Likely the backlight but those are quite hard to replace. I would try the inverter board 1st as they are cheap and often the problem. You should look 1st at the inverter board to see if there are any cracked chips. Otherwise I would suggest a new/used LCD. BTW you can narrow down the issue by unplugging the cable from the MB to the LCD and or inverter board and try to boot with an external monitor connected. This rules out the issue being on the MB

Hello try to renew the display driver from here:

If the driver does not help the screen must be renewed.

This will cost approx 200 dollars.

Good luck

My Dell Inspiron 1420 screen goes black


If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LED flashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp.

I have a Dell Inspiron 1420 laptop. I left it running overnight and when I checked in the morning the screen was moving up and down. I tried playing videos in full screen and it does, too. It seems as...


boot in the safe mode, see if issue still occurs (F8 at boot) if it does, then likely there is a problem with the Video Card or the LCD itself, I'm leaning toward the video card.
Try flashing the bios to current and installing the most current video driver, see if anything changes.

A line ppears on my dell inspiron 1420


A thin line across teh screen is an indicator that the LCD is bad. There's not anything short of replacing the screen that will resolve this issue.
