Question about Sony VAIO VGN-NR498E/S Notebook PC

1 Answer

My Sony Vaio VGN-NR498E laptop with Windows Vista recently had some issues. The light in the screen seems to have went out. If you hold a lamp up to the screen you can make out the background of the screen that is up but the light will not come on at all. I was just curious to see if anyone knew how to fix this problem.

A dim laptop lcd screen is either the result of 1) a faulty inverter which is a separate piece from the lcd screen or 2) a burned out backlight which is part of the lcd screen. In the majority of instances, the inverter is the cause of the problem and not the backlight as most people tend to assume and therefore does not require the purchase of a lcd screen.
I have done some research and it seems you can fetch a new inverter for around $59.00
