However, if it's really a 5150 (since the 1550 is a server) use this link:
This will give you the exploded view.
Good luck. If you have already handled a thinkpad, I foresee no problem with this one. They're all pretty much the same.
Please rate this accordingly and thanks for using

Dell d620 sCREEN GOES BLACK AFTER WINDOWS SCREEN COMES UP. None of the normal Fn keystrokes help. i never make it to the login screen. Help?

If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LED flashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp. Please click on this link and follow my instructions to identify the fault and possible fix :-

How to restore Dell 1550 Inspiron to actual factory setting

Unless your using a email program such as thunder bird or if it is a Yahoo or Gmail account I would not even worry about having to delete anything. Just send it back they cannot access private information without the password anyway. So send it back get it fixed and move forward with a new machine when it comes back? John

Blank screen when turned on.sound is fine though.when i use external monitor it works on the external monitor.

Hi. I have 2 units of T23, 1 unit T22 and T30. All of them has the same problem as yours. 3 units has bad inverter and the other 1 has bad CFL. Inverters can be replaced but if you have bad CFL, it is better to replace LCD screen. If your problem is CFL, you will be able to see a very faint image on your LCD screen. If the LCD is completely black and you can't see anything, then it is an inverter problem.

Inverter is located below the LCD screen. You need to remove the LCD face plate to access the inverter. Please click here for the step-by-step instruction how to access the inverter or replace the LCD screen. Inverter and LCD are available at ebay.

Note: T23 has thin plastic parts that can be easily broken when disassembling.

Good Luck. Let me know further.

Dell Inspiron 6000 Laptop Screen has Faint Image

It's a faulty backlight (screen).
Replace screen (same dell part number) with inverter, otherwise screen can be dark.
Here is how Dell part number looks (green):

Dropped my laptop- screen cracked

I would recommend locating a local computer repair shop that doesn't have a well known name around your town.

They tend to keep many extra parts of laptops lying around and it's as simple as finding a match and replacing the LCD panel.

The smaller shops may have better deals than the larger, but it might be smart to contact Dell as well on the same matter.

Have a dell latitude D610 and the screen is black, i can bearly see the icons but it will not light up.

The inverter (backlight) has gone or has come loose from the plug.
If the laptop is still under warrant i suggest you take advantage of that and send it in to be looked at.
If its out of warranty you have to options, take it to reputable PC repair store or disassemble the bezel (plastic screen surround) yourself.
The inverter is an elongated circuit board located right under the screen itself, check the connections to that, if all looks well then then the inverter itself has gone and needs replacing.
Don't worry too much about the cost as they are fairly inexpensive to replace.
If you need anymore advice please feel free to post back.

Good luck

Where is the LCD backlight inverter on an Inspiron

The inverter is in the LCD, below the actual screen. It controls the brightness and the contrast on the laptop. Here is a link where I purchase them:
