I tell you the whole story;
First the bezel of my inspiron 1525 started to tear apart a little bit, so I was able to see the hinge.
I started later to have some display issues, had to close, re-open the lid sometimes several times to get it working. Then I could see a dark area on the bottom left corner of the screen, very hot at touching.
Until the nice day that it didn't work anymore at all, at startup I could just see Dell for a fraction of second before it goes off again, and I can sometimes see on my laptop screen an extremely faint image. (I have to navigate my multiboot without seing it, which hopefully I know enough to deal with...)
I am working now with an external monitor, that switches on only when windows is loaded (but it's not such a big problem)so it's not a graphic-card hardware problem,
However I wanted my laptop to work again; So I bought a new inverter, replaced the older one, and I still have the same exact issue: dell screen for 1/10 a second, faint image and so on..
So, what should I try next?
I read it could be the back light tube; but can't it be another defectuous item such as a wire ?
Thank you for the support!
