ok so my monitor has been dead for wayyyy over a year now, and the thing is, i didn't know what was wrong with it til recently. So apparently the backlight is not working. I want to know if it's the inverter that's not working, or a bulb or some cables. However, since i don't know anything about computers, i don't know how to check for them. Another thing I plug in an external monitor and it works fine.

SO can anyone teach me how to check for those things? I live in Davis, California so if anyone of you super computer savvy people live close by, you know hint hint. Anyways I also live in San Francisco, it's just that i dont have a driver's license nor car. so travel is hard for me, but in Davis i can bike.

Depending on how often you open/close it the first thing to check is crimped/ broken wires. Check Dell's support site. they have very good tear down guides.
