Question about Dell Inspiron E1505 Notebook

Notebook inverter or backlight problem

Hi,

I have a Dell Inspiron E1505. When I boot up I never know whether I'll be able to see the screen or not. It's an intermittent problem but more times than not, the screen is completey black. I'm assuming this is a inverter or backlight issue. Any ideas? Also, can it be fixed on location so I don't have to give up my computer for several days.

Thanks for your insight.

Steve

I have the same type of Dell laptop( I am on it right now). It sounds like your graphics card is going bad. And if you are still under warranty and contact Dell, it is possible that they will come to you to fix it. If you are Not under warranty, it is still very possible to get them to come to you, but of course you will have to pay for services and parts if your computer is still not under warranty.

Hi i have a dull screen on my dell inspiron 6000. i have replaced the inverter and replaced the backlight but still dull. is there anything else i can do?


Maybe your problem was the Video Card. Did you try an external monitor before you replaced the inverter and backlight? Try an external monitor and if it does the same thing then the Video Card is bad.

Hi lewis haywar,

Try to replace the LCD inverter in your laptop. Most common issues on LCD are due to failing LCD inverter. It fails more often than LCD cable or LCD backlight does.

Please let me know if this solution helped to resolve your issue.

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

It's a faulty backlight (screen).
Replace screen (same dell part number) with inverter, otherwise screen can be dark.

Might be a problem with your memory,your video driver,or the screens inverter board.
If you have more than 1 bank of memory,try removing one bank at a time and see if this corrects the problem. If so ,replace the bank that was removed when your screen works properly.
Also ,try updating the driver through the "Windows Update" service. If neither of those works, you may have a faulty inverter board.
