Inspiron 600m - Screen goes black, low light, bad inverter?
One of my parts computers came without a power cord or a hard drive. And it was never tested by the seller. I threw a spare 600m hard drive in it and it booted up fine loaded and got to the desktop fine.
I was playing around cleaning up the hard drive. And the screen went black after about 30 minutes of use. I shined a flash light down it from the top and you can still see the screen and operate the computer, its just the backlight has seemed to disappear from the screen. Now let me add that upon first start up the screen appeared to have a red hue to it during the initial booting before Win XP took over the book process. Not sure if that means anything.
Is this positively the screen inverter, or could it potentially be something else?
