Yesterday the backlight on my Dell XPS 1530 effectively died. The picture is still there (incredibly dim -- can't really make anything out) and the computer works just fine when hooked up to a monitor. I would guess that the CCFL tube died and would just buy a new one, but is there any way to sure it is the tube and not the inverter that is busted?
