Depends what you need help with...

What are the symptoms ? If the backlight has failed then you should still be able to see a faint image on screen if you shine a torch at it.

Yes, like this started happening two days ago where the backlightning would not come on like it would blink on for a sec then no more. The rest of the laptop works fine. If i put a bright light to the screen you can see whats on the screen. I did some research and i suspect its some kind of lcd inverter.

Inverter is certainly favourite... shouldn't be much problem getting hold of one. Might even just be drys on it... you never know... but given its such a pain pulling them apart maybe best to replace unless you were 100% sure it was fixed.

Dismantling without marking and damaging the case is always the hardest part. I see brig001 has just posted a link too

Also a favourite is the cable that runs through the hinges to the screen.

Invertors are a "common" failure on any LCD panel. It could be the backlight but that's less common.

No mine is not fixed at all. I just looked on the bay and saw some replacement inverters for cheap! But not to sure how to take them off as this would be my first time doing any like this! Ahhh
