You can find them on ebay, it can be a little complicated if you have never done this before. If you feel confident that you can do it then go for it, you will need a soldering iron if the lamps do not come wih the cables attached. you will need to take apart the screen and sometimes the de-attach the screen from the laptop, once you take it apart be careful and keep an eye out on what you are disconnecting and be careful that you do not loose the screws that go on the side of the screen they are very small.

1500 has dim screen. Switched screens with working 1500 and screen works as it should. Hooked up external monitor to bad 1500 and had good picture on monitor. So screen is fine. I have tried FN + ^ arrow...


Fn with ^ key? Why? The Display Toggle-Over key is the F8 key.
Fn key plus UP Arrow key is to increase the Brightness.

You hold the Fn key down, and tap once on the F8 key.

(Of course there are at least 3 display options available;
A) Laptop internal monitor ONLY.
B) Laptop internal monitor AND external display device.
C) External display device ONLY.

You may have to hold down on the Fn key again, and tap once more on the F8 key)

You switched LCD screens with a working one, and it works OK.

Reason is you also switched the screen Inverter, too. Correct?

The screen Inverter is mounted to an area at the bottom of the LCD screen, and behind the Display Bezel,

It's a PDF file. The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files.
After you click on Service Manual, it may take up to 30 seconds, before the first page comes up.

Click on Display.

Primer:
An LCD screen does Not produce light,

http://solutions.3m.com/wps/portal/3M/en_US/NA_Optical/Systems/BehindTheScenes/Optics101/

(Click on the monitor image)

It needs an additional light source.
A Backlight is the additional light source.

A Backlight can be a CCFL, (Or two of them); Or a series of LED's.
(Light Emitting Diode)

The Dell Vostro 1500 series of Notebook PC's, uses a single CCFL for a Backlight.

A CCFL is a Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp.
Similar to Fluorescent lighting used in homes, and businesses, but on a MUCH smaller scale.

Average thickness is -> 2mm. That is a little larger than 1/16th of an Inch.
Average length is almost as long, as the LCD screen is in height.

http://www.laptoprepair101.com/laptop/2007/12/09/replace-laptop-backlight-ccfl-lamp/

View the last 8 photos.

It is just like Fluorescent lighting used in homes, and businesses also, because it has MERCURY vapor inside.
HIGHLY toxic.

A screen Inverter is used to convert the power, (Electricity), from the laptop, for the LCD screen, and Backlight.

(NOTE* Does NOT apply to laptops that use LED backlighting.
There is NO screen Inverter used)

90 PERCENT OF THE TIME the fault is a bad screen Inverter.

Primer over.

Me? I would buy a screen Inverter, due to the low cost, and ease of accessing to replace, and replace it, and use the old LCD screen.

[ You did check Video Cable connections -> PHYSICALLY, (Try to plug in tighter), on the Video Cable motherboard side connection, LCD screen connection, and screen Inverter connection; correct?]

For additional questions, or to have me clarify anything I have stated above; please post in a Comment.

In my dellvostro a860 , rite side of the screen colours are spreaded,it it looks like shade,,whats the problem in that i m not getting please help me..........


It is the screen Inverter, or the LCD screen itself.

Screen Inverter: A small circuit board located behind the Display Bezel, and mounted towards the bottom of the LCD screen,

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/vosA860/en/sm/display.htm#wp1183775

The yellowish long object, at the bottom, is the screen Inverter.

Here is another look at it,

http://www.batterycenturys.com/dell-vostro-a860-inverter-p-185294.html

Dell Support > Vostro a860 Notebook PC > Service Manual,

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/vosA860/en/sm/index.htm

In the list clicking on -> Display, will get you to the first link above.

Need guidance in replacing the screen Inverter, post in a Comment.

(Just a basic guide using a Vostro 1014/1015 Notebook PC. Not yours, but good for basic guidance. This is replacing the LCD screen,

http://www.insidemylaptop.com/replace-lcd-screen-dell-vostro-1015-1014-laptop/
)

[ Primer:
An LCD screen cannot produce light by itself,

http://solutions.3m.com/wps/portal/3M/en_US/NA_Optical/Systems/BehindTheScenes/Optics101/

( Click on the small window with the monitor in it )

It needs an additional light source. A Backlight is the additional light source.
A Backlight can be a CCFL, (or more than one), or a series of LED's used as lights.

The Dell Vostro a860 Notebook PC uses one CCFL, for a Backlight, OR there are Vostro a860's that use LED lights.
(If you replace the LCD screen, make sure FIRST of what type of Backlighting it uses)

A CCFL is a Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp. Similar to Fluorescent lighting used in homes, and businesses, but on a MUCH smaller scale.

[Average thickness of a CCFL is 2mm. That is a little larger than 1/16th of an Inch.
Average length is almost as long, as the LCD screen is in height ]

A screen Inverter is used to convert the power from the laptop, for the Backlight, and LCD screen.

Most of the time the fault is the screen Inverter.

The Vostro a860 Notebook PC's, that uses LED's as a Backlight, MAY also use a screen Inverter.

Primer over.

For your problem it could be the screen Inverter, but I lean more towards the LCD screen itself, is the problem.

How to test a screen Inverter? Requires a very sensitive multimeter.
Read; Expensive,

http://www.fonerbooks.com/test.htm

For a layman who does not have access to a sensitive multimeter, the method is to just replace the screen Inverter, and see if it is the problem.
'Parts changing', I know, but if you do not have the proper equipment to test with?

Screen Inverter replaced, and problem still persists, replace the LCD screen,

How can I fixed a defective motherboard of my dell vostro 1000 laptop? where can I order the exact type of my vostro 1000 motherboard laptop?


Only Dell will be able to supply a replacement Dell motherboard.
Telephone Dell, and ask for Technical Support, to find the part-number and the (HIGH!) cost.

It seems that your battery is totally empty, Take the battery off and plug your laptop straight to the adapter and try, make sure the adapter is working fine, if nothing happen check the board.
