I'll be speaking of two different laptops in this post so to clarify:
A. Dell Inspiron 1525 = Broken laptop (screen doesn't work)
B. Dell Inspiron 1525 = Great laptop in working condition
I dropped my Dell Inspiron 1525 A laptop while it was still in the bag and when I turned it on the screen didn't work. I have another working Dell Inspiron 1525 B so I put that working screen into the broken Dell. To my dismay that screen didn't turn on either. I put the screen from A into laptop B and that screen worked fine. So my problem isn't the screen. Everything else on the laptop works fine. I have been hooking it up and using it through the TV.
I thought some dust may have gotten in the connection that the screen attaches to on the motherboard so I blew it out, then connected it. I hooked A up to the TV and both the TV and the screen from laptop A were working! I shut down the comp and unplugged it from the TV, then turned it on. Unfortunately, the screen didn't turn on. I'm not sure what to do now.
What are your suggestions?
