Question about Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook
The LCD backlight is most likely faulty. If you look at the LCD screen to one side you could see a slight video image, provided the video card is working. To check if the video card is working connect the laptop's video output connector to an external monitor and then boot up your laptop. If you get an image on the monitor, then the problem is with the laptop's LCD display.
As I stated it could be the backlight or a faulty invertot that powers the backlight or it could be the cable/s that connects the LCD to the motherboard.
Try reseating these cables (requires dismantling the laptop).
If this doesn't work then you have a faulty LCD and needs to be replaced. Alternately if cost is too expensive, just use the laptop with an external monitor.
