Until you pull it apart you won't know and unless you actually test the inverter then you just have to take a chance and order and fit one.

If the invertor is receiving its supply and there is no high voltage output then its faulty.

inverters go out often, lamp failures and pinched lamp wires (that normally have high voltage on them, so be very careful around them) are also common. the inverter must be one made for the laptop you are repairing. "generic" (there really is no such thing) inverters may not fit properly in the case, might have different power and control connectors on them,or may have the wrong output voltage or output connectors on them. often a laptop or monitor manufacturer might use the same or a very similar inverter in various models.
