Having problems with your Dell Latitude D510 Notebook ?

Backlight goes out after only a few seconds of use. I suspect the LCD/FL inverter board. Are there any other possibilities? I have a Latitude D510. It's about 4 years old. After the backlight goes out, it is still possible to see the dark image, and it is technically still possible to use this screen, though very difficult. I can hit the 'lid close' switch for a few seconds worth of backlight, but it then goes out again. Comp still works fine with external monitor. I would like the cheapes

I have changed the inverter and it still doesn't work, how do I check if th einverter I bought as a replacement works and/or is compatible?.
