Dell Inspiron 5160 screen

The bottom right corner of the screen (near the time) gets hot and turns black after the computer is turned on. The black spot gets larger the longer the computer is on. The metal at the corner is very hot. Is this fixable?

The only way to fix it is to buy and install a replacement LCD.

LCD's are available for about $100 on EBay, but the you have to know the size a resolution of the screen before buying a replacement. (14.1 or 15 inch, XGA, SXGA+ or UXGA resolution)

Dell inspiron 5160 is dim.


This problem can also be due to the corruption of display drivers// assuming that you have checked the contrast and brightness do this step:- goto device manager// click on the display adaptar + sign and on the pop-up driver right click and select uninstall//
once the driver is uninstalled then restart the computer and check//
if that doesnot work then you can also upgrage the grafic card by going to the web site// even if this doesnot work then 100% the problem is with the notebook screen// contact best buy or wallmart or the retail store from where you have bought the notebook//

Bottom right corner of the LCD screen is very hot


I would first search the internet and Dells website to see if there is a recall on this item. If there is, they will replace for free.

Changing the inverter in screens always seems to complicate the LCD. I prefer to just purchase a new screen and everything works great. I replaced an inverter on a couple and had to change them again and again do to them slipping.

Replacing the screen is a bit more expensive but will save you time and money in the long run.

Screen gets hot and turns black on the bottom right


There are many causes of this. On cause can be the Cold cathode fluorescent
tube itself. This is a grossly misnamed device as the cathodes get very hot
indeed. One of the tube failure modes as they wear out is that the cathodes
can get much hotter than normal, and this affects the screen near it.
