    I was recently given a Dell Inspiron 1100. The computer itself works, but the screen is completly blank. I hooked another monitor to it and that works. Does anyone have any suggestions as to why the screen isn't working on the laptop?
    Thanks.

    Usually this problem is caused by the screen backlight or invertor not working. If you look really close (flashlight might help) can you see faint images?

    Yes, you can see them if you look close enough.

    The problem is fixable by replacing the parts. Although it is something that is possible for you to do it isn't something I would attempt without experience. Really don't know how much a repair shop would charge.
