How can you tell if the backlight or inverter is bad on an Inspiron
4150? The desktop starts to show up then fades away. Any Ideas?

Re: Inverter or Backlight?

It's very difficult to tell for sure, since a failure of either results
in loss of backlighting of the display.  Usually, you either have to
substitute, or you just have to flip a coin and try one, and if that
doesn't fix it, try the other.  Note that most shops don't replace
backlights, they tend to tell you to replace the entire panel.
