Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1545 Notebook ?

The left side of my screen keeps flickering, eventually making the screen dark and totally black. do i have to change the screen or change the inverter? please help dennis


Answers :

Dark screen means your ccfl bulb not working so replace inverter
The way you have disribed the problem you are having points to your lcd back light has gone, the only real way of testing this is to take the inverter out and test it on another dell laptop, you could take it to your local store and have them test it for you, even though the flickering does happen when the inverter fails, it normally happens to the whole screen not just the one side, and the screen still lights but not as bright.
My first thought is its definatly the back light but its worth testing the inverter to be sure. i hope this helps and post back your finding.
