    I have an IBM Thinkpad and recently my backlight has been failing (you can still barely make out then screen but its all dark) and sometimes it comes on when i start the computer but this is getting rarer and rarer.

    I can fix this but my problem is determening if the problem is the backlight or the inverter as i dont want to buy the wrong part. Is there a way to detect which is the problem or should i just buy both? which is it more commonly?
