Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
LCD hinges are to hold the display open while you do your work. It is NOT so you can lift the laptop. If you lift the unit by the LCD, the weight of the lower unit can flop open and damage the hinges and/or crack the LCD. This could also damage the LCD cable which will cost much money. So don't do it. If you're having trouble with a dark Display, look really close at the LCD. If you can see an image, the backlight or the LCD inverter has gone bad. You may be able to connect to an external monitor to complete what you're doing. If there is no image, the LCD may be bad or the video card could be bad. Some, in fact most, modern laptops only have one board. The motherboard. This means that the mother board must be replaced. Sorry. I didn't design it. The good news is that replacing the mother board is usually cheaper than buying a new laptop.
