Hi,
Could someone please help me with my laptop. I have a Dell Inspiron E1405 and when I turn it on I get a very dark screen, after I press F8 and get into safe mode I can slightly make it the words and it takes me to my desktop, but it is extremely dark to see much.

I have to say this problem started 2 days ago and initially once I would start the computer the Dell logo would come on followed by a clicking sound and the black screen.
Could this dark screen be due to a loose cable or do you need to get a new lcd?

I would really appreciate any help.
Thank you.

M.

More than likely the backlight inverter on your laptops screen is going bad.

Thank you so much SRX660.
I'll try to replace the inverter. Hopefully this will work and save me from having to replace the LCD.

Thank you!
