LCD Display Problem

The LCD display on my Dell Inspiron 6000 is black. On boot up, I get the Dell Logo for 1 second, then everything goes black. I can hear my HD going, and I can even see the screen extremely faint, and if I hold a light up to it, I can see a bit of the current display. Through my research, I think it is the inverter and/or the backlight.

My question is,

should I bother trying to hunt down an inverter and backlight for cheap and fix it myself, or should I just replace the entire LCD assembly? The entire assembly is close to $300, and the inverter/backlight is under $100.

Has anyone done these jobs before? How hard is it to replace the inverter/backlight? Do I need to worry about the sealing gas? Any help would be appreciated...

I'm guessing your warranty has expired?
