Question about Dell XPS M1330 Notebook
LED screen, computer bought 1.5 years ago so not covered anymore by warranty. The backlight suddenly stopped working, screen is black, computer works but i can hardly see anything.
Have tried to reboot, to access Bios, to start in safe mode and with low resolution, doesn't change anything.
Would really appreciate your help. THanks
If you are having issues with a backlight I would check the lcd inverter first. It is usually 20 dollars on ebay. I would avoid contacting dell as they are no help to people that are out of warranty.

If backlight is out. you need to replace the lcd screen there is no way around it. i have seen many of these models cause this issue because of a bad motherboard. you would have to contact dell to see if you are eligible for a mobo replacement to prevent future issues with this model. usually to replace a lcd it runs at our store 160+ tax.

This model laptop uses a CCFL lamp for the backlight, it does not use LEDs for backlighting.
The CCFL lamp is attached to an inverter which supplies high voltage to this lamp.
For details on how to install and or replace CCFL lamps go to
www.lcdparts.net for information and parts.
I assume you are not replacing the whole LCD screen.
