I have a PCG-K415S laptop with a siplay problem. The display is extremely dim and unreadable although if you tilt it in the light you can see that what should be on the screen is actually there and of good quality its just to dark to actually read. I think it is just a backlight issue although a friend said it could also be the inverter.
I thought if the inverter was gone then nothing would appear whatsoever on the screen. Am I right in assuming that it is just a backlight problem or could it also be the inverter ??

As stated in your post "two year old may have dropped it"
If this is true than the backlight has probably been damaged. The small flourescent tubes that generate light through the LCD display.

Ebay or somewhere similar is your best bet for getting a 'used' and therefore much cheaper replacement. Just type in the make/model of your machine..
Most Keyboards are pretty easy to replace and if your not sure how to do it, run a search on the web or post on here with your specific model etc. If its put together anything like my Sony all you have to do is remove a bit of trim above the keyboard (carefully) and there are 4/6 screws holding the keyboard in place. Remove these and the keyboard just slides out. Then it's just a matter of disconnecting the ribbon and reversing the order to put it all back together.
