If you are having a problem with the display of your laptop, don’t immediately assume it is a bad screen, it is possible that it is simply the inverter board that is going bad and would be a much cheaper fix than replacing the whole LCD Screen.  If the problems with your display include any of the following symptoms, it is possible that your inverter board is the problem and needs to be replaced or reconnected.

  1. If the video on your screen is faint/dim or blank it is most likely that your inverter board is going bad and needs replacing.
  2. If there is unusually high amounts of excessive heat coming from the bottom area of your LCD screen it is possible that your inverter board has a bad or loose connection and may just need to be replugged in.
