inspiron 5150 no internal display

Hello,i have a inspiron 5150,the display worked the last time I used it. But it has been sitting 4 awhile and when I powered it on I had no display,so I hooked up an external monitor hit the fn-f8 an it works just fine.So can anyone tell me what might be the problem? I have read alot of forums on here but none of the display issues I read about we're 5150 models,Please HELP I don't want to just start buying parts and replacing them. Thanks Justin:emotion-4:

Most likely it's the backlight bulb;  less likely, the inverter.  The bulb can be replaced for about $100 by an LCD repair specialist.  It's NOT  a job for a novice.

Re: inspiron 5150 no internal display

Ok, So onr more thing that i'am not understanding is that it was working but i'am told that supposededly it it was working fine and then dell told her that it needed a new hard drive. Ok so she put it in a box and ordered a new hard drive,so she asked me if I would put it in 4 her. I take go 2 replace the hard drive she ordered the wrong one. So I decided 2 fire it up with the old hard drive,and no display,just a light blue screen. Ok so hooked up an external monitor and it works fine except that I can't get into bois to check anything. Shhhhuueee with all that said,inverter or backlight bulb????? Thanks so much 4 ur input.:emotion-4:
