I think i know the problem - your pc is trying to display on an external monitor but im guessing you dont have one. If this is the problem simply press Fn and F5 at the same time on your keyoard. Sometime you may have to press it multiple times.
Do you get the same result if its plugged in or running off battery? Try holding down the "FN" key or function key and using one of the Function keys i believe its F6 on the sony's to brighten up your screen if that doesn't work try downloading and reinstalling your video driver and finally you may have a video card issue
can you plug your computer to a regular monitor there is a video conector in the back of your computer so if the video is ok on the external monitor that means LCD inverter may not be the right one that you just did the replacement
How do I check it....i have went into the control panel and tried to reset password...but....thanks in advance Tom
