Hello
I was wondering if someone had any advice.
My laptop's inverter is makeing a buzzing sound and the screen is very dim. If i try to up the brightness the backlight shuts off(the pixels still work). Sometimes the screen starts flickering and working again but if i shut off the computer then its dark again the next time i run it again. What is more likely to be broken the backlight or the inverter?

Could be either but the inverter is much easier (and possibly cheaper) to replace.

What's the make and full model information of the laptop ? (Probably on a label underneath).
