I have an Inspiron 1521. The screen is dark, though I can still vaguely see that it is still displaying if you look closely. I'm guessing the LED backlight isn't working. I was going to recycle it so I reinstalled Vista. Through the whole process, the screen worked just fine. I turned off the computer, now it doesn't work anymore.
What would be the root cause, a bad wire or short somewhere? Moving the screen around doesn't seem to help. Is there a way to fix this easily or should I just get rid of it?
