Toshiba Satellite 1405-s151 display problem

I have a Satellite 1405-s151 which has served me well from may 2002. Two days ago the display went off. I closed and reopen the lid and the display lighted again for a while, and went off again. Tried the same several times and the same. After the tenth time it did not came on and it has been the same since. I kooked it up to a desktop monitor, closed the lid, let it hibernate, open the lid again and I had the laptop display in the monitor, so I could work with an external monitor. Then I checked the display switcher to see if it will handle both the laptop display and the monitor, the monitor worked and then I found out the laptop display was working by looking it at a glance angle. So, I figure the backlit module is gone then. My question then is: is the lcd display inverter the problem? Should I replace it? Or there are further tests I should do? I know how to disassemble my laptop, and saw some inverters from $80 to $100, will they work? By the way the CD writer unit also stop working a while ago, will there be a compatible DVD writer for such an old laptop? Any help on this is appreciated, Azael.

    I have this same problem with a toshiba satellite a105-s4064.

    Could look at it with the screen opened at a certain spot. been using it like that for several months. This week it got to where it opens up gives a ghosting look, then goes out to black.
    Will the inverter fix this?

My Toshiba Satellite 1405-S151 is indicating that it is receiving power, when I push the power button it indicates that it is powering on. The screen does nothing :-( help?

if your TOSHIBA laptop is doing this then check the RAM(memory)
if the problem persist check the Processor,
Likewise If it continues use WorkStation on the VGA Chip;
thats all
