inverter board and back light

by privatehell In reply to Dell Inspiron 600M

I have had the same issue, by taking a flash light and putting it up to the screen you can see the display. This is an indication that the inverter board is loading the information to the monitor and failing after a time. The inverter board resides below the monitor in the lid of the laptop between the connection to the video card and the monitor. I would replace the inverter board and back light, which should approximately be about $40-$50 American. Good luck.

I have the same problem. I read the proposed solution from the post done by the person in Savannah, GA. Did you try it and did it work?
