    I turned my monitor off for a few days while I was away from my home. I returned to find out that when I pressed the power button... I got nothing.. no light saying it was on.. no screen flicker.. nothing.. changed the power cord several times to make sure that was not the issue.. I use a dual monitor system so I just switched it to a single monitor with the monitor that works.. Any idea on what the inverter board would cost and where to get one?

I used to repair LCD monitor from Dell. It works for me. You might be using these following steps to examine what is the problem of your LCD monitor. After you turned PC on and monitor stopped working or went black, you have to check that if you can see the image on the screen or not by shining a flashlight into the screen, not directly but find the best angle to the screen and take a look very closely. If you can see the icons or any image (Start menu), there will be a minor problem. This is because of CCFL lamps inside screen. Some of them were broken and it is very easy to replace. You don't need to do anything with the inverter board in this case. If you cannot see anything on the screen, there'll be some problems with inverter board. Hope this help!! If anything I can help you with, feel free to let me know.
Thank you,

Acer 5515 backlight not working also bootmanager missing


You need to fix the boot manager problem first by connecting an external monitor to the laptop so you can see and do a system repair.

As for the backlight problem :-
You could have a faulty CCFL lamp or inverter, To determine if you have a LCD screen, inverter or video card problem, read this and follow these instructions.
Defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom: Screen flashs on red/pink and off. Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal. Picture flickering with dim display or appear black. Picture flickering on and off. All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp.
Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power the monitor up first then the laptop, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight. Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

SCREEN GOES BLACK AFTER A FEW SECONDS AFTER TURNING MONITOR ON.


More often then not, this is attributed to a failing Backlight Inverter. A Backlight Inverter, is a power board mounted below the screen that actually send power to the Lamp inside the LCD itself. Check to see, when it goes out if there isn't still some images faint in the screen. If this is the case take it to a local repair shop and have them order one and replace it. repair cost for this shuold be around 65-100 dollars.

If this helps, please rate my solution. Have a great day.
