I have a Dell laptop, it wouldnt boot up, i tried everything, changed and re seated ram, removed battery, etc, then i plugged it into an external monitor and it is showing up fine, but on laptop screen its totally black not even dim, would this indicate its the lcd or the inverter and how can i tell for sure?

This appears to be a hardware issue. Can you please create a thread in the internal hardware section of the forums?

See also my reply to your topic here -




For future reference it is not a good idea to have two topics on an essentially identical problem open at the same time - it just causes confusion for you and anybody replying.


On the assumption that you are going to follow the Chicken's advice and start a topic in the 'Internal hardware' section, I am closing both these topics.
