When I did that the moniter had an error message: The moniter is in save energy mode, activate from PC. What do I do?

Accer asspire 5535 screen wont lite up but works with external moniter

so you had a new inverter put in, are you talking about the actual backlight? can you see anything on the screen at all? point a flashlight at the screen when it's turn on and try and look from different angles to see if you can see anything on the screen. you can also take the screen off and check the connection to the actual LCD.

Compaq presario cq61 screen went dark but can still see window faintly through the dark sreen.

Look at the LCD screen very closely and check if you can see a faint image on the screen. It's possible that the LCD lid close switch stuck in the "closed" position and the back-light stays off even when you open the LCD screen or turn on the laptop. The switch turns off the back-light when you close the LCD display to save the laptop battery power.

If no luck, try to remove battery and drain the power, then replace battery and turn on.

If that didn't fix it then there are 3 things that could have gone wrong:

1. Video cable connection from inverter to LCD got loose. To check this, follow instructions from step 3 on how to open the LCD and check if cable is fitted properly.

2. The video inverter is faulty
The screen inverter failure is very similar to the back-light lamp failure. In both cases the screen gets very dark and the image on the screen becomes very faint, barely visible under a bright light. If it's still under warranty, take it for a replacement. You can replace this otherwise - you can find the inverter under the screen, follow the procedure described at point 3 to open up the screen.

3. The LCD monitor is faulty
If it works on an external monitor most likely the LCD is faulty and needs replacement. If it's still under warranty, take it for a replacement. If not, you can do it yourself, it's pretty easy. Remove the rubber covers on the side of the screen, unscrew the screws take the plastic cover off, disconnect the video inverter and put in the new LCD after you connect the video inverter to it.

Black screen / works on external moniter

When you turn your laptop to different angles can you see extremely faint graphics? Try shining a bright light at it an turn it at a 60 degree angle to your eyes. If you can see any graphics then your inverter board is bad. It it located just below the screen in front of the keyboard. The inverter itself is very inexpensive (about $12). Having someone install it shouldn't take more than 45 minutes. Let me know if this helps you.

Dell inspiron 5150 dark screen, faint image in background

If it showed a pinkish tint on the screen before it went out it could be the backlite. If you can see a faint screen when you turn the room lights out it chuld be the inverter. Inverters are cheap ... a used one for around $8 on ebay. Try that first. Make sure that you buy the EXACT model that is presently in your laptop.
