Re: [PLUG] OT: 1-color LCD

i've done a fair bit of laptop hw repair. i'd (carefully) pry your top half of the laptop apart (the screen part. you'll need a set of jeweler's/circuitry's screwdrivers to do this, the screws are quite tiny).

the backlight is a rather fragile thing, so i wouldn't be surprised much if it did break. i'd have to know which way it landed, where it hit first, and what the floor was made of to be of any more help.

Subject: [PLUG] OT: 1-color LCD

If a person dropped a laptop and the LCD no longer lights up, but an external monitor works fine, what are the chances of the problem being just a broken backlight?  What else is the problem likely to be?

Bill Gates is to hacking as Sid Vicious was to the Sex Pistols: no talent, everyone hates him, and he's just in it for the fame and money.
