayed that way. I quickly connected the laptop to my external monitor to see if it would pick up but it did not.Does this mean the LCD display itself has died? The backlight is showing and the FN function buttons allow me to adjust the screen light levels so it should not be an inverter problem. I just replaced the lcd ribbon cable about 2 months ago if memory serves so I do not think it would be that unless it was defective.So what does anyone else think...is it the LCD screen itself that has to be replaced? Let me know asap.\015
If you can't see it with an external monitor - it generally means the system board needs replacement. I hope that you still have a Dell warranty. Good luck.
