    Okay, here is my issue.... i have a dell inspiron 6000 (that is no longer under warranty) and the lcd has gone dim, and then would not boot. so i replaced the motherboard and the screen was still dim. i then replaced the lcd screen, and it is still dim???? i checked the lcd screen on the same model laptop, and the screen worked?? at this point i am completely stumped and i was hoping someone could give me some ideas?? i have already checked the hard drive, it is fine, battery is fine, boy do i need some help on this one? Thanks for any ideas in advance....:confused:

    Check the ribbon cable connections for the screen and if you had the option for the add-in card check the card is seated properly.

    It's the inverter...the thing at the bottom of the LCD panel on screens that come out of Dells. Check that :D

    Wow this may sound completely stupid and I don't own a laptop but aren't there function keys that allow you to adjust the brightness and gamma? That would be the first thing I would check. And I'm sure you already have but just checking :rolleyes:

    Good luck
