Default Dell Laptop LCD Dark

I had a customer bring in a DELL laptop and it appeared that the backlight was out on the LCD. I ordered a new and it still lookst the same. Will whole mobo have to be replaced?

Perhaps the inverter needed replacing...not the screen.

Do you mean it came with the new screen? That's not usually the case as it is a separate item. This component, usually at the bottom below the screen, fires up the screen backlight so if your screen is dim it could be screen backlight(replace screen) or the inverter(replace the board) or indeed the inverter supply cable.

The inverter is a separate piece below the screen. One end of the inverter connects to the video and the other end connects to the backlight.
