Dell inspiron 5160 labtop backlight


Hi,

It seems to me the inverter is busted. That is why the backlight just went out. If you are still covered by your warranty Dell technical support will replace the inverter and i believe they will also include the LCD kit.

Hope this helps

Dell Inspiron 5160 Black screen on power up


There is a small board that the power button is integrated into that connects to the motherboard. When this power board malfunctions it will cause this issue with the machine. It can, and quite often does, damage the motherboard when it malfinctions. You should take the machine in for a power board replacement and a diagnostic to make sure that the power board hasn't damaged the motherboard.
